InterviewCAM technology slashes games recruiting risks

London, Wimbledon, June 2, 2006.

New InterviewCAM technology on offer from Interactive Selection, the market leader for recruitment working only in computer games and interactive entertainment, has significantly improved the chances of job move success for both employer and job seeker and cut the cost of international transfers.

InterviewCAM technology using desktop webcams and Skype software is on offer to all Interactive Selection clients. The ability for potential employers to interview candidates on the other side of the world without moving from their desk at no cost brings the old phone interview into the 21st Century.

A surprising number of job offers in games development are made without the job seeker meeting the line manager face to face. This technological breakthrough from Interactive Selection will fast diminish the chance that this lack of face to face meeting with lead to job move disaster.

"This will revolutionise the long distance job interview" commented David Smith, Managing Director of Interactive Selection. "Too often international hires are made following 2 or 3 phone conversations and this creates the real risk of hiring failure. The increased confidence in seeing your new hire or new boss, full screen, for as long as you like at no cost is a 'no brainer' for all those involved in recruitment. We have been using InterviewCAM technology inter-office and inter-consultant for a while and now offer this to all our clients."

Those interested in testing the quality of InterviewCAM images can go online and see the Interactive Selection office at www.interviewcam.net. Demos for clients and potential clients can be organized by contacting David Smith or an Interactive Selection consultant.
