NEW YORK (August 6, 2014) – Take the Interview, providers of the comprehensive cloud and mobile technology platform that solves the challenges of the interviewing process, announced today that company co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, Danielle Weinblatt, was selected by Workforce magazine as a 2014 Game Changer.

The fourth-annual Game Changers awards recognize those next-generation workplace leaders under the age of 40 who have proven themselves dedicated to the growth and success of the HR world. All nominees were judged on their professional accomplishments as well as their other achievements, with the winners selected by Workforce’s senior writers and editors.

“As a leader, Danielle pushes Take the Interview to think beyond the immediate in order to deliver interview management solutions that enable recruiters to better understand and engage with today’s top talent in order to improve hiring across their organization,” said Anthony Cintron, co-founder and Chief Technology Officer at Take the Interview. “The consummate problem solver, Danielle is the driving force behind TTI with business savvy and industry acumen needed to change the game. She is truly visionary.”

Weinblatt co-founded Take the Interview in 2012 after recognizing a number of inefficiencies in the interview process, including wasted time screening poor-fit candidates. Working to find a better solution for companies and job candidates alike, Weinblatt launched TTI to solve problems across the entire interview process by optimizing communication, standardizing processes, reducing complexity and streamlining workflow, regardless of the interviewing medium being used (video, phone, in-person). Dedicated to researching and developing solutions that solve companies’ complex HR and recruiting challenges, Weinblatt leads TTI as it transforms talent acquisition with its Interview Management Platform™, the only comprehensive cloud and mobile technology platform specifically developed to optimize the interviewing process.

A well-regarded thought leader in the HR technology space, Weinblatt is a sought after public speaker who recently appeared at #HRTechTank, the iRecruit Expo in Amsterdam and the South by Southwest (SXSW®) Conferences & Festivals. Weinblatt’s professional experience and business philosophies have also appeared in Forbes, Inc. magazine and The Huffington Post.

“It’s exciting to be named a Game Changer by Workforce magazine for my work with Take the Interview,” commented Weinblatt. “Having worked as a hiring manager, I understand the challenges associated with the talent acquisition process as well as the impact that a poor quality of hire can have on the bottom line, and it’s those problems that TTI aims to solve with our Interview Management Platform.”

HRchitect Tech Vendor News: Talent Acquisition Transformation at NBCUniversal: New Case Study from Take the Interview

May 1, 2014

Innovative Strategy Combined with Digital Interviewing Technology Streamlines Recruiting, Promotes Interactive Candidate Experience and Robust Talent Pipeline

NEW YORK (April 22, 2014) – In conjunction with Take the Interview, providers of the comprehensive cloud and mobile technology platform that solves the challenges of the interviewing process, the media giant, NBCUniversal announced details of a new case study, Strategic Talent Acquisition at NBCUniversal. Looking to overhaul their existing talent acquisition efforts, NBCUniversal worked to redevelop their approach to candidate screening, implementing a new careers website and interviewing technology to support the strategy long-term.

Following an acquisition by Comcast, NBCUniversal found itself in the midst of a cultural change. With an opportunity to transform their talent acquisition process, NBCUniversal worked to understand and advance the company’s existing assets and introduced new technology to improve recruiting practices and engage top talent.

The case study details those steps NBCUniversal took to assess the company’s values and external communications before moving to outline their plan of action. Moving to incorporate more engaging content and communication strategies, the study illustrates how social media and digital interviewing revolutionized the candidate experience at NBCUniversal and introduced the company to an extensive talent pool with varied skill sets. Potential candidates can interact with NBCUniversal before applying, to learn more about the company’s values and open requisitions, while recruiters are able to screen and qualify potential employees via video auditions, before moving ahead with additional interviews. The free flow of communication combined with digital interviewing technology have added transparency, improved decision making and reduced time-to-fill.

“NBCUniversal was eager to empower their recruiters, hiring managers and job candidates. Considering an increased focus on the candidate experience through an interactive and convenient process, NBCUniversal had a number of factors to account for, and implementing strategy and technology that includes digital interviewing helped streamline the company’s overall approach,” said Danielle Weinblatt, co-founder and CEO of Take the Interview. “NBCUniversal developed a truly engaging strategy.”

Michelle Amici, head of talent acquisition for technology and engineering for NBCUniversal, commented, “The quicker and more effectively we can identify cultural fit, assess communication skills and evaluate candidates, the better hiring decisions we can make. Digital interviewing has helped us accomplish this goal.”
