Less fuss, lower cost than Sonru.

Screening a stack of resumes isn’t easy. You have limited information to decide who advances to the next round in the hiring process. That’s guesswork! And every mistake you make costs your business bundles of resources scheduling, meeting, and following up with unqualified candidates. 

HelloCecil eliminates that guesswork. Use one-way video interviews to go beyond the resume and engage with the real person. Gain valuable insights into their personality and presentation. And get the full picture you need to advance a candidate with confidence.

It’s that simple. Watch video to learn more.

The compare feature is my favorite. It’s like having all of the candidates in a room with me answering the same question. It becomes so obvious who the best candidates are.
