Feb 8, 2016
ATLANTA, Feb. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- PGi, the world's largest dedicated provider of collaboration software and services, today announced its partnership with the Metro Atlanta Chamber's ChooseATL initiative, focused on recruiting top talent to the metro Atlanta region. The Metro Atlanta Chamber (MAC) relied on PGi's iMeet® as part of the recently completed job interview competition for college graduates known as "The Ultimate Job Interview Contest."
Dedicated to marketing the city of Atlanta to millennials across the US, ChooseATL needed a highly reliable, efficient and cost-effective way to screen recent college graduates remotely as part of the contest. iMeet made the virtual interview process seamless and easy for both the contest judges and the students. In addition, iMeet provided an easy way to flip on a webcam so that students could jump into a video interview.
"The use of iMeet for the semifinal round of the Ultimate Job Interview Contest proved to be invaluable," said Kate Atwood, vice president of marketing, MAC. "With entries from all over the country, iMeet allowed us to have face-to-face interviews with each contestant, as though they were sitting in the same room with us, helping us select our qualifiers to bring to our finale event on January 6th in Atlanta."
"We know how important it is for video conferencing technology to 'just work,' particularly in high pressure situations like for the Ultimate Job Interview Contest," said Leo Tucker, Global Marketing SVP, PGi. "We greatly value our partnership with MAC and are pleased to help ChooseATL to identify the region's next generation of young leaders."
