“We have flipped the hiring process by creating a confidential forum that gives candidates more control of the submission process and less time applying for numerous positions,” notes vCandidates.com’s CEO and Founder LT Ladino Bryson. “We couldn’t think of a better partner than SkillSurvey to launch with that will assist candidates in making a concise presentation of themselves and expedite the hiring process for recruiting professionals.”
