Hiring Manager’s biggest challenge is sifting through hundreds of CV’s to get down to a shortlist of candidates suitable for interviewing. Canditute is a recruiting software start-up concept that helps automate this process. Hiring Managers set questions and candidates answer via video, which helps them get a much better sense of the candidate whilst giving the candidate the opportunity to stand out from the other applicants.
