One day, Francois De Wet sat through an entire day of interviews, only to discover at the end that no candidate was as glamorous as their CV. An entire day wasted. Very quickly, the ‘why do we keep doing interviews like this?’ became ‘how can we do it better?’
A short while later, Francois landed up co-founding Wamly because he believed that real-time interviews are wasting your time. Why? Because YOU need to be there.
Fast forward a year or two, Wamly’s video interview software enables candidates to do one-way interviews, and you can review them in your own time. This cuts the recruitment process from months to days, interviews from hours to minutes. The thinking is, internet banking replaced cheques, Wamly wants to replace fruitless face-to-face interviews.
