SALT LAKE CITY, Dec. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- On-demand digital interviewing services are being widely adopted across hiring organizations, from the Fortune 500 to small and medium sized businesses.

"In 2013 we'll continue to see widespread adoption of popular technologies like digital interviewing, which not only changes the recruiting model for businesses and job seekers alike, but also the financial implications of inefficient recruiting processes.
