The service lets candidates go through simulations that will give employers insights into their readiness and qualifications unique to each job, while they can experience also what a typical day might be like, with the aim of better informing their job search.

All of Interviewed’s staff, including CEO Darren Nix and co-founders Daniel O’Shea and Chris Bakke, become Indeed employees as part of the acquisition.

The heart disease charity has chosen Workday to help its managers have easier access to data, making them more efficient so they can spend more time on the shop floor and streamline everything into just one system.
