Sonru… or the day I ditched Skype, MSN and YouTube altogether!

2009 is probably going to be remembered as the year the Irish recruitment industry exploded! Why is that? Well this is what I am here to tell you today!

Late 2008 and the first quarter of 2009 was probably (Carlsberg) the worst time for the recruitment agencies in Ireland. Majority of the agencies have let a percentage of their staff go. Quite a number of them vent under and have been sold for not really desired (by their founders) sums.

And then it has happened! Sonru was born!

Sonru.com launched in Public Beta on the 27th of February. The launch took place in the Enniscorthy Enterprise & Technology Centre in Wexford in the company of Paul Kehoe TD.

So what is this Sonru and why will it change your life as a recruiter in Ireland? Here is the magic answer: Sonru is a really simple video interview tool based on the web.

What will you use this Sonru for: Sonru is used for lots of different interviewing purposes, the most common being, 1st round job interviews and mock interview preparation.

How much will it set you back? Not only is Sonru convenient it is also very cost effective. Also the folks at Sonru strongly believe that – We believe Sonru is great value for money.

So now you know. Sonru is The Thing in 2009. And just in case you didn’t get it by now, here is a comparison chart for you:

And this is why you should as well as I did, ditch your Skype, MSN and YouTube instantly! This is all so ’08! Sonru is NOW! Sonru is the future! Long live Sonru!

The author of the above post is not in any way affiliated with any of the above companies Sonru and Skype wile holds some shares of MSFT and GOOG, but their value seems to be melting quickly. Obviously accelerated by the Sonru arrival).

  1. hi there, is it really that painfull for you that you enver link to external websites? In this case sonru would deserves a link, not just an address hidden in the text…

  2. @ Johny: I am thinking of the browser as well…. You know,… we could ditch the browser. And perhaps the mobile phone as well, when I think of it. Sonru does it all!

    @crowen: Sonru does not need a link to it’s site. Soon enough Sykpe.com, Msn.com and pretty much the rest of all the other sites will be pointing to the domain anyway, so what is the point? :)

  3. Wow – everyone will like to work for company that does interviews like this. Never see company interviewer, talk to webcam like “I am good girl for a date” on already prepared questions. Dream interview. Thank God it is only an irish company. If this was in USA both Sonru and Enterprise Ireland would be wiped off the Earth by court order of breaching privacy and respect for the candidates.

  4. predarg has raised a very valid point. i too think we must be ensured that this act is completely legal. i too have found sonru very interesting and handy. i think it definitely got a very bright future , but before that we must be convinced that we are with a clean organization.

  5. hi

    This is a wonderful opinion. The things mentioned are unanimous and needs to be appreciated by everyone

  6. One must prepare a resume when applying for part time
    work. Even if the person does not have experience, it
    will show the employer that a little effort was made
    on the part of the applicant in producing something on
    paper.
