Dropque is a simple one-way video interviewing solution that helps applicants showcase their personalities and help recruiters streamline the process while showcasing company culture.

It is designed in such a way that companies can interview candidates anywhere and cut recruitment time by 50% by helping them create video interviews and invite candidates to respond to them with timed responses.

Dropque’s proprietary technology allows companies to discover young talent regardless of geographical location, financial barriers, IT problems, and more. As many young people are facing recruitment from insurgency groups, criminal gangs, and terrorists, it’s important that companies can successfully battle this with their own recruitment processes. With more young minds active in the workforce, economies grow and become less prone to violence.
