Candidates, who will be able to use the service free, won't know what questions are coming, and cannot rehearse their answers, he said.

Costs for businesses will be based on their size, with discounts for companies that host personalized pages on the site or buy banner advertisements, Taulton said.

He said Kudu Design and Marketing of the United Kingdom is handling the web development, which will include the ability to securely capture and store videos online. No software installations will be required, he said.

Mackenzie Hall, a new UCO graduate and probation officer with the state Department of Corrections, said he's excited to help Taulton market

“Baby boomers are leaving today's workforce,” Hall said. “It's time for the '80s and '90s generation, and what we do best is technology.”

“This will give employers a chance to view the person before they come into their office,” he said, “and get a feeling of who they are, how they speak, their body language and how they dress.”

The service also will allow businesses to expand their application processes to out-of-state and international candidates, he said.
