Terry Crawford, Founder, InitialView

InitialView was founded in Beijing, China in 2009, and in a short time it has become a world leader in interview services, having provided interviews to hundreds of applicants to top U.S. and U.K. universities and job seekers to top multinationals. InitialView serves two primary markets: that of U.S. and U.K. universities which want to have a more authentic look at their international applicants, and that of job seekers who want to set themselves apart. For both, they use in-person, unscripted interviews which are then uploaded to the proprietary interview platform. The proprietary platform allows viewers to, within seconds, determine the interviewee’s English ability and interpersonal skills. Their technology is currently patent-pending in both the U.S. and China.
