Once you’ve created a job and reviewed it, you may begin inviting candidates to complete the video interview.
All you need to do is copy your invitation link and send it to the candidates via your preferred method of communication - we suggest email or LinkedIn messenger as the best method to use.
To find your invite link please click on the Jobs tab from the main menu then select the job that you wish to invite candidates to interview to from the list:
Once you have clicked on the desired job you will see the following screen with a button to Invite candidates:
You have 2 options for inviting candidates:
Share Link (Recommended method)
Once you click on Invite you will have the option to copy and share the link with candidates as shown here:
When you are inviting candidates via share link to complete the video interview it is good to give them some context either over the phone beforehand or in the email. This will improve the chance of them completing a video for you. We suggest the following tried and tested template for your invitations:
Hi <candidate name>,
Thanks for your interest in the role with <company>. I have reviewed your application and would like to invite you to answer a few interview questions on video.
You will have the chance to practice as many times as you like and don't be afraid to show your personality. Please follow the link below to take you to our video interview platform - I would be grateful if you could complete this at your earliest convenience.
