Batch Assign Interviews  

The Interview Checked Applicants function allows you to simultaneously assign multiple applicants to an Interview. You can access this function from the Search Interviews and Clipboard pages.

  1. After searching for and selecting applicants, click the Search Action button, then select Interview Checked Applicants.
  2. Select an Interview Type, Date/Time, Location, Interviewer(s), and Designation(s). Then, click Submit. To select multiple interviewers, press and hold down the control key (Command on Mac) while selecting the applicable interviewers.

Note: When batch assigning applicants to an interview, be sure there are enough interview slots to accommodate all applicants. If the batch of applicants outnumbers the available slots, only the available slots will be filled; the remaining applicants will not be assigned.  

Assigning Interviews

  1. To assign an interview to an applicant, go to the applicant's Interviews panel and click New Interview (note that applicants can also use the Applicant Gateway to select an interview date and time.)
  2. Select the Interview type and date/time.
  3. Assign an Interviewer and location and click Submit. To select multiple interviewers, press and hold down the control key (Command on Mac) while selecting the applicable Interviewers. Only the Interviewers available on this date/time are visible in the drop-down list.

Submitting Interview Results

When a user is assigned an interview, he or she can provide feedback such as scores and comments.

  2. Enter overall comments and overall remarks, then click Complete Interview to submit your responses. Note that If using questions, the individual score field is required (if configured).  Also, the overall score is calculated by summing or averaging the individual question scores, or it can be entered independently by the interviewer (depending on question configuration).
