What is an Interview kit?

When hiring new talent, you will most likely want to meet the candidates for one or several interviews. By creating Interview kits, the hiring team will be aligned regarding the skills and traits you're looking for in your new colleague, and how to conduct the interview.

This helps you give all candidates a fair recruitment process and keep communication with your team smooth. The better the communication and alignment internally, the better the candidate experience. Win-win!

A Company Admin user needs to activate this feature in the Add-on feature center to get started

Set it up

Once this feature has been activated head over to Settings → Recruitment → Interview kits to get started. By clicking the pink + button on the right-hand side you can create new kits and customize them to your needs. ​

Name / Instructions

Start by giving the kit a name, and the instructions you want the team members using it to see. You might want to use different kits for different roles and/or stages of the process, so make sure to name them in a clear and structured way.

Keep your interview kits even more organized by grouping them with tags.

Skills and traits

Next, add the skills and traits that are important for the role and that you want to evaluate with this interview kit.

You can select existing skills and traits from the drop-down menu, or create new ones by clicking + Add a skill or trait.

Skills will be marked in blue, and Traits in yellow.


What do you want to ask the candidate? The next step is to add questions based on the Skills and Traits chosen for this job (1) or general questions you want to ask during the interview, for eg., the candidate's salary expectations (2).

Add Interview kits to the job process

When the interview kit is set up, it can be added to any job process in the editing mode. Go to the step Evaluation and click Add next to the kit/s you want to make to use for this job process. Any Interview kit matching the Skills and traits added to the job will be highlighted as 💡Suggested.

Once added, you'll see the option to assign this Interview kit to a certain stage in the process. The kit will then be pre-selected when scheduling an interview with the candidate at that stage.

Attaching an interview kit to a stage is especially useful if you're planning on using multiple kits in the same job.

Add and view Interview kit feedback

Any candidate added to a job containing Interview kits will automatically have the Interviews tab visible on their candidate card.

In this section, you fill out the feedback during the interview with the candidate. If you're not ready to publish your interview feedback, you can save it as a draft that only you can see. This allows you to continue working on that interview feedback later, from any computer.

In the list of Interview kits, you will see a small badge that indicates that the interview feedback is saved as a draft. This is also where you can edit your feedback.

All added feedback, from your team or yourself, will be displayed on the left-hand side of the candidate card, under Interview feedback.

Why can’t I see my colleague's feedback?

When you schedule a meeting, you will see the option to connect an Interview kit to the interview and decide who should leave feedback once the interview is completed. Like so:

If you’ve been asked to leave feedback after joining an interview with a candidate, you have to submit your own feedback before you can see your other team members feedback under the Interview feedback section. This is to help reduce biased recruitment!
