What is an Interview kit?
When hiring new talent, you will most likely want to meet the candidates for one (several) interview(s). By creating interview kits, anyone who is part of the hiring process for this role will all be coordinated and in-the-loop about the what information is needed 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 internally, the better the candidate experience. Win-win!
Set it up
As a company admin, head over to your Skill center to enable this feature. Then go to Settings→Interview kit. This is where you can set up and manage your interview kits. You can create as many interview kits and customise them to your needs.
If you haven't created any interview kits, start off by clicking Create your first interview kit.
Name and Instructions
Start by giving the kit a name, and the instructions you want the team members 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.
Next, add the questions to ask during the interview. To use preexisting questions, add them by clicking Select questions. If you want to add a new question, click + Create question.
Then, add a scorecard with traits and skills you're looking for in your new colleague. Add the criteria from the list, by selecting an existing one, or add a new one by typing it in and hitting enter.
Lastly, add the kit by clicking Add kit. Your team now has all the necessary information for the interview and you’re good to go!
Add Interview kits to the job process
When you have the interview kit set up, add it to the job in question. In the job creating/editing process, go to the step Interview kits and Add the kits you want to use for this process.
You can add multiple kits to the process, and then drag and drop them in them in the order you want them to be displayed.
If a candidate applies to a job containing interview kits, these will automatically be added to the candidate's profile under the tab Interviews. When you're then meeting with the candidate, you can work with the interview kit by clicking Add feedback. There you'll find the guidelines and questions for the interview, where you can leave/edit your feedback.
Everyone in the hiring team for the job in question, can leave feedback. The team’s feedback will be visible on the right hand side of the candidate card, under the Interview feedback section.
Where is my old scorecard?
If you've worked with the scorecard feature before this update, worry not - you can still see these gradings in the candidate's profile. Just take a look at the kit called Scorecard on the right hand side of the profile.
