Automation Removes the Pain from Candidate Interview Scheduling

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • Free up your recruiters’ valuable time and boost candidate experience with software that automates and syncs participants’ back-and-forth when scheduling interviews.
  • Candidate interview scheduling is one of the most fundamental steps in an organization’s hiring process, and a tedious, chaotic manual system is a logistical nightmare for recruiters and leaves candidates with a terrible first impression.
  • Coordinating both candidates’ and the interview team’s busy, always-changing schedules is a universal pain point for recruiters, said Steve Tiufekchiev, chief evangelist at Chicago-based recruiting software company Yello.
  • Interview-scheduling software helps eliminate back-and-forth e-mails and time-intensive phone calls, allows the hiring team to view upcoming interview schedules in real time, and lets them spend more time sourcing and engaging with candidates, Tiufekchiev said.
  • The process is simple: Once a candidate is selected for the screening process, recruiters provide candidates with available time slots to schedule interviews by e-mail or SMS message.
