Step 3: Find the Applicant You Want to Interview

Find the applicant you want to interview in the list. You can also find applicants specific to a job opening, if that’s easier, by clicking on the “Jobs” tab in the left sidebar.

Step 4: Click “Contact” in the Action Column

Once you’ve found your applicant, click “Contact” which will open a pop-up with various fields. 

Step 4: Send Interview Information to Applicant

Select “Request Interview” from the drop-down menu. An automated message will appear with job-appropriate messaging that you can customize. If applicable, toggle “Include scheduled link” and paste your calendar link so the applicant can directly schedule their interview. Hit "Send" to send the interview request.

Additional Information

  • Scheduling Links: If you have a pre-defined scheduling link, the applicant will receive it. If not, they'll get your contact email and a phone number (if you’ve provided a phone number in your personal settings).
  • Message History: All communications will be logged in the applicant's messaging history, providing a full view of the application journey.
  • Status Updates: Sending an offer will automatically update the applicant's stage, keeping everyone on the team in the loop.

Note: Applicants will only receive an email (instead of getting a text as well) if the hiring manager has not completed registration or added a valid cell phone number.
