Methods to Set-up Interviews
Quick Pad Interviews
Recruiters can create a quick pad by providing the email address of the candidate. The link for a quick pad is immediately generated and the recruiter can share this link with the interviewer and the candidate by their preferred mode. HackerRank does not send any notifications for quick pads. The recruiter has the responsibility to keep all the participants informed about the scheduled time and provide them with the generated links. Once the link is shared the candidates can join HackerRank’s lobby where they will wait till the Interviewer admits them to the interview.
You can schedule an interview between the candidate and the interviewers. HackerRank sends out email notifications to the candidates as well as the interviewers specifying the details such as the link to the interview, the date, and the time. The interviewers might also receive additional details such as the phone number of the candidate, additional notes, and the resume of the candidate if specified by the recruiter. Refer to the Scheduling an Interview topic for more information.
