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