HackerRank Tests integrates with Jobvite to trigger HackerRank Test invites directly from Jobvite. Recruiters managing candidate profiles in Jobvite can use this integration to carry out a seamless and efficient candidate skills assessment for different requisitions without leaving their Jobvite account.
This article provides useful troubleshooting tips for some common issues encountered while enabling and using the integration.
