Interview scheduling is often an ominous task at hand for hiring teams. Shortlisting the right candidate for the right job profile from a sea of applicants is time-consuming. In addition to this, scheduling the entire interview process is also a tedious chore. It can certainly get burdensome for the HR Team to sift through the applicants and further, conduct the job interviews.

Considering the current pandemic situation, using an interview scheduling tool to maintain and manage your interviews is indeed the best thing to do.

Some recent statistics suggest that –

  • The hiring process takes an average of up to 25 days (almost a month).
  • Over half of the HR managers invest around 3-4 hours per day in their candidates, hiring and recruitment process.
  • The tedious paperwork can make hiring teams feel pressurized and burned out.
  • The hiring volumes keep on increasing. But at the same time, the hiring teams remain of the same size which is the biggest bottleneck.

However, the mind-numbing manual interview scheduling system is getting a makeover! Automation is becoming a part of interview scheduling making the process of recruitment more streamlined. Ease your interview scheduling pains with Jobsoid.

How does automation work in the interview scheduling process?

Automation makes use of different kinds of sleek tools, to balance out the talent acquisition team’s workloads, which paves the way for greater flexibility. This in turn leads to the effective working of the different administrative functions giving rise to improved efficiency.

What are the different tasks recruiters can perform with automation?

Automation makes use of a tool called ‘event scheduling solution’ where the recruiters can set up a time slot where the said interview team is available. They can invite candidates via mass emails or text messages.

Recruiters can also organize different types of interview calendars, including video interviewing solutions. You can create interviews with time slots which allows the candidates to choose the desired time and inform their availability. These solutions diminish the chances of duplication and convergence of the interviews at the same time.

In addition to this, there is also an option of sending reminders to the potential candidates before an interview, along with the time, address, date and day of the week. Many times the credentials of a candidate are impressive but due to some of the unavoidable circumstances, the job-seeker cannot make it for the interview. At such times, advanced video interviewing software is a huge draw to save both time and not lose an extremely deserving candidate.

So as you can see, embracing automation in interview scheduling has a win-win situation for both the interviewer and the interviewee. Organizations, big or small are wholeheartedly ready to accept it due to the numerous benefits it offers. Efficiency is by far the biggest positive impact and surely here to stay.

From a tactical perspective to a strategic approach, automation in interview scheduling provides an invaluable opportunity for HR leaders and hiring managers to aim for better team performances and hire the right candidate.
