The Challenges of Interview Scheduling

Traditional methods of coordinating interviews can be incredibly time-consuming and often result in scheduling conflicts or delays.

The hassle of manually aligning the schedules of interviewers and candidates only adds to the burden.

Key Features of Highr's Interview Scheduling Module

Automated Scheduling:

The module accommodates specific restrictions such as unavailable days, preferred hours, and whether the interview will be conducted in-person or remotely

Securing Interviewer Availability:

Highr's solution offers a comprehensive approach to managing interviewers' schedules, ensuring accuracy and avoiding potential conflicts. Much like a Doodle poll, interviewers are required to confirm their availability, providing a clear overview of accessible time slots.

As soon as a proposed time slot is sent to a candidate, placeholders are placed in the interviewers' calendars, reserving the time and preventing double bookings. Once the candidate confirms the interview time, these placeholders are seamlessly replaced with the definitive meeting details. This streamlined process guarantees that interviewers' schedules remain synchronized and up-to-date, while also minimizing conflicts and maintaining an efficient interview scheduling process.
