When conducting structured interviews, there will be two roles in your hiring team:
- Feedback editor
This article explains each type of user/role. You’ll also learn who sees the scores and notes that these users provide.
Following the wisdom of the crowd, we recommend 2-3 interviewers per round. That way, interviewers can provide independent views of the skills that matter for the job.
Each interviewer gets a personal scoring link per interview round and candidate. Through this link, interviewers can score a candidate on a set of questions and add notes to support their scoring decision.
Below is a demonstration of what interviewers can do.
Feedback editors have a key role when it comes to boosting candidate experience. They can write candidate-facing feedback using interviewers’ notes and scores.
Feedback editors can be part of the interviewing team or not, and they have access to a separate personal link to write candidate-facing feedback.
On this link, the feedback editor can see the scores and notes given by all interviewers and then summarise the main pieces of feedback they want to share with the candidate.
Below is a peek at what feedback editors do.
Who sees the scores, notes and feedback written by a hiring team?
Interview scores and notes:
Team members who log in to Applied and have full access to the specific role can see everyone’s scores and notes. Feedback editors assigned to the specific interview round for a candidate can also see the scores and notes.
Through their personalised feedback link, candidates can only see their relative performance (compared to other candidates) on each skill they were assessed on.
Through their personalised feedback link, candidates can see a section that contains the notes added by the feedback editor.
Team members who log in to Applied and have full access to the specific role also have access to the candidates' personalised feedback, and are able to see the feedback notes shared with them.
