Setting up a new set of video interview questions, or what we refer to as a Job, is easy.

There are 4 steps to take (not all are mandatory) with question templates to help you along the way. To begin, from either the Overview page or the Jobs page, select the green 'Create New Job' button.

  1. Add in a title for your Job.
    - Here you can add in a title for your job, job category and a welcome message.

    - Additional Fields- Here you can add Skills, Experience and Additional Candidate Information where you can request additional fields such as Phone Number, LinkedIn, Location, Social Account, Website, Cover Letter (you can select up to 3).

2. Next, we'll set up the questions for your Job.
Use Templates: If you would like to use one of our templates, or if you have created your own, a template can be selected from this list to pre-populate the questions.

Set up each Question: enter the question, then further details in a separate field if needed. Set the number of Thinking time, Record time and Retakes. Use the red X to the top right of a question to delete it, and the 'Add Question' button beneath the current set of questions to add more. The maximum amount of questions you can add is 10. If you wish to rearrange the questions, click and drag the 6 dot icon on the

left-hand side.

Practice Questions: Candidates can practice with random questions before the interview starts.

3. Smart Shortlisting

The 3rd step is relative to the myInterview Plan you’re using. If you have the “myInterview Intelligence” feature enabled, you will get the “Smart Shortlisting” section as your 3rd step of your Job creation. If this feature isn’t enabled, then your 3rd step is the “Branding” section that’s explained in detail below.

Through our Smart Shortlisting step, you can choose from the designated Keywords that are written down as Qualities for a given candidate, which they ought to possess in order to be a good fit for the role they’re applying for. The Qualities are preset and separated into 2 categories that you can Drag & Drop to: Top Priority, and Lower Priority, and let our AI do its magic by analyzing the content for personality behavior markers or tags from what the candidates have said and inform you whether they are an appropriate fit for the job!

4. Brand your interview.

  • "Welcome" video
    An intro video is a good way to give the candidate more information on your company and allow for a more personalized experience. Intro videos that aim to reassure candidates can significantly increase the completion rate.
    If the video is hosted online, obtain the video Share Link from the site rather than the URL where possible.

  • "Thank You" message
    Enhance your candidate's experience by explaining the next steps in the hiring journey or just say thanks. In addition, you can record, link or upload a video.

  • Branding

    Enhance the candidate’s experience by adding your logo, custom colours, images or background (Any changes made will be applied to all jobs)

5. Invite some candidates.
Invite one or more candidates to complete the video interview by emailing them from myInterview, optionally also sending them an SMS. You can add them in individually from the Email section, or bulk upload a list of candidates from the Upload CSV section.

Alternatively, copy the link from the Direct Link section to include it in your own custom email set up in your ATS or sent from your own inbox.

That's all there is to it! If you'd like to go back and make some changes to your Jobs, they are editable too.
