The interview kit contains everything an interviewer needs to conduct a focused, purposeful interview and provide useful feedback afterwards. This includes interview instructions, interview questions, the candidate's resume, and a scorecard. Click here to learn more about configuring interview kits.

As an interviewer, you can access your assigned interview kit two ways: 

  • By clicking the interview kit URL in the calendar event for the interview
  • From the My Interviews panel on the My Dashboard page
