I use Talegent. What does the integration look like? How do I enable it?

Greenhouse and Talegent have created an integration so that you can seamlessly use the two products together to add an assessment to your interview pipeline.

To implement the integration, you will:

  1. Contact Talegent to request your API key (clientsupport@talegent.com)
  2. Email support@greenhouse.ioor click here to open a ticket. Please do not send the API key in this initial email.
  3. The Greenhouse Support Team will respond with a SendSafely link for you to enter your API key into (How does SendSafely work?), which will notify Greenhouse Support once the API key has been entered.
  4. Greenhouse Support will then email you back confirming that your API key has been setup in your account and your integration is ready to go.
  5. Add a special Talegent Assessment stage to your interview pipeline.
  6. Contact Talegent to configure your email template to send candidates (clientsupport@talegent.com)
  7. As candidates enter that stage, send the Talegent assessment through Greenhouse.
  8. Once candidates submit their test, a link to the results will be accessible through the Interview Kit in Greenhouse.

Enabling the Integration

Greenhouse integration on Talegent is enabled for all teams by default. Just forward the API key to your Greenhouse Account Manager. Your Account Manager will enter the API Key into the system and then let you know when the integration is ready to go.

Adding the Talegent Assessment Stage

To add the stage to your Interview Plan:

  • Navigate to a specific job, and click the Job Setup tab
  • Click Interview Plan
  • Scroll down the page, and click the green + Add Stage button
  • Select Talegent, and click the Add button 

  

Configuring the Stage

Once the stage has been added, click Edit Take Home Test. From there, you will see a drop-down menu that reflects the assessment that you’ve previously set up in Talegent. Select the appropriate assessment, assign at least one Greenhouse user to grade/review submitted assessment, and then click Save.

Keep in mind that all configuration of the assessment itself, as well as the email template, will need to be handled in Talegent. While you will click "Send Test" from within Greenhouse, the assessment instructions are actually sent by Talegent.

Sending the Test

When candidates are moved into the Talegent Assessment stage, Greenhouse will display a Send Test link. While you click "Send Test" in Greenhouse, the assessment instructions will actually be sent through Talegent (see step 6 above).

The status of the assessment will be viewable in Greenhouse:

  • Take Home Test to be sent.
  • Waiting for candidate to submit test
  • Scorecard due from <DESIGNATED_GRADER>

 

Reviewing Test Results

Once the candidate has submitted their test, the Interview Kit will contain a link to view the submitted test on Talegent.
