Use the Choice Screening integration with Greenhouse Recruiting

Once your Greenhouse implementation is integrated with Choice Screening, when you initiate a background screen on a candidate, Greenhouse Recruiting will automatically send to Choice Screening the candidate’s name and email address information as well as what background screening package was selected to be run.

Choice Screening will then send a background screening consent email to the candidate, and pre-populate the information provided for the candidate. Once the candidate has consented to the background screen, the package selected will automatically be run.

Once the package that was ordered is complete, that activity is noted in the candidate activity feed, and you can see the full details of that report in the Choice Screening portal.
