How can we help you?

Workvisa.io

Workvisa.io allows your recruiters to request pre-hire immigration assessments directly from Greenhouse for faster onboarding and a better candidate experience. To set up the integration, you’ll need user permissions in Greenhouse to create custom fields, configure web books, and retrieve API keys.

Step 1: Enable the Workvisa.io Stage

To start, contact your Workvisa.io representative to receive your API key. Once you have received your API key, fill out the form at www.greenhouse.io/asksupport or click here to open a ticket. 

Note: Do not send the API key in this initial email.

The Greenhouse Support Team will respond with a SendSafely link for you to enter your API key. A notification will be sent to the Greenhouse Support Team after you have entered your API key and they will email you to confirm that your API key has been set up in your account and your integration is enabled.

Note: To verify your identity, the Greenhouse Support Team might request you provide a Support Verification Code before adding the API key to your organization's account.

You can then add the stage “Pre-Hire Immigration Assessment” to your interview plan. 

Step 2: Configure Custom Candidate Field

From your Greenhouse Dashboard, click the gear icon in the  top-right corner and navigate to Custom Options > Company Custom Fields > Candidates. Click the “Add Field” button to create a custom candidate field.

Enter in the following information below for the Field Name and Type. Use the words exactly as shown below, including capitalization and spaces!

 

Field Name: Requires Immigration Sponsorship

Type: Yes/No

 

 

 

Click “Save.” Your newly created field will now be part of the company’s library of candidate fields and be shown under the Details tab of a candidate’s profile.

 

Step 3: Configure Web Hooks

 

From your Greenhouse Dashboard, click the gear icon in the  top-right corner and navigate to Custom Options > Dev Center > Web Hooks > Web Hooks. You will create two Web Hooks. Click “Create Web Hook” at the bottom of the form after creating the first one to save your changes.

Step 4: Retrieve and Send Harvest API Key

From your Greenhouse Dashboard, click the gear icon in the  top-right corner and navigate to Custom Options > Dev Center > API Credential Management. Click “Create New API Key” and enter Workvisa.io in the description, then click “Create.” On the next screen, select the below permissions from the list. These permissions grant Workvisa.io access to fetch the required candidate and job information for the assessment.

Now that you’ve set up the integration, you can now move forward with requesting an assessment for any candidates who indicate they need immigration sponsorship.

 

Step 1: Confirm the Candidate Requires Immigration Sponsorship

 

When the candidate indicates that they now or will in the future require immigration sponsorship, make sure to indicate this under “Details” in their candidate profile by selecting “Yes” to the custom field indicated below.

 

 

Important Note: If you select “No” or leave the custom field indicated above blank, you will receive an error message and email notification indicating that you will not be able to send the Pre-Hire Immigration Questionnaire to the candidate.

 

 

Step 2: Initiate the Immigration Assessment Request

 

When you are ready to request an immigration assessment, move the candidate to the Pre-Hire Immigration Assessment stage. Once the candidate is moved to the Pre-Hire Immigration Assessment stage, click “Send Test” to send our questionnaire to the candidate.

 

 

The questionnaire will be emailed to the candidate, copying a primary contact and the assigned recruiter in Greenhouse.

Step 3: Receive the Immigration Assessment

The assessment will be issued based on the completed questionnaire, the candidate’s resume/CV, and the details of the offered position harvested from Greenhouse. The recruiter will then receive an email with the assessment.
