Use the BrightHire integration

After BrightHire confirms your integration is enabled, you're ready to use Greenhouse Recruiting with the magic of BrightHire! First, download the BrightHire Chrome Extension.

Any interview scheduled through Greenhouse Recruiting with a phone number or with a Zoom in the event or invitation is accessible with BrightHire. Just click on the event in your Google Calendar and use either the Call with BrightHire or the Join with BrightHire button, depending if it is a phone call or a Zoom. When you click this button, the call or Zoom will launch with the Interview Assistant. Your interview will be recorded and transcribed, and all of your notes will be time-stamped for later review!

On the Greenhouse Recruiting candidate page, click the Call with BrightHire button next to a candidate's phone number to launch the BrightHire interview assistant and fire off a call to the candidate.

With either of these options, BrightHire will pull the candidate's phone number, name, custom questions, and position from Greenhouse Recruiting into BrightHire.
