The Yobs integration with Greenhouse will save you from hours spent cleaning up candidate notes and going back to them to fill out Scorecards in Greenhouse.  With this integration, you can effortlessly schedule and launch Yobs interviews from Greenhouse. During the interview, Yobs lets you take notes during candidate calls that sync directly with Greenhouse Scorecards. Then, as the conversation unfolds, it’ll automatically record and transcribe what is said to make sure no important interview moment is lost and help you recall and share those important moments at any time.

Hiring managers can also finally use real evidence to give real-time coaching to interviewers and ensure they ask the right questions, engage candidates effectively, check each other’s interview biases and more. ‍
