TL;DR: To most efficiently setup your interview training program there are some best practices we recommend you follow in regard to your interview templates. This article provides an overview on how Interview Templates work within Interviewer Training.
Prior to creating interview training paths we recommend the following:
- Review where you would like to grow your interviewer pool and check that you have scheduling templates associated with those roles/departments. In the example below: we want to increase the quantity of interviewers who can conduct our 'Java Skills Test' interview, and we DO already have 'Senior Java Engineer - Virtual Onsite' interview scheduling template already created.
- Within the interview template(s) identified above ensure that your event titles clearly indicate the type of interview events required in that interview (NOTE: Interview Event Titles within your interview templates are internal facing only so feel free to name these events in a way that provide clear context to your interviewers of each event type). In the example below: we can clearly see that this event is a 'Java Skills Test' from the event title.
- Identify if there is a tagged group already associated to that interview template and event. In the example below: we have the ideal setup as we can clearly see that the 'Java Skills Test' interview event requires an interviewer who is tagged with a 'Java' tag to conduct this event (i.e. someone qualified to conduct a 'Java Skills Test' needs to host this interview event).
- Once you have reviewed/built/updated your interview templates to clearly reflect both the interview event types (by providing clear an unambiguous event titles) and the interviewer required to host each event (by using interviewer tags), we are ready to start building some training paths to increase your trained and tagged interviewer pool.
