Create Interview Event - Sessions

The Sessions section enables administrators to add and manage sessions for the event. From this section, administrators can also add session parts when adding a session. At least one session must be added in order for the interview event to be available to select when inviting applicants to the event from the Applicant Profile page or the Manage Applicants page.

To access the Event Details page, go to Recruit > Interview Events & Sessions. Then, click the Create New Event link on the Interview Events & Sessions page.

Filter Options

Use the following filter options to filter the results in the Sessions table:

  • Interviewer - This option filters the results based on whether or not an interviewer has been defined for the session part. The following options are available for this filter:
    • All Interviewer(s) - This option is selected by default. This option displays all session parts, regardless of whether or not an interviewer is scheduled for the part.
    • [Interviewer Name] - If at least one user has been added as an interviewer to a session part, the user's name displays in the drop-down. Select an interviewer to search for parts for which the user is defined as an interviewer.
    • Undefined - Select this option to search for parts for which an interviewer is not yet defined.
  • Scheduling Status - The following scheduling status options are available:
    • All Scheduling Statuses - This option is selected by default. This option displays sessions with any scheduling status.
