How to Automate Your Interview Scheduling
You're on a lucky streak this week! You found a handful of top tier candidates who are all qualified and ready to move onto the next steps of the hiring process—and you're excited to speak with them! But what about all the other applicants who have yet to schedule a short phone screening with you? Or the other hundreds of resumes waiting to be reviewed?
How Automated Scheduling Can Help
What is Automated Scheduling?
Recruiting with Automated Scheduling
As a recruiter, it can be overwhelming to juggle so many tasks all at once, and the process of manually scheduling interviews with hundreds or thousands of candidates is especially a drain on time, effort, and resources. The back-and-forth between recruiter and candidate to schedule an interview is time that can be better spent on other touch points in the recruiting process.
With the right technology, recruiters can balance their workload while maintaining engaging and meaningful relationships with their candidates at every step of the recruiting process.
What is Automated Scheduling?
Interview scheduling software uses artificial intelligence to set-up a system that allows for candidates to easily schedule an interview based on the recruiters' availability. The system will collect the recruiter's available date and time slots, and compile them into a list for candidates to pick from.
Complex scheduling workflows are also available, which include sequential, panel, and round robin interviews, and can include additional team members like hiring managers. That's all possible too, but more on that later in this blog post.
Automating your interview scheduling mitigates long wait times and ensures that candidates can move onto the next step of the hiring process as soon as possible.

How does XOR Interview Scheduling work?
1. Integrate your work calendar
Connect your work calendar by entering your log in details. Your company's system admin can also login to unlock complex scheduling workflows that include hiring managers, recruiters, and other team members.
2. Configure your meetings
Choose a meeting length, time and date range, web conferencing, and any other details you'd like to customize. Then generate a chatbot link to your scheduler.
3. Automate your scheduling
You can use your chatbot link to schedule interviews with qualified candidates who are coming inbound to apply for jobs and outbound campaigns. Scheduling can take place over text message, WhatsApp or live chat.
4. Receive calendar invites
Your chatbot will automatically send you and your candidate a calendar invite with meeting details, and the ability to reschedule or cancel.
