Edition Required: Available for all paid plans of both the Staffing and HR edition of Zoho Recruit.

Conducting a Live Interview

    1. Click the Start Live Interview button in the invitation email that you received to be redirected to the Interview Details page. Click Next to continue.

    2. Carefully go through the instructions that are provided before beginning the interview. Click Start Live Interview to proceed to the interview.

    3. If you're participating in a live interview for the first time, allow the website to access your Camera & Microphone. This is a one time process for the browser you are currently using. 

    4. Click Start Interview to begin the session. You'll be asked to wait until both parties have joined the session before you can start the interview. 

    5. On the left-side of your screen, you can view the status of both the candidate and the interviewer. You can also use the Live Interview Link to share        with one another. You can Mute or Pause your video by clicking on the respective buttons on your interview window.

    6. Once both the interviewer and the candidate have joined the session, you can proceed with your interview.
    7. Once you're done with the interview, you can end the interview session.
    8. Interviewers must submit their evaluation at the end.


Note: If you see a black screen after starting the interview, you and your candidate need to refresh your pages and start over again. We recommend that you start the interview before the candidate joins to avoid this issue.
