Walkthrough of a typical Filtered interview experience

Let's say that you invite a candidate to take an interview directly via their email address:

The candidate will receive an email similar to the example below, which gives them lots of preview information and a link to start the interview:

The first thing that a candidate needs to do is install the Filtered browser extension. The extension aids with the interview process by adding functionality to the code editor, as well as enabling certain security features. Candidates can uninstall the extension after the interview ends.

Once the browser extension has been installed, the candidate can begin their interview and follow the prompts on the screen.

The in-browser IDE can be resized to let the candidate maximize their screen real estate for reading the question prompt or doing the programming work.

Candidates have an opportunity to explain their solution on video after submitting it. This is an optional setting that you can enable when creating the interview.

Candidates can be given an opportunity to provide their availability to help with scheduling a next round interview (at this point, they have not been shortlisted). This step can be enabled when creating an interview.

Candidates must connect with a social media account to verify their identity and pass along some personal information.

When the interview is complete, the candidate will be given a congratulations page and have the opportunity to give the Filtered team feedback about the experience to help improve for future candidates.ย 

That's it! Many of these steps can be edited or customized while creating an interview, so your perfect interview may look different than the one above.
