Inviting candidates to your interview

Willo is the perfect tool for hiring talented people anywhere in the world. Increase the quantity & quality of your talent pool by discovering and connecting with top talent remotely today.

Getting started

All you need to do is copy your invitation link and send it to the candidates via your preferred method of communication - we suggest email or LinkedIn messenger as the best method to use. You can also use Indeed.com and SEEK job boards.

Tips for creating your own template

When you invite candidates to interview it's a good idea to give them some context either over the phone beforehand or in the email. This will improve the chance of them completing a video for you.

Try to explain the main benefits to them of completing a Willo interview:

  • Time saved (on average it takes candidates 20 minutes to complete an interview)
  • They can complete it anywhere (Flexible around their schedule)
  • Ability to be seen and heard
  • Assessed on the same questions as every other candidate (Level the playing field) 

Customising your templates

Create your own SMS and email templates within Willo, and give your candidate experience a real boost.
