Focus on your candidates and make every hire exceptional with BrightHire Interview Assistant, available from the Zoom App Marketplace

People are the core of any organization, and that makes the hiring process essential to get right. But conducting a good interview is hard: they’re stressful, manual, and time-consuming. Many organizations and interviewers may not feel confident in their capabilities because of minimal training and the pressure of making a good choice. This can lead to interviewers juggling interviews on top of their day-to-day work, with hiring decisions at times made on gut feelings and rough notes. None of this sets an organization up for success.

“Zoom is critical for hiring, with millions of interviews and hires happening throughout the year.” — Benjamin Sesser, CEO and Co-Founder of BrightHire.

This is why BrightHire founders chose to develop an app for the interviewers so they can focus on the candidate — the BrightHire Interview Assistant app with Zoom Meetings.

Make hiring easier for recruiting and hiring teams with a seamless workflow

Streamlining the process of how work gets done for the hiring team is critical, which is why BrightHire focused on aligning with a hiring team’s existing workflow.

BrightHire Interview Assistant app integrates with an organization’s Applicant Tracking System (ATS) – like Workday, iCIMS, and Greenhouse – which is often referred to as the “source of truth” for human resource teams. It also works directly within Zoom Meetings, where recruiters, hiring managers, and other team members conduct interviews with candidates

“We already love Zoom and use it for everything, and then when it comes to BrightHire, the key benefit for us is that it integrates with our applicant tracking system. The ATS is connected to a broader HR tech stack including other HRIS like Workday, our employee voice tool, and even survey tools like Culture Amp. The ability to easily pass data from our ATS into BrightHire about interview questions and then conduct interviews within Zoom Meetings to get a holistic view of notes, scores, and insights, is invaluable.” — Amy Schultz, Global Talent Acquisition Leader at Canva

Find better ways for interviewers to conduct exceptional interviews

Interviewers want to focus on the candidate. But they also have to write good notes, think of follow-up questions, and wonder what the rest of the hiring team may think about a particular candidate. BrightHire aims to remove those distractions so the hiring team can keep what’s important in front of them.

BrightHire uses AI to improve the hiring interview process for everyone involved. When conducting an interview, interviewers can access relevant interview questions right at their fingertips and provide structured notes and written feedback in real-time within Zoom, where the interview is taking place.

Refalo also discussed how candidates often feel that the number of interviews is simply “too many,” and with candidate highlights, hiring teams can minimize the number of interviews by reviewing and sharing clips among the team.

“Canva and Zoom already have a really strong partnership, but it's also great to know that Zoom and BrightHire do as well. Zoom is incredibly integral in how we interview candidates, so being able to offer a more seamless experience to our candidates is super beneficial. A rising tide lifts all boats!” - Amy Schultz, Global Talent Acquisition Leader at Canva

Looking ahead at future capabilities, the BrightHire team has planned Zoom Team Chat and Zoom Phone connectivity, further increasing the ways hiring teams can use the Zoom platform to further improve the hiring experience.
