AIS Requirements

AIS was looking for a Virtual Recruitment Platform that will let them host a virtual hiring session of 2 weeks duration. The platform should be simple and easy to use for all stakeholders, extremely scalable, without any restrictions on the duration of sessions and the number of participants. Virtual Hiring sessions should run in an automated mode with Hiring Managers and Candidates doing what they are expected to do without causing additional workload for the HR team. AIS preferred to use Microsoft Teams for the meetings as their organization is already using it.

Prescreening workflow
AIS wanted a prescreening process where candidate profiles are vetted and only the candidates approved by AIS hiring managers will be granted entry to the Virtual Hiring session. During the Virtual Hiring session, candidates will have 60 mins interviews with Hiring Managers.
