Leverage the powerful insights of the assessment with the efficiency and ease of OutMatch Video pre-recorded video interviews to fast-track your high potential candidates, efficiently screen initial interviews, and share a complete picture of your candidates with a click.
Link a Video Interview to an OutMatch Job
OutMatch Video customers can add a pre-recorded video interview when creating a new Job, or add one to any existing Job in your account. Click here for a tutorial on creating pre-recorded video interviews on OutMatch Video.
Navigate to the Jobs tab in your OutMatch Talent Dashboard. If the Job is already active in your account, click Edit next to your Job's name. If you are creating a new Job, click ADD JOB to select a profile and configure your new job.
Next, click the Add Video Interview button.
A pop-up window listing all available pre-recorded video interviews will appear. Click Select Interview for the chosen interview.
Finally, select whether all applicants should automatically be presented with the video interview upon completion of the assessment. Don't worry, there will be a transition page between the assessment and video to give the candidate a chance to check for any broccoli in their teeth before they start the video interview! If the candidate is unable to complete the video interview right away, they can always resume when they are camera-ready with the same link used to complete the assessment.
Turn auto-progression On for a seamless candidate experience, or turn it Off if you would prefer to selectively send invitations to your top candidates after reviewing their assessment reports. You can always change these settings in the future - just be sure to Save your changes each time!
That's it! Easy, right? Your selected video interview is now available to invite candidates directly from the Assessment Report.
Send an Invitation to Take a Video Interview
Now that you have linked your pre-recorded video interview with your OutMatch Job, you are ready to start inviting candidates to complete the interview. Not to worry! There is no need to switch between dashboards - you can send invitations, monitor progress, and view video responses directly from the OutMatch Assessment Report.
First, open a completed Assessment Report and navigate to the Interview section. Select the Video Interview tab.
Here, you will see the details for the pre-recorded video interview that is linked to this job. Click the Send Invitation button to send a video interview invitation email directly to the candidate.

Monitor Video Interview Status
You can keep track of your candidate's progress every step of the way! Just open the candidate's Assessment Report, view the Interview section, and click on the Video Interview tab to view the status.
As the candidate progresses, the status will automatically update on their report.
- Invite Sent - the invitation has been sent to the recipient
- Delivered - the invitation has been successfully delivered
- Viewed - the invitation email was opened and viewed
- Link Clicked - the interview link has been clicked, but the interview was not started
- Started - the interview has been started or is currently in progress
