Once you’ve clicked Send message the candidate will be notified via email and should respond within 48 hours.

They’ll receive all the information you've included in the message, as well as a link to your company profile on OfferZen. They can then either accept or decline your interview request.

My request was accepted

Congratulations! If a candidate accepts your request, you’ll be able to chat with them directly by making use of the messaging function, as well as schedule interviews, leave interview feedback, and move them through your pipeline.

Bear in mind that you don’t have to wait for our team at OfferZen to do anything. You’re speaking to the candidate directly right from the start – and they’re excited to hear back from you.

My request was declined

If the candidate declines your interview request, be sure to check out the reason they provided. Unfortunately, this is usually the end of the conversation with that particular candidate.
