What is an interview request?

When companies think you would be a good match for one of their open roles, they reach out to you with an interview request. An interview request is an expression of interest in your profile and an invitation to engage in conversation, it is in no way an upfront commitment to the company. You’ll be able to find all your interview requests in your Interviews page. You’ll also be notified via email when a company sends you an interview request.

In an interview request, you are able to see the company profile, role name, remote policy, location, and an upfront monthly salary.

When you receive an interview request, check out the details and click through to the company’s profile. These will give you a good understanding of how aligned this opportunity is with what you are looking for.

Your talent advisor can be a valuable resource in helping you sort through different opportunities and identify whether a company is a good fit for what you are looking for.

If the company isn’t a good match, you can choose to decline the interview request. Declining an interview request is not perceived negatively by companies and won’t close future doors with that company if you wish to engage with them in the future. So, don’t be scared to decline an interview request.

If you are interested in chatting to the company, you can accept the interview request and move forward with the company’s hiring process. We recommend you respond to an interview request within 48 hours of receiving it.

Note that interview requests expire 14 days after they are sent if you take no action. Check out our guide for best practices when it comes to accepting or declining requests.
