Announcing Greenhouse's Integration with Interviewed


Chris Bakke 

Chris Bakke is the Co-Founder of Interviewed - the best platform for candidates to prove their skills to employers using online job simulations. Learn more about this new partnership below. 

Last year, my co-founders and I were working together at a rapidly-growing startup. As hiring managers, we were struggling to fill dozens of sales, administrative, and customer support roles. We applied all the traditional hiring practices but the results were random - some candidates worked out, but many didn't. We went back to the drawing board and researched how the best organizations in the world hire. The answer was clear: job simulations. Job simulations allow your candidates to perform tasks that they would actually do on the job in less than 15 minutes. We began dreaming about ways to use technology to build job simulations for any type of role and Interviewed was born.

Let’s say you’re hiring for customer support. The Interviewed + Greenhouse partnership allows you to send a job-specific simulation link to a candidate in one-click, right from Greenhouse: 


This invite link goes to the candidate, where they can resolve difficult customer issues over email -


...Update client information in a ticketing system 


...And even make live calls to customers


Once the simulation is complete, Interviewed helps you assess the candidate’s performance on a variety of customizable dimensions - ranging from speed to accuracy to grammar. 


A few things to keep in mind:

Job simulations are the best predictor of job performance.

Laszlo Bock, SVP of People @ Google discusses this in his bestselling book, Work Rules! Job simulations and work samples are the most predictive method of hiring. They’re better than structured behavioral interviews, resume analysis, general cognitive ability tests, reference checks, or years of work experience. So, why don’t more companies use simulations? Well, it’s really hard to develop content, build an internal platform to administer the simulations, create scoring rules, measure multiple dimensions, etc. It’s a lot of work, but our team at Interviewed is tackling this issue so that you can focus on everything else in the hiring process.  

You can use job simulations at any step in the funnel.

Simulations can be used almost anywhere in your hiring process. Some of our clients send an Interviewed simulation to 100% of their candidates as the first step in the application process, and others use us after a first or second in-person interview. We believe that simulations should be a natural step in the funnel, and it’s always important to balance technology with human touch.

Customize the content of a simulation to make it specific to the role.

You should choose simulations that are as close to the real role as possible. First, a simulation provides a realistic job preview that shows the candidate what she’ll be doing on a day-to-day basis at your company. Second, research shows that a structured interview process with work samples is favored by candidates. Interviewed offers dozens of job-specific simulations and we’re constantly building more. We can also work one-on-one with your company to create custom simulations for your candidates.
