Preparations for Creating a Job

Updated by Amy Thomas

A job defines which assessments, video interview or live interview your candidates will be completing, as well as any other additional pieces of information you’d like to collect in the process (for example application forms, resumes, certifications and cover letters).

Before creating a new job, there are a few tasks that need to be completed.

Structured interviews

If you are including a video interview, you will need to create the video interview template and add any custom messages and questions.

If you are including a live interview, you will need to create the live interview template, including any custom questions and messages.


If you are including assessments, you will need to create a test battery.

Set up any custom score ranges for the assessments you will be inviting your candidates to complete. The Workplace Alignment Assessment and Illustrait also have some preliminary setup requirements.

Create a custom test that assesses your candidates' job knowledge using TestMaker.

Application form

If you will be collecting additional information about your candidates, you will need to create the application form. You can add filters to your application form to automatically progress candidates who meet (or don't meet) your criteria.

Email templates

We recommend creating custom invitation email templates for your candidates for the assessments and for the video interview.
