An automated One-way Interview is an interviewing method for the recruiter to assess the candidate without actually spending real-time interviewing them.
Real-time interviews require either the interviewer or candidate to travel and spend a significant amount of time. On the other hand, automated interviewing mode lets the recruiter send a set of questions to the candidate and allows the candidate to answer and send them back at their own comfort.
Here is a template for an automated one-way interview mail for you to send out to your candidates to save time and effort in the initial interview stage.
