How does InterviewJet work?

To become an InterviewJet candidate, you will need to fill out our quick application form (it only takes a minute). Our selection committee will review the information and reach out with next steps.

Will InterviewJet keep my contact information secure?

Yes. From the day you apply to the day you get hired, you manage the details of your information and can even use our anonymous option.

EMPLOYERS

What is InterviewJet?

InterviewJet is a no-strings, members-only hiring platform that allows hiring managers and company recruiters to connect with local tech professionals via a weekly email. Talent moves fast and so does InterviewJet. The platform provides direct communication and the ability to request and schedule interviews right in the dashboard. It is your quick ticket to meeting talented tech professionals in Boston and New York (soon to be Austin and Chicago).

How does InterviewJet help hiring managers and company recruiters?

InterviewJet saves time, money and headaches while providing a real-time look at the tech talent seeking jobs in the competitive local landscape. Instead of spending big budgets on recruiting agencies, talent acquisition professionals have access to a continuously updated list of qualified candidates free of charge. Hiring managers and company recruiters can connect and schedule interviews with talent without leaving the dashboard. In 10 minutes, you could meet, connect and arrange an interview with a potential hire.

How does InterviewJet work?

To become an InterviewJet member, all you need to provide your work email. The following Tuesday, you will receive an email featuring 20 actively searching, fully-vetted candidates looking for tech jobs in your city. You will have access to these candidates for 72 hours. Within that time, you will need to request/schedule an interview according to the candidate’s availability. The candidate then has 24 hours to accept or deny your interview request. If the candidate accepts your request, InterviewJet will introduce you both. You will only be charged once a hire is made.

How much does this cost?

InterviewJet is free to join. It means that you pay nothing to receive our weekly email of talent and begin requesting interviews. If you end up hiring one of our featured candidates, we require a flat fee of $9,500.

How can I sign up to be an InterviewJet member company?

Sign up using the link above and fill out a quick one-minute application. Then we will reach out to you to learn more about you and see how we can help each other.

When can I start meeting tech talent?

Next Tuesday! After providing InterviewJet with your work email, you will begin receiving featured talent email the following Tuesday morning at 10:00 am EST.

How many featured candidates will I see each week?

We generally feature between 15 - 25 candidates each week.
