Interview scorecards are lists of questions used to increase consistency in your interview process. In most cases, your CareerPlug account will come with Phone Screen, In-Person Interview, and Reference Check scorecards.


To edit an existing interview scorecard:

Click Account and then Manage Hiring Process. On the left-hand side of your screen, click the link that reads 'Interview Scorecards.' Click the 'Edit' link next to a scorecard you wish to edit. This will create a copy of the scorecard for you to edit. Make sure you give your scorecard a distinctive name. Otherwise, it will be named "[Your Name] Copy of [Scorecard Name]".

Click the Add Question button to add your first question. Select what type of question you would like to ask:
 
  • Open Text Response (allows the interviewer to type their own response to the question)
  • Select - Dropdown
  • Select - Choices (vertical layout)
  • Select - Choices (horizontal layout). 

You can choose which section a question appears in, if you created any. Type the name of the question. Enter the response options and choose how each response to the question will be weighted in the final score (if applicable). When you are selecting the score for various response options, you can choose any scale (some clients use 1-4, others use 1-10), but be sure to keep your method of scoring consistent across questions. Add additional answer choices by clicking Add response option. Click Add at the bottom once you have added all of the answer choices for the question.
