This step involves scheduling calls with shortlisted applicants.

In the 'Applications' sheet, review the applications whose statuses are the following:

  •  2 Shortlisted: To schedule call
  •  2 Scheduling: Awaiting response
  •  2 Reminder sent: Awaiting response

 Who to include in calls

  • For general opportunities, involve at least one team member familiar with  with the volunteer and internship opportunities available at the organisation, and ideally one recruitment team member.

  • For traineeship and internship opportunities with a predefined scope, involve at least one team member who will be working closely with the trainee/intern, and ideally one recruitment team member.

 Timeslots to offer

For instuctions on how to set up your booking page, refer to Step 1 of this OnceHub guide.


Otherwise, choose at least two different types of timeslots to offer the shortlisted applicants (e.g. one weekday afternoon plus one weekend night) so that there is a greater likelihood that the proposed timeslots will fit the applicant's schedule. Provide timeslots at least one week in advance to account for people taking time to check their emails, and increase the likelihood that applicants would not have made plans yet.
