Male voice: As an applicant scheduled for a medical or dental interview you will have been sent instructions on how and when to register on the system by the lead recruiter for the specialty you have applied for.

To register, navigate to the homepage click on Inital Login/Forgot Password. You should use the email address that you registered with Oriel and click submit.

You will then receive an automated email with a link to activate your account and set a new password. Once you click Submit, return to the Recruit login page 

And input your username or email address and the password you set to log in. If you have not previously participated in an interview on Recruit or have changed devices or location, you will be required to run a virtual compatibility check. If you encounter any issues, please contact your lead recruiter. 

You will see a list of the interviews that you have been assigned to. On the day and allotted time for your interview, click Choose and you will be taken to your waiting area. Recruit will ask you to allow access to your device camera and microphone so that you can particpate fully in virtual interviews. You can adjust your audio, microphone and video settings ahead of the virtual interview.

On the interview day you will be able to see the current state in green in the timeline bar at the top of your page. And you will receive prompts accompanied by audible notifications to guide you through your interview. You can close each prompt by clicking on the box.

The interview will move from Camera/Mic check to Panel Pre-meet/ID Check.

When the start time for your first station is approaching you will remain in your waiting area and an administrator will connect to you to perform an ID check. From Panel Pre-meet/ID check, the circuit moves to Reading Time/Pre-interview.  This is a timed state and for some interviews. You may be asked to read a scenario or look at an image prior to going into the station. 

You should close the instructions when you have finished reading and you can re-open them whenever you need to refer back for the duration of each station.From Reading Time/pre interview, the panel or circuit moves to Interview where applicants will automatically be admitted to each station and you will meet with your panellists. You will see the station time count down on the top bar.

You can focus on a specific video tile by clicking on the pin icon to move others and yourself to the bar underneath the main video area. The panellist may share media with you and it will pop up until they stop sharing. If you would like more space on the screen you can collapse the right of the screen by clicking the arrow. Click it again at any time to make it reappear.

If you finish a station early and you and the panel are satisfied you have answered all of the questions, click “Leave Station”. You will be prompted if you are sure you want to perform this action as it cannot be undone. By clicking “yes” you will be removed from the virtual interview room and returned to the waiting area until the next rotation begins. From Interview, the panel or circuit moves to End of interview station and you will have completed your station and will be returned to your waiting area before you move on to the next station.

Should you experience any issues you can click on the Help bubble to report directly to the interview Administrator who will then see your message and connect to you. You will move through a circuit and when you have completed all stations you will receive a notification to say your interview has finished and you will see the Finished state at the top in green. 

At this point, you can logout of Recruit as your interview has finished.
