If you’re going to be chatting with a candidate, you can build a more personal relationship with them by inviting them to a video call with you. Recruitee video calls offer way more than just a way to connect with candidates who can't make it to the office. They make it simple to organize a group video call, chat with your candidate, or give them a call.

Supported browsers:


  • The quality of your call depends on your bandwidth. This can cause issues if you are moving and you enter a space where the wifi signal is not as strong or fluctuates. 
  • This feature is hosted within Europe, therefore the call connection might not be optimal when used outside of Europe.
  • If you can't hear your contact or your contact cannot hear you, make sure microphone permissions are enabled and your firewall or a third-party app is not limiting or blocking Recruitee's access to the internet.
  • If you are using a custom firewall setup, make sure that the following ports are open for video calls:
80 TCP HTTP/BOSH/Websocket
443 TCP HTTP/BOSH/Websocket
4443 TCP videostream for very restrictive environments
10000-20000 UDP/TCP videostream RTP

Your candidate can join the call directly from the calendar invite you shared. When they click the event link, they will be taken to a waiting page where they can start the interview at the right time and see who they are meeting with.
