Talent Llama’s integration with Lever allows hiring teams to automatically import and invite candidates to interview from any stage in the Lever candidate pipeline. As interviews are completed, recruiters can move top candidates to the next Lever stage, or reject them directly from the Talent Llama evaluation screen. The evaluation is then added to the Lever opportunity to review within Lever. For more information refer to the Talent Llama website
