About this template...

The template enables you to assess whether a candidate is the right fit for the role and for the company. This template is completely customizable. While job interviews can be somewhat standardized, every role and company has their own specificity, so feel free to make it your own!

Why use meeting notes templates?

Make meetings result-oriented
Meeting notes and summaries unarguably make meetings more productive. They encourage attendees to focus on what should matter: action items and decisions. Research has showed that participants of a meeting are a lot less likely to leave a meeting frustrated about wasting their time when someone was asked to capture the minutes.

Save time preparing meetings
In truth, meetings are more similar than they are different. So chances are that you'll repeatedly go through very similar meetings. Instead of coming up with an agenda and a structure every single time you're in a meeting, you can save time by using a prebuilt template. With Scriby, you can even create your own meeting templates.

Break down communication silos
Meeting note templates help structure the meeting, increase accountability and decrease miscommunication. Meeting minutes templates also help clarify what the objectives of the meeting are. For Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, it is very important before the meeting to make explicit if "we are in the room to make a decision or to have a discussion?" Different templates for different expected results: that's exactly what you can build with Scriby.
