Interview Process and Information


This year, PM&R utilized the program Thalamus for all interview scheduling. This progam serves as an important tool for candidates selected for interviews as it is a secure and reliable connection to our availability and communications.

Helpful Instructions Regarding Thalamus:
Once selected for interview, candidates are sent an email inviting them to schedule their interview date(s) through Thalamus. Once a candidate clicks the link, they will follow all proper steps for scheduling.

  • Create Your Profile: confirm your information and set up your profile
  • Schedule Your Interview: availability, preferred dates, easy changes, and the Smart Calendar will allow for flexible scheduling. 
  • Additional Features: be sure to explore the additonal features that can help facilitate travel plans, weather, contact information, and more. 
  • Application: Thalamus offers an app for Apple and Android devices 
  • Be sure to schedule within 48 hours of receiving your invitation, otherwise we cannot guarantee a spot will be available after that point.
