"Ace the Phone Screen Interview"
Employers use phone interviews in order to save time and money for screening out those applicants whose skills and experience don’t match the job requirements. The phone screen interview is expressly designed to reduce the number of applicants who will ultimately be invited in for a face-to-face interview. Your goal in this interview is to communicate that you are the best candidate for the job. How do you do that? Good question. In this presentation, I will cover:
1.) What the interviewer will “grade” you on
2.) The key elements of phone communication
3.) How to quickly differentiate yourself from your competitors
4.) What to say if you can’t respond immediately to a question
Phone screen interviews are, in essence, quite similar to in-person interviews. Preparation and practice are keys to your success. Come join us at our WIND EAST meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2019 and find out what you need to do in order to ace the phone screen interview.
