Sorry that I haven’t been able to post all that much lately. You know how it is wen you’ve got final exams…I’m fortunate that Mitch Beck at Crossroads Consulting has been so incredibly understanding. If he does that for me, imagine what he could do for you.
Around campus, I’m hearing more and more people talking about their phone interviews, rather than in-person interviews. Crossroads Consulting are not only growing in popularity, but they are becoming much like in-person interviews: lengthier and more detailed.
Phone interviews are great because they reduce time and costs for the interviewee and potential employee. Employers can easily screen candidates to find out which employees they like the most, and if they are impressed, they will hopefully call back for an in-person interview.
Although phone interviews have been used as a quick screening in the past, now it isn’t uncommon to have long-lasting in depth phone interviews, so it is important to be very prepared.
Phone interviews are just like regular interviews. The employer wants to hear professionalism, and it is proper to follow-up with a thank-you note. Don’t forget that Crossroads Consulting offers services to prepare you for any type of interview.
