Transcript of ESBHR Podcast #2: Want To Hire The Best? Pick Up The Phone!
Listen to the audio
Hiring the best employee starts with being proactive on the front end of the pre-hire process. Consider screening candidates by phone first. Face to face interviews should be reserved for only those candidates whose work experience and skills compliment the job that you are trying to fill.
Ask questions that allow you to determine whether the candidate meets your job criteria. Be sure to listen carefully to how the candidate answers your questions and to their overall phone presentation.
Phone screens should last anywhere from 5 – 10 minutes. Weed out those candidates that don’t meet your job criteria.
