"What happens if a recruiter realizes in the first few minutes that the candidate is a dud? They'll be wasting the time they took to prepare for the interview and the interview itself. Additionally, the candidate has to find time to talk. They…"

"Greg, Very nice post on the basics. As others have said, it's amazing what some candidates will or will not do on something as basic as a phone screen. We usually use a candidate's performance on a PS to make various, very accurate,…"

"Great points. I'd add "Sound enthusiastic". Too many times I have disqualified a candidate because they sounded like they didn't want the job and that my phone call was annoying them. Lovely."

Phone Screens: Five Tips to Favorably Impress

When beginning the candidate selection process for new positions, many employers conduct a phone screen prior to a face-to-face interview.  Such conversations serve as a way for HR to confirm a candidates’ experience and qualifications, and to eliminate anyone who seems to be an overtly poor fit for the position.  To ensure that you will advance to the next stage of the hiring process, you need to be equipped with not only excellent in-person interviewing…See More

"Hmmm. As a corporate recruiter there is no 2nd step following the phone screen if we don't have the salary conversation. I bring it up towards the end of the call, after I make sure there is a good possibility of a match - but salary discussion…"

Peter Ceccarelli commented on Gregory Saukulak's blog post 'Select with Certainty: A Guide to Candidate Phone Screens'
"I disagree with you.  The salary converstion has to happen in the initial phone screen, typically at at 15 minutes into it.  Money makes the world go around and it's wise to not waste your time and the candidates if you're not in…"

Ben McGrath commented on Gregory Saukulak's blog post 'Select with Certainty: A Guide to Candidate Phone Screens'
"Peter, I would argue the discussion regarding salary and benefits comes later in the process. What we are looking for initially, is if the candidate believes in the job opportunity and that the company culture will be a good fit for them. Many…"
