Create a good first impression over the phone
Rule no. 1: Find a quiet place to talk to recruiter, fully charge your mobile before the interview, and turn call waiting off. The person on the other line will be able to hear you clearly, and you will be able to hear them. It sounds simple, but wind can be a factor if you take the call outside!

Every candidate who's ever worked with an Agency or Corporate Recruiter will tell you that Recruiters are very busy people. There's no doubt about it.

Recruiters have lots of metrics that they are measured on, but the most worthless of them all is the Phone Time Report. This is the report that shows how much time a recruiter spends on the phone each day/week/month.

Some months ago, I was phone screened for a Senior Recruiter role with a Fortune 500 retail company. During the phone screening, which lasted 75 minutes, I talked for roughly 10-12 minutes. Instead of digging deeper into the responsibilities of the role I applied for, the Recruiter spent most of…Continue
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…Continue
