How to Ace a Phone, Skype, or Online Interview
Currently, the most usual methods of conducting screening interviews are by phone and by video and/or online. Why? Because they are less expensive, simple, and efficient ways for a recruiter or hiring company to screen you “in” or “out.” And, they are just as important as a job interview, because they can determine whether or not you get to the next step in the interview process. If you’re looking for a job, you should (1) anticipate one of these types of interviews and (2) prepare for them. One avoidable error is to come across as unprepared or worse – uninterested. In this session, you’ll discover ways to make a positive impression to be invited in for a face-to-face interview.
Facilitated by Robyn Winters, TBJL Career Strategist
WHAT IS LINKS: LINKS is an acronym for Leads, Information, Networking, Know-how, and Strategies. It is an educational and motivational program designed to help candidates prepare for the week ahead and to share conversation, contacts, and job-search information in a relaxed, friendly environment. For the unemployed professional, LINKS is a “place to go” to focus on the job search when others go to work on Monday Mornings. LINKS sessions are free and open to the public. Reservations are required.
