Tips for Conducting an Effective Phone Interview

Phone interviews are invaluable during the hiring process. They can serve as an early stage in the screening process, touch points deeper into the process, and an easy way to connect with candidates. Once candidates are identified on paper as someone who could be interesting, the phone interview is a great first step to moving forward. This can be an easy way to connect with the talent pool with some preliminary questions to understand the basics of their background before going through the process of setting up an in-person interview. This can especially be helpful in the case that the hiring team is in another location than where the candidate is. However, phone interviews can be a challenge due to not seeing the person on the other end of the phone face to face if not conducted effectively.
