Interviewing using technology is a necessity – be it old-school telephone or the newest video conferencing technology. Employers start the hiring process using technology before bringing in candidates to meet face-to-face. Most employers use the phone to screen first-round candidates. And an increasing number are using video conferencing technology for first-round screens AND second-round face-to-face interviews. Develop insight into the interviewer’s evaluation process so that you may put your best foot forward in a phone or video environment. Visit GradLeader for more details and to register.
