In today’s competitive job environment, phone interviewing skills are often the deciding factor in getting a live interview.
Trumbull, CT (PRWEB) February 13, 2012
The stakes are high. Today, more than ever, job candidates make initial contact with prospective employers via the telephone. Those who don’t pass the phone interview don’t get inside the door for a face-to-face interview with a hiring decision-maker, where traditional interview and sales skills can prevail. Paul Bailo, MBA, MSW, Ph.D. (candidate), and Founder and CEO of Phone Interview Pro, will address this commonly overlooked step in the interview process as the featured speaker at St. John’s University career seminar at 1:00 pm on February 23 at the D’Angelo Center 416A.
“In today’s competitive job environment, phone interviewing skills are often the deciding factor in getting a live interview,” said Bailo. “Although resume, interview preparation, and target company research assistance are commonly emphasized by career counseling organizations on campus, the importance of the telephone interview is often overlooked.”
“St. John’s is committed to giving our students a quality education while providing the tools needed to succeed in the job market upon graduation,” said Mark A. Andrews, Associate Director, Office of Alumni Relations. “We believe Phone Interview Pro is a great resource for students who will be interviewing for jobs in this competitive job marketplace.”
As the author of The Essential Phone Interview Handbook, Bailo will discuss scientifically proven ways to prepare candidates for the phone interview and how to master these overlooked job.
