Our approach is grounded in preparation, assessment and online training that give participants the confidence needed to help secure an in-person interview, where traditional interview and sales skills can prevail.
Trumbull, CT (PRWEB) March 19, 2012
Phone Interview Pro today announced the launch of an innovative online education program for career services professionals at universities, government agencies and companies to use as a tool to test and evaluate candidates on their ability to successfully complete a crucial step in the interview process: the phone interview. Phone Interview Pro EDU was developed for career services professionals to complement Phone Interview Pro’s evaluation program, which helps individuals uncover their strengths and weaknesses when preparing for a phone interview.
“Because career services professionals strive to prepare their clients for success in their employment search, preparation for phone interviews should not be taken lightly,” said Paul Bailo, MBA, MSW, Ph.D. (candidate), and Founder and CEO of Phone Interview Pro. “Our approach is grounded in preparation, assessment and online training that give participants the confidence needed to help secure an in-person interview, where traditional interview and sales skills can prevail.”
The fact that major employers are increasingly using phone interviews to screen prospective job candidates before calling them in for an in-person interview is an on-going trend in the marketplace. Those who don’t pass the phone interview don’t get inside the door. In response to this critical change in how HR departments vet job applicants, Phone Interview Pro developed a comprehensive online education program to help candidates perfect their phone interview skills.
“Many people seeking employment first focus on getting an in-person interview; however, what these job candidates need to understand is that the phone interview is increasingly the first step in the hiring process. And, this part of the screening process can easily be overlooked,” said Linda Van Valkenburgh, owner of My Executive Career Coach, LLC. “Phone Interview EDU provides our clients with the best value for their investment with an innovative program that can improve phone interview skills and take job candidates to the next level.”
