(1) Sourcing passive talent
(2) Processing inbound applicants: Using an ATS the Interviewer passes candidates onto the phone screen phase or rejects them, implementing a careful eye for detail on a candidate’s written communication, spelling, and grammar is essential, as well as a curiosity about them holistically as you review resumes, Linkedin and other links provided.
(3) Conducting phone screens: In this stage, the Interviewer puts their journalistic hat on, they at once create rapport with the candidate being screened while probing to get to the heart of their answers: judging for cultural fit, skillset match and keeping a keen ear open for red flags.
