PASSING THE PHONE SCREEN

Monday, June 17, 2013 10:15 am - Tuesday, June 18, 2013 12:00 am

Presented by:  Brian Graham, Founder and Editor in Chief of the Workplace and Career Intelligence Report

Today’s reality is that your first interview will be a phone screen!  Making a good impression is the only path to an in-person interview.  However, candidates spend little or no time preparing for one while they devote hours preparing for an in-person interview.  If you are looking for ways to gain a competitive edge, join Brian as he provides point-by-point guidance and script development for passing your first phone screen.  This will be an interactive working session where you’ll leave with practical and proven strategies and tactics for moving from phone screen to interview.  This is an important career strategy session for all, both currently employed as well as those in the job market.  With today’s economic volatility, being prepared for your next move is a true necessity.

Brian Graham, Editor-in- Chief of The Workforce and Career Intelligence Report and former Director, Global Talent Acquisition for Fortune 500 Company Navistar International.
