September Online Event Shows Job Seekers How to Overcome the Biggest Career Hurdle in Tough Times - the Telephone Screening.
Online PR News – 15-September-2011 – – NOVATO, Calif. -- With job competition at a record high, recruiters or hiring managers are using telephone screenings to narrow the field of applicants. So when the telephone rings for that initial phone screening, will you be ready? In the next Experts Connection (http://www.experts-connection.com) webinar, “The Phone Interview - Getting It Right: The Make or Break First Step,” Paul Bailo, founder of Phone Interview Pro and author of The Essential Phone Interview Handbook, will offer practical advice that you can put into practice for any telephone interview. The webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, September 21, from 4:00 - 5:30 p.m. ET, (1:00 - 2:30 p.m. PT), and is sponsored by NETSHARE® (http://www.netshare.com).
No matter what your expertise or experience, if you can't manage the first critical touch point in the job search process, you won't be able to advance your career. No matter how good you are at face-to-face interviews or how skilled you are at managing complex assignments and building new businesses, you need to be able to impart those skills quickly and compellingly over the phone in a way that edges out the other candidates and gives you a chance to meet the decision-makers.
In this webinar, Paul will teach you the strategic angles and offer tactical advice to make sure you ace the phone interview. The webinar will cover:
- Establishing a foundation for a successful screening call;
- The “dance” of the telephone interview;
- Taking control of the conversation and gaining the “home field advantage”; and
- New practice techniques for executives that have never before been revealed.
“Over the years, I have seen many executives stall in their careers because they couldn't get past the telephone screening,” said Katherine Simmons, CEO of NETSHARE and host of the Experts Connection webinars. “The strategies and techniques that Paul outlines in his book and that he will share with Experts Connection attendees have proven themselves time and again.
