Processing inbound applicants:
Using an ATS, the Interviewer either moves candidates on to the Phone Screen Stage or follows our Rejection Protocol, using a careful eye for detail on a candidate’s written communication, spelling, and grammar, as well as a curiosity about them holistically as you review resumes, Linkedin and other links provided.
Conducting phone screens: In this stage, the Interviewer puts their journalistic hat on. They instantly 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.
Reference checks: For mid-level to senior candidates, the Interviewer will also follow the Reference Check Protocol, both given and back-channel, to get a better understanding of the candidate’s experiences, strengths, weaknesses, and what will help them succeed while looking for red flags.
