About Webinar

More and more companies are conducting interviews with job candidates via phone, Skype or video conference. This is especially true for initial screening interviews where a hiring manager is simply trying to pre-screen candidates or when an individual lives too far away to justify flying in for an interview. So the chances are pretty good that, at some point in your job search, you'll be asked to participate in a 20- to 30-minute phone interview with either one person or several people. Phone interviews can be tricky, especially since you aren't able to read your interviewer’s nonverbal cues like facial expressions and body language during the session, and video interviews have their own set of challenges.

In this webinar, career expert Ross Macpherson will cover the following:

  • Types of Phone and Video Interviews
  • How to Prepare Ahead of Time for the Interview
  • Tips and Strategies During the Interview
  • Follow Up After the Interview

This session will be recorded.

Note: Ross will also be doing a second follow up webinar on "Advanced Interviewing Strategies” on Thursday, November 12th 1:00 to 2:15 pm. Details forthcoming!
