A screening interview is an initial job interview used to determine if a candidate is qualified for a position. It is the first step in round one of the interview process. The goal is to narrow down the list of candidates that will move on to the next round of interviews. You want to get it right from the start – so you need to be asking the best screening interview questions.
The more thought you put into your screening interview questions, the better results you will get. We put together a list of the ten best questions to ask in a screening interview, with both hard and soft-skill questions included, to help you hire top candidates.
Thanks to the world of #technology, screening interviews are no longer limited to cold phone calls. You have the option to use on demand video interviews or live video interviews. Unlike phone interviews, video interviews can give you a more complete picture of a candidate from the start. And video interviews provide a better candidate experience while saving your hiring team time and money – so replace the phone screen interview with a virtual interview.
If you want to find the best candidates right out of the gate, you need to not only ask the right questions but also take advantage of the technology you have at your fingertips. Say goodbye to the phone screen and hello to the video screen!
