A lot of companies use telephone screeners to do an initial screen to see if the candidates really are ones they want to pursue. The is a time consuming process and isn’t always the most accurate way to give you the info you need. A better way is to use an Internet interviewing system that allows you to create a list of questions to ask all candidates for a certain position. A link is sent to the candidate so there isn’t a scheduling drill that needs to be accomplished. A candidate requires a web cam to complete the process. Each question is presented and then the candidate has 90 seconds to answer it. This process provides for a more uniform process for screening candidates.
