Finding Talent Chapter 4: Telephone Screening Interview

Because of language issues and cultural differences, conducting telephone screening interviews with skilled immigrant job candidates can be especially challenging for employers. (Version française.)

This challenge, and how to overcome it, is addressed in the fourth instalment of Finding Talent, a training video by TRIEC that follows the fictional experiences of MetroCan Technologies as it considers hiring a skilled immigrant named Tarek.

In this chapter, the HR professional provides advice on how to address cultural nuances in candidates’ answers to interview questions over the phone.

Tips for Employers:

  • Resume screening software programs may screen out good candidates for a position.
  • A standard telephone pre-screen form provides consistency.
