One of the most misunderstood aspects of the hiring process is the phone interview. In an effort to save time and resources, many employers use phone interviews to help screen out candidates that might not have the skills and personality fit for the position.

Staffing Agency Red Flags

Over the years, I have had the pleasure of helping hundreds of finance, technology, legal and office candidates find jobs. I take a great deal of pride in what I do, and enjoy helping candidates and employers connect. But for every 100 staffing agencies that are out there working hard to be honest and professional, there is one or two that just don’t operate as they should.
