Screen a Candidate - Staff

Overview of Screen a Candidate

Follow the steps below to complete the initial screening options available.

The Recruiter Phone Screen will involve general questions (e.g. salary requirements, interest level, commute, availability) before proceeding to Hiring Manager Phone Screen.

Hiring managers may skip to the Hiring Manager Phone Screen should they prefer to ask the general interest questions in addition to inquiring about the candidate’s skills, resume timeline, and candidate’s current/past job duties.

If no need of a phone screen, the hiring manager moves the candidate to Interview. Use the Interview – Staff job aid to advance or disposition the candidate further.

If you declined the candidate, their candidate profile will still be available via the Candidates tab on the job requisition, filed under Inactive Candidates.
