Jan Reha and Kary York Outline the Steps in the Interview Process

In this segment Jan Reha, Career Discovery and Kary York, Insurance Resourcing Insurance Resourcing, discuss the Various Stages of the Interview Process.

The Phone Interview is the first step in the interview process. Make sure the interview is scheduled for a time that works for you.  This first interview involves basic knock out questions.  Understand that this stage is used for screening and may not be affiliated with the company.

The next phase is the ‘Face to Face’ interview.  Before walking through the door, get a clear understanding of their interview process. Finding someone who has previously interviewed with this company is helpful.  Make sure you know who you will be meeting with. Research the interviewer to know the employee’s title and their role in the company. Keep in mind that you will be meeting with multiple people throughout the interview process, so treat each person with a valuable impression.

The second interview varies depending on the company. For example, there might be a technical testing interview for a statistical-based position. This interview examines how well you follow direction and evaluates your fit with the company. Before moving forward, ask for feedback on each stage of the interview process. Do not assume the interview went well. Find your point of contact with the company, whether it be your interviewer or HR manager, and ask for their critique. A simple assessment will prepare you for the next stage of the interview.

"I was going through so much trauma and Jan was very supportive emotionally and personally. She did all of the career and personality testing to identify my interests. She looked at my family's career background. Then she identified the jobs that fit my interests and my background. She is aware of what is going in the workforce and of the demand for jobs. She kept me motivated and looking to the future, guiding me to immediately take classes at the community college and to start thinking about working for temp agencies that hire for the companies I would eventually be interested in working for." -Valerie, 43, Renton;
