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 immediately impressed by Jan. After going through the Dot-Bomb, I knew that I needed to make a career change and that I needed an experienced guide to help choose the right path. Jan's extensive professional credentials -- including her successful track record -- along with her caring, tough-love approach made it a pleasure to work with her. By interpreting standardized aptitude tests, providing counseling, and directing me to conduct career research, Jan helped me to quickly focus on a profession where I can thrive. As a result, Jan has helped me to get on a new and more successful career path. Thanks, Jan! ."--Graham, 41, Seattle
