Step III: Screening

The goal of this recruiting stage is to narrow down your applicants to the very best candidates.

Screening stage begins with reviewing employment applications, which usually consist of resumes, motivational letter and/or portfolios. The goal of reviewing these documents is to find applicants whose qualifications, skills and experiences best match your vacant job description.

These candidates then go into the next round of screening – a telephone informational interview. Candidates who make this cut are shortlisted and invited to a face to face interview.
