A telephone interview is often the first step in a job interview process; It can be as short as 10 minutes, or it can last an hour. However getting it done is no mean job. You need to chase the panel and candidate to schedule it, there will be multiple cancellations. Followed by personnels from different departments who might want to talk to the candidate and each time you follow the same ordeal.And there is absolutely no way to know who spoke on phone with you, and even if it is the candidate himself there is no way to gauge his personality, body language or cultural fit.Ultimately, there is no guarantee that the candidate will turn up for the final round of interview at your office.
