Screening Interviews

Employers use screening interviews to determine if there might be a match between the candidate and the position. Generally they will not make a hiring decision based upon the screening interview but will narrow the candidate pool to the top candidates for a more indepth, on-site interview. The typical screening interview lasts 30 to 60 minutes and may be over the phone or in person.

Screening interview format:

  • Welcome and introductions
  • Small talk
  • Interviewer describes company and job
  • Questions for the interviewer
  • Questions for the candidate
  • Closing
