Phone Interview Tips

Phone Interview Tips

One of the most misunderstood aspects of the hiring process is the phone interview. In an effort to save time and resources, many employers use phone interviews to help screen out candidates that might not have the skills and personality fit for the position. However, many candidates underestimate the importance of a phone interview, thinking of it as just an administrative step in the interview process. But make no mistake, a phone interview is a “real” interview and if you do not complete it successfully, you’ll never move forward in the process.

Job Search Tips for Older Workers

Because of the number of Baby Boomers and lower birth rates of younger people, job supply and demand will eventually favor mature workers. But for now, employment opportunities can be hard to find. In March 2013, 51% of job seekers 55 and older were unemployed for 27 weeks or longer, compared with 41.7% of those ages 25 to 54, according to the AARP Public Policy Institute. Over the last two years the trend has been clear: older workers are unemployed and remain unemployed for a longer period of time.

Salary Benchmarking

Salary Benchmarking

Determining what to pay employees is a two-sided coin. Employers want to pay employees enough to help them to feel valued and avoid them looking for a better offer. But employers are also concerned with over paying employees to the point of unnecessarily inflating payroll and effecting organizational profitability. The best way to work out what you should be paying your employees is to benchmark salaries with other companies that have similar roles by reviewing salary survey data. This ensures that your pay rates are competitive enough to attract and retain high-quality employees without being overly inflated.
