The 15 Minute Phone Pre-Interview

The 15 Minute Phone Pre-Interview 

Module Introduction

Even when your job advertisement is crystal clear and extremely precise about the skills and knowledge required to gain the position, you’re still going to get unqualified, but hopeful, applicants seeking an interview with you.

And there’s nothing wrong with that – from their perspective. However, for you, undertaking a full interview with these people simply means a waste of valuable time that could’ve been spent doing more gainful and profitable things.

This is why conducting a short, focussed phone interview before committing to an in-depth interview is a wise strategy. It ensures that only pre-qualified people make it to a face-to-face interview with you, which in turn, means you’re far less likely to hire emotionally and end up regretting it. It also represents a substantial saving of your time, which also has a financial value.



Recruiting new staff is a very important part of your business, and getting the right team member can even make or break your salon.

This essential phone interview strategy will ensure only the right job prospects make it through to the interview stage, ensuring your valuable time is not wasted and you don’t hire from an emotional position.

The Employment Application

The Employment Application

Module Lead-in:

It appears to have become common practice when recruiting new team members to accept resumes in place of Employment Applications completed by the prospective employee.

This is a mistake for many reasons which we’ll cover in this module.

Deceptive Resumes
Unfortunately, resumes may appear to provide all the necessary information you require before making a hiring decision, but in fact, they can be (read that as usually are) very creative as well as extremely deceptive…


Hiring new staff members is not only time-consuming but an extremely costly exercise.  Therefore hiring without sufficient information about your potential new employee is something that needs to be avoided.

A well-constructed Employment Application allows you to gather all the necessary information to make an informed decision about your next new team member thus avoiding a major headache.
