Human Resources and hiring outsourcing entrepreneur, Tina Hamilton, PHR was tapped by Monster.com for a recent article entitled “Minimize Costs by Reducing Time to Hire“. She also happens to be our President and CEO, so we can tell you first hand that she was the perfect choice to quote on the subject of making smart, yet financially sound, hiring process investments during these days of economic uncertainty. Her advice to employers looking for talent while at the same time trying to reduce costs:

Streamline High-Volume Phone Interviews
“When you conduct the phone interview, ask the questions in order of importance,” says Tina Hamilton, president of HireVision Group in [Allentown], Pa. “You can end the call when it’s apparent that the candidate doesn’t qualify. Some calls will last just minutes, and few will last an hour.” Time saved is money saved.
