When shortlisting staff I have a hard look at the resumes and cover letters looking for experience and skills. I also look for any discrepencies, gaps in employment etc.
Once I have several suitable resumes I do a short telephone interview so as not to waste my time and the candidates time. If the candidate seems worth an interview then a face-to-face meeting can be arranged. If possible, I usually interview 4-6 candidates all on one day.Social tagging: parents as employers > Services for People with a Physical Disability > Services for People with Intellectual Disabilities > Small Business Tips
