Phone Screening

Last week I had to phone screen over 30 applicants for our open positions. I called using my cell phone in a different room so I could hear the conversation. I left voicemails for 80% of the people I called and left them my desk phone to call back. By the end of the week it was a complete disaster because my desk phones voicemail was not set up and all calls were forwarded to the front desk. Safe to say that setting up my voicemail on the seventh week of my internship became my number one priority. Luckily my favorite HR employee had my back and contacted the applicants.
