Now that the rush of 1st Quarter hiring is over with most companies, the amount of positions available for me to apply to has dropped considerably. I did, however, find a couple last week to apply to and today comes another first in job interview methods. The pre-screen e-mail. Now, screen phone interviews and screen live interviews I've experienced. But this is definitely my first pre-screen e-mail attachment:
So, I filled it out and sent it back over, hopefully resulting a real life interview. Although, I have to say, I didn't really mind the e-mail screen. I feel more relaxed writing and I prefer not having to get all gussied up and drive out somewhere if they're just not going to hire me anyway. I imagine they feel the same.
