I had a phone interview called a technical screen with a large corporation today. They have somebody technically literate administer one or more tests to make sure a candidate has the skills required to do a job. If the candidate does not have the required skills, there is no need to conduct a more personal interview.
The interview went well, but not as well as I had hoped. To get past this screen, I had to do more than well, I had to do extraordinarily well.
If you’d like all of the technical details, you can read about it on my other blog, BAMapps.com.
