In many recruitment processes, employers narrow down the applicant pool before scheduling interviews by conducting phone screens. Not to be confused with a phone interview, phone screens occur after employers and hiring managers have reviewed resumes and cover letters.

While it’s not an interview, it is a sign that you may be qualified for one or more available positions. […]

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination based on sex (including sexual orientation, pregnancy, and gender identity). Between the fiscal years 2018 and 2021, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) received an alarming 98,000(+) charges alleging harassment.  The influx of harassment cases in 2018 and 2019 was likely a product of the viral #MeToo movement, which provided people comfort in unveiling their encounter.

Leadership is defined as ‘the action of leading a group of people or organization’. This can be interpreted in several ways, though we believe the true meaning of leadership goes far beyond the surface. In November 2021, a recorded 4.5 million U.S. workers quit their jobs and poor leadership is believed to be a contributing factor. In a time of perpetual change, people are clinging to those willing to pave the way to a brighter, more steadfast future.
