According to a recent survey conducted by TracFone, 92 percent of HR managers say that phone interviews are critical to advancing consideration of a candidate and narrowing down the pool of applicants. That’s why TracFone is teaming up with Vanessa Williams and Dress for Success to launch “Success is Calling,” a new program that aims to help women establish a foundation for successful careers by providing tools they need to conduct phone interviews, make good first impressions and ultimately enter into and thrive in the workplace. Having started her career from the ground-up, Vanessa understands first-hand the importance of making a good first impression during the interview process and is advocating for the program.
TracFone will provide women who complete the “Success is Calling” program with a new smartphone and year of airtime to support them as they prepare to enter the workplace. And, during the month of April, TracFone is donating 20 percent of all handset sales at Walmart, up to $525,000, to Dress for Success to help disadvantaged women build careers.
