Dr. Lowery:

 

I would like to provide one suggestion for those submitting resumes for any job posting.  If the candidate puts a phone number on the resume, which they should, please have them set up a voice mail box and check it periodically.  Several candidates did not have a voicemail set up or it was an automated one which does not sound too professional. 

 

I know many use their phone only for texting and data, however those are not always the best means of communication.  Many employers, including myself, like to have a quick phone interview to see if the candidate meet the job requirements (available hours, drivers license, and other job specific requirements).
