eBay Launches New Gift Card Mall -- Direct From Retailers

eBay launched the Gift Card Mall this past Wednesday, which is actually an eBay Store powered by Blackhawk Network - that's the company that operates GiftCardMall.com, which calls itself the largest provider of third-party gift cards in the U.S. and Canada. eBay spokesperson Johnna Hoff said the new Gift Card Mall on eBay would give shoppers a new option for purchasing gift cards from popular retailers. For a limited time, shoppers will get free shipping, plus double eBay Bucks when they purchase through the gift card mall, according to Hoff. These gift cards are vetted differently than those from regular eBay Sellers, as they are being sent direct from the retail companies. If any of you are looking for gift cards this holiday season, please visit our new Gift Card Mall to find great deals! Also, eBay recently launched a new version of its iPhone app, just in time for the holiday season. It offers a simple, streamlined eBay bidding experience on the iPhone and consolidates the buying and selling functions previously available in separate apps. You can now search and browse through listings, bid on items, even pay for items through your iPhone. Also included: Quick access to PayPal for payments and daily deals, saved searches, reminders, and color customization. Download the new app for free in the iTunes Store. Click here for Gift Card Mall.

eBay Inc Asset Protection team would like to congratulate our retail partners on the large scale ORC arrests highlighted last week in the D&D briefing! For further information on PROACT , email inquiries to; PROACT@eBay.com

Phone interviewing has become a standard first interview for today's employers.  It is an efficient way to screen out the overwhelming number of job seekers responding to the few openings in the current market.  The employers use this opportunity to evaluate how effectively you communicate over the phone.  Their ideal goal is to identify the top 2 to 5 candidates that they want to move forward to a second interview.  The first phone interview is just as important as your final face-to-face interview. Do you know what it takes to beat out hundreds of job seekers and prevail as a leading candidate in a phone interview?

Preparation
: Researching the company and the details of the job responsibilities is a good starting point to separate yourself from your competition.  Obviously, the employer's website is a good source in obtaining information, but we suggest digging deeper.  Review blogs regarding the company, read public profiles of their employees with the same job title (Linked-in), visit stores and talk with the employees, etc.  You need to approach your preparation like an investigation and find out as much as you can.

Good Luck
Gus Downing
