Phone Interviews

Before the face-to-face interviews, you may have a telephone interview. Here are some tips to ensure a successful telephone interview:

  • Schedule the interview period for a time when you won't be distracted.

  • Control your environment. Keep the dog chained in the backyard. Make sure the kids have a babysitter. Turn off TVs and radios. Ensure all distractions are kept to a minimum. Better yet, eliminate all distractions.

  • Use a landline if one is available.

  • Have a glass of water nearby, in case you get dry mouth.

  • Have your interview notes and resume in front of you. Highlight those areas you believe are most important.

  • Vary your pitch and response time. Don't rush. Calculate your responses.

  • Do not multi-task. Pay careful attention to the process. Having to ask the interviewer to repeat a question or comment indicates inattention.
