Phone Interview Help?!

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Oct 13, 2010 9:31 am

Last minute advice on phone interviews - unfortunately it is necessary that I am using a cell phone (so possibly starting off on the wrong, fuzzy connection, foot).

Ready....go.

Be yourself, be personable...just keep in mind that on the other end is a normal person and that, typically, people look favorably upon those like themselves. So, be kind, happy, polite, and sell yourself at the same time! :) Good luck!

It's the same as an in-person interview, except easier. Will probably be asked similar questions.

Enjoy the plus of sitting at your computer and having the person's bio/your notes etc in front of you. Make sure you're in a quiet place, and that you let the other person finish before talking - this might be a little harder without visual clues.

It's a little more awkward maybe, but really not too different from a regular interview.
