Phone Interview Tips

A phone interview is still an interview! And an interview is simply a conversation between two people in which you are your own salesperson.

Be Prepared
Just like a normal interview, research the company and have a copy of the job description
Create a comfortable environment without distractions
Ensure your phone is able to take calls, not on silent and fully charged
Have references and any questions you may have ready

Be Mindful
Smile while you are speaking
Careful of your tone and word choices
Speak with confidence and at a comfortable pace and volume as the interviewer is likely taking notes

Listen & Engage
Pay attention to the interviewer’s questions
Don’t be afraid to ask for clarification or a moment to think about your answer
Take notes on any follow up tasks your interviewer gives you
