Follow these tips to kill it on your next phone interview.
by Sydney Owen
The coolest thing about being a candidate for a position that you’re relocating for (minus the thrill of a new city, new people, new life) has got to be a phone interview. I have recently gone through a total of six phone interviews for my newest position, and I’m here to tell you, it’s not scary. I used these tips to prepare, and now I have compiled a list of my own. (Thanks, Penelope, for getting me all squared away!)
1. Go somewhere quiet
2. Dress the part, if you want
3. Have water handy
5. Don’t be afraid to think about your answers
6. Ask questions
7. Follow up—Immediately
Do you have any other tips for phone interviews? What is your preferred method of interviewing—in person or on the phone? Do you rock interviews, or do they scare you?
