The Interview

Phone Interview

Here are some guidelines for successful phone interviews:

 

• In the event the interviewer misses you when calling to schedule the interview, be sure you have a professional-sounding outgoing greeting on your voicemail or answering machine. If you have others in your household, ensure that anyone who might answer the phone can professionally take a message.

 

• Consider enlisting a friend or family member to conduct a mock phone interview with you for practice.
