How to Rock a Phone Interview

Share This Post

You’ve got an interview lined up, and you’re trying to get ready so you can rock it. Be sure to give it the same level of importance as a regular face to face interview. Though it may not seem as meaningful as an on-site interview, employers use phone interviews as a way to weed out candidates before meeting face-to-face, so make sure you’re as ready as you can be.


Here are some tips to get you ready for your phone interview:

– Add the interview date/time to your calendar.

– Avoid distractions – take the call in a private place.

– Remain calm and speak at a moderate pace.

– Anticipate the question you might be asked.

– Keep a glass or bottle of water close by.

– Prepare to talk about salary and work history.

– Compile a list of questions to ask.

– Thank the interviewer for their time.
