What To Do DURING Telephone Job Interviews

  • Use the interviewer's title (Mr or Ms and their last name). Only use their first name if they invite you to
  • Don't interrupt the interviewer. Wait for them to finish, completely
  • Think before answering phone interview questions -- better to take a moment or two and give a good answer than rush and give a bad one
  • Give concise interview answers –- you can always add "does that answer your question?" if you're worried you've not said enough
  • Try to smile –- it helps lift your voice so you sound more positive
  • Don't chew gum, eat, or smoke
  • Have a glass of water handy, in case you get a dry mouth
  • Speak slowly and clearly

AFTER The Phone Interview

  • Write down what you were asked and the answers you gave so that you're prepared for the 'real' job interview when it comes
  • Remember to say "thanks" to your interviewers. Follow up with a interview thank you letter which reiterates your interest and suitability for the job

Hopefully you're now feeling positive about your upcoming telephone interview and ready to answer any phone interview questions.
