Prepare your info

Interviewing over the phone may seem daunting, but there are ways to succeed. Take advantage of the situation by preparing the information and resources you’ll need, and have them handy during the interview. Some things to prepare include:

  • Company research
  • Your resume and the job application
  • Answers to potential interview questions
  • Relevant questions you have for the company

Being prepared with these “cheat sheets” will have you set for anything the interview throws your way. You should also keep a notepad and pen at the ready to jot down details or questions that may pop up during the phone interview.

Sound matters

When an interview is over the phone, sound quality is very important. Practice talking on the phone with a friend to make sure you sound confident and are easy to understand. As important as your voice, the sound of your surroundings should be kept in check as well. Choose a quiet location for your interview where you can focus.
