So you’ve got a telephone interview. Hurrah!

Now what do you do?

Key points:

  • Interviews are a two-way discussion
  • Arrange a time that is convenient for you
  • Have a professional message on the telephone number you have given the company
  • Prepare thoroughly
  • Review your CV and have it in front of you
  • Prepare questions
  • Have a notebook and pen ready
  • Research the interviewer
  • Behave like it’s a face-to-face interview
  • Give vocal clues
  • Take your time

Now, here’s what to avoid:

  • Waffle
  • Using the loudspeaker
  • Informality

Good luck if you have any telephone interviews coming up.
