How to prepare for a telephone interview
Where do I sit? How do I sound professional? Read this helpful list of tips and tricks to make sure you have a successful phone interview.
Don't know how to use a phone interview to your advantage? Here are several steps you can take to mastering a phone interview and making that all important impression to secure a follow-up.
FIND THE RIGHT SPACE
Try to make sure you have no distractions whilst having the conversation. Sitting at a desk always feel more structured than sitting on your bed, surrounded by your stuffed animals when you are trying to bag yourself your first ‘grown-up’ job.
DRESS TO IMPRESS
Treat this call as importantly as you would a real interview - which means dressing appropriately. No one would take you seriously if you wore your pyjamas into an office interview, so why would you wear them for this? Getting into office-appropriate wear, makes you take yourself more seriously and forces you to act the way you would in a real interview.
