Like in-person interview, a telephone job interview is also important to impress your potential employer so be ready for it before the phone rings. They will not bother to call you if they think you’re not up to par with the job based on your application and your resume. Do not disappoint him or her by sounding sloppy, reckless, and disorganized when answering questions even to set time for you to visit the office in person.
Only a handful of people – even among professionals – can say that talking to a potential employer on a telephone job interview is not nerve-racking. If you think you belong to the crowd, it doesn’t hurt to practice a telephone job interview by asking a friend or a family member to do a mock interview with you.
