How to succeed in your telephone interviews

  Date Posted:  December 12, 2018

A telephone interview is a screening tool that many employers use to narrow down their pool of applicants and help them decide who advances in the process. Employers use this tool to minimize the expenses and time involved in interviewing out-of-town candidates. Here are some guidelines that you should follow to keep your telephone interview concise, professional and productive:

Your Introduction
You should first learn how to introduce yourself in a professional manner. A good introduction will leave a strong impression on your potential employer.

Mind your manners
Use formal language with a positive tone and remember to show gratitude for their time and the opportunity.

Create a positive ending
Before ending your call, thank your interviewer as this may move you one-step forward in getting the job.
