Let’s start with the purpose of the phone Interview. I know that sounds overly simplistic, but we want to keep the goal in mind! The purpose of the phone interview is to get a face-to-face interview.
Phone Interviews can be nerve wracking but they do have one advantage over other types of interviews – you can have your materials in front of you while the interview is taking place and can reference them throughout the interview! This includes not only your resume, but also a “cheat sheet” of compelling story bullet points that you would like to introduce. It can also include a fact sheet about the employer, including specific critical points describing both the employer and their products. So, have your materials open and available when you are preparing for a phone interview. They are there to support you and enhance your ability to present yourself to the employer, who will greatly respect your ability to answer questions with focus and meaningful content.
