Phone Interview Tips
Telephone Interview Tips & Techniques

Employers use telephone interviews as a way of identifying and recruiting candidates for employment. Phone interviews are often used to screen candidates in order to narrow the pool of applicants who will be invited for in-person interviews. They are also used as way to minimize the expenses involved in interviewing out-of-town candidates.

While you're actively job searching, it's important to be prepared for a phone interview on a moment's notice. You never know when a recruiter or a networking contact might call and ask if you have a few minutes to talk. Review these tips, then take a look at our phone interview tips video for more advice on how to pull off your phone interview without a hitch.

Be Prepared to Interview

Prepare for a phone interview just as you would for a regular interview. Compile a list of your strengths and weaknesses, as well as a list of answers to typical phone interview questions. In addition, plan on being prepared for a phone conversation about your background and skills.

* Keep your resume in clear view, on the top of your desk, or tape it to the wall near the phone, so it's at your fingertips when you need to answer questions.
* Have a short list of your accomplishments available to review.
* Have a pen and paper handy for note taking.
* Turn call-waiting off so your call isn't interrupted.
* If the time isn't convenient, ask if you could talk at another time and suggest some alternatives.
* Clear the room - evict the kids and the pets. Turn off the stereo and the TV. Close the door.
* Unless you're sure your cell phone service is going to be perfect, consider using a landline rather than your cell phone to avoid a dropped call or static on the line.

Practice Interviewing

Talking on the phone isn't as easy as it seems. I've always found it's helpful to practice. Have a friend or family member conduct a mock interview and tape record it so you can see how you sound over the phone. Any cassette recorder will work. You'll be able to hear your "ums" and "uhs" and "okays" and you can practice reducing them from your conversational speech. Also rehearse answers to those typical questions you'll be asked.

During the Phone Interview

* Don't smoke, chew gum, eat, or drink.
* Do keep a glass of water handy, in case you need to wet your mouth.
* Smile. Smiling will project a positive image to the listener and will change the tone of your voice.
* Speak slowly and enunciate clearly.
* Use the person's title (Mr. or Ms. and their last name.) Only use a first name if they ask you to.
* Don't interrupt the interviewer.
* Take your time - it's perfectly acceptable to take a moment or two to collect your thoughts.
* Give short answers.
* Remember your goal is to set-up a face-to-face interview. After you thank the interviewer ask if it would be possible to meet in person.

After the Interview:

* Take notes about what you were asked and how you answered.
* Remember to say "thank you." Follow with a thank you note which reiterates your interest in the job.

Phone Interview Do's and Don'ts
Telephone Interview Do's and Don'ts

A phone interview sounds easy, doesn't it? You don't have to get dressed in your best interview attire, travel to a company's office, or interview one-on-one with a hiring manager. Instead, you're interviewing on the phone from the comfort of home.

It's not as easy as it seems though. You can blow a phone interview just as easily as you can blow an in-person interview. Dropped calls, background noise, not knowing about the company, and/or not being prepared to respond to interview questions can knock you out of contention for a job.

Review these tips for how to conduct a phone interview and what not to do when you're interviewing via the telephone to make sure your phone interviews get you to the next step in the hiring process.

Phone Interview Do's and Don'ts

Create a checklist. Review the job posting and make a list of how your qualifications match the hiring criteria. Have the list available so you can glance at it during the interview. Also have a copy of your resume in clear view, so you don't have to remember what you did when.

Research the job and the company. Take some time to research the job and the company. The more prepared you are for the interview, the smoother it will go.

Prepare for phone interview questions. Review answers to typical phone interview questions and think about how you're going to respond.

Use a land line. Unless your cell phone service is 100% all the time, use a land line instead of a cell phone. That way you won't have to worry about dropped calls and getting disconnected.

Turn off call waiting. If you have call waiting turn it off. The beep of an incoming call is distracting and can make you lose your focus.

Get rid of the distractions. Interview in a private quiet space. That means securing a babysitter if you have small children at home and kicking the dog, the cat, and the rest of the household members out of your interview space.

Have a glass of water nearby. There isn't much worse than having a tickle in your throat or a cough starting when you need to talk on the phone. Have a glass of water handy so you can take a quick sip if your mouth gets dry or there's a catch in your throat.

Take notes. It's hard to remember what you discussed after the fact, so take brief notes during the interview.

Focus, listen, and enunciate. It's important to focus on the interview and that can be harder on the phone than in-person. Be sure to listen to the question, ask for clarification if you're not sure what the interviewer is asking, and speak slowly, carefully, and clearly when you respond. It's fine to take a few seconds to compose your thoughts before you answer.

Pay attention to body language. This might sound strange, but your body language matters on the phone almost as much as it does during a face-to-face meeting. Focus on the interviewer, smile, and think positive. You'll make a better impression.

Multi-task. This won't work for everyone, but if you can multi-task have the company's website open in your browser, so you can quickly check for company information if it comes up in the conversation.

Have questions to ask the interviewer ready. Be prepared to respond when the interview asks whether you have any questions for him or her. Review these questions to ask the interviewer and have a few ready in advance.

Follow up after the phone interview. Ask for the interviewer's email address, if you don't already have it. Send out an email thank you note immediately, thanking the interviewer and reiterating your interest in the job. Use your thank you note as a way, as well, to provide information on anything regarding your qualifications you didn't get a chance to mention during the phone interview.

Interview Questions and Answers
Interview Questions to Ask the Interviewer

It's your turn! As the interview comes to a close, one of the final questions you may be asked is "What can I answer for you?" Have interview questions of your own ready to ask. You aren't simply trying to get this job - you are also interviewing the employer to assess whether this company and the position are a good fit for you.

Interview Questions to Ask

* How would you describe the responsibilities of the position?
* How would you describe a typical week/day in this position?
* Is this a new position? If not, what did the previous employee go on to do?
* What is the company's management style?
* Who does this position report to? If I am offered the position, can I meet him/her?
* How many people work in this office/department?
* How much travel is expected?
* Is relocation a possibility?
* What is the typical work week? Is overtime expected?
* What are the prospects for growth and advancement?
* How does one advance in the company?
* Are there any examples?
* What do you like about working here?
* What don't you like about working here and what would you change?
* Would you like a list of references?
* If I am extended a job offer, how soon would you like me to start?
* What can I tell you about my qualifications?
* When can I expect to hear from you?
* Are there any other questions I can answer for you?

Interview Questions NOT to Ask

* What does this company do? (Do your research ahead of time!)
* If I get the job when can I take time off for vacation? (Wait until you get the offer to mention prior commitments)
* Can I change my schedule if I get the job? (If you need to figure out the logistics of getting to work don't mention it now...)
* Did I get the job? (Don't be impatient. They'll let you know.)
