My first-year students have been busy requesting recommendations for summer jobs and internships and seeking out resume and interview advice. Seeking new job search resources to share with my students, I began following former corporate HR exec Kerry Sandberg Scott on Twitter and at her blog. She shares this advice on telephone interviews.
- Find out how long the interview should take.
- Make sure it’s quiet.
- Use a real phone.
- Disable call waiting.
- Have a copy of your resume in front of you.
- Change your clothes (my favorite tip!)
- Don’t smoke.
- Pace yourself.
- Prepare some questions of your own.
