Telephone Game


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.

  1. Find out how long the interview should take.
  2. Make sure it’s quiet.
  3. Use a real phone.
  4. Disable call waiting.
  5. Have a copy of your resume in front of you.
  6. Change your clothes (my favorite tip!)
  7. Don’t smoke.
  8. Pace yourself.
  9. Prepare some questions of your own.
  10. Relax.
