Telephone Interview Tips

  • Interview in a quiet place.
  • If possible, use a landline phone and temporarily disable call waiting.
  • Keep these items at hand: copies of materials you have sent the interviewer (resume, cover letter, writing samples, etc.), information you have received from the organization, a “cheat sheet” of research information you have gathered about the organization, a list of your significant experiences and skills that you wish to communicate, a list of your questions about the organization and the position, pen and paper.
  • Consider standing throughout the interview. It will help you project energy and reduces the risk of sounding too casual over the phone.
  • Smile and be enthusiastic.
