As mentioned in the previous instalment of Interviews of the future, where I covered video interview prep, we are and will be experiencing a very unique and unprecedented time ahead of us, especially regarding jobs and their interviews. Many companies may have previously used phone calls to candidates as the first step in the interview process, to start getting an idea of who that person is and if they’re the right fit. This might still be the first step that employers use, which then could be followed by a video interview. Or the phone interview may be the only step, depending on the circumstances.
Taking this on board, you need to be prepared for either scenario. As there will be a lot of similarities between video and phone prep, I won’t bore you with repeating everything that was previously mentioned. This blog will cover some additional tips and differences to keep in mind when being heard but not seen.
Now before your phone call is scheduled, read these tips, take a deep breath, and you’ll be ready to go.
