Bring Out Your Best during a Phone Interview

You may have been preparing yourself about the importance of body language during an interview. But then your potential recruiter requests for a phone interview, now what? Even if your resume has managed to catch the eye of a recruiter, it is only the first step towards your ultimate goal. The next important step is to impress your hiring manager during an informal phone chat.

Our experts at Career Marshal believe that most recruiters see this as an important pre-screening process which avoids wasting time for both the recruiter and the candidates. During a telephonic interview a recruiter can gauge your availability, past experience, motivations, and expectations relating to salary and the job itself.  This type of interview forces them to pay more attention to a candidate’s language skills, which is important for a position that requires client dealing.

Have all info on hand

The worst way to start a phone interview is to not have any recollection of the job description or the recruiter. The chances are if a potential recruiter calls you they will be thrown off and it will ruin your chances of selection.  Career Marshal advises you to keep a list handy on a sheet of paper with:

  • The Position
  • Job description
  • Day you sent your application
  • Few notes about the company

It is also recommended to have a copy of your resume handy, along with a list of your strong points and weaknesses.

Make sure you are in the right place

If the recruiter calls you while you are out shopping for vegetables, or are otherwise occupied, tell them immediately to reschedule at a mutual convenient time to be professional. Make sure, however, to thank them for calling you and show your enthusiasm for this opportunity.

Our experts believe that some recruiters understand that all candidates may not available to talk at all times and it is better to have a focused conversation rather than one with a risk of interruption.

Put on a smile

Career Marshal believes that you can always hear a smile, even if it just while talking on the phone. Posture and facial expressions can be important, if you are in a grumpy mood, the recruiter might be able to catch your expressions over the phone.

Be polite, friendly and professional

This goes without saying, but it can often get lost with an informal chat over the phone. Interview Gurus at Career Marshal advise that if you are trying to aim for a face-to-face interview, you should be polite and professional.

Try giving references or anecdotes from your past experience which are relevant to the job requirements, it will make the recruiter feel that you could be a potentially good fit. It is also recommended to try and make a link between the recruiter whilst keeping it professional.

As your conversation wraps up, be sure to thank the employer and reinstate your interest in the position.  While ending the phone call make a lasting impression.
