If you’ve never had a phone interview in the past, get ready, because they’re in full force and they’re heading your way. Phone interviews have become the new way to screen applicants before an in-person interview. They’re becoming more and more popular as the job market becomes global, and considering the time and money saved by making a mere phone call to a candidate, phone interviews are the way to go.
Though you may think phone interviews are informal and a little more relaxed, think again. The phone interviewer is probably your first human contact with the recruiter, you’ll want to be prepared and make the very best first impression.
