Put in prep for a phone interview
A lot of employers use phone interviews to speak with candidates initially. You want to put just as much preparation into a phone interview as you would a face-to-face meeting. Do research on the company ahead of time, have a list of your accomplishments and your resume in front of you, and make sure there’s a pen and paper handy for notes. Try to use a land line if possible to avoid dropped calls, but if you are calling in on a cell phone, make sure to turn your volume off and Do Not Disturb on. You don’t want to be competing with notifications during your interview.
