My recent feature in the National Resume Writers Association (NRWA) “Ask the Experts” forum 09/10/18
To prepare for a phone interview, have the following items ready: 1. Your resume, job ad, and company research. 2. Question(s) you want to ask. 3. Glass of water. 4. Turn off call-waiting. 5. Talk on headset or landline, no speaker phone. 6. Take notes by hand to avoid typing noise in background. Interview in distraction-free, closed door environment, no children, dogs, television, etc.
