Phone interviews are popular these days for a good reason: efficiency. They save everyone’s time and effort.
However, they also miss communication cues that are present during typical face-to-face interviews, which makes phone interviews a little trickier.
Here are some tips that might help you prepare, as compiled by Ladders:
1. Remove distractions
Distractions are your worst enemy. Beware of anything that might take your attention away, whether its sound or vision.
Try making the phone call indoors and pay attention to the slightest sound, like traffic or washing machine, as smartphones might pick them up.
Turn off phone notifications beforehand. Make sure the area is clean before you start the phone call. The less distraction, the more focused you’ll be.
