Telephone interviews are very similar to face to face interviews Before the interview ensure you have prepared by reading and reviewing the job description and person specification and any other documents that were sent to you with the invitation. It’s essential that you have taken time to prepare, know all about the company and are ready for questions that demonstrate that you’ve read the material.
If you are having a telephone/video call interview try and use a quiet room where you will not have any distraction or disturbance and try and have a plain background if possible.
During a telephone interview, it will be difficult for the Interviewer to evaluate things like personal appearance, body language and personality so it is important to demonstrate your skill and experience and communicate in a clear and articulate way.
Phone and video interviews are often a lot shorter than face to face interviews; naturally, everyone is nervous before an interview whatever type it may be. Try and remain calm and positive.
