CollegeGrad.com presents "Mastering Your Phone Interview." Watch this video to succeed in your interview.
Hi, everyone. I'm Brian Krueger with CollegeGrad.com and this is The Job Search Minute. To master your phone interview, you need to do your best to match the personality of the person to whom you are speaking. How can you do this? Just as you would with personality matching in the face-to-face interview, you should seek to match with the interviewer-speaking rate, and pitch. Remember to stay within your own personality range, but venture toward that portion of your range that most closely matches that of your interviewer. This is an excellent way to establish rapport quickly over distance and phone lines. Also watch for verbal cues, use frequent pauses to give the interviewer the opportunity to ask additional questions or redirect the flow of the interview. As you listen, take good notes and circle topics you want to emphasize. This has been The Job Search Minute, for more career information please visit CollegeGrad.com.
