If you make to the interview stage of a job application, theres a chance you may be asked to interview by phone. Generally the same sort of prep work for an in-person interview will still benefit you, but theres also some other things you need to take into account as well. When you are applying for jobs in Twin Falls, here are some tips you should remember if you interview over the phone, courtesy of Andrew G. Rosen at U.S. News.
1. Have your resume and some notes with you: having all of that stuff in front of you during the conversation allows for easy references and will remind of talking points you want to bring up.
2. Make the call at home: you want the call to take place in a relatively controlled environment with minimal distractions. Calling from your own residence will provide that.
3. Be prepared: according to Rosen, it is best to be ready (with all of your materials) at least five minutes before the call comes in. He also says that interviewers may call early to test candidates.
4. Be mindful of your body language: despite the fact that you arent physically in the room with your interviewer, body language is still a factor in the phone interview. Rosen suggests finding a middle ground with your body; dont move around too much and dont stay too still.
