More on Phone Interviews ❏ Dress up even though you are not being seen! NO PJ’s! ❏ Talk with a smile! You will have a more appealing and friendly tone. ❏ Use the Bathroom. (Sounds Silly but it’s very important) ❏ Utilize resources to your ability. (Company website at hand) ❏ Take advantage of the lack of visibility *but to a certain point.* ❏ Lack of visual cues from interviewer, so stress verbal communication and ask questions.
