Objective – To get a face to face interview.
Get company facts.
Do not cut them off – let them finish.
Stand up when you talk.
Use normal voice and speak evenly.
Speak directly into the mouth piece.
Be business like – but be yourself.
Be brief – no life histories.
Have the facts and dates about yourself written down in front of you.
Your reason for job change must be positive.
Background noises are very distracting. Make sure you are in an area where you will not be disturbed.
Try not to talk about money. Salary and benefits are poor subjects for a telephone interview. Wait for the face to face.
If asked about your current salary…reply honestly.
Write out 2 or 3 job description and location questions. Be prepared.
Do not ask selfishly motivated questions.
Show them that you are interested in them, and in the position.
Ask for a face to face interview, if you don’t ask for it, you will not get it.
Have dates and a calendar in front of you.
“Tell me about yourself?”
“Where would you like me to start?”
“What are your salary requirements?”
“My requirement is to receive the best possible offer from you based on my ability and experience”.
