If an interview by phone seems daunting, take heed. Though the non-verbal dynamics of phone and in-person interviews differ, their purpose and content do not. In both cases, employers are assessing talent, experience, and motivation—and deciding whom to invite for the next step, usually a face-to-face meeting.
Without the visual cues of a personal meeting, you might feel disoriented at first. With preparation and experience, however, you’ll make phone meetings manageable, productive, and even enjoyable.
