Dealing with a phone interview

Many companies’ world wide conduct phone interviews while selecting their employees. The process is not practiced as widely in Nepal as yet, but many companies are starting to follow suit. Companies in Nepal are also starting to realize the efficiency of phone interviews. By conducting a phone interview with the applicants first, the company can select those who are qualified to enter the next stage of the interview, thus simplifying the process altogether.

If you are one of those seeking a job, it is advised you be prepared to give an interview via telephone. The interview process itself can last anything between 10 to 30 minutes and how you speak within those minutes will determine whether you make it through to the next round.

Find out if the company you have decided to apply for will conduct a telephone interview.

Be certain of your career goals. Unless you are certain of your career goals you will not be able to convince your interviewer that you are capable. You must be certain that you can turn your goals, your ideas and objectives into reality. To develop a strong mental image of what you want, you are suggested to write down your goals in a piece of paper and read that aloud everyday. To have a clear image of your career objectives is the basic necessity of any kind of interview.

You should be prepared to give your interview at any given time. It could be in the mornings and if you are a late sleeper, you will have to adjust to that. You might even be caught off guard if your cell phone rings while you are shopping or visiting some place else. For such reasons you must be prepared before hand.

Don’t take the interview lightly. This interview will need just as much as preparation as any other interview. Get some information about the company, its market position and the nature and requirements of job you are applying for. And it is possible you may get nervous and forget many things, so you should keep the information handy so that you will be able to look it up in case your memory deserts you. This also includes your resume.

The outcome of the phone interview will be based solely on the way you talk. So mind your tongue as you speak. Avoid words or phrases that have double meaning and remember to be polite. Greet accordingly and don’t forget to say thanks in the end. Also never forget the interviewer’s name, and make it a point to use it once in a while during the interview. That’ll help you leave a good impression.

Just because you’re talking on the phone doesn’t mean you should sit indifferently. It is necessary that you sit properly as your body language also plays a role in you’re speech. Posture yourself properly and talk as if you were face to face.

If you get these things right, you will most likely make it to the personal interview. Keep these things in mind the next time you apply for a job opening.
