Yes….Phone interviews are very important. They are the door you walk through to get to the next step. Success on the phone interview is paramount. There is no such thing as a courtesy phone interview. It’s make or break.
Time to be at your best. It’s OK to be nervous. Most employers are nervous too in phone or face-to-face interview sessions. Interviews cause anxiety.
The key: BE PREPARED and be the best you that you can be for the session that could usually last from 30-90 minutes.
