Most candidates have a misconception that phone interviews are easier as compared to face-to face interviews. The truth is, they are more or less the same and both of them should be taken seriously. The only difference is that the candidate does not go to the interviewer’s location. Here are a few tips on how to prepare for the phone interview.
Do research on the company and the job you are to be interviewed on, make sure you know the basics about the company, latest developments in the company/organisation and the job description for the job.
Confirm the interview date, time, who the interviewer is and if it is you to make the call or the interviewer (make sure your phone is not on call waiting or call blocking mode).
