Phone Interview Etiquette

Monday, May 20
10:00 a.m.–10:45 a.m.

Kristin Osterkamp, CIH

Phone interview etiquette is just as important as in-person interview etiquette. When it comes to getting hired, a successful phone interview can be instrumental in getting you to the next step in the hiring process.

While actively job searching, it’s important to be prepared at a moment’s notice for a phone interview. You never know when a recruiter, an employer or a networking contact might call and ask if you have a few minutes to talk.

This seminar will provide you with an understanding of what you might expect during a phone interview and how best to prepare.
