Many organizations conduct phone interviews with candidates who appear to be qualified on paper to see if they are ready for longer, more in-depth interviews. This is referred to as a phone screen, as it can be a daunting round even for seasoned job seekers. However, in this blog, you will get to know a few tips with which you can be prepared for the telephonic round.
1. Know How to Respond to ‘Tell Me Something About Yourself’
You need to prepare how to introduce yourself. First and foremost, you should develop an elevator pitch for your profession. Once you’ve developed a compelling (short) professional narrative, run it by some friends to see if it’s as clear and engaging. And remember to be yourself. If you showcase something that you are not, the interview will see right through you.
2. Conduct a Thorough Research
First, read the job description to learn more about the position you’re interviewing for and what questions the interviewer might ask you over the phone. Then do some research on the company. Visit their website, Google search for the latest news updates, read employee testimonials on other websites, and follow them on social media
