Interviewing for Your Chico Job by Phone


If you don’t get a chance for a face-to-face interview, then it is time to brush up on your phone skills. Many of the same principles of face-to-face interviews will still be applicable, but there are a few other things you should be concerned with. When you are interviewing via phone for jobs in Chico, here are some tips you should remember if you interview over the phone, courtesy of Andrew G. Rosen at U.S. News.

1. Have your resume and some notes with you: having notes in front of you allows for easy referencing and will remind you of any questions or talking points you wish to discuss. Rosen recommends having physical copies of these things if you don’t have internet access.

2. Make the call at home: doing so puts you in a relatively controlled environment with fewer distractions. This is the best place for you to be during a phone interview.

3. Be prepared: according to Rosen, you and all of your materials should be ready at least five minutes before the call comes in. He also says that interviewers may call early to test candidates.

4. Be mindful of your body language: this may seem odd, considering that no one will actually be looking at you, but it can still affect your interview performance. Rosen suggests finding a middle ground with your body; don’t move around too much and don’t stay too still.
