Interviewing Remotely – Quick Tips

Hi. John Perry here. I have decided to come up with some quick tips on ways to be successful on a Telephone Interview, since many people may never have done one before…

  1. The first thing that comes to mind, especially on a cell phone, is to make sure you have good reception for your phone call. Pick the room in your home with the best reception if you are using a cell. If you are on a landline, pick a room with a door you can close to keep out distractions and other noise.
  2. Answer the telephone within two to three rings. Greet the interviewer in a positive and professional manner. “Hello, John speaking…”
  3. Body language and posture can also have an effect on your voice so sit up straight or take the call standing, and remember to smile!
  4. Think about the pace of your answers… You will be nervous and may find yourself talking quickly. Walk around while you talk on the phone, this will help you slow down and feel more at ease. Keep your notes handy to refer to if you have them.
  5. Focus on the interviewer. Just because they can’t see you, don’t be distracted by emails, or drinking tea, etc. You can let the interviewer know you are interested by giving reassuring signs when they are talking such as “I see”, “yes”, and/or “okay” etc.
  6. At the end of the interview, thank the interviewer for their time, and let them know you enjoyed the interview, restate your interest in the role and ask what the next steps are.
  7. Follow-up the telephone interview, by sending a thank you email the same day.

Happy New Year Mr Robinson

I would like to express my experience that I had when dealing with your professional team at your center which indeed have changed a lot in my job search.

My experience in your center was very rich by the fact that I benefited from guidance services, CV, cover letter, how to pass an interview and Branding statement...etc.

Because of these workshops, I had the pleasure to work with Laurie, Betty, Kristina, John, Judy and Lisa, they were all amazing and very professional.

It is difficult for me to find the exact words to express my gratitude and to thank each member of this great team that you have but, above all, I would like to especially thank Betty for her good work, I was able to get my first job. in Winnipeg plus I got a lot of encouraging feedback from other employers. I also would like to thank Laurie, because of her I was able to understand and have love in what I do and also how to search for future jobs with love.

In short, you guys are simply a magnificent and professional team I have ever worked with.

Thanks again and Happy New Year
