Tips how to handle phone interviews

If the caller is speaking in English on set of the call, do your best to converse in the same manner.

Caller: Hi good morning! I am looking for Juan?

You: Yes, This is him/her / Yes speaking / Speaking.

I prefer to respond using “speaking” because of 2 main reasons. 1st its a single word response nothing can go wrong. 2nd with proper conviction sounds professional and it gives the caller a good impression about you.

Be straight forward in answering.

When answering questions, be straight for ward as much as possible. If the question is answerable by yes or no don’t bother to give a lengthy explanation.


Caller : Are you still working with the X123 company?

You: No.


Caller : Are you still working with the X123 company?

You: Not anymore, because of my supervisor and yada yada yada.

If you are doing the “Don’t” example quit it. It gives the phone interviewer the impression that you are overly defensive. Wait until the phone interviewer ask for further details.


Be ready with a pen and paper / make sure your phone has enough juice.

Self explanatory.

Don’t stutter, Listen attentively, Avoid feelers.

Relax just think that its just a friend calling. That way you will lessen the chance of stuttering. Make sure to focus on what the interviewer is saying.

Don’t engage too much, unless you can handle it.

Small talks are good, just be careful because it backfires sometimes.
