Phone Interview: Nail It to Get the Next Interview

Having distributed teams is a common thing for many companies today. And sometimes their entire organization is completely virtual.

As a consequence, doing phone interviews throughout the whole process is becoming more and more common.

Interviewing over the phone is a skill set that needs to be mastered like anything else. And for this reason, our entire show today is dedicated to this topic.

Executive phone interviews are very different from an in-person or video interview. They pose special challenges you need to be aware of. And when the job position you want is on the line, you need to know how to make the right impression.
