Can you ace every phone interview - and get invited to the face-to-face?
Phone interviews are really phone "screens". Employers use them to weed out candidates and come up with a short list of people to interview face-to-face. If you don't get invited to interview, you got screened out of the job. This book will keep you from getting screened out and consistently put you on the short list of candidates who get to interview in person.

This is a short and simple book that covers the basic preparation steps and typical questions in a phone interview. It could have used some more sample answers for the difficult questions, such as "what salary are you expecting" (instead of trying to push off the question until they make a hiring decision or turning the question around and asking them what is the salary range for the job).
I have been through many phone interviews and wasn't very knowledgeable about them and always left wondering what I could have done for them in preparation beforehand. After this book my eyes are wide open and my checklist is ready. I believe I will be moving forward into the next step of landing a job.
The headline for this review more or less sums things up. I would recommend listening to this in the day or so leading up to a phone interview. It is like a pep talk from an enthusiastic and informed friend. There is nothing particularly earth shattering in the recommendations but it is surprising how often they are not followed by prospective interviewees. If nothing else, it acts as a check-list that you are properly prepared.
