Publisher's Summary

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.

What this book will do for you:

  • Give you exceptional answers to common phone interview questions
  • Warn you about phone interview mistakes that get you screened out
  • Help you be confident, relax, and make a fantastic first impression
  • Give you powerful "how-to" tips for a perfect phone interview
  • Get you invited to interview face-to-face

What kinds of tips are in this book?

  • Typical phone interview questions (and stand-out answers)
  • Tips to "cheat" in a phone interview to give yourself an unfair advantage
  • How to research the company and the interviewer before the call
  • What never to say in a phone interview
  • The one question you should ask in every phone interview
  • How to help them qualify you for the face-to-face interview
  • How to follow up after the interview
  • How to plan, prepare, and execute a perfect phone interview

Who this book is for: This book is for you if you want to slam-dunk every phone interview and get invited to the face-to-face. You will discover my best phone interview tips from 14 years of interviewing thousands of candidates (as a hiring manager and recruiter). Find out what hiring managers are really thinking about you. This is your key to phone interview success!

Concise and informational

I learned a lot from listening to this book while walking and driving, it is concise but useful things to know for any job seekers.

Longer than it needs to be

VERY repetitive. This could be cut down to 30 minutes total. 40 chapters could be cut down to 3. It's good stuff for first time phone interviews or good refreshers for those who haven't interviewed in a long time. I swear it says the same 37 things 10-12 times in different ways over and over and makes the read sooooooo long and is wasted time. At times i thought the pages had repeated in error. The speaker needs to do commercials or movie previews...not books.

very imformative!

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.

A good pep talk just before an interview

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.

Quick guide to get ready for a phone interview

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).
