  15. 15. The Phone Interview The Secret A major advantage one has during the phone interview is not being seen and we must use this to our advantage. Have all materials on ourselves and employers in front of us on the desk while speaking on the phone and not just our resume, but a “cheat sheet” about compelling stories, accomplishments, and topics one would like to bring up. This portrays a well-informed, well-prepared interviewee. Keep in mind that this preparation is not “cheating” at all. It is preparation, pure and simple. So have Materials open and available when preparing for a phone interview. They are there to support and enhance your value to the employer who will greatly respect your ability to answer questions with focus and meaningful content LOGO
  16. 16. The Phone Interview The Secret – STAND UP. A simple technique to increase the enthusiasm and positive image that you project over the telephone is to simply stand up Whenever you are talking with a potential employer on the phone stand up, it gets the blood flowing, improves posture, and improves your response time An interesting note that many telemarketing companies realized that standing up actually improves sales. So often these companies provide there employees with hands-free headsets that allow them to stand and pace back and forth. It gives an action perspective to an otherwise passive activity LOGO
  17. 17. The Phone Interview The Secret – With Mirror. In preparing for a telephone interview, make sure that there is a mirror within view. Why? Because looking in the mirror consistently throughout the conversation will improve your telephone presence 110%. Just smiling will make one come off much friendlier, more interested, and more alert. The mirror gives us instant feedback necessary to make instant modification toward a more positive presence. Remember we’re standing, so a wall mirror usually works best! LOGO
