Phone Inteview Tomorrow - NEED ADVICE QUICK!

Phone Inteview Tomorrow - NEED ADVICE QUICK!
« on: August 27, 2008, 06:14:17 PM »
Hey people, so I just found out that I have a 30 minute screening interview tomorrow over the phone with a pretty large NYC firm.  I've had quite a few interviews, but I've never done any over the phone.  Any suggestions or advice?  Any ideas for good questions?

Smile when you're talking on the phone...

people can sense the upbeat attitude when you do that...

good luck!

I really hate them. 

Try to speak in well-defined paragraphs and clear pauses for them to interject so that you're not stepping all over each other.
