I prep by reading Get Hired Fast. The questions are going to be fast and furious. I may not know the answers, but all I need to be is prepared and honest. O– calls. This is the first phone interview of my post-master’s degree job search.
He calls unexpectedly early. Is he trying to throw me off my game?
No! He is totally nice! At one point he asks if I will mind working for someone who sometimes stumbles over his words. I will not! I said that he just made me feel comfortable, but what I really wanted to say is: “I stumble over my words too! That’s why I was so nervous about this phone interview!” It didn’t work out, because I don’t have all the experience he is looking for, (he might be able to use me on another project.) But my first (I have two more) phone interview of the day went well.
