Do our homework beforehand, and be prepared to answer tough questions clearly and succinctly. Remember, this is a phone interview, so you can harness the power of a cheat sheet if you need it. The purpose of a phone interview is to get a peek into your personality, beyond your resume and cover letter. Common questions you should contemplate and have answers for, as a good base:
- Tell me a little about yourself?
- Why this company?
- What made you apply for this position?
- Where are you currently employed, and since when?
- What are your goals for the future?
- Why should we hire you?
