After you apply to a job, you may have one of several types of exchanges with your future employer: first contact (verbal or by email), an appointment or a phone interview. There are many critical moments when you need to pay attention.
Take careful note of the information provided to you during the conversation. This is the time to ask a few questions about:
If you happen to be in a noisy place when you receive a call, explain the situation. Ask if you can reschedule the call for later that day.
The first interview you have might be conducted over the phone. You may not have agreed to this in advance. This is the first stage of recruitment during which the employer is deciding whether to meet with you.
Please note! Lately, these calls have been lasting longer and longer. You should therefore prepare for a call as though you were meeting with the recruiter. See the page Getting Ready for a Successful Interview.
Career Management Services offers many individual services and workshops to help you prepare your job interviews.
