Ace Your Phone Interviews for IT Jobs

When your IT recruiters and IT staffing agencies set up phone interviews for you, here are a few tips to keep in mind.  These will not only help leave a great impression on your interviewer, but also cement your reputation with your technical recruiters and IT recruiting firms.  If you do well in phone interviews, even if you don’t get the IT jobs, IT staffing firms and IT recruiting companies will want to keep working with you until they can place you.

  1. Be prepared.  Don’t wing it.  Don’t hope you’ll find a good place to take the call.  Prep for the call and have a place in mind that you can go to take the call in private with an uninterrupted connection.
  2. Don’t sit- stand.  Or better yet, pace a bit.  Walking around will keep your voice strong and probably help you think better.  Instead of relaxing, as you might when you sit, you’ll keep your blood flowing to your brain and stay more alert.
  3. Lastly, this is the time to show your interest in the role and company.  Ask thoughtful questions about the company, team, and role you’re interviewing for.  If you don’t, your interviewer will feel unsure of your interest level.  They may even relay a bad impression to your IT staffing companies and IT recruiting agencies.
