Phone Interview

The interview process is a major part of any job search.  It’s easy to get caught up thinking about what to wear, how to respond to questions, and what kinds of behaviors to avoid when you meet your potential employer face to face.  However, before you even get to the in-person interview, you likely will have at least one phone interview with a recruiter, HR manager, or hiring manager—if not all three.
