When you’re job searching, it’s important to be prepared for a phone interview at very short notice. Many businesses and recruiters start the process with a phone call to discuss the job opportunity and determine whether you would be a good fit, and to gauge your interest in the position.
Quite often, a phone call may come out of the blue and so it is imperative to answer the phone professionally, especially if the number is an unfamiliar one. If you are unable to have a detailed conversation at that time, politely take the details of the caller and arrange a suitable time to pick the conversation back up. Most importantly, always call back or answer your phone at said time!
