Just got a request for a phone interview (I’ve never done a phone interview. Are they scary?) for a job application I sent out a mere 5 hours ago. Eek. And also yay. If I do say so myself, that cover letter kicked ass. I take back all the cursing I did at the online application system. So, a little progress made.

    I’ve done them before. Not too scary just prepare as best you can. Remember why you want that job and then relax. You can wear pajamas at a phone interview. Best of luck!!

    Yay! Yes, relax. But also, wear something that makes you feel confident. If that’s pajamas, more power to you.

    Phone interviews are not scary. You’re smart, you’ll be in a comfortable surrounding, and as Julia said, you can do it in your jim-jams!

    I agree that they aren’t scary. I also think that they are a smart idea for everyone so they don’t have to make you come to their office until they are sure that they are interested.

    I love phone interviews, for the reason the Lass said. You can do them very comfortably, unlike when I wear a suit and tie and sweat through it all in 5 minutes.

    I am sure you’ll be great. Are you looking all over the place? I think Mr. Spy is mobile, correct?

    Yes, congrats!!! I’ve done them before. The first ones were a bit nerve-racking, but like all interviews, you get better at them! (I did my last one with a glass of wine in my hand.) They are a great idea to let both parties know if it is worth a more formal interview at a later stage. Just keep remembering that this is the purpose. I’m also certain you’ll be just fine!

    Thanks all! It went okay, I think. More soon.
