You dont get a second chance to make a first impression…
OUR EMPLOYERS ARE REMOTE…Most interviews are conducted over the telephone at a time suitable to both parties.
This is the reason we request a photo to enable the employer to know who they are speaking with.
When the employer contacts you for a phone interview, ensure you are in a quiet place with limited background noise.
Make sure if you are on a mobile that your phone has good coverage and is fully charged.
Do not consume food or drinks during the call and definately no smoking during the call…All of these sound effects can be clearly heard on the other end of the call.
Ensure you have a list of questions ready to ask the employer. Questions should include duties of the role, confirm the pay rate, ask about the property and ask about approximate costs for getting there. (Most of this information will be provided to you when you consider the role)
When wrapping up your interview, be sure to thank the employer for their time and ask when you will expect to hear back from them.
Finally, be sure to ring your recruitment consultant and let them know how the interview went as they will also follow up the employer.
