Phone interviews are really phone "screens". Employers use them to weed out candidates and come up with a short list of people to interview face-to-face.

  • Give you exceptional answers to common phone interview questions
  • Warn you about phone interview mistakes that get you screened out

helpful

Helpful and straightforward with great narration. thanks for this. can't believe I used to just "wing it". update, I have gotten multiple in-person interviews and multiple offers from using Peggy Mckees interview books. as another person said, I actually do have answers they are looking for. I feel competent and confident after listening to her books and I recommend this book as well as interview questions 101 part 1 and 2 as well as networking effectively. she has other books, I just prefer to buy ones that are at least an hour.

Very repetitive

I found this to be extremely repetitive. could have finished in half the time if they didn't repeat everything.

Longer than it needs to be

VERY repetitive. This could be cut down to 30 minutes total. 40 chapters could be cut down to 3. It's good stuff for first time phone interviews or good refreshers for those who haven't interviewed in a long time. I swear it says the same 37 things 10-12 times in different ways over and over and makes the read sooooooo long and is wasted time. At times i thought the pages had repeated in error. The speaker needs to do commercials or movie previews...not books.

very imformative!

I have been through many phone interviews and wasn't very knowledgeable about them and always left wondering what I could have done for them in preparation beforehand. After this book my eyes are wide open and my checklist is ready. I believe I will be moving forward into the next step of landing a job.

A good pep talk just before an interview

The headline for this review more or less sums things up. I would recommend listening to this in the day or so leading up to a phone interview. It is like a pep talk from an enthusiastic and informed friend. There is nothing particularly earth shattering in the recommendations but it is surprising how often they are not followed by prospective interviewees. If nothing else, it acts as a check-list that you are properly prepared.

Quick guide to get ready for a phone interview

This is a short and simple book that covers the basic preparation steps and typical questions in a phone interview. It could have used some more sample answers for the difficult questions, such as "what salary are you expecting" (instead of trying to push off the question until they make a hiring decision or turning the question around and asking them what is the salary range for the job).
