  • One important thing - NEVER APPEAR busy. It can irritate the interviewer
  • If the caller is late by a few minutes dont show your frustration. Really - they are busier than u think :!:
  • Talk to the point - avoid beating round the bush
  • Ask what the next follow-up action from your end should be, dont keep pestering them by calling them each time and asking for the update
  • Remember to get the email address of the person at the end of the conversation - always follow-up first through emails
  • Be well prepared for questions that you know you will be asked
  • chose a calm place for you to sit / walk and talk. - I have had this bad experience when I was staring at a beautiful piece of art work while being tele-interviewed, that I almost missed on certain key points and sounded less interested.
  • Avoid having people around you - you see, u never know if they have noticed you or not...some people just walk up to you while you are on a call, and try asking you things that can be answered anyother time... or probably wait dutifully in front of you, till you are done wit that call.

Dear Anu,
You take the advice of Mr Ravi
I think you are very used to with Hindi, start speaking in english with your friends and relatives, so that you can get practiced with much more fluency, I hope this will help you out...
All the best for the next interview

The main problems faced by many interviwees is,during the telephonic they tend get nervous due to which many words comes out unevenly.
Just relax and be ur-self and face the interview with a positive attitude.
Believe me it works wonders.

Best regards,

Dear All,
It is quite obivoius that we get nerveous whenever we attend an intervierw either telephonic, face to face or through video conference.
we should not get nervous , the only thing i could suggest is just think 7 keep telling your self that if the job / selection is important for me then i am equally important for the employer.its is a mutual relationship.
Your thoughts .............

Hi Aarna,
For face to face interview, i would suggest you to maintain eye contact, sit comfortable liitle bit leaning towards the interviewer, and alawys speak the truth. even if you lie to the interviewer your face will or the eyes will always mention that .
Dont look up towards the ceiling when you dont know the answer or if you are thiniking about an answer.
Hope this will help you
