Ideas for Acing a Phone Interview

Valiant Marketing Group is a growing company, so we expand our team on a regular basis. We stay on top of the latest hiring trends to ensure that we recruit high-level professionals. Our research has brought us to the fact that remote work arrangements are growing in popularity, which gives business leaders freedom to hire the brightest talent on the globe. They are no longer limited to their immediate regions.

With this trend comes the rising popularity of phone interviewing. Contrary to what many people may think, phone interviews are no easier than face-to-face conversations. Sometimes they are even more complicated. If you have such a meeting scheduled, it will help to take some notes prior to the big day. Write down information about the company’s history, values, mission, and pain points. Also keep a list of your achievements and abilities. This way, the details you need will be right at your fingertips as you answer questions. Just be sure not to read from them directly so that you don’t sound robotic.

Through the Valiant Marketing Group training program, we study body language. We’ve learned about the power of smiling, which remains influential even when others aren’t there to witness it. If you smile while you are on the phone, your tone will become more energetic. It will also help you relax, compounding the positive effects.
