Telephone Interview Frequently Asked Questions


The following is a list of the more common questions we get asked about telephone interviews, and more importantly, how you can increase your chances of success!

How long will my phone interview last for?

Unless specifically told otherwise, your telephone interview will last for approximately 20-minutes.

What is the purpose of the phone interview?

The main purpose of a phone interview is to see whether or not the employer wants to invite you along to a face-to-face interview. In truth, a phone interview is essentially a screening interview or ‘filtering’ process to eliminate those applicants who are not suited to the role based on their skills, qualities and experience.

What type of screening interview questions will I get asked?

Generally, the phone interview process will involve you will getting asked motivational and behavioral interview questions, such as: “Tell me about yourself”, “What skills and experience do you have that are a match for the role”, “Tell me what you know about our company?”, “What are your strengths/weaknesses?”, and also “Tell me about a time when you worked as part of a team?”. These are just some of the phone interview questions you will get asked.

What advice do you have for anyone preparing for a phone interview?

Our advice is to concentrate on RESEARCHING the role and company you are applying to join. You should also prepare your answers to the common phone interview questions listed on this page. These are pretty much guaranteed to feature during your phone interview!

What’s the difference between someone who passes a telephone interview and someone who fails?

In a nutshell, preparation! You see, most candidates do little or no preparation for phone interview questions, simply because they don’t take it seriously enough. Although it is not a face-to-face interview, you should still take it very seriously and prepare your answers properly! There is also nothing to stop you from having notes with you during the telephone interview, which is even more reason to download a copy of our questions and answers direct from this page!

5 TIPS FOR PASSING A TELEPHONE INTERVIEW!

TIP #1 – During any telephone interview it is vital you speak with clarity. Remember, the interviewer cannot see you, and on that basis, how you respond to the questions is even more important. Make sure your answers to the telephone interview questions are concise, punchy and structured well.

Tip #2 – The good news is, telephone interviews are essentailly screening interviews or in other words, a filtering process, and they are used to see which candidates the employer wants to invite along to the second, face-to-face interview. On that basis, your answers to common phone interview questions do not need to be as in-depth as normal interviews. Keep your answers relatively short, but loaded with positive keywords and phrases that are a match for the role you are applying for.

Tip #3 – The type of phone interview questions you will get asked should be based largely on your motivations for wanting the job, and also the skills and attributes you can bring to the role. Focus your preparation on those key areas and you will have a far better chance of succeeding.

Tip #4 – One of the best phone interview tips is to make sure you carry out some research about the company you are being interviewed to join. Your research should focus on what you know about the role, and also what you know about their products, service and their plans for the future.

Tip #5 – The telephone interview will normally last for approximately 20-minutes, so make sure you have enough to talk about during that time and also what you can specifically bring to the role!
