How To Pull Off The Dreaded Phone Interview

Dreaded Phone Interview
The dreaded phone interview is often the beginning of the hiring process for many companies. It may mark your first human interaction with the company you want to work for, so preparation is necessary. While not having to gear up and head to an interview in person may seem attractive, a phone interview brings its own challenges that you must overcome to reach the next stage in the hiring process.

This is a way to efficiently screen through large candidate pools, as the average job has over 250 applicants.
