Phone interviews are the order of the day, for the employers to screen out the bad ones before the one-to-one interviews or if they are hiring people from places other than their base stations. Generally people tend to get all nervous and pace up and down their living rooms during the interviews.
Here are a few tips that would come in handy for such situations
1. Stand in front of a mirror. Look at yourself while speaking into the phone. Looking at a person, though it is you yourself will remind you to smile and talk shooing away the nervousness.
2. You can stand up and take more space then usual while talking. This is called power-posing and will boost your confidence in any social situations.
3. These tips will also eliminate any sort of distraction so, another winning tip.
Never lose another job due to a poor phone interview.
