It’s GroundHogs Day and Phil has seen his shadow. That means there’s good news and bad news…

The Good News: You still have time to find your next Workamping Job!

Spruce up your resume and check the hotline. Send those babies out and when the employer calls, be ready for an interview. I know. I know! The thought of doing all those phone interviews can sometimes be a drag, but here are 10 tips on how to Nail Your Phone Interview Every Time!

10 Tips to Nail Your Phone Interview:

1. Keep your resume in clear view - on the top of your desk or tape it to the wall near the phone - so it’s at your fingertips when you need to answer questions.

2. Have a pen and paper handy for note taking.

3. Turn call-waiting off so your call isn’t interrupted.

4. If the time isn’t convenient, ask if you could talk at another time and suggest some alternatives.

5. Clear the room - evict others and the pets. Turn off the stereo and the TV. Close the door.

6. Unless you’re sure your cell phone service is going to be perfect, consider using a landline rather than your cell phone to avoid a dropped call or static on the line.

7. Don’t smoke, chew gum, eat, or drink. But do keep a glass of water handy, in case you need to wet your mouth.

8. Smile. Smiling will project a positive image to the listener and will change the tone of your voice.

9. Speak slowly and enunciate clearly.

10. Take your time - it’s perfectly acceptable to take a moment or two to collect your thoughts.
