When you are going in for the phone interview, that doesn’t change the amount you have to prepare. Actually you can’t use the energy of the room or your in person charisma on the phone; you have got to be even more prepared. Here are 5 tips for nailing a phone interview.

Tips for Nailing a Phone Interview
Source: Free Digital Photos

Prepare: Just because you are on the phone doesn’t excuse you from preparation. You need to know what this job is for, what it’s all about, and how you fit in. If you can’t convince someone that you are the best person for a job on the phone you are never going to be able to land this job in person.

Extraneous: Get all the noises out of your sphere. If this call is on your cell, don’t answer any other calls coming in. If you have any other distractions like TV, computers, music, roommates, or anyone else in the house, make sure those distractions don’t bother you for the whole of the interview.

Concise: Someone who’s conducting a phone interview obviously doesn’t have a lot of time. So make sure not to get too long-winded. The shorter the better for your answers so long as the questions are answered fully.

Invisible: You are invisible so use this fact to your advantage. Make sure to have any potential info about this job handy so you can easily access it if there’s something that you’re unsure of. Another thing you can also do in such an instance is just be honest; saying you don’t know the answer to a question but you’d like to learn shows your ability to glean knowledge.

Follow Up: Finally follow up with your phone interview. Send an email thanking the person for their time soon after!

    Derma Veil ® 被喻為新世代逆齡完美輪廓塑造,最新一代的PLLA膠原。 2003年獲得Mexican Ministry of Health (SSA)認證及美國FDA出口認證,並於2006年在拉丁美洲及遠東至東南亞地區廣泛使用,多個臨床實例見證能改善老化、遺傳、疾病(如脂肪萎縮)等引起的凹陷問題,其效果備受認同。蘊含兩大活性成分均具有生物兼容性及分解性,可逐步被人體自然分解吸收,有效塑造童顏肌 : 1. 聚左乳酸 (Poly-L-lactic acid / PLLA) : 促進骨膠原生長 2. 甘醇酸(Glycolic Acid ) 使皮膚表皮層黏膠性脂質鬆軟,改善皮膚厚度,加速細胞再生,減少皺紋及疤痕,加強保濕功能,增加光澤,美白效果。 由於甘醇酸分子較小,容易滲透皮膚 治療前: 皮膚的凹陷/皺紋 治療後: 成分被人體吸收、並刺激膠原增生,撫平皺紋及凹陷部位。 注入BOTOX(保妥適)會抑制突觸前膜釋放神經遞質,阻斷乙酰膽鹼(Acetylcholine)的釋放,從而使肌肉張力下降或癱瘓麻痺,皺紋也隨之而逐漸消失。 https://skinac.com/tag/抗落髮
