Chapter 2. Types of Interviews > Telephone Interviews

Telephone Interviews

Occasionally a recruiter conducts an interview by telephone. Two common situations in which this occurs: when a national company is hiring for a regional office or when the applicant is being recruited from another city and can’t leave home for an interview. Rather than fly across the country, the recruiter arranges to meet the applicant on the telephone.

Telephone interviews are not the optimum method of interviewing for either party. For example, the applicant has no opportunity to display personality traits through dress and body language. It’s difficult for some people to convey their personal flair through a phone conversation.
