Tips for Best Performance During a Telephone Interview

Nick Peters at PRSA-MD Media Training Event

(from Nick Peters’ Media Training presentation given 1/30/13)

Here are some quick tips from CommCore’s Nick Peters that could help you in your quest to conduct better phone interviews:

(1)    Stand Up

(2)    Get Away From Your Desk

(3)    Get a Headset

Most people are sitting down at their desk when giving a telephone interview.  But standing up and getting from behind your desk is more beneficial because you are more attentive and your brain is more active when you are standing up than when you are sitting down.  Wanting to use a headset will be the natural result of standing up and getting away from your desk.  It will allow clear, crisp transmission so you don’t lose sound quality on the call, and it will keep you hands free while you are formulating responses to those difficult questions coming your way.
