With the consistent growth of MAG-City Marketing, we launch hiring initiatives on a regular basis. As we do so, we keep our eyes on what’s happening in the world of talent acquisition. We’ve maintained a keen awareness of the rise of remote work, and the freedom it gives business leaders to hire people located all over the world.
Breaking free from geographic limits has given way to the growing popularity of phone interviewing. At first blush, it may seem as if a challenging conversation would be better to have over the phone than in person. On the contrary, phone interviews are rather complicated. For instance, there’s no chance to communicate via body language.
If you are preparing for such a meeting, there are some ways you can make the most of it. Begin by writing down some specifics of the company, such as its mission, values, and history. While you’re at it, take note of the abilities and achievements you’d like to highlight. Refer to your documentation throughout the course of your conversation. Don’t read it word-for-word though – you don’t want to sound mechanical.
As we study the importance of body language in the MAG-City Marketing training program, we often focus on posture. We’ve learned that standing tall exudes confidence; it even comes through in tone of voice. For this reason, it’s a good idea to stand tall while talking on the phone.
