How to Know If You Had a Good Phone Interview?

1. Top 10 interview questions and answers 2017

2. Top 14 tips to prepare job interviews
Interviewing in person is really tough but having a phone interview is even tougher. Why? Because you can't see the interviewer's face to know how things are actually going. During an in person interview, you can pretty much read how things are going by just watching the expressions on the interviewer's face. Over the phone, they could be making all kinds of faces; they could be laughing; rolling their eyes - pretty much anything and you would never know.

So how do you know? Well, in my experience I can usually tell if it was a good phone interview just by the "tone" of the person on the other end of the phone. If they sound excited or happy and upbeat during the conversation, that's a good sign. On the negative, if you get the feeling that they are trying to pull things out of you, it means that you are not giving them the answers they are looking for.

During the interview, are you smiling? Believe me - it makes all of the difference because the interviewer can tell. Are you interrupting when they are speaking? You know how it is when you are talking to your best friend on the phone and they say something that reminds you of something you wanted to tell them? So you just jump in there so that you can get it out before you forget? Do NOT do this during a phone interview. Wait until they are finished speaking. If you are afraid you are going to forget, jot it down.

A phone interview works relatively the same way as an in-person interview. The interviewer will describe the position or ask if you read the job description and then you can discuss any questions about it. From there it usually goes into discussions about projects or the company where you get a chance to ask questions. The ultimate goal of this interview is to pass the first round and get scheduled for a face-to-face interview. For the interviewer, the phone interview is to find out if it's worth bringing you into the office for the next round.

How do I know if it was a good phone interview? If the interviewer is smiling or laughing and sounds very upbeat - I know I have at least one foot in the door! So, when you have a phone interview, truly listen and you will get a read on where the interviewer stands. If the conversation ends with the interviewer saying something like "thank you for your time" and then ends it - it probably wasn't a good interview. If they indicate that they will follow up with you - GOOD JOB!
