Three Types of Telephone Interviews

There are three basic types of telephone interviews:

  1. You initiate a call to the Hiring Manager and he or she is interested in your background. The call from that point forward is an interview.
  2. A company calls you based upon a previous contact. You will likely be unprepared for the call, but it is still an interview.
  3. You have a preset time with a company representative to speak further on the phone. Also an interview.
