As you conduct your job search, you may be asked to participate in telephone or group interviews. Administrators who need to find qualified candidates while containing recruitment travel costs often use telephone interviews. Likewise, group interviews offer a very efficient use of time. Four people interviewing a candidate for an hour is much more efficient than four individual one-hour meetings. Similarly, a five-person team can interview three candidates simultaneously, saving literally days of time. Here are some tips for handling these situations.
Bonus tip: Immediately after any interview, write down points you want to reinforce. Then write your thank you letter!
