Many employers screen job candidates through a phone interview. It is every bit as important to prepare for this interview as it is to prepare for a face-to-face interview. A student who recently made it through the phone interview, and has a face-to-face coming up, did some preparation ahead of the phone interview because he suspected one of the first questions would include “Tell me a little bit about yourself.” He wanted to make sure he answered that question correctly, so he sought advice and then practiced possible responses. (Note: employers want to know a little bit about you in relation to the job for which you are applying, not about your life history.)
