This is the last of six steps to acing your phone interview and often the most difficult. Let any silence during conversation just be there.
- This is tough to do when you’re on the phone. However, being comfortable with brief silences will keep you from saying things you haven’t practiced and really don’t want to say.
- When you do break the silence, ask if the interviewer wants you to expand on anything. If not, ask an appropriate follow-on question.
