Protecting your digital job search journey makes sense for many reasons. For example, if you are employed and you would like to keep a low profile then your tactics should be carefully planned. If you are unemployed don’t be tempted to reveal too much.
Suffice it to say people do miss many key points and steps that would make the phone interview and phone screening interview more productive: Key Research, Phone Base Setup with No Distractions, Questions to Ask the Interviewer, A Clear Follow Up Letter Strategy, Selected Behavioral Questions Readied and more. Other issues on phone screens that are coming to light now are Skype Interviews, Video Phone Screening and more. Phone screening now has a video element. Look out. It may not be here now to a great degree. Your industry may be next.
