First Phone Interview

I have my first phone interveiw for this job at a local college as a Coordinator of Disability Services tomorrow. I have been a SAHM for four yrs and taking post graduate classes in PostSecondary Education. I am very nervous about his interview cause I really really want this job cause this position is a dream/passion of mine. What type of questions do interviewers ask doing a phone interview? Any pointers on scoring a in-person interview and this job....Thank you so very much.

I'm sorry that I haven't post much on this board, but I am a lurker tho.

Almost all interviews start with a phone interview these days. When DH was interviewing here is what he did:

1. Quiet room with no distractions
2. Get dressed, if you are in your jammies, you will sound like it
3. make note cards listing your strengths, and a couple of questions about the job
4. smile when you are talking, it will make your voice sound friendly

Good luck! I went back after almost 7 years and it was nerve wracking!

Thank you, Mrsv98. Hubby told me the same thing about getting dress up like I'm going to the actually interview. I love to smile while on the phone anyways; no problem with that.

I have no advice, I just wanted to wish you good luck.

I know how are you are feeling. This summer I interviewed for my dream job - middle school librarian. I was a nervous wreck because I wanted the job sooooo badly. Thankfully, it all worked out and I was offered the job. I hope everything works out for you.
