In the past, some employers used telephone or phone interviews to screen candidates to narrow the pool of applicants who will be invited for in-person interviews but given the changing situation & social distancing being the new norm, you can expect all companies to  conduct phone interviews, along with video interviews, to evaluate candidates.

With first impressions being extremely important, let’s accept there are  a lot of challenges to deal with.

  1. You do not have visual cues to know how your interviewers  are responding to your answers as you can’t see them
  2. You are constantly worried to avoid awkward silence or not to interrupt your interviewers and still have a conversation
  3. You can only use your language of voice to impress the interviewer as they can’t see you and your body language
