Ace Your Next Phone Interview, Washington Post, 8/18/19

Increasingly phone interviews are becoming video conferences using Skype or Zoom. But there are still phone interviews. My son was recently interviewed for a job with a Federal agency and it was only by phone, and then he was offered the position (which he declined). So phone only is an option.

This piece in the 8/18/19 Washington Post by Kevin Dickinson offers some solid advice for preparing for a phone only interview.
