Don’t be in the car. Don’t be around animals. Don’t be around screaming babies. Make sure your phone is charged. Focus on enunciating, speaking clearly, and not rushing your speech. Smile – people can tell when you smile on the phone. You want to sound professional, and be in an area that won’t result in distracting noises. No one wants to hear a dog bark when you’re on a phone interview.
