The 10 Worst Job-Search Tips Ever

The 10 Worst Job-Search Tips Ever

Liz Ryan, BusinessWeek

Don’t Ever Postpone a Phone Screen Call

A very bad bit of job-search advice says “Whatever you do, don’t ever miss a phone screen! Even if you’re in the shower or or on your way to be the best man at your brother’s wedding, make time for that phone interview!” This is good advice is your job-search philosophy emphasizes groveling. I don’t recommend this approach. Let the would-be phone-screener know that you’re tied up at the moment but would be happy to speak at 7 p.m. on Thursday night, or some other convenient time. Lock in the time during that first call, but don’t contort your life to fit the screener’s schedule.
