The phone interview is a gateway. The interviewer wants to know if you are someone they want to know. How do you get them to want to know you? Tell them a great story. The best story you can tell them is a story that sheds light on a certain aspect of growth in your career. If you can include a story about how you achieved results for someone, including yourself, then even better. A great story is relatable. It begins with a want and ends with a lesson, if you have time. Often, it’s enough that there’s room in a story for the audience to interpret the lesson. Stories of missteps can be great, because you can include how you came through, fixed a problem, made amends, dusted yourself after failure.
