Urgent advice needed! - April 15th 2010, 12:33 PM

I have a telephone interview in half an hour! And I'm so nervous. I'm terrible at talking on the phone, I stutted and mess up all my words. It should only take about half hour, but I'm still really anxious about it.

Can anyone offer any advice?

Thanks!

Have a glass of wine! It will calm you down and make you more confident =p
But just relax about it x.x perhaps dress you phone up so it looks like a real person and put it on load speaker? =p

But seriously don't worry about it, if you stutter or anything say sorry and blame it on a bad line =p It'll probably get easier as it goes along as well. And on the positive side, they can't see you pick your nose over the phone =p

LOL, Keady

Sorry, the dressing up your phone suggestion made me laugh. I wouldn't have thought that up. Nice. It'll keep you amused

Just remember though that the person who is interviewing you can't see you. I don't know why but that makes me feel better. I find that face-to-face situations turn out to be more awkward and stressful because there are more things to worry and stress about. It's alright if you stutter. They'll understand that you're nervous

Just do your best! Keady's right about it getting easier as it goes along. You'll start to relax gradually. Just try not to think about it as something to stress about.

Good luck
