To return these physician job telephone interview calls try to go in a quiet room. If you accidentally find yourself at a noisy nurse station, then excuse yourself and offer to call them back right away from a different phone in a quieter place.
Speak slowly and clearly. Do not get nervous and speak fast.
Small talk is a must. Just like you do everyday. ‘How are you’s and ‘thank you(s)’ are to be exchanged as usual.
Answer all questions succinctly. Do not ramble on to prove your point.
Keep ‘ah’, ‘umm’, ‘hmm’ and other fillers to the minimum.
Avoid long pauses
SMILE! Even though the other person cannot see you he or she can feel it. It projects your image as confident and easy to get along with.
