Paul sees a telephone screen as an opportunity for you to proactively sell yourself. In using the telephone to either ace an interview or be proactive in job searching, it is important to do your homework first; research the company and interviewer to understand what they are looking for, and also know your value proposition to market yourself as a candidate for the job. For the phone interview, enter the conversation with an objective in mind and sell yourself. Paul also reminds interviewees to engage the interviewer by asking similar questions back, and therefore develop a more personal connection. Similarly, initiate a phone call after sending in a resume to develop a personal relationship, giving you a competitive edge.
