Hold The Phone Interview 2: Pick Up the Phone

If your looking for a new job, can you afford to screen your calls?

If your looking for a new job, can you afford to screen your calls? (Kiwanja)

I closed my  post yesterday on answering the phone properly while your searching for a job (Hold The Phone Interview: Be Nice to Callers) with a question:

Many try to let voice mail run some interference for them. Let the caller leave a message so you can call back armed with awareness and prepped to talk the talk. Does anyone have an opinion or well-baked philosophy on that strategy?

I also posed the question directly to Jane Turkewitz, a recruiter whose post, Prepping for the Phone Interview on the blog Let’s Talk Turkey, inspired my writing yesterday. She responded with an answer and a new post, Prepping for the Phone Interview – Part 2. I won’t steal Jane’s Web visitors, so please click here to read her advice.
