Do telephone interviews make you nervous?
Is it because you have an accent that gets in the way of people understanding you?
One thing that scares the living daylights out of many of my clients from overseas, is the dreaded Australian telephone interview.
You can have researched the role, scrutinized the company and tailored your CV to the finest degree.
However the truth is, that when someone picks up the telephone to interview you, you’re pretty much back to square one.
You need to sell yourself, all over again.
So I’d like to introduce you to someone who can help with reducing your accent, sounding like an Australian and mastering the telephone interview.
