How To Answer Your Phone

So, I covered phone interview tips before, but I'm going to add another one. How you answer the phone matters.

Our advice is simple: answer your phone by saying "Hello, this is (your name)". Of course, you can substitute "Hello..." with "Good morning..." or "Good afternoon".

The point is, you should not answer the phone with simple, "Hello." The problem is, you likely don't wait long enough to speak so all the calling person hears is, "Lo".

Remember to answer with a smile!
