Your Best Call: Acing Your Physician Phone Interview

Part of a physician job search, even for locum tenens jobs, may involve long-distance interviewing by phone. Whether you are talking to physician executive recruiters or interviewing for a clinical position, you'll ace the interview if you give it the same attention you would to an in-person meeting.

Don't fear the phone—just keep these points in mind, and you'll be on your way to your next job:

  • Do your homework: Find out about the facility and have two or three intelligent questions prepared.
  • Show your manners: Unless you are told otherwise, address your interviewer by title and last name (Dr. Smith, for example).
  • Keep it straight: Don't lie in bed or slouch in a chair. Stand, or sit at a table.
  • Project confidence: Speak clearly, and smile—it makes your voice sound more pleasant.
  • Follow up: After the interview, send a follow-up letter or e-mail thanking your interviewer.

To help you find those interview opportunities that meet your career goals, talk to a physician staffing consultant who can identify full-time and locum tenens jobs in your specialty.
