If you plan on getting a job, chances are you'll need to be interviewed at some point. Most interviews will take place face-to-face, but an initial interview or an interview for a position a long distance from you may take place over the phone instead.

Elaborate on your answers, really listen to what the interviewer is saying, and thank the interviewer for his or her time. Be aware of your posture, as well.
