Dear Experts, What do you do during a phone interview when your phone cuts out, then drops the call (twice)? It happened yesterday, and I am certain I didn't get the job, so how do you recover from that and save face? Of course, get a new phone or carrier, but beyond that? Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question: Q#217 Don't be so sure you didn't get job esp if you demo'd lrnging from dropped calls, apologized. (@juliaerickson) Q#217 This actually happened to me. I've learned never to take a phone interview on a cell phone. Always use a landline. (@gradversity) Q#217 Learn from the experience. Do calls from a land line in the future. (@DebraWheatman) Q#217 Call back from a line land, apologize, move on. Not a big deal.
