Recovering from Dropped Call During Phone Interview?


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. (@AskAManager)
