Conducting phone interviews in the future? In order to uncover the right person for the job you need to be able to understand how a phone interview works. We created this ebook by watching our recruiter conduct phone interviews, our experiences as candidates getting a phone interview, and by talking to Hireology's I/O Psychologist.

This is what we found: Phone interviews should take about 30 minutes, the interviewer should only be talking 10% of the time, and always score your interview.
