Phone Interviews

Phone interviews are becoming a lot more common these days, especially to act as preliminary screenings in early interview rounds. It may feel silly to dress up for an interview where you won't be seen, but Sara Sutton Fell, an expert in the online job market and CEO/founder of FlexJobs, recommends wearing professional clothing to put yourself in the career mindset. "Wearing business attire puts you in the right frame of mind, makes you sit up a little straighter and act a little more professional, and give a better interview," she says.

She adds, "Speaking of fit, regardless of industry or what you wear, fit is the key to looking your best." By Lauren Le Vine, REDBOOK.
