When an Interviewer wants to Talk NOW

  • Be prepared with a response if you receive a call from an interviewer asking if you are available to talk immediately.
    • Handle the situation with enthusiasm, but buy yourself some time to prepare. It is reasonable to answer with something like, “I would very much like to speak with you about the internship position. May I call you back in 30 minutes? What number should I call?”
  • Buying yourself some time will give you some time to gather your notes, look over information about the company, and find a quiet place to conduct the interview.
