Before you get on the phone for your interview, check your environment, your surroundings. You don’t want anything to distract you.
- Close windows and doors.
- Mute all your electronic devices.
- Turn off fans, heaters, air conditioners.
- Let anyone nearby know you’re about to go behind closed doors and can’t be interrupted.
- Put a sign on your door: Keep Out!
