Somehow, yesterday’s post about giving feedback to your interviewer has turned into a debate in the comments on whether it’s reasonable to advise candidates to use a land line for phone interviews.
In the past, I’ve been a firm advocate for using a land line when you’re doing a phone interview. The sound quality is often clearer and there’s way less risk of a dropped call. But I’m wondering how realistic this advice is these days, when so many people don’t have a land line at all.
Practically speaking, if you only have a cell phone, I’m not sure what your options would be. You might have no options.
Are those of us telling people they need to use a land line living in another time? (My hunch: Yes. I think I’m changing my position on this.)
