Are phone interviews becoming the norm?
I left my job two months ago.

Have been applying like crazy through usajobs....

so little were referred to a hiring official....

I had a phone interview about one month ago... Never heard back after that...

And now I have another phone interview next week, with a different employer...

I have never had phone interviews before....

I don't like phone interviews at all.


Is this becoming the norm?

Re: Are phone interviews becoming the norm?
Yes, it's the norm for corporate and government employment. It's just another level of screening before they invest face time into a real interview. What industry are you looking for work in? It's more common in some than others.

normally they get the computer to interview you first before they let you through to the phone stage ...

Your voice is analysed for stuff.
They can tell by the voice... just like handwriting.

It's to try and get rid of the people who lied on their application or who aren't really interested in the job.

It's a "let me talk to this asshole before I met his/her sorry ass" phone interview.

Perfectly normal.

I forgot about that,
I think it's known as voice stress analysis.
