Are you killing two birds with one stone, or are you killing your chances of landing a job by multi-tasking?

Multi-tasking is a bad thing especially when you are on a phone interview! Most of you are reading this and thinking, well of course that is not a good thing; but you would be surprised by the number of people who do not know this simple fact. To many, multi-tasking is a way to be productive, “kill two birds with one stone”, and manage your time…. But when you are trying to land a job, multi-tasking while on a phone interview can be the stone that kills your chances of landing a face-to-face interview.

Moral of the story, if you are on a phone interview make sure you pull over if you are driving, shut out any other noise that may come up, DON’T type on the computer or shuffle through papers and keep focused on the task at hand… landing a face-to-face interview.

Save those multi-tasking skills for when you get the job!
