If you are going to apply for a job ,be prepared for the kinds of interviews you can expect .One type of interviews is the telephone interview. Here are some tips for telephone interviews:______________. Before the interview ,guess and write down the questions you might be asked.

Keep your notes . Have any key information next to the phone, including your notes about the company and the questions you have prepared for. Then you can easily get the information you need. In this way, you will sound more prepared.
Avoid salary topics. When you are asked how much money you would expect, it’s not wise if you give no response. But it’s not right to give an exact number at once.

If possible I’d be really happy to see some of your managers. I am free either Tuesday afternoon or Wednesday morning. Which would be better for you?”

Have you ever been in a meeting and suddenly found that your mind was a million miles away while someone was making a speech? You probably felt and made up your mind to pay attention and never daydream again. Most of us, from the earliest school days, have been told that daydreaming is a waste of time. “On the contrary,” says an expert in psychology, “daydreaming is quite all the thinking it has to do in daily life. You can’t possibly do all your thinking with a conscious mind. , your unconscious mind is working out problems all the time. The unconscious and conscious states of mind have a silent dialogue in the way of daydreaming.”
Early experts in psychology paid no attention to the of daydreaming, and even considered it harmful. They did not have a better understanding of daydreams until the late 1980s. Eric Klinger, a professor of psychology, is the writer of the book Daydreaming. Klinger says, “Now we know that daydreaming is one of the main ways that we organize our lives, our experiences and plan for future.” Daydreams really show the things we fear and the things we desire in life.
Daydreams are usually very simple and direct while sleep dreams may be hard to understand. It’s easier to gain a deep understanding of your life by paying close attention to your daydreams than by studying your sleep dreams Daydreams help one recognize the difficult situation in life and find out a possible way for dealing with them.
So next time you catch yourself daydreaming, don’t stop.
