No matter how wrong it is, employers can use phone interviews to eliminate underrepresented candidates before they even set foot in the door for an in-person interview. But being adequately prepared can help you get past any biases.
Telephone interviews are an inexpensive and quick way for employers to screen prospective job candidates. Generally speaking, employers use phone interviews to verify that a candidate's personal information, qualifications and skill sets in his/her curriculum vitae is correct, accurate and consistent with what employers may have learned about an applicant online. Another use of phone interviews is to determine whether or not a job candidate has the requisite oral communications skills required to perform the job that he/she applied for. Finally, and perhaps more nefariously, telephone interviews can allow employers to garner insight into a job candidate's race, ethnicity or national origin (this can easily be discerned by accents, speech patterns and colloquial use of English) and immigration status.
