I'm in the midst of a major career change, trying moving from academia to an industry tangentially linked to my area of study. I have a phone interview lined up in a few days for what sounds like a potentially awesome job. The problem is, though, I'm pretty terrible at phone interviews. Without any visual cues that let me know to shut up, I tend to talk way too much. I also tend to fill silences when I'm nervous.
I'm preparing a cheat sheet with answers to questions they're likely to ask, and I'll have the company website open for extra backup. What other advice do you have? How does one ace a phone interview?
