No Experience Necessary
Question by bluejordann: I have to travel for an interview out of state?
I am from minneapolis, minnesota applying for jobs in tucson, arizona.
When selected for an interview, how might I convey to the employer that I need a phone interview, or somehow to learn more about me; to see if i would really be a successful candidate? I don’t want to pay for airfare for an interview when I may not get the job. I just don’t want the trip to be a wasted one.

First- congrats on getting the interview because they like your skills and believe you have something to offer.
Second- ask them what their procedures are for the interview. Will the interview require a 2nd interview, 3rd, or subsequent interview? Remember you deserve the best of conditions possible, but they control the conditions of the interview. Remember you applied for a position they offered.
Third- I think a phone interview for the first time is appropriate to inquiry, but you need to know what the process before you ask.
I wish you could help me find something because I am struggling miserably, so I am glad one of us has an interview.
