Some of my friends have been giving repeated telephonic interviews without any job offer in sight. Today, one of them told me that he had 4 telephonic interviews before being told that his resume doesn’t match the job description. Many interviews seem to have no purpose. This can be frustrating if you think that performance in an interview reflects your real competence, so instead of demeaning yourself consider my alternate hypothesis:

Telephonic interviews are not meant to test how good you’re for the job–you’re brilliant, they instead, form a platform the company gives its employees to improve their interviewing skills.
