Advice and tips on a phone interview with a recruiter?


I graduated in May and this is the first interview I'm going to have. The interview is with a recruiter. If I pass the interview with the recruiter I will then have an interview with the hiring manager.

What kind of questions should I expect from a recruiter? Should I write down a bunch of possible questions with answers? I feel like I might be tempted to read off of my paper if I do this. How would you prepare? My interview is on Tuesday so I have a full 2 days to prepare.

Thanks for any advice! I'm pretty nervous since this is all new to me.

I'm sorry I only just saw this. By now you will have had your interview, for better or worse.

How did it go? Were the questions as you expected, or were there some curves?

Hope it went well and you get the job you want.

I have never come across this type of interview, it would be interesting to know some tips, nuances and questions
