How do you handle an unexpected FaceTime call with a recruiter?

I was recently asked: “For my interview, the recruiter set up a phone call. I was prepared to answer all her questions but instead of calling, she FaceTimes me instead. I was not expecting it and my hair was a mess and I was wearing a rock concert t-shirt. What should I do if it happens again?”

 

My answer is simple, if someone FaceTimes you and you weren’t expecting it…don’t answer. Call them back directly and tell them you are sorry but are not able to FaceTime at this moment and need to just make it a phone call. Let them know that you will be happy to set up FaceTime for the next discussion. Remember, always be prepared and stay in control of the job search process.
