Definition of “Accredited,” according to Better Business Bureau.
“Businesses are under no obligation to seek BBB accreditation, and some businesses are not accredited because they have not sought BBB accreditation.
“To be accredited by BBB, a business must apply for accreditation and BBB must determine that the business meets BBB accreditation standards, which include a commitment to make a good faith effort to resolve any consumer complaints. BBB Accredited Businesses must pay a fee for accreditation review/monitoring and for support of BBB services to the public.”

Career Crossroad---“Need Tips for Telephone Interview”
I have a phone interview scheduled---Can you give me any tips?
Phone interviews, in reality, are sometimes more difficult than face-to-face interviews as it is difficult to “read” the interviewer’s reactions to your questions and answers.
The best way to prepare for the phone interview is to do your homework:
(1) Research the company
(2) Find out who will be in on the call and research, if you can, the background of the interviewer (s) to see if you have any commonalities e.g. previous employers
(3) make sure you understand the qualifications required for the role and be able to relate your background to each requirement
(4) Develop some questions regarding the company as whole and other job-specific questions – NEVER discuss salary unless the interviewer brings up the topic
(5) make sure you have your resume and job description in front of you during the interview
(6) After completion of the interview, ask about next steps (e.g. a face-to-face interview).
Most importantly, relax and make the phone interview a two-way conversation so your personality can shine through.
