November 14, 2008, Newsletter Issue #142: Listen Carefully

Tip of the Week

Often, you can tell a lot about a person from a simple phone call. The same goes for potential roommates. As such, it makes sense to screen potential roomates by phone before you meet with them in person.

Prepare a list of questions to ask potential roommates and keep your list by the phone as you set up interviews. Pay attention to voice tones and your first impression of the person on the line. If you don't feel comfortable with the person on the phone, don't bother setting up a face-to-face meeting.
