A couple of questions before I answer. Have you ever had any V&A training before? A lot of companies train their HR teams to listen for specific grammar and pronunciation warnings. You said your spoken issue is fine. Well then go for it. Don’t use the accent. Most companies will train you n V&A. You could also do mock interviews with friends using the accent so you can get more comfortable.
But be careful with the accent. Only use it if you have been trained on it. Remember a little knowledge can be more dangerous then no knowledge. Good luck!18th June 2006 at 16:28 #14537damn englishGuest
I reckon accent does matter when it comes to sell a product over telephone. I had a call from a call centre in india, the salesman’s accent wasn’t good enough and he pronounced “HURSTVILLE” as “hoorst” “vee” ” lee” rather it had to be pronounced as “hast” “will”. At that moment i felt like indian accent couldn’t be this bad. I think call centre jobs should be given to those aspirants who are having good accent. Believe me it makes a lot of difference when it comes down to selling a product overseas.27th September 2006 at 08:58 #14538KrystleGuest

Till such time you join an institute you could purchase a V/A training kit designed by Ann Cook that consists of a trgn module & 5 CD’s…. It costs Rs1850/- and is very useful…8th March 2007 at 16:39 #14542jitendra BarikGuest

1–remove hesitation it will get you on top
2–watch english channel and try to understand the words and it is not a one day affair you have to practice alot
4Try to talk with your friends in english on phone
5 Try to do mock calls in america or britain and try to talk with them and see that ur understanding their accent but do it occasionally it will cost around 20 to 30 rs
6 dont become nervous try to think
that there are thousand of companies not matter if they not selected you if not in this than in that. one thing you will gain that the problem where u r lacking
that is very valuable because the people who take the interview are very expert.17th April 2007 at 21:10 #14544ranjaniGuest
