(Phone rings and interviewee picks up)
Interviewer: Hello? May I speak with Miss/Mr/Mrs X?
Now in a scenario like this, what should the interviewee say? Have been pondering over it all day. Some answers that I came up with:
"This is X." (Sounds mechanical and redundant, IMHO atleast.)
"Yes this is him/her." (Sounds weird.)
"Yes it is I." (Sounds too grammatical.)
"Yes?" (Sounds too busy.)
"Go on" (Sounds vengeful.)
"Who else do you think is on the line?" (Sounds rude.)
What is the general reaction here? I remember fumbling and grunting to tell that it was me they wanted to talk to, during a phone interview.
