    I am away for the majority of November, and this is when the majority of grad programmes schedule their phone/video interviews.

    Video interviews wont be a problem as I will have my laptop with me, but will it matter if I take a phone interview and I'm in another country? As surely it will cost the company money?

    Thanks!

    Doubt it if you do it via skype.

    I don't think they care about that cost lol I had some phone interviews from the HQ that was in another country.

    If they give you a phone interview, just let them know you'll be away and give them a number to contact you on or ask to reschedule for when you're back.

    They don't care. The person doing the phone interview isn't going to be paying the phone bill. It is not much money at all. Big companies make international calls all the time.
