I have a phone interview tomorrow. What can I do to succeed?

I have a phone interview tomorrow for a position at a university and I'm looking for some advice. What is the best way to prepare for a phone interview? What are recruiters generally looking to get out of phone interviews? What are some things I should and should not talk about? I know some of these are probably pretty obvious, but your tips are appreciated. Thanks!

I want to be a fundraiser, but I don't know how...

I want to transition out of the world of marketing into a career in development/nonprofit fundraising. I have dusted off my resume and have started applying for annual fund jobs, and I've scored a phone interview early this upcoming week. Please give me a crash course into the world of development/nonprofit fundraising and help me not screw this up! [more inside]

Thanks for not asking about my biggest weakness...

Group-phone-interview thank-you protocol: I had a 15-minute phone interview for a job I'm still very interested in. Five people interviewed me; each asked 1-2 questions. I have everyone's e-mail address. Can I just send one e-mail that says "Dear A, B, C, D, and E," to everyone, thanking them for their time and reiterating why I'd be a good candidate, and be done with it? Or do I have to send five individual e-mails? Most of the questions were so generic ("Where do you see yourself in 3-5 years?" OH GOD) that I don't have much to add to what I already said and I don't remember who asked what.

Unexpected Phone Interview!

Posting for a friend, who writes: I am currently an academic with a humanities PhD, doing the whole adjunct thing. I have been pursuing non-academic careers for a while, and things might finally be starting to pay off in the form of a phone interview. Trouble is, I haven't had an interview for anything in ten years. [more inside]
