Phone Interview WHILE abroad

I am currently studying abroad and have been selected for a phone interview with a Non-Profit AM firm. I tried searching for this topic but I didn't find anything...

Obviously it is very expensive to have a 30 minute phone interview, so will the company pay for the call? Should I just give them my overseas cell phone number?

Arranging phone informational interviews while abroad? (Originally Posted: 10/12/2012)

Hey guys,

I'm currently studying abroad but plan on sending lots of emails to alumni in hopes of arranging informational interviews over the phone. What would be the best way to arrange this? Calls to numbers outside of your country are expensive, but Skype seems a bit unprofessional..

Use Google Voice and call for free. Log in to your gmail and install the add-on. It's free for Canadian & US numbers.

Thanks. Should I give them my Google Voice number or should I call them every time?

Also, I am also planning to make several calls to Hong Kong (I am not in HK now). What would be the best way to go about that?
