The grabber is a bridge from the question. For example, if you are asked, “Tell me about yourself,” you might respond “I’d be happy to.” If the question is “How is Project X coming along?” you might reply, “It’s on track.” If you are asked for quarterly results, the grabber would be that number.
Note that these grabbers respond to the question but do not provide a full answer. They bridge from the query and do so in a confident way.
Job interviews are an opportunity for employers to find whether you're a good match for them, but it is also your time to see if the role is a good fit for you.
When you are sure the answer is "no", you can simply back out, or you can see it as another networking opportunity. If you like the company, you'll want to maintain the relationship so that you can become the first choice in another role.
Phone interviews are efficient time savers for both the candidate and the employer.
Initially considered a screening round for the benefit of the employer, a phone interview also helps the candidate weed out any potential deal-breakers before investing time, money, energy and resources to give a personal face-to-face interview (wherever that is happening).
