Tips for interview
TIPS FOR INTERVIEW:-
Campus interviews are something which different candidates look forward with various outlook, Even the smartest and most qualified job seekers need to prepare for job interviews. Why, you ask? Interviewing is a learned skill, and there are no second chances to make a great first impression, here are some strategies to enhance an interview skill:-
- KNOW YOURSELF: - No one knows you, better than YOU yourself, so keep your plusses and minuses well in mind, and stick to your plusses, keep your resume short, and to the point.
Practice non-verbal communication:It's about demonstrating confidence: standing straight, making eye contact and connecting with a firm handshake. That first nonverbal impression can be a great beginning, or quick ending to your interview.
- Presence of mind: - The interviewer often doesn’t stick to check your subject knowledge, they may check your stand towards various other issues, so keep yourself abreast with current affairs and make a stand.
- Dress code for an interview: - It is important to know what to wear to an interview and to be well-groomed. Whether you wear a suit or something less formal depends on the company culture and the position you are seeking. If possible, call to find out about the company dress code before the interview. Be confident in carrying your attire, it makes a lot of difference.
- Listen: - From the very beginning of the interview, your interviewer is giving you information, either directly or indirectly. If you are not hearing it, you are missing a major opportunity. Observe your interviewer, and match that style and pace.
- Don't Talk Too Much: - Telling the interviewer more than he/she needs to know could be a fatal mistake. When you have not prepared ahead of time, you may ramble when answering interview questions. Prepare for the interview by reading through the job posting, matching your skills with the position's requirements and relating only that information.
- Ask Questions:- When asked if they have any questions, most candidates answer, "No." Wrong answer. Part of knowing how to interview is being ready to question them that demonstrates an interest in what goes on in the company. Asking questions also gives you the opportunity to find out if this is the right place for you. The best questions come from listening to what you're asked during the interview and asking for additional information.
- Don’t appear desperate: - When you interview with the "please, please hire me" approach, you appear desperate and less confident. Reflect the three Cs during the interview: cool, calm and confidence. You know you can do the job; make sure the interviewer believes you can, too.
