Before sending your resume, it is of utmost importance for you to glance it up. There are numerous areas which can be highlighted as per the post you are applying for. In case, you are applying for a middle management profile, you can highlight your quantitative work efforts. Include new areas and relevant ones so that talking during your interview will be relatively easy. Know the most important question is. ‘Say something about your self.’ Here the employer is studying your confidence level and whether you are comfortable about your personality.
For a fresher, rehearsing is good. It will work well if you know some things about the new lingo used in the corporate world. The first sentence you speak must have a word that is convincing. If you are applying for a teachers post, you must make it clear that you love teaching and love kids. This is the highlight of your interview and most of the questions will be around the same. Imaginative ideas are not needed while talking on the panel. The idea is to be relevant and share your experience. The management will also like to know your long term goals and the reason why you want to be here.
It is very important to have an open attitude. In case you are not directly able to comprehend a question it is perfectly fine to ask for it to be repeated. Thereby, you will not ramble and the point will clearly come across. Most of the short listed candidates are eligible ones as they have conveyed a lot via their resume. During an interview the body language must never be dominating. Eye contact with all the interviewees on the panel is a must. There is no need to get cornered and you can state your views with proper conduct in case you differ in an opinion. Tact is the best savior at times.
Most of the employers look for confident people who can multi task. It is true that you must never say, ‘No’ during the first meet but again it is very subjective in nature. The interview looks at your profile as a manager of self and a leader to other work mates. Talking in terms of responsibility, displaying your soft skills and creating a congenial personality are very important part of an interview. Along with the same it’s good to have a well groomed look, good hygiene and impressive attire as per the tone of the interview.
