Interview: An Overview
Interviews are a nightmare for many of us. This fear is the main cause of spoiling the interview sessions. Interviews are a kind of test done by the recruiters to check whether the candidate meets the requirements to be a part of their company.
The candidate, first of all, must teach themselves that failing in an interview session is not going to be the end. A single failure opens the door for lots of opportunities.
Prepare well and believe in yourself. Have confidence in your potential and start preparing before a week itself.
· Study your resume
Have an understanding of what you have produced in your resume. Read it and also keep several copies of it with you.
If at all any questions are being asked from the resume, you face should not look as if you were hearing it for the first time. Frame questions from your own resume and prepare before hand brilliant and capturing answers.
· Mock interviews
Get your friends or your family member to act as the interviewer and practice several times to get rid of the fear.
You can dress up how you would for an interview and practice introducing yourself even in front of your mirror. Remember to sound confident and happy.
How should you look?
Select the dress you would wear for the day. Choose something simple and pleasing for the eyes. Do not go about rummaging your cupboard for your dress at the eleventh hour.
· Learn your company
Google and find more and more about your company. Find out if you have the necessary skills needed to enroll in the company. Prepare to present a few words about how you can enhance the success rate of the company.
Be an early bird
Wake up early and freshen up. Do some mediation or yoga and make yourself at ease. A stressed mind is not going to perform well for the interview.
Please read the newspaper over a cup of coffee as you would for a normal day. At least be aware of the headlines for you should be conscious of what is happening around. The interviewers, may be, to cool you down ask about the current situations or happenings at first.
Reach the venue at least an hour before and get acquainted with the atmosphere. You can have a chitchat with the other candidates and release your tension.
