Interview Tips to Crack Job Interviews Successfully
Following the interview tips to follow to crack the job interviews successfully:
You must be prepared with the basic interview questions which are always asked – like your introduction, your hobbies, your interests, why should they hire you, etc. Be ready to face such questions. Practice them before your interview and try to make them interesting!
Do your homework
Always study about the company you are going to give an interview at. Know about its history and what it has to offer; what are its goals and objectives. Go through its website, press releases and data available online so that you are able to answer any questions on it.
Be on time
You must reach the company on time for the interview. Nothing looks worse than reaching late for the interview. Always try to leave early from your house and try to reach 10 minutes before the call time.
Dress up properly
As they say, your first impression is the last one. So always dress to impress. Wear crisply ironed formals, clean shoes and your hair should be neat and tied up. A nicely dressed person always tends to leave a good impression than a person who comes shabbily for the interview.
Do not let your nervousness come up on your face. No matter how nervous you are, always look confident. A confident candidate always has a better opportunity as it shows how he can handle situations in a better way. No company wants to employ a person who is shaking due to nervousness during the interview.
Be honest and flexible
Always be honest in whatever you are being asked. Do not lie regarding any thing as it may back fire for you in the future. If you don’t know the answer to any question, say it confidently (you are not supposed to know everything and its okay). It’s better than giving wrong answers and giving a wrong impression.
Keep your CV updated and ready to be presented when asked. Your CV is the most important document which sells you to the firm. Keep it updated and make it sellable. Enhance it with all the skills you have and all that you have done in the past. Do not make the mistake of fabricating it in any way.
You are noticed in every way. Be friendly with other candidates, the interviewer and always keep that smile on your face; it also helps you hide away your nervousness as well. Ask questions to your interviewer about the company, your job profile, ask all doubts you have and do not make the interview one-sided.
Ask for feedback
Before the interview closes, make sure you ask the interviewer as to how it went and what are the chances of being selected (do not overdo it). It gives a positive image of the candidate as it shows his keenness towards accepting the job offer.
