Make Your Notes
As soon as you get an interview call, the first thing to do is to make your notes for the day. No matter how good you are at speaking or how responsive you could be to people, underestimating the challenge of an interview can push you in doldrums.
To play safe, make sure you make your notes of what should be your answers to a few standard questions. You must know your word limit. Dragged articulation can mire you.
There is no hard and fast rule of wearing a two piece suit for an interview. You can be casual too. Decency however is to be maintained. Also, it is suggestible to research on the environment of the organization you are going to. If it is hardcore corporate, then you have to resort to the orthodox two piece or else a dress shirt with or without a tie would suffice.
For females, soft colors are recommended. Also, the dress size should be a perfect fit. A dupatta — if carried — should be appropriately pinned. Straightening out the dupatta when you are being interviewed leaves a bad impression.
Be Before Time
Being on time often overpowers you. All the watches do not run by your watch. It is better to avoid risks and arrive at the interview place at least 15 minutes before it is due.
Arriving early helps you relax yourself, prepare your mind for what’s coming, and observe the surrounding environment. All of this enhances promptness.
Wear a Smile and Greet Louder
From the time you enter the interview place till the time you make an exit, you ensure your face doesn’t go flat or ungenial. You wear a steady smile even if you have to force it. Also, greet everyone you encounter here and there. It spreads positive vibes around. If the people at the organization are happy to see you, the recruiter may also feel inclined to have you.
Be Real, Be Meaningful, Rigid and Confident
Never undermine your real self for a job. You do not have to say yes to everything. You might at the moment sense that your appeasement is buying you the offer but actually it is rather distancing it from you.
A recruiter dodges to scrutinize your whims, fears, and weaknesses. He would try to convince you on a wrong notion to discern where you stand morally. You do not be a subject to manipulation. You must be active to understand what is being done and how to reverse its effect. Stay rigid and confident on your beliefs even if the other tells that you do not stand a chance.
The interview is not just about you answering throughout the period. There are many spaces where you can strike with a powerful catch phrase to make an impression. You can also raise a few arguments that leave the recruiter ponder over the depth of your analysis. Besides, highlighting your competency for the job at hand, it is a beneficial exercise to draw their attention to your extra potential that makes you stand out from the other candidates.
Be Thankful and Hopeful
As the session comes to an end, you should always tell the recruiter how happy you are to have been called. He/she should sense in your words your eagerness to be a part of the organization. Also, communicate in words that you are looking forward to hear from the company and that you expect to see him/her again. This creates a cordial corner in the heart of the recruiter which can increase your chances to get in the game.
