Interviews at all times have been a nail-biting experience. Each and every one of us gets restlessness when we talk about interviews. No need to panic. Here, we have jotted down the top 9 ways through which you can crack the interview and get the desired job easily.
- Wear proper formals
The best way to make and leave perfect impression is ‘dress to impress’. Always wear formals that are crisply ironed, shoes that are cleaned properly and make sure to tie your hair up neatly. Avoid applying too much of makeup but be presentable.
- Be Punctual
Make sure to reach the company for the interview on time. If you are late for the interview, it creates a bad impression. If possible, better to reach 10 minutes before the interview time. It is one of the most important steps for creating a good impression.
- Know the employer
Before going for the interview, once go through the company’s details. Read about their history, mission, vision and objectives. This helps you in answering to the questions if asked related to their company. Focus on their future plans content, so that you are able to connect it with your job role, and tell them how you will be beneficial for their company in the long run.
- Prepare yourself
The candidate must prepare themselves properly for the interview questions. Write down a list of common questions that are asked during the interview- introduction about yourself, likes and dislikes, strength and weakness, why should they hire you and many more. Try to give an interesting answer and practice it properly before you step in for the interview.
- Be honest
While you respond to the interview question, be honest. If you think to lie in any question, it might back-fire you at any moment in the future. If you don’t know certain things, better accept it politely. It’s ok to be unaware of few things. Accepting about being unknown to few topics is much better than giving a false answer and making a wrong impression.
- Be confident
Make sure that you look confident even if you are feeling nervous. No one prefers to hire candidate who are nervous at the time of interview, as it creates an impression of inability to tackle workplace situations of the candidate.
- Updated CV
The most important document is your CV as it helps you to sell yourself to the company. By writing down all the skills and experiences, you must keep it updated. Avoid putting fake information in the resume. Keep your CV short and crisp with just required information.
- Body language matters
During the interview, the interviewer keeps an eye on you in every way. So the posture, the way you sit and your body language matters as it has a substantial weightage at the phase of interview. Avoid slouching. Better sit straight and try to make eye contacts while talking. Prefer making it a two way conversation, by clearing your doubts (if any) or by asking some questions.
- Ask for opinion
After answering to all the questions of the interviewer, ask about how it was and how much percentage chances are there of getting selected. Just ask them once. Asking for such kind of feedbacks gives a positive impression of the candidates’ interest towards the job.
