Preparing for a job interview is always a challenging task even for experienced people. You don’t know what kind of people you are going to face, what questions they will ask, how you can make a good impression on them and how can you prove yourself during a short period of interaction. You need to be fully prepared by rehearsing every bit of the expected questions before you go ahead for the interview.
Here are few points to remember before going for an interview:
Arrange all documents - Arrange all required documents one night before in a folder. Take extra two copies of CV, passport size photographs(if required), documents of academic background and other relevant documents which have been asked or you think might be required. But don’t carry too much load.
Be prepared - Prepare list of possible questions a week before. Be prepared with possible answers and cross questioning. Also write down questions you want to ask.
Be on Time - Be there on time, whenever possible reach atleast 10 minutes before scheduled time.
Dressup properly - Wear formal dress. Check your appearance. Make a decent and pleasant first impression.
Positive Conversation - At first, greet the interviewers. Let them start the conversation and not you. Listen carefully and give relevant answer confidently. If you don’t know answer of any question, inform them politely. Be prepared to answer few hard questions. If you have some questions in mind, ask when your interviewer finishes questioning you. Asking questions proves good sometimes.
Highlight Achievements - Throw some light on your achievements and give them an idea how valuable you can be for their organisation.
Make Follow up - You can send a thank you email or letter after the interview and inquire about the interview result by phone after few days.
