:: JOB SEEKERS / INTERVIEW TIPS
An interview provides for conversation between two or more people. Usually, the conversation is in the form of question followed by an answer. There are two roles in any interview, interviewer and interviewee. The interviewer may be an employer or representative of an employer who aims to know and elicit the interviewee’s domain knowledge and matters of common interest, skill set, and work experience as specific to the job-in-offer.

The interviewee need not get confined only to providing replies to interviewer’s questions. He/she may go a further step in questioning or eliciting greater details regarding job information, pay and benefits and any other information that they consider necessary to know before joining an organisation. Crucial information like job tenure, bonds and contracts, incentive policy and bonus are better to be discussed orally, before formal signing of work agreement takes place.

You need to dress smartly, look bright and attentive, and speak clearly and confidently. It was proved that only 7% of the interviewer’s opinion is determined by what you say. The rest is judged on how you look, act and present.

Do’s
  • Always better to go for a trial-run, a day before to know the exact location of the venue, and the mode of transport to reach the place
  • Expect the unexpected. Be well prepared when you attend an interview
  • Preparation for the interview begins from your CV. A meticulously prepared CV is the first step to ensure success at the interview. Usually, the major part of the interview questions is based on your CV
  • Focus on some of the main questions
    • Why do you want the job?
    • What are your strengths and weaknesses?
    • What are the main tasks in this job?
    • How well can you match your previous experience to the present job?
  • Elaborate on your skill set. Just saying you’ve got a skill won’t do. Understand the question take time to give the right answer
  • You can discuss about money or perks only when the employer asks for it
  • Most important, switch off your mobile while facing an interview. A ringing mobile reflects the job seeker’s unmannerly attitude and may cost an opportunity
Don’t’s
  • Be late
  • Use inappropriate, slang, taboo, derogatory words

  • Be arrogant or say, you have many number of jobs in offer
  • Employers demand dedicated workers, not those with overwhelming arrogance and disrespect
  • Discuss topics that reflect bias such as religion, politics and gender
  • Criticize earlier employers or their management or colleagues
  • Argue with the employer
