Are You All Set for the Interview?

Going to face an interview? Wait….have you done with your homework?? Now, you will say that “we are going for an interview, not for a school”. Yes guys, I know very well! I am asking about your preparations before an interview. Not done….! Don’t worry. Do your preparations with me!

A little homework, before going for an interview, amplifies your chances of selection. Follow the given below advice:

Know and Re-evaluate Yourself

“Tell me something about yourself” – this is the first question, the interviewer will ask you, whenever you would appear for an interview. So, be prepared, in advance, to answer this question.

  • Review your curriculum vitae.
  • Identify your flaws and forte.
  • Evaluate your educational qualifications and achievements.

Know the Company

You must have the entire knowledge of the company, for which you are going to face the interview.

  • Visit the company’s official website and gather information about the board members, market position, services and products of the company.
  • Before facing an interview for a public company, analyze the annual financial report. It will reveal the financial position of the company.
  • Talk with the colleagues and friends, who have worked or are currently working with the company. They will give you some clues about the working environment of the company.
  • Don’t forget to research about the industry to which the company belongs.

Comprehend the Job Profile

  • Go through the job profile. It will give you information about what education, skills and experience are required for the job.
  • Take a look at your resume and find out the areas where you best fit with the job profile.
  • Identify the difference between your skills and the job profile. Start working to reduce the differences, if any.
  • Prepare supporting points to exhibit relevancy of your forte, skills and education.

Rehearsal

  • Do rehearsal! Carry out a mock interview. Ask a friend to take your interview. This will help you in finding your lacunae and also augment your self-confidence.

I am sure; these suggestions will help you a lot.

All the best!
