Well, its only a one time chance. It’s either a hit or a miss. Interview sessions are one such place where one has to be very careful on responding part. It could happen that one has a lot of skills but just doesn’t get selected because of inability to express; on the other hand it also becomes very difficult if one does an over assessment and promises on what they don’t know about.
The key is to achieve the right balance between what one already knows and what you one potentially do in the coming months.
Here are the five tips for an Interview:
1. Closing the doors of negative talking: One can talk less but talk positive. Remember this, people (including your interviewer) would actually like to have positive vibes instead of negative emotions. So, talking with lots of positive hope and radiating good energy around is stimulating and encouraging. According to a research carried out by “All in Mind” the chances of getting hired gets 40% high on showcasing positive emotions during an interview.
2. Building a story: Believe it or not, people like stories. The chances of interviewer remembering the interviewee becomes quite possible with a good story one tells about themselves. So, take a pitch and go ahead.
3. Telling Instances on the challenges overcome : People face challenges in their work life. It is very generic. One could be very genuine on this part and explain an example of how the particular challenge was overcome through persistent efforts and careful planning.
4. Being an empty cup to learn new skills: There are times where interviewer asks to gain new skills for particular job. Accepting the challenge and being ready to learn, showcases the quality of adaptibility towards the job role.
- Confident posture: Heard of the adage that communication is only 7 percent verbal and 93 percent non-verbal. Certainly, proper vocal variety and confident body language aids the process of building a better impression. To give a stand, today we presumably live in a visual world, where focus is mainly on the running form of image, video.
