Freshers applying for jobs need assistance in preparing for the interview and a few tips that come in handy to gear up for an interview. This article is simplified into 3 sections that define the requisites of before, during and after the interview. Giving an interview is no rocket science; still it must not be taken as lightly. It is not easy to get a job, so every opportunity that strikes must be tamed and achieved.
Before The Interview
Company background: you may get interview calls from several companies, but before interviewing you must always check the company profile and check for the age, capital, and other authentications on their website.
Job profile: once you are satisfied with the company profile, thoroughly study your job profile and description. Be sure of what you are going to interview for.
Documents: there are certain documents that must be carried while you are heading for an interview like passport size photographs, mark sheets, relevant experience certificates, a pen (very important- gives a good impression)
Prepare yourself: your preparation for an interview includes both mental and physical preparation. Where in mental you need to be familiar with the basic information related to your profile. Personal hygiene includes how you smell, your appearance, and over all cleanliness.
Punctual: Be there on time to give a professional impression.
During The Interview
Body language: “Actions speak louder than words” is certainly very true in the case of interviews. There are some body language techniques that will help you; eye contact, sit with your back straight, and stay firm.
Communication: Good communication skills are always a plus point in interviews. Your spoken ability is bound to enhance your work skills. Practice, learn and be confident while you talk.
Listen before you speak: “When you speak, you express what you already know, when you listen, you learn something new”. Before putting up any questions, let the interviewee complete first.
Don’t exaggerate your achievement: share your achievements but do not brag about them. It gives a vague impression.
After The Interview
Follow up: if you have not already been provided with an on the spot offer letter, it means that you do not yet have the job. So now you need to follow up with them if you have not received any information in a week’s time. But do not appear desperate. You may follow up polite questions like “I was curious to know the feedback” if still not answered you may add “when can I follow-up again”. And that should be all.
Being first timers, we all need guidance. The fact that you are reading this article right now shows that you are pretty serious about your interview. I hope this article was helpful in directing and informing you the key essentials of an interview. Wish you all the luck for your interview
