Well, getting a dream job is one of the best things of one’s life. But, before getting the job in the dream company, facing and clearing the interview is compulsory. No matter from which school did one pass out or how many degrees one has in his or her hands but it is the ability to crack the interview that would fetch a jobseeker, the job that he or she wants. So, here are some useful things that one should know while facing an interview:
- Know everything about the company: The first thing to do is go to the website of the company and read about their vision, mission, departments, strategy, policy, the kind of products they develop, competitive advantages, competitors, finance and things like this. If there is no website available, one should try to find out everything about the company from other sources like chambers of commerce, library etc.
- Prepare an introduction: One must sincerely prepare a small introduction in the form of key points. This is an opportunity to begin the interview in a positive way and indirectly present the recruiters what one has got to offer.
- Wear proper attire: The way one dresses up creates an impression about that person. During interview, one should not go for bright colour or loud jewellery. Instead, it would be a good idea to wear a neat and tidy suit that looks little formal and sophisticated.
- Be honest, talk honest: While indulging oneself with the interviewer, the candidate must be genuine and honest. If one makes a mistake, it should be accepted in a positive way and responsibility for the same must be taken immediately. Do not pretend to be what you are not, it could spoil the impression that you made.
Hence, keeping confidence and telling the truth are the two key elements that could break or make your interview.
