In a recruitment process, an interview is invariably one of the last but most crucial processes. It involves a one to one interaction of the candidates with the prospective employer. Besides giving
the interviewer a chance to evaluate your strength and skill, it also gives you an opportunity to understand what to expect from the organization.
No matter how well qualified and articulate one is for a job, there is nothing to replace thorough preparation for the interview. Have a good grip of your strengths and weakness. Know what to
talk at the interview and how to handle the situation, if things do not go as planned.
6 Killer Job Interview Tips for Freshers
1. Research on company profile: Many candidates doesnt know to research about the particular company before attending for Job Interview. In my experience most of the interviews firstly focuses on the point Do anyone knows about Company profile in Pre Placement Talk (PPT). If anyone answered about this question in a crowd, company officials thought that you have done homework about particular company. Try to get something like Mission, Vision, Clients etc.,
2. Research for seeking Job: Write a note about the company like Founder name, established year, turnover, number of employees etc., before attending for PPT. Underline the main keywords so that you can recognize more at presentation. Get more details about the job description and get ready for the Interview.
3. Observe the Interviewers: Get the name of the Interviewer from Training and Placement officers (TOP) and do some research on Google by using some techniques like if you are attending for TCS and name of the interviewer is Praveen, search like TCS Praveen Interviewer . Observe the Interviewers mind set in Pre Placement Task.
4. Be thorough with Resume: In my experience, most of my friends doesnt know how to justify about the details that are mentioned in their own resume. It happens. Most of the candidates will focus to know more about company profile, services they offer etc., and then forget to be thorough with Resume. Interviewers will ask you the details that are mentioned in your Resume. My suggestion was to go through the key points like hobbies, personnel traits and challenges.
5. Prepare your Tools: First Impression is the best Impression. So one have to try most to get positive impression. Ensure your personal appearance like having clean and ironed clothes, well groomed and keep in mind to have a polished shoe that fit to your clothes. Preparation is so important in this case to dress for success.
One of the killer interview tip was to have your work on paper or iPad/Laptop which was helpful to differentiate yourself among other candidates. Get ready with few copies of resumes to provide for the Interviewer.
6. Practice! Practice! Practice!: There was a great saying that Practice makes man perfect and it holds good in case of facing an Interview. Practice your interview skills by conducting mock interviews with your friends. Record your own voice to have clarity about the slang and to know about the influence of mother tongue. Body language was an important task to learn and record a video to see you while answering questions in mock interview.
