Job interview  Preparation Tips

General interview questions are a part of practically every single job interview nowadays. Despite they tell just a little about the suitability of a candidate, they have some meaning for the employers. Recruiters are able to create a good picture about your communication skills, self confidence and also attitudes. you have to yourself. 

General interview questions are those questions about goals, weaknesses and strengths, etc. 

What more to tell to general interview questions? There is practically nothing we can add. Do not waste too much time in your interview preparation with these questions. What you answer to them is not that important as most of the people believe. Rather concentrate how to answer interview questions, to present the right abilities and attitudes.  

Physical part of interview preparation

Applicants often forget on this critical part of job interview preparation. To have a good sleep and a good meal can be critical. 

 Also to run a half marathon one day before the job interview is not a very best idea. If your body hurts, your mind will be too focused on it and your interview concentration low.

Best thing you can do is to spend a perfect day, or at least a perfect half-day before your job interview. Do what you like, go for a walk to nature, or watch your favorite TV series.
Do not stress yourself too much in the last moments. That’s never positive. Go to bed early the day before your job interview and have a good tasty breakfast definitely.
Enjoy your time before the job interview, so both your mind and body will be relaxed and ready for the important moment. You will need your best performance in the job interview to have a chance.


Informational part of interview preparation

This is the part most of the applicants focus on before their job interview. Of course, it is also a very important one. You should definitely double-check all your materials, your interview portfolio, resume, but also your travel plan and all the little things to ensure everything is at place.

You should read the company website carefully, the same about their Facebook account, Twitter account etc.

Clever applicants will also use Google search feature to check some information about people that will interview them. Armed with all these information you can easily show your strong interest and desire to work for the company and also compliment someone from the interviewers, for their recent achievements.


Interview preparation tips: Mental part of interview preparation

It is exactly the mental part of interview preparation where the biggest gap between winners and losers stands. When going to the job interview, it is critical to have the right mindset.

Be relax
Listen positive music's or play video game whatever to clear your mind.
In case that you strongly believe into the last minute preparation, do it in a relaxing, simple way. Do not bury yourself with tons of papers. That will just confuse you and make you feeling stressed…


Practical part of interview preparation

Although all of us have heard that any practice is better than theory, just few apply it also when speaking about job interviews.

Try to role-play a job interview with one of your friends. Practice Following interview questions with him/her.

Introduce yourself. Listen tell something which is not in your cv in 18 seconds?

 As a matter of fact , this question is somewhat deceptive. It looks easy but is not so in reality. Usually your answer to this question lays the foundation for the entire interview.

Points to remember: To Answer this question you should cover your Educational background very briefly, work experience or any industry exposure, career objectives, Achievements .

 "Then you can add a few details about what type of person you are, your likes, dislikes etc.. Giving details about your family background is not compulsory."

Remember that most of the interviewers have the habit of framing their questions based on your response to the first question. Hence, be sure that you are conscious of what you are saying there.
It will help you to avoid possible shocks.


What are your greatest strengths?

Points to remember: As a general guideline, the 10 most desirable traits that all employers love to see in their employees are: 

1.Intelligence...management "savvy".
2.Honesty...integrity...a decent human being.
3.Good fit with corporate culture...someone to feel comfortable with...a team player who meshes
4.well with interviewer's team.
5.Likeability...positive attitude...sense of humor.
6.Good communication skills.
7.Dedication...willingness to walk the extra mile to achieve excellence.
8.Definiteness of purpose...clear goals.
9.Enthusiasm...high level of motivation.
10.Confident...healthy...a leader.


4.What are your greatest weaknesses?

Disguise strength as a weakness.

Example: “I sometimes push my people too hard. I like to work with a sense of urgency and everyone is not always on the same wavelength.”
Drawback: This strategy is better than admitting a flaw, but it's so widely used, it is transparent to any experienced interviewer.
BEST ANSWER: Assure the interviewer that you can think of nothing that would stand in the way of your performing in this position with excellence. Then, quickly review you strongest qualifications.
Instead of confessing a weakness, describe what you like most and like least, making sure that what you like most matches up with the most important qualification for success in the position,
and what you like least is not essential.

Are You Comfortable Working In A Team?
