10 Tips you must know before heading to an Interview

  1. Be Yourself-

Presenting skills you do not possess give a very negative impact on your professional background. You can be confident enough only if you show up your true side. Lying in your resume can easily be identified when an interviewer tests you in the interview room. This forces him to give a second thought on you. To avoid such massacre, just be yourself!

  1. Know your skills-

Working gets really easy when you know what skills you have in and out and what environment are you comfortable working in. It gets really tough for a person who is great at designing skills and has to work in some other field which is totally out of the box experience. Knowing your skills help you get your own way to the stairs of success!

  1. Strong profile-

Yes! We are talking about your Linked In profile. A strong profile which contains some achievements, certifications, participations, projects, trainings, work-experience etc. Try indulging into more activities in order to judge your skills and get your way through it. Impress a recruiter enough to call you up for an interview by itself without your efforts!

  1. Appearance matters-

On the big day, prepare yourself to look professional because half the judgment goes with your appearance. Also, carry your resume and important documents along. Whether a start-up or a big firm, they judge you by your looks, i.e., how much professionalism you have learnt these years. Dress code in schools and colleges are just a way to teach you how you should present yourselves at work and teach equality among everyone out there. Go ahead and make them proud of their teachings!

  1. Be prepared mentally-

Since you know your skills now and not lying about yourself, you should be confident enough. Do not gloat about yourself neither be underestimated. Both the parties equally need each other. At the end, what matters is how much confident you are atyour work. There might be a possibility of not getting hired, but then there is someone looking for you. Keep digging!

  1. Accepting challenges-

Helping yourself to be aware about your work and what’s new to learn will help you understand the motive of your work and give a more meaningful approach to the job process. Keep learning, there is no end for knowledge. A fresher or a CEO, both need to learn something new each day because success is the ultimate goal!

  1. Strong Resume-

Interviewers focus on each and everything you have posted in your resume. Be it the content, font size, alignment, contact details, format etc. because it gives a clear picture of what actually you are. Resume should be impressive enough and not to forget, it should mark your skills, career objective, educational background, achievements, certifications (if any), no. of projects you have worked on, previous company’s details, your clear contact details, hobbies and not to forget about the declaration that should be mentioned below to assure the interviewer about the information. Last but not the least, avoid grammatical errors!

  1. Practicing-

Getting nervous? Finding it hard to face your interviewer? Don’t be. You can practice your common interview questions and their possible answers, assuming anyone in your family as an interviewer. This practice can help you to be more confident resulting in a smooth and fluent interview.

  1. Knowing about the company-

It’s not all about the company wanting you, it’s equally about you choosing the one. In this digital era, every company has a platform to promote themselves and one of them is their website itself. Go through the company’s website and you can actually make out what it is all about. Just like your resume reflects your personality, same way a website and the work front describes about the company. It can help you choose wiser professional environment!

  1. Much needed sleep-

Since you have prepared yourself well enough, go early to bed a night before interview. Releasing stress is very much necessary. You do not need to worry about get hired because it’s all about the company’s needs. Be positive always because you are increasing the chances of getting hired!

Wish all the folks best of luck to achieve goals higher than mountains!!
