So, your resume has been shortlisted and you are excited to
face your first interview. Interviews are tricky. For an interviewee, it is
really difficult to figure out what impresses the person on the other side of
the table. But, there are certain things that may infuriate the interviewer. If
you want to end your job interview on a positive note, some of the things that
should be kept in mind are:
If you don’t want to
spoil your first impression, reach for the interview on time. Take some buffer
time if you don’t want to reach the interview venue in a hurry.
Students generally hate homework. But, doing your homework
is really important when appearing for an interview. Have a look at the
company’s website and learn about the services they offer. Also, go through the
job responsibilities of the position, you are applying for.
There are chances that the interviewer may get friendly with
you during the interview. Reciprocation is good but you should not get
over-friendly. Even if the interviewer cracks jokes, you need to stay calm and
Questions (Relevant Ones)
Despite having queries, many students do not ask questions as
they think it doesn’t give a positive impression. It is just another interview
myth and you should keep it out of your mind completely. If you have any
questions about the job position or the company, just go and ask the
interviewer about the same.
Whatever be the case, you should always be polite during the
interview. Politeness is reflected not only through your words but actions too.
Take care of your posture too when sitting in front of the interviewer.
