  • 1. Avoid Pitfalls
  • 2. Picture This
    You are preparing for an interview.
    You have been through all the technical information related to your field.
    You have researched the company’s background.
    You have even brushed up on your general knowledge.
    So, are you thoroughly prepared to face the interview panel?
  • 3. What about keeping
    a check on your
  • 4. Things to Know
    Your interview begins even before you say your first word
    As the interviewer walks toward you to shake hands, an opinion is already being formed
    As you wait to answer questions you've prepared for, you are being judged on your appearance, posture and smile
  • 5. The Handshake
  • 6. The handshake should be firm,
    not bone-crushing
    Shake From Your Elbow
    Hand should be dry and warm
    Do Not Use a Forceful Grip
    Pump Your Hand Only 2-3 Times
  • 7. Posture
  • 8. Stand and sit erect
    Erect posture conveys energy and enthusiasm
    Slouching conveys tiredness and carelessness
  • 9. Eye Contact
  • 10. Maintain eye contact with the interviewer
    Avoid constantly looking around the room while you are conversing with the interviewer
    Looking around can convey nervousness or a lack of confidence in what is being discussed. 
    Eye contact – confidence, is the only aspect of your interview apart from what you say and write that you can be assessed on
  • 11. Don’t Fidget
  • 12. Fidgeting is a clear sign of restlessness
    You don’t want to come across as restless in any interview
    It is very annoying for interviewers to see candidates playing with their hair, clicking pen tops, tapping feet or unconsciously touching parts of the body. 
  • 13. Preparing what you have to say is important, but practicing how you will say it is imperative.
    The nonverbal message can speak louder than the verbal message you're sending.
    65% of all information in speech is not in the words but in non-verbal communication
    The same thing holds for 90% of all
    ‘emotional’ information.
