  4. 4. Why We Should Be A Professional In Interview? • Professionalism • Interviews are like anything else in life, they take practice to perfect. The job market is highly competitive so you should always maintain a high standard of professionalism. This is guaranteed to impress your potential employer, as it will show focus and maturity. • What is Professionalism? Professionalism is: Presentation, Punctuality and Preparation.
  5. 5. • Presentation: Presentation is not just the clothes you wear, but your general presentation during the interview. Dress for success, formal attire is the best option. Look the part and you will be more likely to get it. Body language such as eye contact and how you greet your interviewer are important. Shaking hands is a sign of confidence and respect so is making regular eye contact. Always be polite not just during the interview but to any one you may have contact with in the office or work environment. • Punctuality: Being on time is essential to a successful interview. Give yourself plenty of time to get to your destination, map out a route if you are unsure in any way. Being early gives you time to relax and prepare for your interview. If you are going to be late or unable to attend for any unforeseeable reason call ahead and let them know. This will show them that you are serious and that you take your commitments seriously. • Preparation: Get to know the company you are hoping to work for. A little background information can go a long way. You should research the company well before applying to it. You must be prepared to discuss the industry, the company's relative size within that industry and show that you know who the major players and competitors are

  7. 7. • An Employer looks for intelligence (intellectual and emotional), communication skills, leadership qualities, ethics, competence, energy, imagination etc., from the candidate.

  8. 8. • Preparing for an interview - Look for * Company's main products and services and likely new products and services * Its key markets, its position in market and between major competitors * Its financial position / profit / turnover * Its history, reputation and achievements * Arrange all the papers required in a folder : Resume / CV, call letters, degree certificates, mark lists, NSS, NCC, sports / games certificates, experience certificates, references. The Previous Day * Confirm the venue of the interview, distance, and mode of transport * Locate the venue earlier * Relax, have good sleep, visualise and pray The Interview Day * Reach the venue at least 45 minutes ahead of the interview * Get familiar with the amblience * Dont carry too much baggage * Report to the authority concerned • Waiting Hall Behaviour * Maintain Decorum * Mingle with others politely * Avoid smoking, chewing, flirting, gossiping, defamatory comments * Greet others present * Switch off the mobile * Relax and visualise
  9. 9. • While Entering The Interview Hall * Enter confidently, not arrogantly * Shut the door gently * Smile and greet the interviewers * Shake hands only if they offer their hand During The Eye Interview * Maintain eye contact * Be attentive, listen carefully, and lean forward * Don't lean on the table, and don't slouch * Don't toss your files across * Hand over your file-right side facing them * Don't laugh or giggle but smile gently * Be polite. use the words "Please" and "thank you" * Don't argue but can orally acknowledge End Of The Interview * When informed, collect your belongings * Thank everyone * For a few steps from your seat, don't show your back * Don't rush.But move out with dignity * Shur the door gently when you leave
  10. 10. • In Case Of Stress Interviews * Don't be upset * Let them not see that you are upset * Accept their point of view * Smile * Don't argue but be specific in responses with justification Job Search Tips * Don't put all your eggs in one basket * Try many methods of job search * Start early for interviews * Learn how others have been successful in their job search * Learn how to think beyond your specialisation areas. * Plunge into action
  11. 11. • Non-verbal Messages: Non-verbal language speaks larger than words. As you walk in the interview room, here are a few things that you must keep in mind: Start it off like a winner. • The handshake: Offer your hand, and give a firm handshake, a pleasant smile and a positive and confident attitude. Introduce yourself. • Posture: Stand and sit erect • Don't Fidget: There is nothing worse than people playing with their hair, clicking pen tops, tapping feet or unconsciously touching parts of the body. • Eye Contact: Look the interviewer in the eye
  12. 12. • Move your hands: Gesturing or talking with your hands is very natural, but keep it in moderation. • Be comfortable. Take a seat facing the interviewer, however, slightly off center. Be sure that you are in a comfortable position • Listen attentively. Look at the interviewer directly, but don't get into a stare down! Sit up straight. Try to relax. It's okay to take a few notes if the questions are lengthy, or you need to remind yourself of something you want to stress • Avoid nervous mannerisms. Pay attention to nervous mannerisms. Everyone is nervous to some extent, the key is to appear calm and composed • Speak clearly. Use good grammar and a friendly tone. Never answer just "yes" or "no" to a question. Always clarify, expand on your answers. Be sure not to go on rambling
  13. 13. • Be positive and enthusiastic. Pump up your enthusiasm prior to the interview. Never whine, gripe or complain about past employers, jobs, classes etc • Ask pertinent questions. Be prepared to ask a few questions. Do not monopolize the interviewer's time, particularly if you know they have appointments scheduled following your interview. Do ask thoughtful questions. Don't ask about salary and benefits, this can be discussed when the company is definitely interested in you • While giving answers to questions: • Be Concise: Listen to the questions carefully and answer to the point. An interviewee rambling on is likely to turn off the interviewer. • Provide Examples: Support your contentions with examples. Think of recent strong strategic examples of work you've done, then when the question is asked, answer with specifics, not in generalities. • Be Honest: It is always better to state the truth than beating about the bush. If you don’t know something then state the fact. • Keep Your Guard Up: Always maintain your professionalism. Don’t get swayed by the friendly behaviour of the interviewer and disclose everything. For all you know it might be a trap laid out by him.
