Some interview success tips

Interview these days are quite stressful and uncomfortable and you have to deal with this hiring process. So you need to understand the interview process to manage and control the interview.

Here are the some interview tips for your success in interview:


  1. Sell your achievements and don't just tell your achievements. Yes. You have to sell what you have done in your past and not just simply tell it the the interviewer.

  2. Turn your negatives into positives There are times when you are asked question for which your direct answer would be no. But giving negative answer is not a good idea. For example, if you are asked whether you have done Perl programming in past. And you know that you have not. But instead of saying it straight you can say that you have done shell programming quite well and getting a handle on Perl will not take much time.

  3. Take some initiative in your interview. Its not always good that only your interviewer is asking questions and you are asking. It is also a good thing to ask questions in return. Also, if you have worked quite well on a topic for the interview and the topic didn't even come up in the interview, then make sure you bring the topic somehow by asking some question or sharing some information.

  4. Look confident. It is natural to feel nervous in interview, but remember that you have proved yourself suitable by your resume or cover letter or by a phone interview to the post, that is why you are here for the interview. So be confident. They want to hire you.

Here are some of the common ones:

  1. Dress well and look smart.

  2. Reach the interview venue on time.

  3. Do your research about the company well before interview.

  4. Keep yourself an extra copy of your resume, your references and a blank paper for notes.

  5. Listen carefully when interviewer is talking.

  6. Give specific examples while answering the questions.

  7. Follow up after the interview.
