We have observed many times, eligible candidates fail an interview not on technical ground but on overall presentation. Everyone is nervous before an interview. To overcome it you need to practice a lot… In one of the interviews Shah Rukh Khan (Bollywood Actor, as if you did not know?) told viewers that there is only secret to success and that is practice. If you have done it 500 times, do it 501st time. So lets take a look at how to prepare for the big interview.
Research the company’s profile and background. Start by looking into their future goals and plans. Conducting the interview with this in mind will make you seem like a good long-term investment. You should also be ready to talk in depth about the industry, the organization, and the position you are applying for.
- Learn your interviewer’s name and job position before going to the interview. You may need to call the company to find out.
- Talk to current employees. Show initiative while getting a feel for the office environment. Learn as much as you can about the company from people who work there.
- Know as much about the company as possible. You can’t change your employment history or your qualifications, but you can work harder than every other applicant by being supremely knowledgeable about the company. Use the company’s website, their annual report, and newspaper/business magazine articles to gather as much information as possible.
