How to excel in an Interview - V

I fail to understand why do I get rejected in an Interview?

                  Now as we have successfully figured out as to how to answer “Tell me something about yourself?”, we are successful in creating a positive inquisitiveness in the mind of our interviewer. Now the interviewer starts thinking in the line like ‘give me a few more reasons to just stamp you as a select’. Hence, what’s next? Next is the testing of specific skills of yours, suitable for the job. No matter what sort of questions would be coming up next, they would all be checking out on your skills on offer - in detail. Hence, here you don’t necessarily need to mug up 100 different kinds of answers to the most common interview questions, with an expectation to remember the best one for the time to come. From heron strategizing the process is what that best works.

How to excel in an Interview - IV

Tell me something about yourself?

This is the question you must have encountered numerous times during your career path and might be hearing it many more times in the years ahead. This is actually the “on your marks, get set go!” of the interview. Before this, you and your interviewer were just settling down in their respective positions. It is also projected in some more polished manner like, “run me through your resume” or “walk me through your background” or “tell me what is not in your resume” and many more variations of it. Basically, this is an icebreaking question of the interviews and also the base of all the questions that will be hurled at you during the conversation ahead. It is also termed as a “positioning statement” by many interview coaches.

How to excel in an Interview - III

First Impression

How to conduct yourself at the reception area.

         It may sound inquisitive as to “What the hell! Do they watch us at the reception area also?” The answer is no. Nobody watches the visitors at the reception area until its some kind of an intelligence agency. You have to keep in mind that all your preparations in form of your imaginative interview actually starts taking shape right there at the reception area of the organization that you are attending the interview for. Let me assure you that at least half the chance of the interview to be a success or a failure is set up there in the mind of the interviewee right there at the reception area where you are waiting for your turn. If you don’t believe me, just remember the thoughts which were going on in your mind while waiting for an interview in the reception area from your most recent of the experiences, if you can recall.

How to excel in an Interview – II

As I had suggested that we will move on the topic with the flow of the day so that we can take up each and every aspect as it comes by and hence we will start with the first thing for the day i.e.

Getting ready for the day! 

Have a good night sleep before the interview day

It is easier said than done but try to think about other things in order to get a good night sleep otherwise it will only add to your stress and you may even sit up in the middle of the night to revise a certain hopeless topic that you are not able to recall. You have had so many days to think and recreate your interview in mind and you cannot change anything at the last moment. You should look fresh and ready for the day.

How to excel in an interview - I?

           Getting through an interview is the biggest nightmare of the intelligent and the dumb alike. You all must have felt nervy before an interview at some point or the other in your career. Must have also wished that you had answered that question differently or negotiated with the situation more tactfully.

Let’s face it.

Interviews are not normal conversations. Why? Because you are there in the hot seat and the interviewer is the authority figure that has all the power to select or reject you. This is scary, isn’t it? Panic creeps in with the fear of failure. The biggest mistake that the interviewees commit is that they over prepare for an interview and that to in the manner they prepare for their written tests and exams. All this preparation seems futile after coming out of that ordeal. It’s also difficult to actually assess as what went wrong because you either never get or wrongly get a feedback on how have you performed in an interview.

How to increase resume visibility on Job Portals? - III

Keyword Optimization

I apologize for not including the Keyword Optimization methodologies and techniques in the last post. I did that on purpose. First the post would have become lengthy and I wanted to discuss this at length covering all the aspects where the Keyword Optimization works.

Consider it in the same way as Search Engine Optimization (SEO). For those who are not aware of the term, it is the methodology by which one ensures that his/her website ranks higher on the various search engines, i.e. SEO increases the visibility of your Website on Search Engines like Google, Yahoo, MSN, Bing etc.
