Thorough preparation for the interview will enable you to face the interview with confidence. Remember that each interviewer is different from others in characteristic ways and so look for ways to adapt to each one as a unique individual. Despite these differences in the personality of the interviewers, the following suggestions will be useful for most job interviews.

Be punctual and fresh

It would be a poor first impression, if you were not in time for the interview. Program your travel plans, so that you get sufficient rest and time to refresh and dress properly for the interview. Be at the venue at least fifteen minutes before the interview. Go to the interview with a fresh and an open mind.

Be dressed properly

An appropriate dress for the interview with good grooming creates a very good first impression on the interviewer. Though the personal choice of the dress for the occasion might vary, it is advisable to dress smarly but moderately for the interview, so that you may look neither negligent nor gaudy.

Entering the interview room

Before entering the interview room, adjust your dress and touch up on your appearance. Before entering, enquire by asking ‘May I come in sirs?’ If permitted, close the door softly and walk in with confidence towards the chair. Face the interview panel confidently and wish them appropriately, depending on the time of the day. If the member of the interview board wants to shake hands with you, then offer a firm grip maintaining eye-to-eye contact and a smile. Ask permission to sit down by saying ‘May I sit down sir?’, if the interviewer has not already asked you to take your seat.

Please remember that during the first few minutes, you can strongly influence the interviewers’ assessment of your personality. Hence, the first impression that you give in the interview is very important.

Be warm and responsive

Your getting of the interviewer should be warm, friendly and confident. Make immediate eye contact with the interviewer. You may feel anxious, but remember that the interviewer is after all trying to find a suitable person for a job in his organization and it is up to you to convince him that you are the right person for the job. It offers you a challenge to communicate on this aspect and try to be as enthusiastic as possible about the opportunity. Try to maintain eye contact and a cheerful disposition throughout the interview. It shows your self-confidence and poise and greatly enhances the personal impact.

Be poised

Your proper posture during the interview adds to your personality. Sit erect with hands under the table to be used only when emphasizing point or to illustrate through writing. Avoid mannerisms like playing with your tie or shaking legs etc.

Follow the interviewer’s lead

Interviewers differ widely in their manner of operating. Most interviewers expect to control the proceedings and you will only make a bad impression if you try to take over. Follow the interviewer’s lead in answering the questions. But, if you are clever and tactful, you can focus the interview on topics in which you are strong.

Be a good listener

It is imperative for you to listen carefully to the questions being asked. If a question is not clear, Seek clarification in a polite way. Seeking a clarification is far better than giving an irrelevant answer. Watch for verbal and non-verbal cues that come your way.

Sell yourself

There is no better advice that can be given to you than this. You already know that the interviewer wants to make a judgment of what kind of person you are. Help him to do so in a positive way, by volunteering positive information about you in brief and lucid way.

Like a salesman, stress your positive features and downplay your negative features. The objective even when discussing your weak points is either to minimize them or turn them into an advantage.

Market Your Skills

After you have analyzed the position and researched the organization, you are now in a position to review your qualifications for the position. Knowing what you have to offer is crucial. Expressing yourself clearly and concisely is a key element of effective interviewing.

Self-assessment of your skills, interests, and work values will help you organize your thoughts in order to project a positive impression.
A thorough self-assessment should enable you to:
• Articulate your related skills and abilities.

Avoid slang

Present day youth use slang as an integral part of their daily communication, particularly more so the University students. However, during an interview, slang will not probably be understood and certainly not appreciated. Your communication must be as formal and as explicit as possible.

Be well mannered

The way you conduct yourself reflects your upbringing arid your culture. Phrases in your conversation such as ‘yes please, thank you, I beg your pardon etc.’ Show sophistication and good heritage. It is good to project an air of humility rather than arrogance.


Any organization gives a high price for loyalty. Very often the company’s valuable assets or confidential information would be in your hands. An organization would prefer to feel secure when hiring you. A common question asked by interviewers to judge this quality is ‘why you left or plan to leave your last or present organization’.

Never speak against your former organization. The manner in which you uphold your former organization gives the assurance to the interviewer that you would do the same, if you were employed in their organization.

Do not break confidence and indulge in character assassination
In either case mentioned above, you will be demonstrating a lack of personal integrity that might lose you the respect of the interviewer. If you do it to your previous friends and organization, the interviewer may suspect that you will do the same in the present organization also. You will be viewed as having a more professional and healthy outlook, if you avoid these two errors.

Know your worth

A little prior enquiry and effort will tell you what the current average salaries of particular jobs are. Most of the job descriptions list the ranges of pay. It is generally, not advisable to bring up the subject of money in a pre-screening interview unless the interviewer mentions it. However, it is a very necessary issue in any final in-depth interview. At the beginning of your career, there is very little scope for bargaining especially in our country, where there is excess of manpower available and there is shortage of jobs. However, if you are sure of your worth, don’t undersell yourself.

Interviewer’s fatigue

Most of the time the interview panel conducts the interview throughout the day. In such cases, attention starts declining as the lunch time approaches and also towards the closing time in the evening. During this slack period, the interviewers will be falling short of questions and may prefer some lightheartedness keep them going and may become suddenly time-conscious. Should you be unfortunate to have your interview during this slack period, there is a possibility of their making a judgment of you based on too little information. It is therefore imperative for you to be aware of the situation and take initiative in offering information about yourself, which is likely to project you in the proper perspective.

Ask good questions

Generally, you will be given an opportunity to ask questions at the end of the interview. So go to the interview with good questions about the job and the company. It is up to you to determine whether you fit into the job and whether you want it or not. Questions regarding the job and the organization, working conditions, career growth prospects, working relationships and so on shows your keenness and maturity in relation to the job.

Do not press the interviewer for the result

You might like immediate feedback about your performance. But resist the temptation to ask questions like ‘How did I do, May I know the result etc.’ Interviewer needs time to analyze, consult others in the Interview panel to take decisions. Also, there may be procedures to be followed before letting you know the result.

Ending the interview

The way you conclude an interview can be as vital as the main interview. This moment is the last impression that you leave with the interview panel prior to their post-interview discussion and decision-making. Try to end your interview on a sparkling note. Finally thank the interviewer for the opportunity given to you and express your happiness and useful experience of the interview. You should then rise and wish them the time of the day maintaining eye contact and pleasant smile. Offer a handshake, if the interviewer does so first. Open and close the door gently while exiting if the interviewer does so first. Open and close the door gently while exiting the room. It is prudent to wait for sometime at the interview office, if an as afterthought, the interviewer may want to clarify anything further with you.
