So to get the answer he will ask you what does you know about his company? It is very important for  the candidates to be able to talk confidently about the employer’s company. Just do some homework before the interview company and check out the companies website and learn company’s history, products/services, recent news/updates etc.
  • Prepare yourself to answer some typical interview questions– There are some questions which are usually asked during interviews. These questions are asked by the interviewer so that he can have the basic idea about you, your background, your interest, your caliber, your qualities etc. Here is the list of these questions:
  1. Tell me about yourself?
  2. What are your strengths and weaknesses?
  3. What are your hobbies/interests?
  4. Why do you want to work in my company?
  5. Why did you left your last company?
  6. Why should we choose you?
  7. What are your future plans?
  • Work on your skills-“You must feed your mind with skills that open you to new responsibility.” Employability skills are one of the most important aspect of an interview. Good skills convinces the employer that you can prove to be an asset for his company in the long run. Employers always prefer candidates with good communication, leadership qualities, presentation skills. The basic skills required for an interview are:
  1. Interpersonal skills
  2. Presentation skills
  3. Leadership skills
  4. Writing skills

  • Be professional– As they say “dress to impress”. A candidate should never wear anything thats revealing and inappropriate for the interview rather always wear a decent formal dress for the interview as it leaves a good impression on the interviewer. Also maintain positive body language. Do not make the employer feel uncomfortable or weird at the time of interview because he might not prefer working with you the. Be courteous, smile and make eye contacts and treat the employer with respect.
  • Don’t talk money– If you are looking for your dream job then money should never be your priority at the first place. But it is one of the very common mistake done by the candidate at the time of interview. If the employer starts this money topic with you then its fine but don’t start it on your own. The money conversation should always take place once you have been offered the job so never start this conversation in between the interview.
