How To Prepare For An Interview
You are probably more than qualified for the job. Your skill set and experience are tailor-made for the profile. So why does all that self-doubt creep in when it's time for you to shine? Here are a couple of tips to calm your nerves before an interview.
1. Practice and Recite- We know the importance of revision before an exam right? Similarly, an interview round would go better if you knew how to go about it. We might not recall every single detail on the day of the interview but adding relevant experiences complementing the job profile is crucial. Recording yourself prior to this will enable you to understand how you want the conversation to flow and the areas you need to work on.
2. Be prepared for uncomfortable questions- While most interview questions are predictable, you can never go into an interview expecting to know all the answers. The interviewer is observing how you hold up under pressure. In order for them to do this, they often put you in a spot. For instance- asking you about having a gap year in your resume, not sticking around in one place for too long, not being promoted, and staying in the same position longer than expected. Make sure you answer these questions with as much ease as possible, rest assured every individual has faced an obstacle like so, and moving past it is the only way to go.
