## General Tips To Overcome An Interview

Exclusively for Campus/Off-campus

So what if you are not a mountaineer. Or a keen hiker. You still cannot treat your
interview like a careless morning trot along a jogger's path. Your jaw-jaw at the
interview table is nothing less than a cautious climb up a mountain trail--which
begins around your early childhood and meanders through the years at the
academia before reaching a new summit in your career. And as you retrace your
steps down memory lane make sure that you post flags at important landmarks of
your life and career, so that you can pop them before the interview panel scoops
them out of you. You don't want to be at the receiving end, do you?

Face the panel, but don't fall of the chair in a headlong rush-and-skid attempt to tell
your story. Take one step at a time. Here are a few preparation tips from the Team
of Freshersworld.com that books on interviews sometimes overlook. Remember, as
a fresher you do not have anything to loose but to gain.
TYPICAL QUESTIONS THAT AN INTERVIEWER WOULD ASK

The most often asked question in interviews. You need to have a short statement
prepared in your mind. Be careful that it does not sound rehearsed. Limit it to
work/Study-related items unless instructed otherwise. Talk about things you have
done well at your college and how you wanted to perform in the first job.

## 2. Why Should We Employ You?

For this question, your answer should list out strengths that you feel are relevant to
However, structure them to suit your requirements.

## I have good co-ordination skills

Good analytical skills
I can persuade people to see my point of view, and get the work done
My greatest asset is my ability to motivate people
Even during emergencies, I do not loose my cool
I have good entrepreneurial skills
I have consistently met my deadlines and targets
Can say “no” to people when required to do so!
I am very co-operative with my sub-ordinates, and would like to see them grow
I am a good team player
I am very flexible, and have the ability to work hard under difficult work conditions
I have the experience and knowledge relevant to this job (Here, give appropriate
details and examples)

## 3. Do You Have Offers From Other Companies ?

This is of course a difficult question to answer. Obviously, you must have applied to
other companies if you are looking for a job or would have some offers from other
companies already. Therefore, do not lie that you have not. However, you are on
thin ice here! The interviewer could be checking your honesty. On the other hand,
he/she may also be trying to find out how focused you are - are you applying
randomly, or is there a well-planned strategy?

## 4. What Salary Are You Expecting?

Try not to get into salary details early in the interview. If pressed, you could say that
it all depends on the job, and would like to talk about it after a job offer. Say this in
a convincing tone. In case you are asked this question in your latter interviews, give
a direct answer. Do not sound apologetic while quoting the figure you have in mind.

SALARY EXPECTATIONS :

## 1. How much do you expect?

If you have done your homework, you would know how much other people in
similar jobs are paid. Quote the range upfront.

## 2. How much do you think you are worth?

Work out how much you should be paid, given the market value of the job and your
skills. If you can bring some extra skills to the table, do not hesitate to ask for more
than the market value.

## 4. Which is more important to you-salary, perks or growth opportunities?

This one will reveal the real you. So be sure what you are going to say. Above all, be
true to yourself. If you think this is a negotiation move, then say clearly that you will
never sell yourself short.

## 5. What do you know about our company?

Do not give your opinions about the company. Stick to reported facts that you have
gathered from newspapers and so on. Talk about the product portfolio, size, income,
and market perceptions of the company. Also it is better to refer details about each
company before going for the interview from Freshersworld.com or
PlacementWeek.com

## 6. Why should we choose you over someone else?

Talk clearly about problems that you have solved in your College/Project Team and
highlight the quality required.

6. Your qualifications are excellent, but you may be overqualified for the position
we have to offer?
Point out that more experience can never be a drawback. If you are multi-skilled,
then highlight the fact that a company on the fast-track needs multi-skilled people.
It needs people within different departments to work together. Also emphasise that
the company's future growth will be an exponential function of your experience.

## QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD ASK :

Interviewers usually round off by giving you an opportunity to ask questions. Treat
it like a welcome opportunity.
b) Now that I have outlined my career goals, do you think you can offer me the
opportunities I need?
c) What kind of training and learning can I expect in your company?
d) Describe the work culture and the management style of your company?
e) What is the long-term vision of your company?
As a fresher, current position and status can impact the way you are interviewed.

First Impressions :
There is a common saying that minds are made up within the first 5 minutes of an
interview. So keep in mind these important first impression indicators. Walk in the
door as if you already work there, carry yourself as though you feel perfectly
comfortable with the situation. Arrive on time or a little early. In the waiting area,
politely tell the receptionist who you are meeting and in a friendly way, ask where
you should sit. Take slow, deep breaths to help you remain calm and focused. When
introduced to the interviewer, have a firm, but not painful, handshake. Smile. Have
good posture when sitting or standing. Introduce yourself in a relaxed, confident
manner. Have a well-groomed, professional appearance. Project a feeling of
confidence. Bring extra copies of your resume, some thing to write on and
something to write with.
