Interview Do's And Dont's

Mycollege provides you with the valid key points for successful job interview. Follow these simple rules and you could achieve success on your job-hunting.

Interview Do's And Dont's

What To Do...

* Know the exact time and location of your interview. Arrive early. 10 minutes prior to the interview start time should be fine.
* Bring 2 - 3 copies of your resume and a list of references with you to the interview.
* Before entering into the room, enquire by asking, 'May I come in sir/madam'.
* Offer a firm handshake, make eye contact, and have a friendly expression when you are greeted by your interviewer.
* Do wait until you are offered a chair before sitting. And do remember the body language and the posture, sit upright and look alert and interested at all the time.
* Listen carefully to the interviewer's question before replying. Ask for clarification if you don't understand a question.
* Your answers should be two to three minutes per question unless you are asked to explain it in detail.
* If you do not know the answer to a question, it is better to acknowledge it, rather than trying to bluff through it.
* If you make a mistake, don't feel bad about it. Continue concentrating on the rest of the interview.
* Stress about your achievements but don't say any negative information about yourself.
* Have a high confidence and energy level. Ask intelligent questions about the job, company, or industry.
* A positive attitude is the most important facet of a successful interview. Give positive answers to negative-based questions.

What Not To Do...

* Don't chew gum or have bad breadth (including smoking).
* Don't have your cell phone on ringing mode during the interview.
* Don't be nervous. Be cool and confident.
* Don't make excuses. Take responsibility for your decisions and actions.
* Don't make negative comments about the previous employers or professors or others.
* Don't be unprepared for the typical interview questions.
* Don't give the impression that you are interested only in the salary; don't ask about the salary and benefits issues until the subject is brought up by your interviewer.
