How to prepare for an Interview
Ten steps you should take before you show up at the interviewer’s door.
Review your resume :-
Revisit your resume from the point of view of the interviewer.
Information Gathering :-
Get to know the company you are hoping to work for.
Location and punctuality :- Find out the location of organization & make sure you arrive 5-10 minutes early. Arriving early will give you the opportunity to read some information on the company in the reception area.
Be professional :- Be aware of the company culture and ensure you dress to impress. Decide what you are going to wear the night before to avoid making the wrong choices.
Be polite :- Don’t interrupt to the interviewer. Listen very carefully. Avoid loud laughter during the interview.
Be positive :- Keep in mind that there is only one chance to make the first impression. Every company wants employees who are goal-oriented, career-driven, enthusiastic and motivated. Be the employee as they want. End the interview on a positive note. The hiring official needs to know that you are interested, enthusiastic and excited about the position and the company.
Be practical :- If you are experienced then the interviewer already knows your current salary and benefits package. When the topic of salary comes up state that you know they will make a fair offer. If you are offered the position during the interviewing process and you want the job then accept it. If the offer is not acceptable for any reason, ask for time to consider the offer.
