CHALK2CHEESE, a personality development and enhancing soft skills academy is more like a grooming school. It helps u become the best version of yourself.

Need to do things before job interview:

  • Research the organization and position you are applying for.

  • Think about how well your experience and skills would fit the job and organization.

  • Find out what the prospective employer is actually looking for.

  • Research current affairs and trends in your proposed job sector.

  • Anticipate questions and prepare answers accordingly.

Points to be considered before interview:

  • Plan to arrive at the venue approximately 15 minutes prior to the interview. Take proper map/ directions of the venue or preferably see the venue one day prior before the interview.

  • Prepare for dress code - dress formally including formal attire including formal shoes and take care of body odor.

  • Sleep well before the night of the interview to be mentally alert at the same time.

  • Mobile should be switched off or kept on vibration mode before entering the interview.

How to give a good impression at an interview:

  • Arrive 10 to 15 minutes prior to interview.

  • Be organized- carry documents like call letter, certificates, testimonials, and a copy of your C.

  • Highlight your best attributes (Be prepared before the interview about your strong points)

  • Communicate effectively- speak audibly -maintain eye contact- a good posture- show confidence.

  • Practice loudly the answer one day before the interview to gain confidence.

Techniques to be used to calm the nerves:

  • Most of the time we are nervous though the preparation is good but still the thought scares us, few things can be done to keep your nerves calm.

  • Know what unique quality you bring to the organization.

  • Think and say practical examples to demonstrate what you have achieved so far or in your previous job.

  • Write notes and carry to the interview.

  • Be aware of the structure of the interview- begin with simpler topics.

  • Pause before answering a difficult question in order to give yourself time to think.

  • Use positive language as interviewers look for motivation and enthusiasm.

  • Ask for clarification if you are unsure of the question.

  • Take deep breaths to relax.

On personal experience I feel you should know the answers to few questions that are likely to be asked like-

  • Why should we hire you?

  • Where do you see yourself five years from now?

  • In what way would you be an asset to the company?

  • What are your strengths and weaknesses?

  • Can you work under pressure?

You need to work on this commonly asked questions. Here you can use S.T.A.R method to answer your question of work under pressure.

S.T.A.R stands for Situation, Task, Action and Results.

You can answer with help of what was the situation given, What was the task, What was the action taken and What was the end result. This helps the interviewer to understand how well you can perform a task and how much pressure can you take at workplace.
