You must go to the company website, collect information related to the profile being offered, know about their products and services and much more. More you have updated yourself about the history of the company, more you will feel confident during the interview.
3. Get Help:
Just pay some attention to the experience of your seniors. Their tips will help you to clarify most of your doubts. It is not necessary to be specific about the company while collecting tips; just get a generalized idea about how to face interview. Conversation with seniors will help you to build better atmosphere during the interview.
4. Mind your body language:
One of the most important parts of the interview is to hear what is not said in words. Yeah! Your body says a lot and the interview panel is capable enough to judge your personality from that. Reflect your enthusiasm for the profile being offered, maintain a natural smile on face, learn to maintain eye contact with confidence and sit properly.
5. Dressing Sense Matters:
This is your special day and you must dress to create an impression on everyone. Before anyone comes to know you by talks, they will get a chance to judge you by your dressing sense so it is your responsibility to present yourself in an acceptable manner. Wear well ironed formal clothing and it must suit your personality. If you are confident enough about your abilities and skills then you will be able to steer the interview session as per your choice. Direct the interview panel to what you want to highlight about your personality; let them meet the most suitable person for offered profile.
