Crack An Interview

Cracking an interview may be difficult but it isn’t something impossible. For some people, it is no less than an achievement while a few other people get through it with little or no extra effort.

So, what makes a person stand out in an interview? This blog post will throw light on 5 simple hacks that can help you crack an interview.

1. Well-dressed & well-groomed: Though this criterion seems superficial, but it is important. An interview is no less than a date. You will be judged for every move you make. A date makes you put your best foot forward and so does an interview. A well-dressed and well-groomed person comes across as more confident. Shabby-looking employees send a negative message about the working conditions of an organization, therefore, harmful to its reputation.

2. Be on time: Employers ask you to meet at a particular time because of a reason. It tells them about your time management skills. Valuing time and deadlines is one of the many important ethics of work culture. Showing up on time always works in your favor as it shows how you respect people’s time. If you aren’t an early bird, it is better to develop this habit now than never.

3. Learn to listen: A good interview is all about appropriate and relevant answers. However, it takes good listening skills to come up with an answer that the interviewers are looking for. The interviewers won’t mind you taking your time to think before you speak. You need to realize that it is an interview and not a speech where you considered good as long as you are speaking.

4. Don’t talk but communicate: Yes, there is a huge difference between talking and communicating. While talking is a one-way process, communication is more like a two-way process. You should learn to let the other person talk. And even if you differ in opinion, respond and do not react. The above-mentioned is easy to pull-off once you practice the art of choosing your words carefully. Also, try to sound enthusiastic. Enthusiastic is good but Over-enthusiastic is a big no-no.

5. End it on a good note: By the end of an interview, the interviewers are tired and so are we. The ending of an interview is the most underrated part while it is more likely to be remembered by the interviewer. Sentences like “I look forward to working with you and help the organization grow” has the potential to secure a lifetime opportunity for you.

Conclusion: Interviews are conducted to know your mindset and examine your skill set. Therefore, always speak what you can justify. Similarly, promise what you can deliver.
