While hundreds apply for the same role or job, there is always a need to create an edge for oneself. There are certain characteristics that employers notice and which the candidates must keep in mind during their placement interviews. Let us have a look at some strategies to thrive in campus interview:
DO YOUR HOMEWORK: You must know what’s on offer. Make a list of the potential employers after carefully assessing your potential, interest, aptitude and job profile that is likely to be offered. This will simplify the process for you. After zeroing down on potential employers and profiles, match your expectations with those of the employers’ and try to gain an insight into whether you are a right fit for the role or not. Try to analyse on the job offers on parameters such as flexi-timings, role, growth opportunities, etc.
BE PREPARED: Prepare fresh professional curriculum vitae for the campus placement drive. Highlight your strengths and strong points. Follow the KISS (keep it short and simple) rule and make the most of it in two pages. In order to crack an interview, apart from skills and knowledge in your segment of interest/ role, you are expected to keep information about your college as well. Be well prepared; attend trainings and mock interviews to let the hesitation out before your final interview.
DON’T LIE and say “I don’t know” if need be. The more you try to twist things; the interview can turn out to be a dampener for you.
DON’T BE RIGID: Be flexible and open to learning. Don’t let compensation be the only factor to decide and choose the job.
BRUSH-UP YOUR SKILLS and keep yourself up-to date- Emerging technology is making a large number of jobs superfluous in the tech industry. One can beat the gathering gloom by equipping oneself with the latest tech skills. Besides all the factors, nonverbal communication also plays an important role. Be aware that the employers take notice of every aspect of you and winning over nonverbal communication is half battle won. Your appearance, tone of your speech, expression of confidence, eye contact, listening ability and posture —all are imperative for getting you through an interview.
