Tackle Interview with Confidence
Interviews are often dreaded especially by first-timers-non-experienced candidates. But there are experienced professionals too who are not too comfortable with an idea of getting interviewed. To make things smooth, it is important to tackle interview with confidence. The key to success in an interview is the confidence you display during the interview process, assuming that you are qualified for the job and meet the employer’s requirements.
Candidates need to respond to the interviewer’s questions in a clear manner all the while displaying high standards of etiquette and manners. Confidence is depicted through a pleasant yet assertive body language. Your posture should be straight as hunching is a sign of low confidence. Put your chin up and have a direct eye-contact with the interviewer. You should firmly answer the question and use suitable gestures such as hand movements to put across your point of view. Don’t be loud as it will be considered shouting.
One of the biggest mistake candidates do is to drag their response to a question to which they don’t know the answer. Well, if you don’t know an answer to a particular question, then simply in a gentle way tell the recruiter that you don’t know! Instead of putting a thinking session in front of the recruiter, please tell that you are not familiar with the answer. This will display your confidence as you are ready to admit that you cannot come up with a suitable and correct answer and you will also spare the interviewer long pauses which they actually hate a lot! Well, this can happen once but not often as you will be out rightly rejected for your lack of relevant knowledge. So, thoroughly prepare yourself but also be ready to tackle a unwanted situation.
So, tackle interview with confidence and you’ll definitely get your dream job! We wish you good luck in your endeavor and we hope that you make a lasting impression on the recruiters.
