How to prepare yourself for an interview?
Whenever you prepare for an interview, try to keep it as formal as you can because your presence matters a lot. For example, how you are dressed, your entrance, the way you will be sitting or standing, did you wish then or took permission to get in how you took your seat, your body language, the way you answer your question, and how do you tackle your cross-question.
Each and everything matters, and you will be judged not only on your scores and the answers you give but also your presence.
What to keep in mind while giving an interview?
Before entering the room, take the permission for the invigilators or those there to take your interview. When they ask you to take a seat or settle down, say thank you, and wish them (Example- good morning), keep your presence calm and confident. When they ask you any question, listen properly, pause for a while, then answer it in an audible, confident, and calm tone. If you don’t know any answer, tell me that you don’t know about it right now, but you will go through this after. If you got stuck with an answer, you are preparing yourself inside or said something that seemed to you as not applicable. Give it a pause and start it over again with calm and confidence. Never try to say something about you don’t know. That may not be the good one. While answering, try to keep things straight, simple, and to the point; explain things briefly.

*Note – If you add your point of view, it’s not harmful but try to keep it as practical as you can and to the point talk.

They might give a situation and ask you how you will be dealing with it. So, in this phase, it depends on an individual. It’s just that try to give it a pause, think on it, and then explain it.

Let’s conclude. Things you need to keep in mind while giving an interview are other than what you have studied. There are many aspects to judge your stability, presence of mind, preference, and personality. So they may put you in a situation with some confusing questions, but in that spot, trying to get things and then answer it.
Work on your week points and make your strong point much stronger. Don’t think about the consequences. Just give your best and accept the results. If you cracked, it’s wonderful, and if for some reason you didn’t, don’t think that that’s the end; prepare yourself and come back much stronger. Believe in yourself and go for it. You will be able to achieve your dreams as you want.
Always remember you can achieve anything in life if you believe in yourself and work accordingly, and if you face any fault, it means you need to work harder than the last time. Never think of giving up because that’s not a solution because the task ahead of you is never greater than the strength with you so, work hard in silence and let your success be the Noise because, as you know, action is the foundational key to all success.
