Some Important Tips for Interview and GD

Hello Readers,

Here we are providing you all "Some Important Tips for Interviews and Group Discussion" for various Interviews in which you are yet to appear.

Some Important Tips which you have to keep in your mind while going for Group Discussion (GD).

  • Be as natural as possible. Do not try to be someone you are not. Be yourself. In an attempt to be someone else, your opinions will not be portrayed;
  • Sit with a straight and confident posture;
  • Be assertive yet humble. You need to stick to your values and beliefs, but learn to respect the values and opinions of others too;
  • Grab the opportunity to speak first, i.e. to start the group discussion with your opinion. It generally leaves a good impression on the evaluator, but take the move only if you have complete knowledge of the subject;
  • Do not repeat a point, or be lengthy or irrelevant. Also intervene, if someone else is going on an irrelevant track;
  • Facilitate contribution from others. Do not just go on and on and on with only your opinionated view. Remember, it is a group discussion. Allow others to speak too; 
  • Make an eye contact with all the participants. It creates more room for conversation. Also keep nodding, when others speak, it shows receptivity;
  • Be an active and dynamic participant. The examiner wants to hear you speak. So do put forth your views;
  • Be positive and prepare your thoughts well but do not be over-confident;
  • Think well before you speak. You are being heard and judged upon
  • When raising an objection to a point kept by another speaker, back it up with a solid reason to get the point across;
  • Use quotes, facts and figures, statements, everyday life examples to express a clear chain of thoughts. Also it might leave a good impression on the examiner and help you score well.

Some Important Tips which you have to keep in your mind while going for Interview.

1. Tips on Preparing for the Interview-Day:

  • Gather information about the bank or organization that has invited you for the interview. This will give you a clear idea about the philosophy, work environment and reputation of the company.
  • Read the job description carefully as to what they expect from you.
  • Evaluate your qualifications, experience, and core competences, areas of strength and accordingly draw up a questionnaire along with your replies to the expected questions.

2. Brush up your communication skills.

  • Interviewers normally ask you to highlight your strengths and weaknesses.
  • Strengths of course can be emphasized more easily but even the weaknesses can be presented in a positive light. For example, ‘I am a little impatient with the people who are not focused enough, or non serious about the work in hand’
  • Go with a positive frame of mind, without worrying much about the outcome.

3. Attending the Interview: Go with a smile (not a grin) on your face, with confidence and determination to succeed in your heart.

4. As You Enter:

  • Depending upon whether you are being interviewed by one person or a panel of interviewers, greet politely ‘Good Morning’/Afternoon or Evening depending upon time of the day.
  • If there are more than one person then address them as ‘Sirs/Madams’ and try to encompass them all in your greeting. If there is only one lady in the panel, it is polite to greet her separately.
  • Most probably you will be offered a seat. Do not sit down unless you are asked to.

5. Facing the Interviewers

  • As you sit across the interviewer(s), look confident and relaxed.
  • In most cases the interviewers themselves will try to put you at ease.

6. The Body Language

  • Good body language can be inculcated and practiced. Your facial expression, appearance, gestures, how you walk, talk, stand, sit, use your limbs etc. all form part of your body language.

7. Pay attention to the following.

  • Sit straight comfortably without craning your neck. Do not slouch.
  • Look attentive, keen and interested.
  • Talk clearly, maintaining a pitch that is comfortably audible to the person(s) around.
  • Do not get overexcited even while describing your achievements and strengths.
  • Listen to the queries attentively, constantly maintaining polite eye contact with the interviewers.
  • Nod your head to show that you are listening, interjecting appropriately with ‘Yes Sir/Madam’, absolutely, definitely etc.
  • Lean forward a little as you speak and backward as you listen.
  • Do not touch your face, or shake your legs.
  • Keep your arms either on your sides or in your lap. Do not fold your arms, as it is a sign of rudeness.
  • Use short simple sentences while talking. |
  • Do not make unrealistic tall claims during
