Candidate's body language and introduction plays an important role in creating an impression in the interviews. How you present yourself, how you talk to them , how you keep them engrossed, etc. Your impression at the entry point in the interview is of utmost importance. Behaviour scientists and communication experts have concluded that it takes ten seconds to form the first impression and it takes another four minutes for the impression to undergo a change of 50% towards positive or negative side. Important Things to take care of before entering the Room:  Prior to entering the room, adjust your attire  Before entering, enquire by saying,"Please may I come in".  If the door is closed before you enter, make sure you shut the door behind you softly.  On entering the room face the panel confidently and wish the members.  If the members of the interview board want to shake hands, then offer a firm grip first maintaining eye contact and smile. Always make sure that your hand shake is firm and it fits well in the other persons hand.  Sit down only when asked to do so by the Panel. If the interviewers are standing, wait for them to sit down first before sitting.  An alert candidate would diffuse the tense situation with light hearted humour and immediately set rapport with the interviewers. Note: We understand that many of you students face an issue regarding confidence, face trouble in having a conversation, or are not comfortable in initiating a conversation, get butterfly in your stomach when you face an interview. Well that's because you have a set image about the panellist in your mind, you are scared of their judgement and are not very sure about your own self. So how to deal with this situation? Trick is to have a formal conversation just as you would have with your uncles and aunties, not thinking of what they would think of you. remember the members of the panellist are not from another planet, rather people like you and me, have had similar journeys like you from a student to now esteemed bankers.  So prepare your answers to all questions possible before hand,  Teach yourself to talk to the point and without beating around the bush.  Be smart with words.  Once you are prepared, have faith in your self.  Last but not the least, once in the interview room, forget about all your inhibitions and just go ahead with full confidence (but stay away from overconfidence, be humble always).
