Interview! Surely, a name horror, isn’t it? Now think an interview room where no one smiles, just serious questions are flooded all around. I bet you toughest ones would find that are in need of a glass of water.
Yes, sometimes it happens in the real world where you cannot find a single second to spare to have a sigh of relief. Sometimes the interview board gets so much tensed up.
After the interviews, most often we regret not giving the hundred percent in the interview because of the pressure. We cannot present our best in the interviews and let alone before the interviewers who are too serious. Here are some tips about how to face serious interviews-
No matter, what kind of interview it is, you need to be yourself. Do not try to be someone else. Do not copy as copying other will hamper your own way of perception and behavior. What you are- you need to be just that way. If you try to be someone else, then, nothing will go towards your way. Each person has their own way of treating different situations. Yes, you can take help from the experience of your known person if s/he had the same situation, but, do not let your own way of thinking.
Being calm will surely help you. It can make you confident. It will make your nerve easy. It is not very easy to be calm in tensed situations, but, at least you need to try being calm. Sometimes the interviewers intentionally make you agitated by humiliating you. But if you remain your calm you will be able to judge the situation more clearly with normal sense. Remember, only in calmness you can use the presence of mind. In these kinds of situations only you can help yourself by using your presence of mind. If you see that cannot make yourself clam or you are just being out of control, and then try to think that the job is not that much of necessity to you. Thinking this on that moment can lay off the pressure from your shoulder.
In serious type of interviews, mostly the recruiters try to search out how tough your nerves are. They try to deviate. Your flow of concentration will be broken every once in a while. They actually want to know how much of pressure you can take. Most of these examinations are due to the features of the related job field. For example, the job of being a customs officer is very cumbersome one as you need to be very tough and to continue need to interrogating people hours after hours.
One pressure test that they can ask you to take to shut the windows while the room is air-conditioned. Many will run for shutting the windows without question. So you need to be circumventing about your surroundings. Every tiny little thing you should need observe in these pressure interviews.
Be Careful About Words
The words you would choose about yourself and the answers to the question asked need to be very carefully spoken. Anything can be turned in the opposite meaning if the counterpart has any intention to clinch you. Especially if you are asked about your previous work, work condition, owner/manager, institution for which you have worked. Moreover, try not to comment on the political matters. If you are explicitly asked to do so, then, try to do it as much as being unbiased. Be speculative about speaking the future plan because your answer regarding your future plan says forth your connectivity with the organization.
Do Not Become Too Exposed
Do not expose too much personal information. Try to answer as much asked. Being too close with the interviewers may have an effect that you are trying to deviate them from the needed information.
Be Tidy and Present Yourself
You need to present yourself clearly without being too much verbose. Because if you do not present yourself, then how can the interviewers will know what you got? It is the toughest part because in a tight interview you can hardly enough ground to speak as you desire. Moreover, the pressure of what to express and what not to, confuses you so much that your whole neural system gets stuck. No matter what happens a positive approach will give you both an edge and confidence. Try to carry and show professional outlook.
The way you dress reflects your personality at least to some extent. So the attire must be given a certain level of priority and time. You must not to be saved, but, you have to look fresh and make yourself look in a way that you are confident to do the job from that exact time. Try to be looking healthy and energetic. Take a fresh mood, not tiresome one as it can be an indicator that how serious you are with this job.
