How to crack a job interview successfully after MBA?

This article will help you get an answer of most frequently asked question which mostly has been asked by fresh graduates and the question is “How to crack a job interview successfully”. Interviews have the biggest possible importance where even a slight wrong move will reject even the most qualified candidate. “Interview skills” are the primary necessity which should be learnt in order to come out with flying colors. Since, in such an age of intense competitive world, companies are not just relying on qualification of the candidates, they are equally looking towards the presentations skills as well. If you want to nail your first interview, then you need to show some gradients like zeal, enthusiasm and willingness. Most of the candidates miss these points and hence fail to crack the first interview.

Job InterviewI was aware of the same thanks to my college teachers from where I got my MBA degree and my hard work got me 84% marks in VTU University. Now, my aim was to enroll myself in a reputed and esteemed company. I was quite close towards imparting my services with an organization which has carved a niche for itself. Yeah, it was “Colgate”, but my biggest challenge was,

“How am I going to crack the interview?” and I was like tensed to the core.

In short, following things are needed to crack your first interview

  • Proper gesture and posture
  • Enthusiasm
  • Willingness to adapt to any kind of environment
  • Knowledge of the company
  • Practical or field knowledge
  • Remove any roadblocks that make you look immature
  • Etiquettes
  • To the point answers
  • Practice hard at home

If you want to succeed you have to be organized and defeat your weaknesses.

There were literally so many mistakes which were deterring me towards cracking a successful interview but luckily, my teachers worked intensely on my gestures. While having a right gesture and posture is important, but unnecessary or excessive body movement could become a impediment in your success. Interviewers do not like people in haste and this is where I needed to improve myself. Earlier, I had the habit of moving hands unnecessarily while talking to people and that was the area where I did my home work and improved a lot too.

Maintaining a normal pitch while talking re-affirms your confidence and so standing straight as well. I have seen many other candidates sitting with drooped shoulders. However, I was lucky to be guided with such detailed intricacies from my teachers.

I had another bad habit of biting my nails especially while conversing with people and I dedicatedly worked upon removing the same and luckily I did.  Needless to say, the eye to eye contacts were equally important towards emphatically asserting your point and I did master over the same too.

Besides working on my self, I equally gathered detailed knowledge about the company as I knew it is important to know about the organization where I am going to become a part of their ever increasing family. I was booming with confidence the moment I entered the “interview room”. In order to impress them, I asked previous employees about the questions they got asked. How did they manage to get into the company or what situation worked in their favor? It not only helped me to gain knowledge about the company but also about the HR. Impress the HR by telling them that you know few things about him/her and why you admire him/her and what they do.

There were three interviewers who all were impressed with my exemplary personality and confidence as I answered all of their queries with a smiling face, thus registering never ending charisma. Finally, the efforts of my teachers, prayers of my parents and my hard work paved the way for me towards successfully cracking the interview at the first go itself. Thus, I became part of the renowned company as well.
