Your Resume ready for interview

Before sending your resume to the employer.  You must cross-check your resume.  Details such as

  1. academic qualification
  2. technical qualification
  3. internship details include short and very specific  project details.  Also mention your roles and responsibilities during the internship.  Problems you solved during your internship.
  4. projects you completed in college

you also have to select the latest resume format.  The best way to find the latest resume is to visit Google and search for “latest resume format”

Pre interview preparation

You must practice your introduction pitch. To do this, you have to rehearse for the interview at your home in front of the mirror.  You must also check your expression while you rehearse for the interview.

Search new or simple vocabulary to create the first impression.  To do that you can do one thing, visit Google.com or youtube.com, and search for” impressive words”. 

Write all those words in a notebook.  Then practice your introduction pitch and use the new words you searched from google search.

This will create a better first impression in front of the interviewer.  Even if you are a fresher or an experienced professional, you can handle difficult questions by using simple impressive word vocabulary.

Stopover at the interview Location

Visiting the interview location a week before will help you to acclimatize the surrounding of the venue.  Try to visit the interview location around lunchtime and or in the evening time. 

During lunchtime, most of the employees come out of the premises.  And this is the best time to listen to their conversation by standing around.

 You will be able to collect vital information about the company.  Information about various incidences that happened, new activities, upcoming events, and even the mistakes management or top manager are doing. 

Eventually, you will learn a lot of information, ins and outs of the company.  You will get to know information about happening inside the company and much more information that will help you to face your interview with much more confidence.

  • The first thing you must do is prepare your formal clothes. 
  • Get your hair tripped to get professional look.
  • If you have beard, get it trimmed or aligned to get professional look.
  • Do lot of rehearsal in front of the mirror.  See yourself in the mirror and start asking questions that the interviewer might ask you in the interview. Then answer the questions and rectify errors in your answer.  Repeat this step till you answer all the questions perfectly
