After the job selection, you have to prepare according to your job profile. Now a days competition is increasing day by day because the number of applicants is high and demand is less. In any interview the quality of performance matters. It does not matter Whether the company is big or not you should be like a gem. For big companies, applicants will be more so concentrate little bit more while applying. Initially companies go for one or two rounds but the number is increased. Now it is four to eight rounds, depending upon the company it varies. You have to cross so many levels like technical, behaviour or HR interview. Systematic preparation is important to perfom well in the interview.
Preparation starts with physical appearance, behaviour like dressing, proper eye contact, non-verbal communication like smile. A firm hand shake movements, gestures and facial expressions are very important during an interview. Practice is the best way to prepare for an interview. Practice infront of mirror for several times so that you can identify the mistakes by yourself easily and practice well untill you get confidence.
Prepare well for the Interview questions and answers. The most often questions are:
Tell me about your self?
What are your strong points?
What are your weak points?
What are your goals and objectives?
When it comes to technical or managerial jobs they will check the knowledge according to your studies. Most of the interviewers check the basic knowledge because it is like a foundation of the building. Must and should learn the basics before attending the interview. The most important part is resume, it tells about you with out saying any thing orally. Most of the interviewers ask the questions according to your resume. So fill the resume honestly. If you want to say any thing, use the chance when ever you get it. Avoid silly mistakes like spelling and gramatical. Really it makes very bad impression on you. Try to prepare new resume according to the market so it shows the intensity towards the job. Some applicants go for the poor quality of paper better use the quality hard copy. Interviewer get easily attracted.
Final thing is promote yourself as best as you can because if you cannot promote yourself perfectly how can you help the company to do better. Simply expose yourself in a attractive way. There is a wide range of psychometric tests, aptitude tests, behaviour tests, personality tests, practical tests and more so you have to be very care full while doing tests. Prepare for the interview in a right path. All the best.
