How to prepare for Personal Interviews (PIs)?

The first and the most important thing to remember is that an interview is a conversation between the interviewer and the interviewee and not a question-answer round. To start with, the candidate should be well versed with their CV and the pointers mentioned in it. Since it is communication the candidate should prepare the typical hygiene questions which consists of ‘tell me about yourself’ (which is usually the first question) to drive the interview in their favor. The candidate should also prepare their strengths and weaknesses with a situation augmenting each one of them. The candidate should also be clear with their objectives of taking up an MBA for a career in the corporate world and stay confident while answering the questions posed to them. Upskilling can also be undertaken to increase CV pointers. Finally, the interviewee should learn about the school they have applied for and be honest in their approach.
