What personal interviews judge

A personal Interview is a foremost tool to judge the abilities of a person. In the face-to-face contact between the interviewer & interviewee, it is possible to record more than only verbal responses; which are often superficial. When human beings communicate directly with each other, much more information is communicated. The nature of words used, facial expressions & body language- together contribute to judging a person.

Hence one should be mindful of the following in a personal interview:

  1. Look sharp - Being smartly and elegantly dressed not only makes you feel good but also has a strong impact on the interviewer. Like the mantra ‘The way you dress, defines the way you think, act and how other’s react’
  2. Listen carefully - Giving full attention to not only what is said but also to what is not said will make you know about what they have in store for you. Sometimes important things are left unsaid between the lines, make sure you catch up to every bit.
  3. Answer only what is asked - Do listen carefully to what you are being asked, if you don’t understand confirm it again and while answering do not deviate from one thing to another. Straightforward and to-the-point answers are only what they love to hear.

Best of luck with your interview preparation!
