There are certain very important aspects that one should keep in mind while preparing and facing an interview such as: Emotional Preparation, It’s OK to Be Nervous, Look Better, Look Them in the Eyes, Answer Briefly, Feel Better, Be Quiet and Focused.
Less talk and straight to the point
When it comes to conversation during an interview, sometimes less is more. As a common rule, you should speak one-third of the time and definitely no more than half of the time. The finest interviews have a give-and-take atmosphere. To do this, you need to ask questions and try to illustrate out your interviewer rather than talking about oneself nonstop. When it’s your turn to speak, don’t waver to peddle yourself, just remember to stop talking after you do.
Feeling tensed is a natural instinct
Not only is it OK to be tensed about an interview, but also it is essential for you to accept how you feel. Telling yourself you should feel in a different way than you do is unrealistic and just makes you feel terrible about yourself. What’s the nastiest that can happen at an interview? For many, it would be not receiving an offer. Did you ever think that maybe the work wasn’t right for you? Try to look at the procedure as a learning experience.
Preparing emotionally for the interview is as important as researching the company. The right mood helps you perform at your best. Try these suggestions for preparing emotionally: get moving — go for a walk, run, exercise, meditate, do yoga, stretch, dance, something — activity gets blood flowing to your brain; sing your favorite song while driving to the interview; repeat an inspirational phrase aloud that’s meaningful for you; or simply remember a time when you felt terrific.
Walk and Talk Neat
If you want to be well groomed up at your appearance for the interview but can’t afford new clothes, consider varying an outfit you already have by blend it with a different shirt, tie, or accessory. Even on a tight resource, you can find some real good deals out there. For better or bad, looks can make a difference.
Eye to eye contact
Eye contact is one of the most vital aspects of nonverbal communication and can make a major difference in how you present yourself. If you look absent when speaking to someone, you’re viewed as missing confidence or interest. If you have a difficulty looking into your interviewer’s eyes, try looking at the “third eye” right on top of and between the eyes.
