Master Key For Effective Job Interviews


Just like there is a master key for all locks, how about having a similar key to win any kind of interview - Imagine. I'm not going to tell average things like how to sit and how dress, but a genuinely winning thing that every one requires desperately. Here you will come to know the thinking, intention and the body language of the person who interviews you. Read thoroughly to know hidden facts.

I like to tell you the most predictable questions in the interview and then you will have chance to laugh on your eccentric imagination about interview, and you will also come to know that interview is little-more like KBC, where biggest thing matters is the presence of mind and expressions with difference.

I said presence of mind because it is your "INTER - VIEW", they check the kind n quality of responses form your inner world (Skills, abilities, smartness, etc.) that helps to do outer stuff smartly and smoothly. When they get what they want from your inside then you get 100% decided for the post. Mind guides the body; body does not guide your mind. Mind your answers as well as mind your body. They do not consider how you neatly placed your degree in a very expensive and good looking file or a folder. They are primarily interested in to unfolding your inner world in maximum possible intensity.



Question: How to know whether I'm on the winning road of the interview or how can I know whether they are desperately thinking to consider me for the post?

Answer: very simple, check your interview time, if your interview is going beyond the average time as you answering everything positively, its the same time and a sign that they are interested in you and you are on winning road.

Many students get scared when they are encountered for longer period and lost the battle by 1%. In the contrary it is same time to get relax and answer more. More questions= maximum chances.

Its a very simple logic, if you know there is a diamond where you are digging, then you have purpose to dig and you will dig it to get the diamond. Similarly, when they are digging you then understand that they are very closer to get the diamond, and this diamond is you. That's why calculate the situation by keeping the presence of mind.

Interviewing for a job can be one of the most uncomfortable events in your life. It is equally uncomfortable for many managers who must interview candidates for a position. Preparation can make the task easier.

Remember, basic thing of any interview is preparation - if you fail to prepare then you prepare to fail. Try to find out smartest answers to the following questions and then discuss with your friends or group of friends and filter the most catching and influencing answers. By doing so, you do 2 things, One- you will find impact answer with limited words. Second - you develop group discussions skills.

Here are some questions that are the most frequently asked,

  1. Describe your ideal job and/or boss.
  2. Why are you looking for a job? Why are leaving your current position?
  3. What unique experience or qualifications separate you from other candidates?
  4. Tell me about yourself.
  5. What are your strengths and weaknesses?
  6. Describe some of your most important career accomplishments.
  7. What are your short-term/long-term goals?
  8. Describe a time when you were faced with a challenging situation
    and how you handled it.
  9. What are your salary requirements?
  10. Why are you interested in this position? Our company?
  11. What would your former boss/colleagues say about you?
  12. What are the best and worst aspects of your previous job?
  13. What do you know about our company?
  14. What motivates you? How do you motivate others?
  15. Are you willing to relocate?




Winning Note 1: -
Remember to write a brief 'Thank You' note or a brief "SAYING" note to the person or people who interviewed you. You may be the only candidate who performed this small courtesy!

Winning Note 2: -
Use a single line "Catch-line" that describes you in an excellent way when asked about yourself.

Winning Note 3: -
While telling about salary expectation, avoid speaking like "greater than or less than $$$$(any amount)" or I expect $$$$(exact amount), such kind of answer will not please them instead say, "Anything in the range of 12000 to
14000 will be accepted."

Winning Note 4: -
Do personality assessment. You will get best personality assessment report at www.braindynamic.com .

  3. How interesting to you this position?

  22. What is your ideal job?
  23. With what kind of people do you like to work?
  24. In what kind of work environment do you like to work?
  25. What salary are you seeking?



As I told you before, these are the key question to win the interview. Practice it; explore new smart answers in limited words. When you prepare using this question then you have a key to unlock the door of your expectations. The reason I did not provided any answers because, when everything is ready then it's a cause to be lazy. Work with your mind and with your friends. You will find smartest answers in the world.
GO AHEAD
