DO's and DON'Ts to be followed at Personal Interview/PI

At present interview are being conducted at various B schools so it is important for you to check following list of Do’s and Don’ts
 
Interview DO’s
 
•√ Dress appropriately for the institute; err on the side of being conservative to show you take the interview seriously. Your personal grooming and cleanliness should be impeccable.
•√ Know the exact time and location of your interview; know how long it takes to get there, park, find a rest room to freshen up, etc.
•√ Arrive early; 10 minutes prior to the interview start time.
•√ Treat other people you encounter with courtesy and respect. Their opinions of you might be solicited during admission decisions.
•√ Offer a firm handshake, make eye contact, and have a friendly expression when you are greeted by your interviewer.
•√ Listen to be sure you understand your interviewer's name and the correct pronunciation.
•√ Even when your interviewer gives you a first and last name, address your interviewer by title Sir or Madam, until invited to do otherwise.
•√ Maintain good eye contact during the interview.
•√ Sit still in your seat; avoid fidgeting and slouching.
•√ Respond to questions and back up your statements about yourself with specific examples whenever possible.
•√ Ask for clarification if you don't understand a question.
•√ Be thorough in your responses, while being concise in your wording.
•√ Be honest and be yourself — your best professional self. Dishonesty gets discovered and is grounds for withdrawing admission offers and for rejection. You want a good match between yourself and your future college. If you get admitted by acting like someone other than yourself, you and your institute will both be unhappy.
•√ Treat the interview seriously and as though you are truly interested in the institute and the opportunity presented.
•√ Exhibit a positive attitude. The interviewer is evaluating you as a potential corporate employee or future manager.
•√ Have intelligent questions prepared to ask the interviewer. Having done your research about the institute in advance, ask questions which you did not find answered in your research.
•√ Evaluate the interviewer and the institute s/he represents. An interview is a two-way street. Conduct yourself cordially and respectfully, while thinking critically about the way you are treated and the values and priorities of the institute.
•√ Do expect to be treated appropriately. If you believe you were treated inappropriately or asked questions that were inappropriate or made you uncomfortable, discuss this the panel if you are given time to clear your mind by asking them questions else reach the admission co-coordinator of the institute or the director.
•√ Make sure you understand the institute's next step in the admission process; know when and from whom you should expect to hear next. Know what action you are expected to take next, if any.
•√ When the interviewer concludes the interview, offer a firm handshake and make eye contact. Depart gracefully.
•√ After the interview, make notes right away so you don't forget critical details.
 
Interview DON'Ts
 
•× Don't make excuses. Take responsibility for your decisions and your actions.
•× Don't make negative comments about previous professors or institute (or others).
•× Don't falsify application materials or answers to interview questions.
•× Don't treat the interview casually, as if you are just shopping around or doing the interview for practice. This is an insult to the interviewer and to the institute.
•× Don't give the impression that you are only interested in the institute because of its geographic location.
•× Don't give the impression you are only interested in salary you will get after the completion of the course.
•× Don't act as though you would take admission in any institute or are desperate for admission.
•× Don't be unprepared for typical interview questions. You may not be asked all of them in every interview, but being unprepared looks foolish.
•× Admission in a good institute can be hard work and involve frustrations; don't exhibit frustrations or a negative attitude in an interview.
•× Don't go to extremes with your posture; don't slouch, and don't sit rigidly on the edge of your chair.
•× Don't assume that a female interviewer is "Mrs." or "Miss." Address her as "Madam" unless told otherwise.
•× Don't chew gum or smell like smoke.
•× Don't allow your cell phone to sound during the interview. (If it does, apologize quickly and ignore it.) Don't take a cell phone call. Don't look at a text message.
•× Don't take your parents, your pet (an assistance animal is not a pet in this circumstance), spouse, fiancé, friends or enemies to an interview. If you are not grown up and independent enough to attend an interview alone, you're insufficiently grown up and independent for a job.
