How can I impress in Personal Interview ?
An interview ( PI ) lasts several minutes and at times, it can go on for an hour; however, this duration is extremely short, given that you need to answer the interviewer’s questions correctly and at the same time, impress the interviewer. Some things that catch the attention of the interviewer are your dressing style, the way you carry yourself and the way you talk. Even though you are attending the interview ( PI ) to gain admission into an MBA institute, it is important that you dress in a professional manner. Also, men should ensure that their hair is neat and short and women with long hair should tie their hair.
→ Apart from dressing in a professional manner, aspiring MBA students should carry themselves with confidence. Walk into an interview room with confidence; shake the hand(s) of the interviewer(s) in a firm manner; and talk in a convincing manner.
→ The aim of any MBA institute is to groom individuals into effective leaders, and the interview is a platform for lecturers of an MBA institute to identify students who are worthy of an MBA education and those who can be groomed into leaders of tomorrow.
→ Last but not least, you have to impress the interviewer(s) by answering the questions correctly. Interviewers may ask analytical questions to test your problem solving skills. So, instead of answering in a hurry, take some time to understand the problem and then show the interviewer how you arrived at the answer.
→ Other questions might be open-ended, where the interviewer(s) would be keen to know your views on an issue. So, read widely before the interview and ensure that you are aware of what is happening in the business world and the political scene.
→ First impressions count; therefore, you should ensure that you are dressed well, carry yourself with confidence and talk in a logical manner to impress the interviewer(s) in your first interview itself.
→ Studies have shown that the first impression is made in seven seconds; so, right from the time you enter the interview room, exude confidence and you will be one step closer to securing a place in the MBA institute of your choice.
