A job interview is an exciting but nerve-wracking experience that can leave even the most confident candidates uneasy. Candidate feel pressured when they’re interviewing for a job; sweaty palms, increased heart rate, fidgeting are some common symptoms. It happens to all of us at one point or another.
Being well-prepared is by far the best way to ease the pre-interview jitters and show the interviewer your best side. There are some tips by which you can overcome your mistakes.

Because most of the candidate are numb when interviewer ask “What do you know about our company?” We’re not just talking about quickly reading the company’s ‘About Us’ page on their website. To make a great impression in your interview, you should conduct some in-depth research into what the company does , its culture and its future goals and ambitions.
This means going to their corporate websites, Linked In, Facebook and Wikipedia. General searches will also uncover interesting links that can reveal what the corporate culture is.
2. Dress appropriately
The first impression you make on a potential employer can make a big difference. The first judgment an interviewer makes is going to be based on how you look and what you are wearing. That’s why it’s always important to dress professionally for a job interview.
Most Candidates wear formal but the Combination of Pants & Shirts are so unusual which Directly give a negative impression, and moreover if candidate is wearing good combination of formals but the shoes is not polished or wearing lots of accessories also gives a wrong impression.
Make sure your clothes are clean, ironed and stain free; check your planned outfit the night before to avoid any last minute panics. Not only will a smart appearance make a good impression on your potential new employer but it will also ensure that you feel confident and ready to nail your interview.
- Prepare Some Basic Answer
If it’s been a while since your last interview, search online for some commonly asked interview questions to get you thinking about your answers.
These could include “Why do you want to work for us?”, “What makes you a good candidate for this job,” “What are your strengths and weaknesses?”, “Why did you leave your last job?” or “Tell me a bit about yourself.”
4. Be Honest
Sometime situation arise when you feel like saying truth may leads you to the rejection, eg: failing in project and candidate choose to lie and which results into; the candidate stuck in their words and nervousness comes on face.
Being open about your weaknesses can also show confidence in you as a candidate, however always remember to end this on a positive note by identifying solutions for any weaknesses you may have.
5. Be on Time
There is no excuse for being late. You don’t want a your interviewer to be annoyed before the interview even starts; so do whatever it takes to be on time.
A job interview isn’t a party, so arriving casually late won’t score you any points. Like anyone at work, your interviewer is most likely in the midst of a busy workday, so show them their time is valuable to you. Being late tells others that you’re self-centred, disorganized, rude or all three. Make sure you show up at least 10-15 minutes in advance and notify reception upon your arrival.
6. Ask Questions
The moment when your interviewer says, “Do you have any questions?” can leave your mind completely blank if you haven’t prepared.
Asking the right questions during a job interview is almost as important as giving good answers. The questions you ask will show your level of interest in the job.
