Interview Tips

An interview is not something you should dread and lose sleep over. Look at it as a positive, mutual exchange of information and approach it with enthusiasm and confidence. Based on what we are looking for and from our own experiences, we have put together some interview tips.
Know the real you
  • We want to know the real you and not information that is present in your resume.
  • "Tell me about yourself..." This is often the first thing an interviewer asks.
  • This is a question, which can make even a well-prepared candidate stutter. However, if you keep in mind the fact that the interviewer is asking the question as an icebreaker, or for understanding your thought process you are interested in discussing it is an easy question to answer.
  • Therefore, you can make the most of this opportunity to summarize your capabilities and skills and position yourself as the best candidate for the vacancy.
  • Remember that this question can make or break your interview. Therefore, it is important that you do not exaggerate and stick to the truth.
Know the position, company and industry
Before your interview read the job description carefully to figure out how well you qualify for the job. Focus on traits that demonstrate your ability to perform well in the role. It is important that you update yourself with the recent successes of the organization. Familiarize yourself with some of the challenges faced by the industry. This will give you an idea of how to position yourself in terms of offering solutions.

Listening is just as important as answering questions. Therefore, it is important to pay attention, when the interviewer asks a question. If you are not paying attention, then even if you know the appropriate response to the question you will be confining yourself to giving a passable response. Listening well will also give you an opportunity to develop a rapport and engage with the recruiter.

Ask questions 
At the end of the interview, you will be given an opportunity to ask questions. Make use of this opportunity by asking insightful questions on the nature of work, what are the important KRA’s and how your performance will be measured.
On the day of the interview, remember to:
  • Plan to arrive 10 to 15 minutes early
  • Dress in a professional manner
  • Display a positive body language
  • Give honest and direct answers
Leave all negativity and present a cheerful demeanor. Relax and enjoy the HCL experience. Think of the interviewer as a team member trying to figure out a solution for a pressing problem.  

All the best!
