Interview Tips

in Job Advices

Interview blues are quite common among freshers. Please try to understand that your job interview is a meagre assessment of some of your abilities rather than yourself. You need to understand your own weaknesses and strengths before entering the interview room. Try your best to keep your weaknesses out of your mind. In a situation when you face intriguing questions try to answer in a meter of fact way rather than misleading your interviewer. It is better to take the interviewer out of the question to one of the areas where you are comfortable to discuss. You need to make sure your answers show you in your best light; give shape to the truth so that it works for you.

You should read your CV and make sure you can remember all information you have provided to your prospective employer. Answering questions about a previous job might sound simple, but in the heat of the moment it's surprisingly easy to forget a technical term or an important date, and hesitation or contradictory statements can ruin everything by giving the impression that you are ill prepared or, worse still, not telling the truth.

Its also important to do a bit of research on your prospective employer and its area of specialization. Most information can be found on the employer's website. If you have done your research well and you know how your talent and experience can fit those of your employer's need. With that homework, you will be in a winning position when you are asked why you should be hired for the position.

At the end of an interview it's quite common to be asked if you have any questions. Your research about the job and the company would help you then to show your skill and to tell your employer that you care for them.

It's quite common to feel deflated after an interview. Even if you did not do well in the interview it does not take you anywhere if you simply blame yourself. Rather you should think how could you improve on your next. To meet a friend or to go to a movie is the best way to take the worry out of your mind.

Happy Interviewing and Good Luck!

in Job Advices

Many college graduates suddenly plunged into a career often struggle to keep pace with the new life. Also, people a few months into their first real
jobs start worrying about future. These are normal and you should continue for several months to get used to the new life. However, if such job blues persist you need to check if you are in a right place.

How to access if you are in a right place? Please check the jobs of your seniors. Are the jobs of senior members appealing to you? If you feel they are struggling and are out of place, you are probably not in the right place.

You should find a senior member in the company with whom you can make friendship to answer your queries. You may realize that he or she has gone through the same worries but later was satisfied with the job.

However, please understand that you should be prepared to accept some difficult aspects of
working life. Changing a job is not often the only solution as you will face similar situation in other jobs too. For entry-level
positions sometimes you may be asked to do jobs,such as data-entry and form
  that are not up-to your educational standard, Consider those initial assignments as a mater of routine work and suggest your boss some challenging problems which can be assigned to you. Don't worry if you are criticised. What should concern you
is if your boss criticizes you personally, rather than your work.

Sometimes, though, a chosen field may prove to be a bad fit and does not interest you. In that case you need to contact a career agency to find a suitable job that interests you.

Leaving a job sometimes leave a person with mixed
feelings. Even the worst jobs usually have something
good to attach yourself with the job.
It is better that you get along with your new job and do not compare your present situation with the past.
