Facing Interviews Index
Facing Interviews is what we all have done or we are going to do. Many students come out successfully. Others fail there. Although facing interview is a tough task for all of us, we can come out successfully if we follow certain tactics and maintain cool composure. First of all we have to understand what the interviewing people want out of the students and what the students should expect from the interviewers.
An Interview :
Candidate (Raj Kiran) and Interviewer (CEO)
Raj Kiran : Good morning Sir.
CEO : Good morning. Please sit down, Mr. Raj Kiran. Well! I am Kishan Sharma The CEO of this company.
Raj Kiran : So glad to meet you Sir.
CEO : Good to meet you too. Your CV is very impressive. You have done well in your academics and have got through with flying colours!
Raj Kiran : Thank you very much Sir.
CEO : Well! Bright students like you generally proceed to foreign universities for higher studies. How come you didn't opt for it?
Raj Kiran : First of all, my parents couldn't afford it. Secondly, I didn’t want to as I believe Indian institutions offer quality education and it depends on the students to make the best use of it.
CEO : Well! You have done B.E. in Computer Engineering and have proceeded to do MBA and specialised in marketing instead of doing Masters in the same under graduation subject. Is there any particular reason for it?
Raj Kiran : Well! I felt a technical degree along with Master in marketing would help me move upwards in my career.
CEO : That is good thinking! Certainly that's why you are here for this interview. We are looking for fresher with such an educational combination to take on as trainees.
Raj Kiran : Thank you very much Sir. Well! May I know how long the training will be?
CEO : Training will be for six months. Initially it will be held in Mumbai. Later, trainees will be shifted to the regional offices for on-the-job training for another six months. Afterwards they will be placed in anyone of the regional offices.
Raj Kiran : Is there any exam to be passed at the end of the training sir?
CEO : No. No exam as such. But you will be assessed for your performance through the entire training period.
