You might be one among the aspiring freshers, attending placement tests, interviews etc. Fresher interviews are significantly different from those conducted for laterals from other companies and hence the challenges are different too. In fact, the elimination in fresher interviews is higher when compared to interviews for experienced. Let us discuss three common mistakes to avoid so that you can avoid being eliminated in an effective way.
Mistake 1 : Being Too Submissive
Most youngsters start thinking the person interviewing as someone directly from skies landed to bless with a job. If you too think like this, you are making yourself uncomfortable as well propagating the mood to the person interviewing you. Yes, not too many people on interview panel like you to be too submissive by accepting whatever is being said to you and not speaking a word. Instead, they really want confident and smart people who can politely put forth the points without hurting anybody's sentiments. For example, if you feel your answer to a question is correct as against perceived by your panel, you can politely put forth points supporting your answers.
Mistake 2 : Inviting Sympathy
This is one of the deadliest mistakes to make. When asked about reasons for poor grades in semesters, some tend to give reasons like I met with an accident, I was suffering from severe asthma etc. Though these reasons may be legitimate, believe, not too many people on interview panel are going to like these kinds of answers. Hence, try with other smart answers like, you were interested in other subjects that you had scored well and got little lower scores in the subjects about which the question is raised.
Mistake 3 : Not Putting Forth Your Questions At The End
Generally, at the end of any interview, you would be asked if you have any questions before leaving the room. Most youngsters get too submissive again and immediately say "No" giving an impression that they are ready to work for the lifetime without wages :). This is not the way to go about. Take your time, think about the doubts you would be getting regarding the opportunity, the roles you would be put in, the technology of work etc.
