Having interviewed many candidates in the last year, here is a quick scoop on what we look for in a candidate.
Top 5 Qualities We Seek!
- A well-groomed candidate – They say the first impression is a lasting one. In my experience, I have seen interviewees coming to the interview in entirely casual attire, which does have a good impression. So, dress well!
- Has done their homework about us - As an interviewer, I have encountered many instances where candidates do not go through the company’s website or research before the interview, indicating their keenness in wanting a job. Therefore, this is something to be mindful of.
- Maintain good body language – How you present yourself during an interview is as important as what you say. Your body language indicates whether you are serious about the job.
- Make eye contact
- Shake hands with the interviewer.
- Do not slouch; sit straight but remember not to be too stiff
- Use hand gestures when communicating (if that makes you feel comfortable)
- Do not fidget or play with your hair or clothes during the interview
- Someone who can Communicate clearly – Clear communication is often tested during interviews. The way you communicate can be a deal-maker or deal-breaker for you. Clear communication is of utmost importance for any discussion.
- Active listening is essential
- Choose your words carefully
- Avoid using informal language
- Frame precise and crisp sentences to answer the questions.
- Someone who asks relevant questions – One of the mistakes made by interviewees that I have seen is not asking questions toward the end of the interview. Asking well-thought and relevant questions can be a great way to display motivation, curiosity, and willingness to learn. Asking questions can also help you understand the work culture and environment of the company you have applied for.
These are the 5 qualities that you can work on; it’s not Rocket Science. All you need to do is have confidence and polish these qualities, which will help you ace the interview.
I hope that was a learning for you!
Keep striving for excellence wherever you go!
