Interview Do’s and Don’ts

Before the Interview

Learn all that you can about the company and job you are applying for. You can get basic information about the company through their website or from their office. Once you have this information you can use it to think about exactly why you want the job, where you fit in and what special skills you’ll be able to offer.

Perform a practice interview with a friend or family member using the information you gathered. You can even come up with a few questions you would like to ask your interviewer. Employers like it when you can speak intelligently about the company.

Plan your route to the interview and remember to leave early. You want to give yourself enough time to be able to deal with traffic jams or anything else that may make you late. It is best to arrive at the interview about 5 to 10 minutes early.

At The Interview

Look your best. A coat and tie for men and a suit or conservative dress for women is recommended. Men should be clean shaven with a neat haircut. Women should have their hair done accordingly. Make sure your fingernails are cut and your breath is okay. Do not chew gum or candy during the interview.

Bring a copy of your resume and some paper and a pen in case you want to take notes. Shake hands with everyone to and try to look them in the eye. It is important to speak clearly when responding to questions. Try not to use slang or profanity.

Pay close attention. It is also important to express to your potential employer that you are very interested in the job and that you are confident in your ability to perform the job.

Answer questions honestly and keep up a positive attitude. Employers like to hire positive people so try not to badmouth an old job or boss.

Ask your interviewer follow up questions that use the information you have been given during the interview. Now is a good time to use those questions you came up with while researching the company.

Remember to thank your interviewer for their time and to shake hands again.

Dear Pulkit
Hope Natisha Haseeb has cleared your doubt. If you shake hand well and good or otherwise also never mind. No matter they may be having the idea of what will be your tension and pressure during the interview and obviously they will understand.
With warm regards

There is lot to learn in corporate culture pulkit as per the royal standards dont initiate for the handshake with a senior till time he does so, alse a verbal and a polite thankyou note is good enough to push off..
Dear Pulkhit, Be confident, nothing wrong and negative of exit hand shake. You should, it does not errode any thing. If not some cases damges some extent might be. Regds nk900
Dear All,
I remember reading in some books on manners, that always the senior should initiate a handshake. And when shaking hands with the opposite sex, the female only should initiate it. If the MD's body language doesn't reveal his intention to shake hands, it is better to leave the scene by saying a warm thank you, as mentioned by 'Propellant'

Yes you should.
Shaking hands shows that you are confident and professional. The way you behave in the interview reflects how you will behave with other people in the company and the company clients.
Saying that only the senior person should initiate a handshake, or that a man should not initiate with a woman, might have been true 100 or even 50 years ago. In today's corporate world things no longer work this way.

I completely agree with the views expressed by Propellant Consultant. I also feel that after the interview, one should with folded hand in "Namestey" form politely say Thankyou Sir and come out of the room. While coming out of the room, one should also ensure that he/she should walk back by facing the inteviewer.

Shaking hand with the interviewer should be on the intention of the interviewer; the applicant may judge whether the interviewer is willing to shake hand or not (at the conclusion if the interviewer stands up so its better to initiate and shake hand and on contrary if the interviewer did not stand then you may thank them for given you time and opportunity of interview and do not shake hand). In case the interviewer is a female then it would be much better to wait if she wants to shake hand. ethically its not preferrable to initiate shaking hand to a female.
