1. SMILE :-

This is the essential prerequisite to any communication in the

professional world as in everyday life.

2. BE SHORT :-

All recruiters will ask you to summarize your profile and experiences. Present your point briefly and in relation to the proposed position.


Speak about your initial education, it is a small but important point. Then talk about your experience from past to present.


Why you chose your university education, your first job. For each change, explain "why you left" and "why you chose your new employer".


About what you have gained from each experience, project, … both personally and professionally.


About what motivates you. The situations, products, environments, personalities, etc. And explain why.


About the position that is to be filled. Ask the key questions in the first interview. Ask the more detailed questions in the following interviews.


And Smile again, this is the end of the interview..!
