1. Before going to interview, try to gather some knowledge about company. Use company website for this purpose and read its mission and vision statement, Name of head of department, company head offices and regional offices. etc etc.
2. Practice some question interview questions like what are your strength and weaknesses, why do you want to join us? Why should we hire you? It is better to practice in front of mirror.
3. Always reach on time. Be confident. Wear professional attire and be natural, Do not Pose, Do not Lie.
4. Send thank-you note after interview.
Hope you will easily pass interview.

#AnonymousRecently I attended a campus recruitment. I was able to get through GD where only 30 students were selected out of 150. In personal interview round which was the last round, I tried to do all the above things you suggested, He was an HR and as he had a deep knowledge of the HR terms, he went on asking some HR terms to check my knowledge in HR, But i am into HR specialization from past 4 months and It was for the first time i heard those terms of HR. I could not answer his questions. And i was not selected in PI round when rest of my friends from other specialization were selected.

There are certain assumptions in the mind of the interviewee as well as interviewer that leads to the success of the job interview translating to you landing a job. There are certain qualities that are being expected out of candidates in general as well as with respect to a particular role. You need to be aware of those. This can be done by doing some research on the company culture, knowing the expectations from that particular role, and brushing up your technical as well as soft skills for that interview.
More actually goes into the preparation part than most people would accept. But, the truth is, "Well prepared is half-won!". Hence, putting the top 3 sayings that would relate to this:
* Know thy enemy (or rather, the situation here)
* Prepare for the worst and expect the best (know what you need to prepare for and do it full swing)
* Practice makes perfect (you have to know your strengths and weakness)
Having said that, you can imagine this akin to walking. You may fall, but you never, ever stop walking for that sake. You get up, dust yourself, and keep taking those next steps which are the most crucial. To reiterate, do not stop when faced with adversity since this is not the last job and if you did not get it, then definitely the job suitable for you is still waiting elsewhere.
Moreover, if you are in Chennai or planning to visit around 3rd week of November, am conducting a workshop on this very same topic. You are welcome to register and attend.

I understand that and good luck towards your endeavour.
Your showing interest in the whole thing and trying to make a difference is what will help you. Attitude is something to take you high up if held in the proper regard.
Hence, my wishes that you do gain knowledge in the know-how and make it big.
