Dressing Up for an Interview

One close step before getting admission is the interview process. While some chills just with the idea of getting on to the process, it is just natural to feel daunted and nervous. However, no one gets an admission to a Bschool without going through it. It is better to get prepared. The more prepared a candidate is, the more confident he will be.

During the Apllication process, it is better to always keep a neat record. .  Maintaining a composure is always looked up to. Professionalism must always be maintained when an college calls to arrange an interview. Speaking clearly and thanking them are good points to consider.

Once the interview is set, the first step is to have good research about the college and the position applied for, highlighting the key points for one to be seeking admission. Looking at possible resources could include the colleges website and brochures and any other data they have provided, or even a “drive by” of the college.

Thinking of the possible questions help prepare for possible answers. Mock interviews can be very helpful. Being more prepared means more confident. Although, being prepared does not mean sounding too rehearsed. It is better to sound comfortable, natural, friendly, clear and confident.

Getting there would take much of the time when unaware. It is best to know the exact location to avoid getting there late. The ideal time would be arriving at the place ten or fifteen minutes ahead of the scheduled interview.

Dressing appropriately for the interview gives the college the idea of who the applicant is. A lousy dresser has less chances of getting admission. It is better to be presentable and professional rather than being casual.

During the interview, one or more persons might be an interviewee. If there are more than one person, it is a panel interview. The most appropriate way to deal initially is to shake hands with each panel member before the interview starts. Getting nervous is but normal. However, maintaining the calmness, friendliness helps boost confidence. In a panel interview, talking with just one person is a big NO-NO. The best thing to do is to involve them all.

Speaking clearly would be most appreciated. Trying to sell so hard might not be appealing. The employers might find it to arrogant and aggressive. Answer what are being being asked.

When the interview is done, thank the interviewers. Even if the interview sucked, it is better to be polite. This might even turn up to something unexpected.
