Answer Job Interview Questions :

The Entrance

The long wait is over and you are finally called in to meet the interviewers. This is the acid test. This is what you have been preparing for. The time is now. The time is here. If the door to the interview room is closed, it is polite to knock before you enter. Some interviewers may ask you to enter while others may not. If after a knock you do not hear an invitation to enter, you should knock a second time. And if you are not invited even after that, you should politely open the door and ask if you may enter.

While entering, you should remember that 75% of employment decisions are based on the first impression. That impression is made in the first five seconds and depends on how you look and carry yourself. Therefore, you should walk erect and confidently while entering the room, at a reasonable pace that is neither a run (fast) or slow (snail’s pace). Your body must be erect, your shoulders thrown back and your head held high. Under no circumstances should you stoop, put your hands in your pockets or be hesitant.

You should have a smile on your face. It lightens the room and brings you into the interviewer’s circle. You should be prepared to wish everyone. It is courteous to do so. You should also be prepared to shake hands. The handshake should be firm, never limp or bone-crushing.


After you have entered, you will be requested to sit down. As a matter of courtesy, you should not sit until you have been invited to do so. And when you do there are a few things you should remember.

Sit erect. You are at an interview and persons are assessing you. You should not lounge in the chair or lean back.

You must be relaxed. If you are not relaxed you will not be able to present yourself in the best light.

Do not cross your legs. If you do, you will not be as alert as otherwise.

Keep your hands in your lap. Do not move them unnecessarily. Crossing your hands suggests that you are on the defensive, while gripping the arms of a chair means you need some support.

Seat yourself in such a way that you maintain good eye contact.

Do not sit on the edge of the chair. You could fall off.
