Interview Helper :
You must remember that the best-qualified person does not necessarily get the job. It is one who presents himself / herself confidently, speaks well and sells himself / herself at the interview. And this can be despite the fact that others may have better qualifications and more experience. The person who makes the interviewer believes that he has that extra magic and that the company cannot afford not to have him / her, is the one who will get the job. The extra magic is really preparation. Successful persons will tell you that to succeed there is no substitute for hard work. Similarly for a good interview there is no substitute for preparation.
The first point I would like to stress is that you must be choosy regarding the job/position that you are applying for. Apply for only those that interest you. Do not apply willy-nilly for all those that are advertised in the hope that you will land one. You may land it but hate the work and every day would be drudgery. On the other hand if you are in a job that you enjoy, you will look forward to going to work every day and love every minute of it. My friend once mentioned to me, “If you can make your hobby your work, you will never have to work again."
The point I am attempting to make is that you should apply only for a job that excites you. Otherwise you will not be passionate about it and will not be as successful as you would otherwise be.
Look at some individuals who chose an alternative career and became enormously successful. Ranjan Kapur, the former Chief Executive Officer of O&M in India began life as a banker with Citibank. A.D. Singh, the enormously successful restaurateur, is an Engineer. Shekhar Kapur, the film director (of Elizabeth among others) & producer, is a Chartered Accountant. The career that you choose must be one that you are passionate about. You must look forward to it. It must consume your thoughts and you must dream of it at night.
However there are times when, due to pressure, you take on a job that does not interest you. In such circumstances you should keep looking until you fmd the job that you want.
The subsequent chapters will help you prepare for an interview to get the job you want. It will tell you how to seek job opportunities, the likely questions you may be asked, how interviews are conducted, how you should present yourself and every other aspect of interviews. The intention is to ensure that
you get the job you want.
