  • Prepare yourself: If you don’t know your material ahead of time, you will have less to contribute and will understand the discussion less. Research some background information on your topic if you are given it ahead of time.
  • Be confident: If you aren’t confident with yourself, you’ll be scared of sharing your opinions. You need to trust yourself and others and you need to feel confident in your thoughts. Share your opinions- it doesn’t matter what other people think as long as your thoughts matter to you.
  • Choose Magazines that are Rich in Content: Always opt for magazines that are content rich and not just full of advertisements. Often magazines have columns which are promoting a particular institute etc. Avoid such magazines, do some research and buy the best that will be beneficial for you in the long run.
  • Be Aware of Topics that are repeated often: there are topics which re-appear with minute changes and minor variations. Be aware of such topics well in advance so that you have ample time to prepare for the same. For example, the issues of terrorism, gender inequality, poverty, Ayodhya conflict, liberalisation and privatisation, reservations in educational institutions etc often appear as GD topics. Make sure you know these topics well and can come up with some unique, insightful points along with dates, stating facts.
  • Work on your Communication Skills: You should be well versed in your communication skills. You should have a good vocabulary and a decent command over English. Much before your actual group discussion, rehearse well. You can sit with a group of friends and choose a topic and indulge in a friendly banter. Not only will this increase your knowledge, you will be a better speaker by the time it is time for your GD.
  • Form a debate: Group discussion is weighing the pros and cons of a debatable topic. The group discussions are mostly a way to see if how people’s views are different, and how they perceive things. It’s also comparing answers to others.
  • Be as natural as possible: Do not try to be someone you are not. Be yourself. In an attempt to be someone else, your opinions will not be portrayed.
  • Body Gestures are very important. The panelists observe the way you sit and react in the course of the discussion. In a GD, sit straight and Be confident; avoid leaning back on to the chair or knocking the table with pen or your fingers.
  • Be assertive yet humble: You need to stick to your values and beliefs, but learn to respect the values and opinions of others too.
  • Be the first and also the Last to Speak: As mentioned earlier, initiating a GD is an advantage. Closing it too also adds brownie points. If you can grab the opportunity to close the discussion, then you should summarise it. If the group has not reached a conclusion try concluding it .Accomplishing in a group discussion is like driving a car. You have the control and power to accelerate or brake as per the situation you come across to reach to your destination. Just try to be that conscientious driver in a GD.
  • You should be aware when to apply brakes or accelerate depends on the conversation to turn onto your side.

Golden Opinions

  • Do Your Research Learn as much as possible about the company you’ll be interviewing with, and know as much about the post. If the company has retail outlets in your area, visit one. If they produce software products, look them over. Talk to people who know the company, explore the business section of the library to get information about the industry, the company and its management. Look over annual and quarterly reports and check the trade publications for the latest information available.
  • Prepare a List of Questions to ask them It is natural for you to have some questions about the position for which you are being interviewed. Be ready to ask them. You won’t likely need to ask every one of them, since much of the information may be covered in the interview process itself. But you should be prepared to find out the specifics.
  • Dress Professionally Make sure your first impression is a good one by looking professional and confident. Even when the corporate culture is more casual, it doesn’t hurt to be the best dressed person in the room during an interview.
  • Arrive Fashionably Early You should be at the destination and reported to the receptionist well before the interview. Fifteen minutes early is a good rule of thumb. To make sure you don’t arrive at the last minute, go over your travel route in advance, and even drive it once to test the route so you are absolutely confident you know how long it will take.
  • Maintain a Friendly and Professional Demeanour Be accessible and open, but always professional. Listen carefully to the questions being asked, and make relevant and concise responses. Stay on course with your answers, and provide specific examples whenever appropriate to reinforce the points you are making.
  • Ask Permission to Take Notes It implies that you are very interested in the position and the company, and it shows clearly that you are well organized, detail oriented and thorough
  • Answer Confidently Even the toughest questions can be handled with poise and confidence. Don’t try to hide weaknesses in your experience or difficult relationships in your work history. Never dwell on the negative, and put a positive, but honest spin on things.
  • Things to Avoid Try to avoid giving out too much personal information (i.e., financial problems, marital status, children, etc.).Avoid questions about salary and benefits until the job is offered. Don’t talk too much. Bring a few pointed, well thought out questions regarding the position (i.e., duties, responsibilities, territory size, commission structure, potential for advancement.)Don’t be late. If at all possible, be early at least 5-10 minutes prior to the interview. Don’t brag. It is fine to bring a “brag book” with you to the interview that lists your accomplishments. However, try not to rely on it. Use it as a guide to show the interviewer what you can do for their company

Interview Tips

  • Your appearance should express that you have taken the interview sincerely. Do not try to turn up in the interview in a manner that does not suit you.
  • Plan to arrive on time or a few minutes early. Late arrival for a job interview is never excusable. Please make sure the phone is not busy (or engaged) about 10 minutes before the scheduled interview time.
  • Have a pen and paper ready to take notes during the interview with your resume and verify the resume experience.
  • Keeping up with company news is hard, especially if you’re interviewing with multiple places at once. That’s why Google Alerts is a savior; it’s a tool that emails you anytime a new story appears for a specific term. That way, you learn about current events without searching for them.
  • Nowadays, 91% of employers search your social media for any red flags. While most people tell you to watch every single thing you upload, there’s a much easier solution. Use Social Sweepster, an app that detects pictures of red solo cups, beer bottles, and other “suspicious” objects. It even detects profanity from your past posts!
  • Express your viewpoint and be professional. If you do not agree with something the Interviewer has said do not reject it as invalid. Learn to understand their point of view even if it conflicted with your own. This does not mean that you need to accept their point of view.
  • Create impression that you are dynamic in work, and open for learning. It is a very good sign for convincing the interviewer.
  • Listen carefully and then answer, Do not rush up with your answers even before the question is uttered fully. Listen carefully and Give answers with tension free mind you may even request clarification on the question if you really want.
  • During the job interview try to relax and stay as calm possible. Smile. Remember that your body language says as much about you as your answers to the questions.
  • Do not discuss about the pay, unless the interviewer asks.
  • The first question in most interviews is” Tell us about yourself” or “walk me through your resume”. Make sure you have an effective 2-3 minutes answer prepared.
  • Never apply in non-core companies with longer than one page resume.
  • Highlight any special training or certifications you have.
  • You need to end the interview with. “Thanks for your time. It was nice talking to you and I look forward to being a part of your project”.

Resume Tips

  • Things to keep in mind before starting out with your resume: While preparing your resume, first and foremost consideration is your typography – the font and the size.
  • Next ensure usage of good resume keywords.
  • Information that your resume must contain: Updated and correct contact information – your full name, address, phone number and email address. Educational qualifications in chronological order – it is better to have this information associated with the names of the institutes that furnished the degrees or certificates. Mention professional qualification and/or training if undertaken.
  • Length and Formulation of the Resume: Resume should not be more than 1 Page. There are steps in which you must proceed in order to structure your resume as per planning. Avoid unessential capitalization or use of bold letters.
  • Use effective titles for headings: Remember this is where you will be judged. You may add an objective statement. Take care to construct the lines. It should not be a paragraph. One or two lines are sufficient. Try not to sound too vague. It serves as a pointer to the position you want to see yourself in. Do not use generic soft skills like ‘hard worker’, ‘team player’, ‘dynamic’ etc. Surely the employers expect these of you but do not like to read them on the resume.
  • No Grammar mistakes: Pay attention to sentence constructions and grammar. Ensure that there is zero grammatical error in the document. Make an effort to find out the appropriate expressions and spellings. Here is where you make an impression. Be formal and polite in approach. Also be precise in your statements. Remember that your training and accomplishments must have credibility in form of a diploma or certificate.
  • Be Positive: Above all in your resume and interview-you must be positive. Therefore, leave off the negatives and irrelevant points. Focus on the duties that do support your objective and leave off irrelevant personal information like your race, weight, and height.
  • White Space is important: White space is important. Open up the newspaper and take note of which ads first catch your attention. Are they the ads that are jammed full of text, or are they ads that have a large amount of unused space (“white space”). This is done to grab your attention, as readers are always attracted to open areas.
  • Start Applying: Now, you’re ready! Start applying-Apply for some jobs that appear to be above your qualifications, apply to positions that are a match, and apply to positions which may be below your level. Why? Perhaps the position below will turn out to be more than it appeared once you interview for them, or perhaps once you have your foot in the door you can learn of other opportunities. If nothing else, interviewing more and more will increase your interviewing skills. It will decrease your nervousness, and increase your skills for facing tough questions.
