Manasi first impressions are extremely important, so demonstrate confidence right away, greet each person you meet with a friendly handshake and warm smile. Stand tall, make eye contact, and give a firm handshake and a smile when you meet the interviewer. Managers want to hire people they'll enjoy working with, so show you are approachable and have a positive disposition. Employers want to know that you are qualified for a position, but they also want to know how well you’ll fit in with the company culture. The only way to assess this is to get a sense of your personality. That said, there's a fine line between being engaging, amusing, and overdoing it. What’s important is to show the interviewer that you're personable and easy to get along with, managers don’t like having to manage difficult employees.

So, what's the best way to showcase your personality during an interview. Basically, relax and be yourself. By coming into the interview feeling calm and collected, you will be able to focus on letting your personality, rather than your nerves, come through. Practice answering common interview questions beforehand to boost your confidence. Find a friend or fellow student who’s willing to act as the interviewer and read the questions to you so that you can practice answering out loud. Also consider employing some relaxation techniques (like deep breathing or meditation) right before the interview. Coming to the interview relaxed and prepared will help you to feel at ease and to focus on putting your best foot forward. Keep in mind that interviewers want to see the real you and how you react under pressure. By remaining honest but polite, and by appearing composed during the meeting, you'll highlight your strengths and ability to work well as part of a team, even in trying situations.

The best job interviews often feel like a conversation Manasi

1. Start with Research: You probably did some research before applying, but now is the time to kick your efforts into high gear. go through social media and the company’s website for insight into workplace culture, current projects, and future goals.
2.Research the Interviewer: Search LinkedIn for the interviewer’s profile.
3.Prepare Your Answers: Always prepare the general HR & recruitment answers. I.e, your strengths, weaknesses, career goals...etc. practice your interview answers out loud or even do a mock interview. Say your responses aloud until they flow from the tongue.
4. Prepare Questions to Ask: Thinking of the right questions to ask is an important part of job interview preparation; make it thoughtful & professional. Such as:
*If I’m hired, what are the three most important things you will want me to accomplish during my first six months at the company?
*What are the biggest challenges of this job?
*What kinds of people fit best with the company culture?
5. Plan Your Outfit & wear your smile !
