					Some effective Job Interview Tips for the Employer

Please read this on before you call it a make or break situation. Desperation doesn't help in most
real-life situations, as it often seems in your favourite Hollywood formula. If you couldn't strike a deal so
far in all those interview boards you faced, and still you feel that it's not the wrong eligibility criterion
you are banking on, then you must have been doing some silly mistakes, some avoidable unforced
errors while you faced those interviewers who in turn eventually have to recruit someone like you, and
it was their necessity in the first place, not yours, and that is why they have been spending all the money
and effort in placing a recruitment notice, in setting up an interview board and so on. It is the
employers' necessity that someone impresses them right away, so that they can cut the crap more easily
and get back to business, so they are more than eager to be impressed, and only some easy job
interview tips can solve their problems and eventually yours, too.



There is a whole list of job interview tips that you get to read both in the online and offline media. Did
you ever notice that there are certain common points that they all mention and insist on? Let us
reiterate that the recruiters want you to be



     Punctual; don't make them wait for you when they don't even know you. Punctuality is often seen
as an indicator of sincerity.



    Well-dressed; mind your attire. Business decorum requires you to be non-casual, or even formal to
some extent, for you would represent the business office however big or small. Formal wear never fails.



     Articulate, so that you sell yourself well; for at the end of the day all missions of a business boils
down to selling, whether ideas, service or products. You know yourself best, and if you can't sell yourself
– the product you know best, how can one entrust you to sell their products or services that you may or
may not know in full? Communication skill is an absolute necessity.



     Realistic but non-cynical; never show them a pie in the sky. Promise only that much that you can
deliver right away, without any hiccups.



     Assertive; which only means that you know your own value. In case you know the value of your
own, of your skill-set, and of your personality, then you already know how to value others, and how to
protect their values. If you undervalue or disrespect yourself, you can't possibly ever know what other
peoples or business's self-esteem is, and you become the weak link in the entire production chain.



Online Job interview tips would normally talk about formulas, the 4 P's and so on. Remember that
Management is a pseudo-science and here any formula works or nothing works at all, more so when we
talk about the human resources management. It all depends on the right attitude when and where do
you apply those formulas. It's all about timing, and presence of mind. But then, isn't it all about being a
good human being? Precisely, yes! The recruiters are not really hiring your bare skill set, unless you are a
geek in the underworld business or something like that. They are intending to hire you, the whole
person, who in turn would become the face of the company some day. Never stress hard on your
qualifications, or papers, though keeping an extra copy of all those papers would never harm while you
face the interview panel. They might need them, even though you don't.



So, here are the effective job interview tips that we had to offer, and yes we forgot to mention that
apart from being a good human being, you have to learn to be yourself; without which, no job interview
tips would ever work.
