    What documents needed for a job interview at any private company?
  • #148272
    You have not mentioned what job at which level. It is a opened ended question, hence the list would be long

    Basically you would need to substantiate what you have said in the CV that has led to the interview letter being sent to you. The documents would be checked by various administration people before and after the interview.
    It is important to keep the documents in order. At times the interview panel asks for your file or specific details. For instance, if you say you were a university and state topper and the panel asks for the certificate, you can't be seen fumbling for it. Keep it simple and easily indexed in chronological order.

    1. Basic Identity proof documents: to verify that you are who you say you are.(PAN,Voter's ID, Ration card, Driving license)
    2. Age proof:
    3. Education proof: 12th, graduation, Post-graduation, Diplomas etc
    4. Expereince proof: The places you have worked in the past, trainee, apprentice, actual job
    5. Finance documents: Bank address/passbook, PAN card, old PF or salary certificate.
    6. Recent photographs
    7. Caste certifcate
    8. Extra-curricular events: certificates related to sports, medals, college honors.
    9. Research: research related papers and publications
    10. Presentations at conferences or meetings that are relevant.
    11. Of course the interview letter.
    Each company/firm would have a slightly different approach. You can call the HR team as introduce yourself, the interview date and ask them are there any specific documents you need to carry?

    When you are attending an interview in a Government Organisation or a private organisation you should carry all the certificates in original. It is advisable to keep one copy xerox of all certificates also with you. Some people may ask for Pass Port Size Photographs also. So it is better to keep those also with you. You have to carry a copy of your resume which you have sent to them when you have applied for the post. The other Documents require are as follows
    1. Date of Birth Certificate: Generally 10th class or SSC certificate will ho9ld good for this.
    2. Birth Certificate
    3..Provisional / Original certificate of all the examinations you have passed towards your educational qualification.
    4. Marks lists of all the examinations you have passed
    5. Transfer certificate and conduct certificate issued by the last studied institution.
    6. Certificates od any other part-time courses you have passed
    7. Caste certificate. if you are claiming any reservation
    8. NCC/NSS certificate if you are claiming any reservation,
    9. Any other certificates like extra circular activities related, any physically handicapped certificate
    10. The papers you have published if you have any.
    11. If you have any experience which you have claimed during application, a certificate showing your experience.
    12.If you are going for a government Job they may ask for NOC from the present employer. Whether this is required or not will be known from the advertisement they have given.
    I think these are the most common things you have to carry.

    Beware! I question everything and everybody.

    There are certain certificates essential to be produced during the process of interview and these documents are verified by the authorised officials of the company where you are likely to be interviewed. You have to preserve all such documents in a file so as to have these documents easily represented during the process of interview. The certificates required are enlisted below-
    1) Your date of birth - certificate, of course, your class ten certificate released by your Board would be sufficient.
    2) All other certificates which you have acquired during your studies.
    3) Migration - certificate if any.
    4) Caste - certificate if you belong to SC/ ST/OBC category.
    5) Any appreciation certificate you might have been rewarded for a particular game such as Foot - ball, Cricket, Volleyball etc by some recognised institution. This may also include as best speaker in any debate organised by your school.
    6) Aadhar - card.

    When you go for a job interview they will check and verify your credential for which you have to take all the basic documents with you.

    Your educational certificates and mark sheets, proof of date of birth, proof of identity like Aadhaar card, any specific diploma or certification course if done then the certificate for the same, backward class certificate if applicable and any sports achievement by you are the major documents you have to carry with you in original. If you have not submitted the copy of these certificates earlier while applying then you should take a xerox copy of all the important documents to give them at the spot.

    Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.

    During your interview, generally as per my experience and knowledge no one will ask your caste, date of birth, passport or other government-issued certificates/identity cards. They will ask only one government-issued identity card to know that whether it is you or any other person attending for the interview. You must show the original card as your id proof. Most of the times they will reject the color xerox of these id proofs.

    Generally, during the interview they will ask the following:

    1. Your curriculum vitae (CV) or resume.
    2. Previous experience letters/certificates - If applicable.
    3. Previous salary slips- If applicable.
    4. Educational Certificates.
    5. Any special courses' certificates if you have done like SAP, Oracle, SQL etc
    6. Any other certificates such as your achievements in the previous company, appreciation letters from managers, awards, etc. These are not mandatory but if you carry can be an additional benefit during the time of interview. Carry a passport size photograph (recommended). Carry all original certificates and make a set of xerox copies of all the valid documents you are providing at the time of interview. Also, take a print out of the interview letter if the HR department has emailed you.

    No MNC/private company till date has asked caste certificate during the time of interview. They will ask or ask you to fill in their form mentioning the caste only after you are selected. Asking caste certificate during the interview is considered an unethical practice. They may ask if you have it but it is not mandatory to show. Once you are selected then you need to provide additional certificates such as Aadhar card, PAN card, bank statements, passport etc. Most of the interviews in MNC's or private firms happen with just your CV and educational certificates. Rest of the proofs are to be shown only if you are selected and/or before giving you the offer letter.
