Interview - The Best TeacherIf you look at the interview as your potential teacher you will learn a lot. After a considerable amount of time spent with people around us, We don't get feedback from them very often as they always understand us whether it is a co-worker or a family member, that is where naturally one gets into their comfort zone. There are so many reasons for finding a new job but I always see it as breaking the comfort zone to escape yourself from the rust out. Even though positive results from the interviews make one better, negative results always make them stronger, if you are good enough to crack a job with few interviews ' hats off! '. But remember your skills, situations, organizations need, everything favored at a right time and you landed a job. Not everyone is good to learn from negative interview results as people tend to develop some sort of inferiority complex after a considerable amount of NO's. You can learn only if you could freeze the interview moments to think about it later so that you will get clues to enhance your technical or presentation skills. Always look for reactions and facial expressions of the interviewer or the panel to see how they react to your responses. Studying the organization by doing enough research before going to an interview is the best practice as this is not a big deal in this era of advanced internet and social media.
Before appearing to any interview you should have something in mind that you are not the only star in the sky, if you get selected you get an address of identity using which people can tag you in the huge galaxy. If not, you will get a better place to earn or learn to progress further in your career. From my first interview, I have had numerous lessons learned. I would always stick with a point the feedbacks you will be getting in response to an interview will take you one step ahead if you stay positive. I could say I am good at cracking interviews, I got a better job whenever
I wanted to move on but it was not always the same. Before starting on my own I have appeared for interviews while doing my last job. I cracked the first job but opted out as I was in a dilemma of a better-salaried job for a while or starting my own company. Every interview I appeared after that was not very successful that is where I have realized that I was overconfident which may not give favorable results. I considered that as a positive sign and kick-started my business which I always wanted to do.
One golden rule of achieving anything is 'Consistency'. If you need to crack any interview keep trying, keep pushing your limits gradually and consistently then SUCCESS is yours!
