Understanding the role of interview in jobInterview is a process for final selection of a candidate and everyone who is striving to get selected for a position in any organisations prepares for the interview with his or her best efforts. Just having a good score in the written test will not suffice as interview is the final test where in addition to academic capabilities other traits and qualities of the individual are cross examined by a panel of the interview board. So, the interview plays a very essential and vital part in the career of a candidate who prepares for it with all the wits.
There are instances when some people fare very good in the written examination but become concerned for the interview due to their inherent shyness or some such deficiency which is often seen in the introvert people although they are most of the time very good in studies. Then, there are others who know the things but have a lack of confidence and show some fumbling, fearful body language, and confusion at the time of interview only to lose the chance of getting selected.
The persons going to face an interview should understand that in any selection process there are two parts. One is the academic part where individual knowledge is the only criterion but the other part is the personality and mannerism which is also a qualification when a person gets a job and has to discharge some high level responsibilities and also has to take work from his subordinates in the overall interest of the organisation. At that juncture, many other traits and qualities help the person and it is therefore imperative that a candidate should give importance to the interview in the same manner as he or she had given to the written examination. With that type of mindset and preparation there is no reason why a student or candidate will fail in the verbal interrogation. A candidate who is confident and can clearly express his knowledge to the board members and talks in a polite but convincing manner generally gets success in this final test.
