Like the famous saying goes “first impression matters most”. Which is an important aspect of our everyday life. This concept is one of the factors that have made or broken most people, when it comes to grabbing an opportunity. When we talk about an opportunity, we easily refer to the career sector in terms of getting a job. There is no better place you will need to make a first impression than in an interview room. Many times people desire to find “the magic formula” on how to create a positive impression during an interview. What they don’t know is that making an impression is a cultural way of relating with people. Obviously, you will know from the way they tend to view this issue, because they really don’t know what to do. It’s just that they consider the interview rooms to be a place were the “gentle Antelope get eaten by the fiery Lion”, and they are wrong.
A large percentage of applicants who failed in a job interview didn’t fail as a result of the interview itself but as a result of poor preparation before the interview. I have heard people who said they were taken unaware of certain standard of the interview process which they least expected will be necessary or relevant to be considered. The fact is this, as tough as an interview is there are ways to prepare yourself physically and mentally for it. The first thing you must do is to know the necessary criteria the interviewer demand in terms of the quality they need to fill in the vacancy and you should also write down the quality you posses that are in alignment with what they demand, so that you will be able to share that information with your interviewer when you are asked.
