Hello guys! This is my first blog ever. And it is be going to about interview preparation as this is the most [probably only] talked topic among undergrads right now. So please have a look and do comment your suggestions.
Coming to the main part, myself being an undergrad, I have looked and studied all over the internet about dos and don'ts for the upcoming season. With all the knowledge I have gained I will briefly list out main points and provide you guys with some good resources to go deeper if you want.
- Make one good resume [CVs not necessary for undergrads] and tailor it according to the job/position you are applying for. Remember tailoring is important.
- Resume must have contact details, brief summary, most recent education, project, skills, work experience[if] contained in a single page.
- Thoroughly go through the job requirements, expectations, skillset, company background - this will help in tailoring your answers during the interview.
- Prepare basics specific to the job and have a good understanding of the skills you mentioned in your resume.
- Get an idea of the selection procedure of the company you have applied to.
- Prepare answers to common questions beforehand.
- Most imp - Be confident and honest during the interview!
- Do not think about if your interview was bad or good or how you will stand with others, let this headache be on the interviewer's side.
- Do check your mails regularly.
- If selected, say yes to the offer only after understanding compensation breakdown. If not, then do a brief introspection upon the domain you can improve.
Most of the important stuff is simplified. Readers, please share your views and resources in the comments to help peers.
