Essential things to remember for an interview.

You applied for a job and luckily you got a call from their HR department for an interview. Few things a person needs to keep in his mind in order to crack the interview are mentioned below:

Firstly, you should be properly dressed to look presentable. A formal attire is the first building block of your career. Never go to an interview wearing casual clothes as it will give a negative impact on your personality.

Secondly, be a good listener. From the very beginning of the interview, your interviewer is giving you information, either directly or indirectly. If you are not hearing it, you are missing a major opportunity. Good communication skills include listening and letting the person know you heard what was said. Be a good observer and match his style and pace.

Thirdly, Don't talk too much. Telling the interviewer more than he needs to know could be a fatal mistake. When you have not prepared ahead of time, you may ramble when answering interview questions, sometimes talking yourself right out of the job. Prepare for the interview by reading through the job posting, matching your skills with the position's requirements and relating only that information.

The fourth step is to avoid being over-friendly. The interview is a professional meeting to talk business. This is not about making a new friend. Your level of familiarity should mimic the interviewer's demeanor. It is important to bring energy and enthusiasm to the interview and to ask questions, but do not overstep your place as a candidate looking for a job.

Lastly, Ask relevant questions. When asked if they have any questions, most candidates answer, "No." Wrong answer. Part of knowing how to interview is being ready to ask questions that demonstrate an interest in what goes on in the company. Asking questions also gives you the opportunity to find out if this is the right place for you. The best questions come from listening to what you're asked during the interview and asking for additional information.
