Learning from the Interview:
I applied for ABC Company Ltd for the post of Senior Accountant. I was called by the HR executives for an Interview to take things further. When I entered in to the seminar hall for an interview I found that there were seven executives were sitting there on a round table. I sat there by saying thank you. The interview processes started by the question tell me about you. After this they questioned me about my qualifications, extracurricular activities, my past experiences, hobbies, and why I am leaving current job, why I am interested to join that company, what do I have in yourself so they should hire me etc. Many questions were asked also about the technical area in which I am going to work if selected. Thus finally my interview finished and I came to outside of the room and got relax.
The experience was good there because the executives asked to me about my qualifications, experience and interest etc. I was answering all the questions they asked but still I was feeling shy and nervous in front of them. They didn’t ask me much about my career aim as it was explained my CV in better way. I learned from the interview many things such as your CV and resume should be to the point so that interviewers can easily have a look in less than 2 mins and directly can come to the point. Also whatever you are writing in your CV should be explainable by you. Each and every point of the resume should be inline and while answering the questions you should have eye contact with the executives.
Before facing the interview session I was reading through some papers and discussing with my friends who have faced the interview process then I came to learn that in the interview room I should be calm and cool, should not explain much and I should learn more about the ABC company and should answer already remember answer but the situation was just reverse. They never asked me any straight forward question but instead of that the questions they asked from me was very simple and belongs to me and my career /experiences. Thus I can say that secondary research experience and my own experience were different.
