It is actually perceived as a very easy question to answer because it is typically considered as a routine question - like a warm up! However in reality it is actually a leading question that often gives the interviewer a chance to start forming opinions about the candidate and the drift of the interview right away.

From a candidate's perspective this can become a difficult question if you have not prepared well for it, in advance. Actually this question is a wonderful opportunity for the candidate to showcase his strengths and veer the conversation towards his areas of expertise.

This is not just the starter of the conversation, but the main course too. The flavor of the interview depends on the ingredients you have mixed in this dish. You speak about a unique hobby, and it adds a certain flavor; you speak about a certain characteristic, and the flavor changes.

In a comparison between all kinds of HR questions that are prepared by the candidate, this is the most important one.

I remember how tensed I used to get hearing the same while preparing my SOP. Bringing a blend of good writing, clarity, crispness, differentiation along with playing all safe, the SOP had become a tumultuous task. The fear to sit and start the big task (as in my head), prevented me taking the first step itself. Most of the times, I was writing and removing the words the entire time.

However If given a thought it actually is a very interesting thing to do. A chance given to speak the most important things about own life and thus shape the direction of the interview any way you want.

Most of the candidates try writing a safe SOP. By safe I mean , writing in a traditional flow as: Name > Academics (University, Stream and percentage) > Professional Work(Years of experience, Firm name and job profile ) > Hobbies. Repeating a lot of stuff already mentioned in the CV, they try to limit the number and variety of questions raised to them. However, if you sit and think from the interviewer’s perspective, who takes hundreds of interviews in a day, the generic and boring SOP may make you a part of the big crowd they had assessed.

You want to make a mark. You want to direct the interview the way you want. You want the interviewer to enter your arena and prevent yourself from entering his.

Hence put some good stuff, something which is unique to you, specific to your personality.

How can you do this? Here are some pointers on what to include in the SOP:

  1. Mention the most special characteristic of your personality. This could be anything: love for travelling or arts, being a dancer/singer, social work you have been doing, being a fantastic cook, or anything else under the sun.
  2. Trace backwards, begin with work ex followed by UG and then schooling. Write about responsibilities and learnings you had during this time. Unless there is something substantial, skip very generic things about your schooling.
  3. Talk about your personal life a bit (keep it precise): family background; learnings from the family.
  4. Hobbies (Very important): Speak at length, mention achievements if any,
  5. Strengths and weaknesses.
  6. Why MBA?

How to answer. "Tell me about yourself" ?

There are some job interview questions that are guaranteed to come up in most (if not all) of your job interviews, regardless of your industry, your experience level, and job type. 

At the top of this list is the universal and much-dreaded classic: “Tell me about yourself.” 

This question (or a variation like “Walk me through your background”) comes up in just about every job interview and many job searchers hate it. 

They hate it because they get frustrated trying to decipher exactly what the interviewer is looking for. However, if you prepare properly, there’s no reason to dread this question. 

In fact, this question is an opportunity an opening for you to set the tone of the job interview and emphasise the points that you most want this potential employer to know about you. 

Don’t waste the opportunity by simply diving into a long recitation of your resume. This also isn’t the time to mention that you love flamenco dancing and bingo (yes, I have seen candidates ramble on about hobbies and personal preferences many times and it’s a surefire way to make a weak first impression). 

Instead, try a concise, enthusiastic response that summarises your big-picture fit for the job. This is also a good opportunity to share some information about your proudest achievements and goals.

How To Ace Interview Meetings: Practical Suggestions

You have been called for an interview meeting confirms that you do have the qualification required for the job. Now in the meeting, you are being evaluated for other criteria. These other criteria are dependant on organizations culture and on the person taking the interview. In other words, sociability is a very important part of the interview process.  
 
 
Here is a quick checklist of important things to consider at your next interview meeting. Let's take obvious ones first out of the way:
 
1. Reach on time. 
 
2. Dress appropriately and sharply.
 
3. Keep Phone Off / Silent / out of the sight. 
 
4. Make sure there are no spellings and grammar mistakes on your resume.
 
Now let's see some pointers which are not so obvious and candidates tend to make mistakes in this space - 
 
1. More than 50% of your impact comes from your body language, the tone of your voice and facial expressions. Be aware and conscious of the fact and keep in check. 
 
2. Mirror your interviewer for better chemistry and flow of conversation. If they smile, you can too relax for a bit. When they are focused, you should too stay focused. 
 
3. Research the Company before you go to the meeting. Ask intelligent questions, not the obvious ones. 
 
4. Answer the questions in more than "Yes" and "No". Say something more than given in your resume. They want to know about you as a person. An individual is more than their education degree and skills. Tell them your story, in short, that is.
 
5. Clean up your digital footprints. Check your social media pages and eliminate the shreds of evidence of your not-so-fine-moments. These days, interview starts as soon you apply. Even before hiring managers call you, they check out your Linked In and other easily available information. Meeting you is the last step. Be mindful of that fact. 
 
Special suggestions for entry-level employees/freshers:
 
1. Do not enter the premises with your friends and music. Leave your earphones/headphones or keep them out of sight. 
 
2. Have answers to commonly asked questions ready. Few examples are: Why do you want this job? Why should we hire you? Where do you see yourself in 5 years? You will be answering them in some shape or form. 
 
3. You can now drop cool attitude of school and college. Brace up for a new life. Hope you are ready. All the very best. You can do it.

I was wondering if I am to give only 3 tips for your next interview, what would be those? After thinking for a while, I could understand that the 3 most common mistakes are the 3 biggest lessons. So what are the 3 most common mistakes that can convert into an insight for your next interview?

1. Be on time: We all know it, reaching on time is the most important part of any meeting/interview. The message that we give when we reach late is we don't respect the time of that individual further we exhibit a behavior/habit. Which can cause a bigger damage to company reputation/culture? Hence you by default go under the category of the rejected candidate.

2. Informational Interview: Never ask for job's, conduct informational interview. What do we do in here is we try to understand the organization, culture and working environment a little better. We also ask few questions around how can I get in here? By doing so, you follow a professional approach and also have an insightful conversation with the person (working at your dream industry/organization).

3. Prepare your resume: Majority of the time we have observed candidates just make a copy of an existing resume and do not invest much time preparing it. You only have 6-13 seconds of time to get shortlisted. That's the time interviewer skim resume for. They don't read they skim your resume. What message do you want to convey in that time? Are you able to do that with the format you already have? If the answer is yes you have the right resume.

How do you answer any situational or behavioral question asked during your interview? Normally, we use random ways to answer these questions. What if we follow an approach to answering these questions? This approach is called SAR (Situation, Action, and Results) approach.

Situation: Spend 15-18 seconds to explain the situation not exactly but the objective is to spend less time in explaining the situation (problem) and focus more towards results. While narrating situation you might want to briefly explain the exact scenario and not opening the talk to blame game.

Action: What actions did you take post you have understood the situation, were you the spectator or you took a leadership role in the situation and designed an action plan? Also, try and explain the details of what actions did you take and what challenges did you face while taking action. It could be resistance from other stakeholder or lack of resources and how you overcome those challenges?

Results: What was the outcome? How was it accepted and appreciated? Try to show few numbers % growth, % ROI etc. This representation will help articulate your story in a better way.

I usually recommend people to have an inventory of different SAR covering different situational questions. It helps in many ways. Hope this helps you better prepare for next interview.
