Weaknesses:

If you wish to tread carefully, you can say – my greatest strength is also my greatest weakness.

Role model (Who and Why?)

Think of people who embody the qualities that you most admire and that your future employer would value most.

Some of the qualities could include resilience, determination, integrity, intelligence, humour, kindness, selflessness.

You might also include exceptional achievement, strength or a fantastic work ethic.

You can choose either:

a public figure or a personal acquaintance (family, friend, parent etc.)

Explain WHY you look up to them and HOW they have influenced you either directly or indirectly!

Research Public figures and gives an overview of their achievements while focussing on the specific quality you admire.

Link it to your interview by explaining how you would demonstrate the attribute in your role

Family – Do not give too much information that the interviewer might not be interested in.

For example, you can state – we are a family of 5, where I am the eldest of my two siblings.

My parents are employed, and my Siblings are studying.

(Remember, this is one topic you don’t talk too much to bore the interviewer, just a short and sweet description is sufficient. )

If they ask additional questions, then you can analyse what their expectations are on the personal front and answer accordingly.

Short term goals – What you would like to achieve in the next two years.

E.g., I would like to start my first job, develop skills to excel in my role as well as assist with career progression.

Long-Term Goals – Lead, manage are terms associated with long-term goals for a fresher.

Also – Excel, master are terms to be used. For example – “I would love to excel in the art of team management.”

Maybe include weakness and say – I would like to convert this into my strength. It is a familiar topic. It will add credibility to your words.

Also, talk about the saying – “Change is the only thing constant” and mention your interest in continuously learning and updating your skills as part of the role.

Hobbies – Please don’t say – Watching TV, sleeping etc..

Talk about activities needing involvement such as Cooking, Photography, Trekking, even long rides and Drives count.

Let's ignore partying, boozing, fighting with siblings or friends as of now.

Conclusion: Thank the interviewer for giving you an opportunity to express yourself and mention the company's motto and confidently, firmly say – Working in line with the company’s motto, (mention the slogan here) I am confident that I shall ensure that I will always meet and exceed expectations with regards to … (and say the motto).

Use the below template:

3 Special Tips On Personality Development

Rizwan Ayaan

I can teach every topic very easily and make it stronger for the students.

Are you struggling to build up your Personality even through after going through a lot of Personality development books and other educational platforms..? why is this happening only with you...?

Are you struggling to build up your Personality even through after going through a lot of Personality development books and other educational platforms..? why is this happening only with you...?

Let us Discuss..!!

Now Listen.

Actually, what is the personality that we have to discuss here because if you want to develop your character, then you have to understand what figure means?

When you see people in your society with the same code of conduct and ethics and also with the same skill set you will sometimes see one will cherish and the other mayor will be an utter failure why is this happening time and again.

These people have gone through the same type of education and upbringing, then what is the reason for their failure.

Let me help you to understand this naturally so that you too can become successful one day when you know your personality.

Now see you have the potential to create or fulfil your dreams, and you know that you can do it but why you are stuck for long, long time. Just think about it. You may also be feeling depressed due no or delayed success, isn't it..?

Let me remind you something here as usual sometime on someday you may have gone to a movie with your friends and after the film is over what was the reaction of all your friends. Is that was same or is that was different think about it...Is everybody talking about the same scene of the movie or different view, Is everybody acting in the same way or in a different way...What everybody was acting differently isn't It..?

Why this happens because every person is different with different psychological and biological skills set.

If all these people are trained in the same way then also, they act differently because they are different from inside.

Therefore, Everybody's personality is different from inside and outside.

Now coming to why people don't get success even after personality development training is because they are just trained from outside by making them sit in a group of people and delivered the same message now you can recall the above example of the movie what happens, the behaviours are different.

Now coming to the real personality development or personality development training..!!

As I said in my title 3 Special Tips On Personality Development Now I want to explain them in brief:

Psychology of Personality: At first you have to understand who you are and what is inside yourself that is very much important, If you are unable to get it by yourself you can approach a Psychologist like me or any other person in your area. First, try to search inside you what are your inner potentials and what types of miles stones you can reach. Then come to the second point
Aligning your Personality: Now you came to know who you are and what your skills are now it's time to align your personality with the goals and ambitions you are looking for, What is your project and what you are going to achieve, you have to align your character. If you do this correctly, then you can show the world that, you are also very powerful and you are a winner...Now coming to the third skill.
Balancing Your Personality: Sometimes what happens when people know themselves well they try to overreact and do not keep a balance of personality. Due to this, the ready cake will start becoming rotten, and they will start losing all fruits of life...Therefore, it is essential to balance your personality.
If you are looking for a Psychological Based Personality Development One On One Training, It may be for your career or business success I am here to help You...Message Me and Book My appointment. This week decidedly fewer slots are remaining for my Personality Development Training Program...Find a Slot for yourself and Let's Meet Online or Offline One on One.

I will look into your behaviour patterns and based on that I will guide you to your future success.

Now Cheer Up Because you are Winner from Inside...!!

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

Ritu Mehta

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.
