Some Important Tips which you have to keep in your mind while going for Bank Interview

Tips on Preparing for the Interview-Day:
*.Gather information about the bank or organization that has invited you for the interview. This will give you a clear idea about the philosophy, work environment and reputation of the company.
*.Read the job description carefully as to what they expect from you.
*.Evaluate your qualifications,experience, and core competences, areas of strength and accordingly draw up a questionnaire along with your replies to the expected questions.

o   Brush up your communication skills.
*.Interviewers normally ask you to highlight your strengths and weaknesses.
*.Strengths of course can be emphasized more easily but even the weaknesses can be presented in a positive light. For example, ‘I am a little impatient with the people who are not focused enough, or non serious about the work in hand’
*.Go with a positive frame of mind, without worrying much about the outcome.

o  \Attending the Interview: Go with a smile (not a grin) on your face, with confidence and
    determination to succeed in your heart.

o   As You Enter:
*.Depending upon whether you are being interviewed by one person or a panel of interviewers, greet politely ‘Good Morning’/Afternoon or Evening depending upon time of the day.
*.If there are more than one person then address them as ‘Sirs/Madams’ and try to encompass them all in your greeting. If there is only one lady in the panel, it is polite to greet her separately.
*.Most probably you will be offered a seat. Do not sit down unless you are asked to.

o   Facing the Interviewers
