A person might have a great profile but he doesn't have the personality to answer questions. A lot of times the interview you feel will be very technical and the guy was able to answer technical things but he was not able to impress on the HR front. So the most important and the first question the interviewer asks you is to introduce yourself. What are the things that need to be included in it?. The first and foremost thing is how you speak and the second would be body language. In an online scenario, it's all about your shoulders, your eyes, and your hands.
Things to follow during the interview
One of the most important things you just need to bring is the energy that vibrates with a little bit of hand movement. A certain amount of hand movements with energy needs to be gotten. The four things that a candidate should be prepared for before entering the interview is listed below.
- Body language
- Linking things
So the most important thing in a personal interview is to hit the question which is Tell me about yourself. This is going to be the first question you face in any interview wherever you go. Now we will spend some time on how to structure this question.
How to start?
So now you have the question How am I going to start?. You can start by saying "Good morning or Good evening and I'm X from Y city. I completed my schooling in Z and went on to XXX Engineering College to complete Bachelor's degree in Electrical and Electronics engineering. My family consists of four members myself, my father, my mother, and my brother. That's all about myself". So your first statement will just include the following details.
- Your Name
- Your City
- Your UG college
- You Family.
Avoid these things
Whenever you answer the question tell me about yourself you should not talk in detail about your school. From the interviewer's point of view, the person doesn't care about your school unless you have been a KVPY scholar, NTSC scholar which represents your school, or any national-level competition.
Going in deep about family members during answering tell me about yourself is a waste of time unless the interviewer asks.
Please do not try to add things about your city since a lot of people do that and fall into a trap because you might have read something very cool about your city and you want to add that statement. Unfortunately, if the panelist is from the same city and if he knows a lot more about the city than you, he will go on to further things about that City. If you don't know then the first impression will end up in a disaster. You will also create a bad impression as you try to impress them with your city. In case you have moved around the city you can just mention it.
