So few days back I’ve stumbled upon a discussion on Twitter under the username of @TwtUpCampus . Well, if you didn’t really follow this acc yet, then you should! Now!
The curator was tweeting like soooooooo many important things to do during an interview. Not those ‘what to wear’ or ‘the basic needs of an interview’ kind of discussion but hey, this is the real deal. Note that this is the improvised version for the curator’s tweets. Enjoy!
The interview #secretweapon (group assessments)
o What is a group interview/assessment?
-Well basically, it is an interview where you will be interviewed as a group. Not that ‘facing the panels ALONE’ kind of interview. You get me right?
o You will be given a case study (The title of your discussion).
o Of course, the panel will analyze your discussion.
o ETA? Probably around 10-15 minutes.
SO HOW CAN YOU GET THIS DONE? (IN THE BEST WAY. DUHH)
o Clarify yourself.
“Dear officers, we need to speak in full English, loud and clear, right?”.
SO WHY WOULD YOU HAVE TO DO THIS?
To recognize the presence of the panels, THAT THEY’RE THERE, THEY REALLY DO EXIST! Lol.
o Note that THIS IS NOT A FIGHT AGAINST EACH OTHER KIND OF ASSESSMENT! (The greed to be the only people who stand out in the group). Never ever, ever, ever, ever, ever ,ever do that.
o Give the panels your truthful smile
o NOW, LET’S PRAY.
“Guys, just before we proceed, let’s do a quick prayer to our Lord”.
AND WHY DO YOU REALLY HAVE TO DO THIS??
To establish the friendliness.
o Give others the chance!
“Anyone wants to lead the discussion?”. (Never reign authority).
o Give help to the ‘needy’ ones.
“You agree, yes?”.
“Please say yes, because I need your consensus on this”.
(Just make sure that you look him/her in the eyes when you’re saying this)
o If you ever being asked by the panels “What do you think about the discussion?”.
HOW AM I GOING TO RESPOND TO THIS?
“Officers, I do believe in each one of use deserve to be the recipients of ___________. We have to potentials, and the talents you might need/searching for”.
“All we need is the support from you, oh, and prayers too”.
o Try to ‘save’ as many people as possible. Be nice, friendly and supportive!
o What if you simply got ‘attacked’ (questioned) by the panels about your passion towards the topic? “Sir, I truly believe in my talents. I might not have the requirements, but whatever It takes, I am passionate to discover new world”
Sooooo, that was everything. Other than all those tips, I was also fascinated by the last remarks from the curator;
“Interview is imperative for panels to really know you. Show your actual self. Don’t bluff. Don’t wear #LiarMask”
