Safalta Expert Published by: Saloni Bhatia Updated Sat, 22 May 2021 03:30 PM IST


Check out these four expert-recommended tips for acing a government job interview.

In a few days, candidates who passed the recently held government exams or yet to pass (results awaited), will face an interview round. This is the round in which students either succeed or fail.
A broad knowledge base is not the only thing put to the test in the interview round. Aspirants must have even more in their arsenals to succeed in an interview.

Every year, millions of students attempt to pass the numerous government work entrance exams conducted in India. Many of these exams are multi-stage exams, which means they have more than one round, and passing the exam means passing all of the rounds before being able to obtain a joining letter.

The vast majority of students who take these exams are screened out of the competition in the first round. Just a few thousand people are chosen for the second round, and only a few hundred make it to the final round.

The interview round is usually the last round of such exams.

A government job interview is an art, and perfecting it, like any art, requires practice and planning on the part of the aspirant. When a candidate makes it to the interview round, he normally has a knowledge base that is superior to that of the majority of his peers.

A superior knowledge base, on the other hand, is insufficient to pass an interview. Much more will be required of an aspirant's arsenal.

Here are four pointers on how to ace your interview:
  • Make sure the information you've given in the Bio-data form is accurate.

The first is the aspirant's home region; the second is their educational background; the third is their hobbies, and the fourth is their work experience.
As a result, when preparing for an interview, an applicant should make a list of all potential questions relating to these four categories.
For instance, questions about the type of soil in his region, banking penetration in the region, details of the subjects he studied during his graduation, details about his hobbies, and finally details about previous work experience.

  • Know what the company is looking for in a nominee.
An applicant should be well-versed in all of the basic functions of the position for which he has applied, as well as knowledge about the organization's overall operations.
The candidates would almost certainly be quizzed on the fundamentals of the industry in which the company operates. In banking interviews, for example, candidates are often questioned about simple banking terminologies and principles. Things like BASIL norms or bank risk management ratios, for example.
As a result, when preparing for an interview, knowing the industry in which the company operates is essential.
  • Be sincere and dedicated.
Candidates are often presented with hypothetical circumstances or scenarios during interviews to assess their decision-making and analytical abilities, as well as their knowledge of the principles of leadership, integrity, and honesty.
As a result, a candidate must remain upright, uphold his dignity, demonstrate unwavering loyalty, and be completely truthful when answering such questions.
That's because if the interview panelists detect even the tiniest hint of insincerity or dishonesty in the candidate's answer, he'll be rejected outright.

  • Consider yourself an interviewer.
Finally, the best way to prepare for an interview is to think like an interviewer and write down any questions that come to mind.
The trick to acing an interview is knowing the answers to all possible interview questions. As a result, making a list of a thousand or so questions should suffice.
