It is well said that the 'First impression is the last impression'. Therefore, once you prepare yourself excellently for the interview, you will definitely crack the interview, and get the job.

Self Introduction In Interview

The time you enter the interview room, you start worrying, thinking about the possible questions you will be asked and how you would answer them. However, we often overlook the significance of the very first question, which revolves around self-introduction.

The following points can help you ace self-introduction. Jot them down to keep them in your mind.

Dress nicely and decently 
Appearance plays a vital role when you someone for the first time. Picking up what you wear for a meeting will show your part to people who are going to meet. Different companies have different dress principles. Therefore, you can research the company culture before you decide what to put on for your job interview. 

Here are a few things you need to take care of while deciding on your outfit for the interview-
  • Choose something you are comfortable with
  • Don’t washout your own self in an outfit 
  • Keep more focus on yourself than on your outfit
Be ready with what to say
After deciding on your outfit, you need to prepare what you will speak about first when you will meet the interviewer. Remember, confidence is equally important as your words. Therefore, along with picking convincing and impressive words, keep your confidence up. At the first impression, greet your Interviewer, and tell him your name. You can go for a handshake afterward.

Don’t hesitate to speak. It doesn’t seem good when someone asks to repeat your name again. Right? It depicts that you’re not confident. Therefore, be confident about what you speak.

Start with Greeting the Interviewer 
Meeting and greeting are vital parts of interacting with someone. In the case of an interview, it becomes very important to greet your Interviewer as soon as you go in front of him or her. The interviewers are experienced. They can sum up your personality in a few initial minutes. Therefore, be decent and present yourself nicely. Firstly, greet the concerned person and then go for a handshake.

Present yourself with a smile and a brief introduction about yourself. Give snippy details about your family. Keep your body relaxed by being confident. Maintain eye contact with your interviewer and nod at suitable times. This should begin the procedure of introduction in an interview. 

Mention your Educational Qualifications 
After you have introduced yourself with your basics, mention your educational qualifications. Although your education will surely be there in your resume, mentioning what you have studied and your area of interest seems impressive.  

Remember not to sound overconfident about your expertise.

Explain your professional experience if you have any
If you worked in a company before, mention the experience and things you learned. Moreover, talk about your position and expertise. Talk about the internships and workshops you attended during that time.

Share your hobbies and interests
Generally, interviewers ask about the interviewee's hobbies and interests. Therefore, don’t feel hesitant to share yours. You can take the interview in on an informal tone. However, remember to maintain the decorum of the interview. 

Be ready for follow-up action
Once you have introduced yourself and are done with your part, the interviewer will ask some questions related to what you have mentioned before. Questions are asked to check candidates’ honesty and integrity. Therefore, be real, and be yourself as far as you can.
