Interviews are scary but what if I told you that there is a way to turn everything in your favor.
What if I told you that you can have more control over how it goes than the interviewer.
Intrigued? Read ahead!
It all depends on what you say during the interview. (also on what you don’t say)
Let me explain. The interviewer mainly focuses on what you have just mentioned and starts to question you on that.
For example, he/she asked you to introduce yourself and if you mentioned an interest in something then the interviewer may pick up on that and ask you more about it just to check your knowledge and whether your interest is genuine.
Let’s take another example, If the interviewer has just asked you to explain a technical term with some examples then whatever you mention in the example, he/she will pick up certain words and ask you to explain that as his next question.
So, the trick is to carefully use your words and the terms on which you want the interviewer to ask you questions because you know them well. Only mention the things you can explain well. Be honest and prepare enough to convince the interviewer. In this way, you can steer the conversations to the topics you have the most knowledge on.
