How to Face the Interview: The journey of becoming a CA, CS, CMA is a difficult one but bears the sweetest fruits. A journey involving various hurdles but also various rewards. The greatest of them being the prefix added to our names. The hard work doesn’t end just there, The next step is the campus placement. The interview phase is something that all of us are anxious about. Being a fresher and not having any experience can fill anyone with fear of facing it.

How to Face the Interview

In my experience, you can’t really be 100% prepared for your interview because we may never know what question might come your way, but here are somethings that I learnt during my campus selection.

  • Being the first batch to go through online interviews, things were a lot different and required a lot more preparations. Looking at the covid conditions, we shall be prepared for any such conditions.
  • Giving interviews from home creates a sense of comfort, so we should use that to our advantage and not be worried and anxious about being in an unfamiliar place and work on our technical knowledge.
  • Even in online interviews, we must focus on our body language too. The interviewers will make it a note to check your confidence and other aspects of your personality through your body language.
  • Coming to the technical part of the interview, you should revise all the basics that we have studied. Be thorough with subjects like cost, accounts, financial management.
  • Try to have clear concepts so that you are prepared for your case study questions.
  • You will be judged on your practical knowledge so make notes and be prepared with whatever you have learned during you articleship.
  • Familiarize yourself with the job description and focus highly on having the knowledge of what the jobs asks of you.
  • Understand your resume well and be prepared for any questions that might be asked related to your C/V.
  • One thing to remember is, you don’t have to know all the answers. You are only human. You can accept whatever you don’t rather than giving the wrong answer.

Atlast, don’t panic. You have come this far. You have studied and you know your subjects. Have a little confidence and a lot of faith in yourself. Speaking from my experience after giving interviews for companies like CEAT, Vedanta, Ford and Accenture, it all comes down to your knowledge of subjects, presence of mind and confidence. Choose a path and keep working hard on it. You got this!
