Seven Things Never, Ever To Say In A Job Interview

While it is difficult to find a job, the tougher task is to crack the interview. Interviews can be a nerve-racking experience for most of the job seekers. The very thought of facing a panel of professionals throwing up one question after another can give jitters to some.

While it is important to know what to say in an interview, equally essential is to know the statements that can be the ultimate deal-breakers.

1) Overconfidence is a big no-no
Overconfidence is a big no-no during the course of an interview. While exhibiting confidence is very important, you should also know when and where to draw the line as showing overconfidence will only annoy your interviewer. Experts say one must not seem arrogant during an interview.

2) Don't bad-mouth about the people you have worked with
There is no harm in expressing your thoughts, but do think once before making negative comments about the people you have worked with previously. There might be a need to refer to a person in various contexts, in pleasant or unpleasant ways, but make sure to not sound negative in your actions words. Bad-mouthing will only ruin your chances at the interview.

3) Say no to distraction
While appearing for a job interview, make sure you look sincere. Getting distracted by answering calls or texts will not leave a good impression on the interviewer. Distraction makes a candidate appear uninterested in the job.

4) Beware of a negative attitude
Complaining is never considered worthy. A job seeker should never talk negatively about their previous organisation. It is regarded as unprofessional and sets off an alarm bell in the mind of the next employer, prompting them to wonder whether the candidate may have difficulty in workplace relationships.

Candidate should only focus on what they have learned in their previous organisations without painting the employer in a negative light.

5) Do not mark a false impression
Remember the saying 'the first impression is the last impression'. This holds true in a job interview too. Experts believe that few companies' heads still believe in first impressions.

Candidates generally end up answering the questions thrown at them, what matters to the employer is your passion for work, details, skills and experience. Market yourself better to get the best deal.

6) Don't slip into altered behaviour
Those who put in an extra effort during the interview to please and appease the interviewer may end up modifying their responses and not being who they are.
The stress of not having a job in hand can cause this altered behaviour. This is a major mistake because this way you are trying to be someone else and ultimately end up losing the job to someone else.

7) Don't try to retrofit yourself to the role
One thing people do is ask for the role and declare themselves as the right fit for the role. Many people tend to do this across functions and levels, usually because of their anxiety. It is not for the candidate to ask about the role and then prove they are the right person for the job.

The expectation from the candidate is to present a clear picture of their adaptability and core competency. Do not try to retrofit your previous experience with that of the role you are interviewing for. Roles and their execution change from organisation to organisation.

Focus on the skills and competencies you bring to the table and leave it to the interviewer to assess whether it is the right competency for the role.

India Infoline Finance Create 4,000 Jobs in India

India Infoline Finance, backed by the UK-based CDC group, has embarked on a mega hiring plan as it aims to grow loans about 25% a year as more citizens step on to the consumption ladder in the world’s fastest-expanding economy.

IIF has poached ace banker Sumit Bali from Kotak Mahindra Bank to head the non-banking unit as its chief executive officer (CEO): The company will also recruit 4,000 people this financial year. Total staff strength would reach 14,000 by March-end next year.

“ IIFL Finance may also enter into new businesses like construction finance, two wheeler and car finance where we will use Bali’s expertise,” said a senior executive, who is not authorised to talk to the media. A major recruitment drive will support such expansion plans, the person said.

The company’s board would meet in a day or two to approve such a recruitment plan. The company, a subsidiary of IIFL group, aims to attain a loan book size of over Rs 50,000 crore in the next three years from Rs 31,000 crore as on March 31.

Earlier, Bali, an IIM Ahmedabad alumnus, was leading the Kotak Mahindra Bank’s lending businesses, including home loans, loan against property (LAP), business loans, credit cards and personal loans for the salaried individuals.

He also donned the role of the CEO of Kotak Mahindra Prime. He spent more than 12 years in the new-generation private sector bank. The company is also on a branch expansion spree at a time when some lenders are going digital, offering loans.

“We see huge potential in smaller towns where personal interaction is key to gaining business,” said the person cited above.IIFL Finance looks to expand its branch strength to 1800 from about 1200 branches currently to rapidly expand across smaller cities and towns in India.

Four years ago, IIFL group appointed Rajashree Nambiar as its CEO from Standard Chartered Bank. A few months ago, she left to pursue another career opportunity.
This week, IIFL group’s wealth management firm raised Rs 750 crore from investors, including HDFC Standard Life, Amansa Capital and General Atlantic.

“We raise capital as and when there is a need for funds. Since inception, promoters have never sold any stake but always diluted to get funds into the company,” Nirmal Jain, chairman IIFL group, told ET a few days ago.

In the past one year, IIFL Holdings shares surged about 17%, outpacing the broader Sensex that rose 14% during the same period.
