How to tackle Panel interviews?
Many companies, while interviewing, have a panel of interviewers rather than only one person conducting the interview. Aisi situation main aapko kuchh baaton ka dhyan rakhna chahiye. Panel interviews require special technique.
The candidate should maintain the interest of all the panel members at all times. Iske liye aapko sabhi interviewers se connection banaye rakhna zaroori hai.
You must make sure that your answers are precise and to the point. Don’t be conversational in your answers. Koshish kariye ki panel ke sabhi members aapse baat karein. Listen carefully to what they are saying.
Keep eye contact with everyone on the panel. Is se har panel member ki involvement aapke saath bani rahegi aur aap unki baat par theek se react kar payenge.
Jo bhi aapse question pooch raha ho sirf uske saath hi eye contact mat rakhiye. Look at everyone and don’t speak only to the senior person on the panel. Sab ke saath baat kariye.
Some men try to avoid looking at the women interviewers on the panel aur sirf aadmiyon ki taraf hi dekhte hain. Yeh sarasar galat hai and is considered very rude.
Some women look at only the women interviewers on the panel and avoid looking at the male members. This is considered a sign of weakness. Aapko chahiye ki aap sabha panel members se baat karein chahe woh male hon ya female.
