Last recruitment was in the year 2012 four years ago. Job in J&K bank is considered a prestigious in one Jammu and Kashmir. You are reading this article so, it is presumed you have cleared the written and now wondering what next!
Interview stage is the last lap where nobody would like to miss the final goal after reaching so far. Some points which I would like that the aspirants should not miss are:
Things to be done: Forget your past failures and be confident.
* So prepare your answers to all possible questions beforehand,
* Teach yourself to talk to the point and without beating around the bush.
* Be smart with words.
* Once you are prepared, have faith in yourself.
* Last but not the least, once in the interview room, forget about all your inhibitions and just go ahead with full confidence (but stay away from overconfidence, be humble always).
In the SEE formula, S Stands for smile, E for eye, and E for enthusiasm
HUMOUR: A little humour or wit thrown in the discussion occasionally enables the interviewers to look at the pleasant side of your personality. If it does not come naturally, do not force it.
EYE CONTACT: You must maintain eye contact with the panel, throughout the interview. This shows your self-confidence and honesty.
VOICE: Resonant, firm, pleasant, select the appropriate pitch according to the audience
BE NATURAL: Many interviewees adopt a stance which is not their natural self. It is the best for you to talk in natural manner because then only you appear genuine.
Things not to be done: ignore all the negative things about Bank job.
Being unprepared to the standard job interview questions.
Lying about your qualifications, experience and your knowledge.
Not showing enthusiasm/interest on the job. Sharing too much.
Failing to explain how your skills match the job in question.
Speaking for most of time of the interview or interrupting the interviewer speech
Being too humble. Saying phrases like “you know”, “like a”, “I guess” and “Hmm”-
Showing nervousness. Being too prepared. Blurting your answers out.
Having said all this, go into the interview with self-belief. You will meet a lot of candidates outside the room, who might seem much more capable to you than your own self, but do not let anything take your self-belief and confidence from you. You have reached the interview round based on your capability.
