HR is a person who first evaluates you to enter the organization or not. The best way to crack an interview is not by giving perfect and standard answers to the questions but by directing the hr ask questions that you are comfortable to answer.
This can be and has to be achieved to make you comfortable in a certain recruitment process that is tough to crack.
- For example, there are high chances for an HR to ask questions on your academic score, if the same are highlighted in bold than just leaving them normal!
Most of us generally have a problem with our percentages, so there are more chances that HR might ask the reasons for the low percentage?
And this should be your time to invite HR into your Resume.
You answer can be, “Dear sir/ma’am my percentages are poor I agree.
Right from my childhood, I always thought that percentages are just a number. I have realized, it is not the numbers that decide my potential, but my interpersonal skills, dedication, Team effort, hard work towards my job that decides our productivity, in turn, my results.
I always focused on these areas rather than on my percentage, apart from maintaining a decent score as you can see.
Now the HR takes an interest to check your interpersonal skills. Now she started acting as per your direction.
And here your mentioned skills might impress him/her.
- When the question “tell me about yourself” is asked, we generally start speaking in a very lengthy manner. Instead use a tricky word such as numismatist in your self-introduction, which might leave the HR excited about! (Btw, Numismatics is the study or collection of foreign currencies).
This way, you can take your hr completely under your control at every step possible.
(Note: Use unique and meaningful words that will help you stay ahead in the race).
Make sure you are ready with your answers about your interpersonal skills and wait for your chances to direct your HR into your Resume.
Now your personal interests and hobbies are a bonus that might act as a wild card for you, provided if your HR has the same interest on hobbies.
