What does a good interview look like?
You dress nicely for the interview, reach the venue on time, answer all the questions that the interviewers ask, and get back to your home with a big smile on your face as you have accomplished a big hurdle.
But hold on a moment! In your excitement and enthusiasm for answering the questions, you almost forgot how the interview actually went! Was the interviewer happy with your answers? Most importantly, were you satisfied with your answers?
There’s nothing to worry though, given below are some pointers as to how a good interview should look like.
You have been called for the next round – If you have been given a green flag and called for the next interview round, you can be positive about the fact that the interviewer has liked you. No HR manager will waste his time with aspirants in whom he finds no spark. Therefore, if you have been selected for the next round, it is an indication that the interviewer sees you as a possible candidate to join the company.
A warm long talk – Usually, if the interviewers like a candidate, they show their interest in him by talking about the culture of their company, opportunities available for the candidate to grow himself being around in the company and clearing his doubts about the company. These are definitely optimistic moments for you and a sign that they want you in their team!
Hints about expected salary and date of joining – One of the perfect indication that your session went well is when a manager asks you the date of joining i.e in case you are not a fresher, how much time will it take you to complete all the formalities to leave your current job and join them. Your chances of getting the job becomes more when a manager asks you the salary that you expect, it surely means that he wants to see you in their squad. He is just making calculations over his mind that how much they will have to spend on you (cost to company) and whether you’ll be an asset for them.
