New Delhi: Let’s be honest; everybody gets nervous before going in for a job interview. Regardless of the fact that you are damn good at your work, there are other things too that determine the result of an interview.

What needs to be done in an interview is to win over the interviewer psychologically. There are a few common things that every employer looks for and all you need to do is show him/her that you possess all of those qualities, or at least make them believe so.

So, let’s get started on these ‘winning’ qualities one by one:

1- Multi-tasking- It is now a fact that every company wants an employee who is not restricted to essaying just a single role. You have to be a ‘jack of all trades’ without necessarily mastering every one of them. So, at an interview, project as if you are a pro at handling different responsibilities and they’ll not be able to get over you.

2- Punctuality- The famous saying ‘Time is money’ couldn’t stand more true in today’s time. Your punctuality comes into everybody’s notice before any other quality so ensure that you’ll always be on time and submit your reports exactly when said.

3- Obliging- First, get it straight that there are always people above an employee to whom he/she has to listen and obey. And doing so only proves that you are a thorough professional and doesn’t bring down your ego at any level. A boss always likes an employee who acts upon the said task without creating a fuss out of it. Make sure to be of such kind.

4- Action-oriented- It is one thing to put up a plan and another to pull it off. An organisation always needs someone who can act upon the ideas and is able to execute them in the desired way. So, here’s another must have quality.

5- Engaging- Other than the work front, there are certain criteria that employers base selections on. These are mostly based on your personality. Every employer would like to have an employee who could add a positive atmosphere and have good terms with the already existing employees. In short, you should know the art of engaging people.
