Not knowing English is never a problem but not knowing how to speak in English is sure a huge problem. Not all corporate company expect their employees to be well versed or fluent in English. They expect certain degree of efficiency in communication in order to understand client’s requirements and to communicate with co-workers who come from various parts of our country. Reading newspapers and novels on a regular basis will help to reach the expected level of communication skill.
With good communication comes a certain amount of confidence. But how to show the HR you are confident. The answer is in your eyes. By eye contact, I don’t intend to say “ stare them at their Eyes” while they are asking questions. An easy trick here is, watch their “ nose tip”. This gives the perception that you are looking into their eyes while conversing. Also, sit erect, do not criss cross your legs or hands. Those are the signs of nervousness. smile when needed. Excuse yourself before entering as well as before leaving.
Statistical data shows that professional HR’s take marks into consideration in last. Generally, any company would expect you to have an average of 60% and above. The more important thing is an application of what you have learnt. Be it electronics or computers, codes and circuits doesn’t matter unless you know how and where to apply it in reality.
With all these three above mentioned qualities, you get a good personality. But as we see in Advertisements clothing and appearance does matter. Look healthy, cut your nails, trim or shave your beard. Formals are preferred over casuals. Appropriate tie and matching socks should boost your outlook. Apart from all of these have a hobby or interest. Ranging from playing a sport or musical instruments or painting or any extra curricular activity will always help.
