STEP 5-UPLOAD YOUR PLUSES

STEP5-SHOWCASE YOUR POSITIVE POINTS

In many interviews the candidates fail to showcase their plus points. To make the interviewing officer accept you as the most suitable candidate is a very difficult task. This task can be eased by helping him with presenting your plus points.

You must make a list of your positives and prepare a readymade answer for this question. It is very obvious that the interviewing officer is interested in knowing how good you are. So a humble and yet confident reply will satisfy any interviewing officer. You must try to avoid saying that you are simple, honest, true, trustworthy, and sincere, etc, etc. You can use these adjectives only if you have a valid incident or backup story to tell. The moment you say that you have these qualities; the interviewing officer is going to ask you to prove it to him. So try to keep yourself on the safer side before attempting these questions. Prepare the answers to the probable questions that he will derive from what you have told him earlier.

Some people start telling about their negative traits or negative points once asked about their positive points. This is a very risky thing and should never be done. Since this is a sure shot question I advice all of you to prepare well for giving reply when asked about your positive or plus points.

Positive points include:

  • Physical fitness
  • Technical qualification
  • Experience
  • Punctuality
  • Computer savyness
  • Special interest in certain subjects
  • Special skills
  • Ability to persuade people
  • NCC certificates
  • Oration skills
  • Karate
  • Swimming

dear vijay kumar, some times we need to work and act smart……if you know that if you tell in a interview that past three times you were kicked out of your job for slapping your boss, then no one will have the guts to take you in their organisation….you need to know what to speak and what not to…
