Job Interview is a horrendous challenge for job aspirants! Despite living in a smart world, the self-effacing attitude of the candidates towards interview challenges has not got any shrewder, sad but true fact! Most of the people attending job interview do not think they are capable enough to outdo the challenge. In a survey steered by LinkedIn, they could infer that 52% of the respondents commented the job interviews as ‘moderate to extremely challenging’ because of the lack of confidence and confusions.
The ability of the candidate is assessed by the interview panel based on how well the candidate presents himself, the clarity in conveying matters, language expertise etc. In order to stop these interview nerves getting the best of you, LinkedIn have come up with some new powerful ideas.
