Mr. Day started with what a personal interview is and how it is different from interrogation, investigation and an interaction;
He stressed on the development of soft skills in a personal interview stating it as a tool for the interviewer to get to know the interviewee more rather a way for rejecting them. He told the participants that the length of the interview has nothing to do with the chances of selection of candidates, giving examples of his student who had an interview of less than five minutes and was selected in an esteemed management college. Mr.A.M Day decoded the personal interview into Knowledge, Communication and Personality. Knowledge according to him should not be restricted to what is taught in class, a candidate must be aware of what is happening around him/her.
The key of better communication, he said, had more to do with listening than with speaking. He explained that correct grammar, audibility and voice modulation are the crucial part of communication. For personality development he suggested SWOT analysis to every student. Ethics and hobbies also add to personality according to Mr. Day.His session was followed by a quick Q and A round where participants inquired about everything from self-introduction to honesty in an interview.
