Hi All,

I am in the process of preparing for interviews. Few doubts:

    1. I have got feedback from seniors that I have a habit of blabbering and I take unnecessary pauses between the sentence. This makes the recipient less interested in the conversation. An alum has suggested to use the STAR technique in answering behavioral questions. Need guidance on how to improve this aspect.

    2. Financial stability is one of the most important reason I am planning to do an MBA. How to best communicate the same if asked WHY MBA?

    3. Almost all interviewer asks - 'Questions for me?' I don't have anything solid to ask. Neither want to ask anything lame nor want to come out as someone who isn't inquisitive. What are some of the things one can ask.

Hey,

Congratulations! Because if you're preparing for interviews then it means you have received a few invites. Hope you crack them. Let's dive in:

1. It is a very common error while interviewing. Basically, whenever you are thinking of a response or are formulating a sentence you use fillers such as "so" or "umm". To avoid this you should have your stories straight and more importantly learn to tolerate silence. What may seem like 30 seconds in an interview is actually only 3 seconds. Pause, think and answer.

2. Everyone pursues an MBA to improve his/her current salary. I don't think you need to emphasize on this aspect. It goes without saying. Focus more on your qualitative post MBA goals.

3. Aha, yes this is an important question! And I can't offer you an answer for this because firstly, this reflects your research of that particular school and secondly, this question changes from school-to-school. But you should definitely try to ask a question.

Hope this helps! Let me know if you'd like to practice some mock interviews. Good Luck!

Best,
