10 Mistakes to Avoid in IBPS SO interview 2023

1. Not Preparing for the Interview

The key to any interview is preparation. Lack of preparation puts you at a significant disadvantage in comparison to other applicants and will cost you a job before you ever enter the building. As a result, always get ready for the interview.

2. Last-moment Preparation

Many candidates spend the night before an interview stressing out and conducting last-minute preparation, which makes them look exhausted and increases the likelihood that they will forget something important. A fatigued appearance will give the interviewer the wrong impression. So, always make an effort to get a decent night’s sleep the night before an interview.

3. Lack of Confidence

In every element of life, confidence is crucial. It is more difficult to handle any issue if a person lacks confidence. If a person gets anxious during a bank interview, then he/she becomes unable to respond to any of the interviewer’s questions and goes blank.

4. Lack of Knowledge

 Candidates need to be familiar with IBPS SO and the work they will be doing there before attending the interview. This will dazzle the interviewers and subsequently help the candidates feel more confident.

5. Inappropriate Dressing

The way you dress is important when doing a formal interview. As the saying goes, “The first impression is the last impression,” so dressing formally is advised while attending an interview. Avoid bringing anything to an interview that you might not need.

6. Showing Desperation for the Job

Interviewers might learn a lot about you through the interview. However, they don’t have to be completely familiar with you. The interview panel is interested in learning how you might benefit them. So, pay attention to how your abilities may benefit the bank rather than why you are desperate for the job.

7. Not Having Eye Contact

While responding to the questions on the bank exam, the candidate must maintain proper eye contact with the interviewer. This demonstrates the candidates’ assurance as well.

8. Moving Quickly

The candidates must not move quickly or briskly while they are at the interview location. They must maintain composure and work to hide their nervousness. Such a gait might not necessarily leave a favorable impression on the interviewer(s). The slightest behaviors will be observed and scrutinized, therefore the applicants must take care not to make a bad impression.

9. Being Impatient

The candidate must not be aimlessly moving around. The candidate must wait patiently for his or her turn while seated. Avoid wandering about the property pointlessly.

10. Excess Bookish Knowledge

The candidate’s knowledge is merely one factor in the bank interview. In addition to this, it is also dependent on other factors. The contestant must refrain from providing responses that they have plagiarised from books.

In India, a sizable portion of those seeking government employment chooses to take several competitive tests; nevertheless, while doing well on the written test, many ultimately fail to advance to the interview stage. The advice provided in this article will assist candidates in honing their interviewing techniques for the IBPS SO.
