If you have been unsuccessful at interviews or aptitude tests and you are getting tired and frustrated, don’t just give up yet.
Many people attend interviews and go for aptitude tests only to receive unsuccessful emails, they tend to wonder when the “Congratulations’ email will come.
I know this is quite frustrating and it feels really bad, but I have a good news for you. The fact that you get invitations for interview means you have something on your Cv or resume that recruiters like and they would like to meet you in person.
All you need to do is to show that what they have read about you is true and you have all the competencies and skills required to be suucesful at the role. You have a duty to showcase your competencies at the interview.
To have better results from interviews and aptitude tests, the following steps may help;
1. What exact stage of the recruitment are you having problems? Is it during the interview, case interview or aptitude tests?
2. If it is at the interview stage, you must be able to identify what the issue is. Is it confidence , or nervousness? Are there questions you find difficult that you are unable to give the write answers to? Is it a communication issue? is there a need to enroll in online communication classes to improve your communication skills?
3. Are you having a challenge at the aptitude/recruitment test stage? Do you have issues passing GMAT, SHL , dragnet etc? Is it a personality test problem?
4. Once you know what the problem is, seek for help. If it’s interview, get someone you trust to coach you and probably conduct mock for you. Read articles on interviews and if you have to take online courses, please do. Make adjustments based on the persons observations per your mock or the courses you do.
5. If it is aptitude test, look for someone that can teach you so you can improve your performance. Go on sites like KhanAcademy.
You will have free access to learn Mathematics, English, GMAT and other standardized test. Practice a lot of questions to improve.
5. Make sure you learn anything you need to learn and give it your best. Take it seriously and practice before your next interview or test. I believe you can learn anything you put your mind into, so you don’t have to be scared.
You will be surprised how fast you will improve.
All the best.
