After graduation, the first thing that comes in our mind is to get a job and enter corporate world. We hunt for jobs and prepare for interviews. Interviews make us nervous and anxious. No matter how much you prepare, at some or the other time we go blue. Interview is the first step to one’s career. It is important to prepare with adequate research and answer the interview questions with grace and confidence. Confidence is the key for every interview. Be confident and use fluent English to succeed in the interview. A key ingredient of a successful interview is excellent communication skills.

Dream-Job

However, in every interview,the same  set of easy questions are asked which make people nervous. One of them is, “What is your dream job?” Answering this question might seem easy as everyone has a dream job/ company in their mind. But before answering the question, wait! The answer for this question needs to be articulated to the point. Below are few simple tips that can be used to impress the interviewer.

1. Highlight your skills

Start with the skills that you are good at and enjoy doing it.  At the same time, don’t hide your weaknesses. You can explain how and what steps are you taking to improve them and grow your career. You can use below responses:
