How to Mold an Interview According to Your Wish

An interview is never easy, especially when something goes wrong on the spur of the moment and you start panicking. Missteps are too common as interviews are never predictable. Even the interviewers never know what they are going to ask. They have just a vague idea of the whole process and they start trying to explore the candidate the way they want. Now, this exercise is not only stressful, but also creates friction and something or the other is bound to go wrong, but your tactfulness lies in turning the interview in your favor, even if something goes against your planned course.

Sometimes, you may even go blank, which is not a big issue as long as you have "recovery" sentences ready. There are surprise questions, but that doesnít mean you should answer them. You can get creative and coin a joke or something to lighten the air or start an icebreaking conversation to make things work for you. Take a deep breath and start all over again.

You can follow the following steps to quickly recover from a misstep in an interview.
Step 1
Repeat the sentence or question asked by the interviewer to understand it in a better way. Focus on your skills and expertise while answering the question. Prompt and honest answer is more important than the right answer; so donít ramble or stammer to look for the right words.

Step 2
If you have misspoken, acknowledge your error and move on. If you want to improve your score and impress the interview board, you can also answer the question again. It reflects confidence and acts as a positive gesture.

Step 3
Those who quickly apologize are always held in high esteem. An error may include stating a name or statistics incorrectly or forgetting an important point. In this case, donít just acknowledge, apologize.

Step 4
Always notice the feedback through the gestures and reactions of the interview board. If a member of the board is frowning or staring at you in disgust or dismay, always take charge of the things, as it indicates something has gone wrong. Always handle such situations by proactively asking if he needs any further information or is the information provided by you inaccurate. Always remember, an interview session is not always a question answer session, rather itís a conversation to know more about your personality and ability to assume the responsibility of the said job profile.

Step 5
Sometimes the interviewer is not a professional interviewer and is a manager or the owner of the company. In this case, he can deviate from the course of the interview and an interval of silence may take place. In such a case, you can steer the interview in the direction, you want it to proceed.

Step 6
Body language is very important, so watch your actions. Are you fiddling or ticking your legs up and down? Or gesturing inappropriately or speaking in a hurried and excited manner. These all are signs of anxiety and nervousness. Just try to get over it and take control of things by taking a deep breath and then try to reverse such behavior. It would be taken as your ability to quickly take charge of the things, despite human weaknessesóa sign of having the ability to manage.
