Telephonic Interview tips, What to do and not do | HOW TO CRACK TELEPHONIC INTERVIEW

Telephone interviews are now becoming the most popular types of interviews. Due to the advantages of less time consumption, less cost for conducting interview, many interviews conducted in less time, etc. it has now become one of the type of basic clearance or barrier which one has to clear to appear for a face to face interview.
Many big companies use telephone interviews in order to shortlist a few candidates out of many. Now to get into those few selected candidates you need to prepare a little for the phone interviews

Make sure that before you appear for a telephone interview, you are fully prepared to face it
It is suggested to find a silent a calm place so that there is no distractions and disturbances in the communication process.
Move into a place where you can think positively and can answer your questions asked to you with a free mind.
Keep your resume, a notebook, a pen and some notes already prepared about commonly asked questions in interview.
Try to disable or divert other calls which may come to you while the interview is going on.
“Practice makes a man perfect.”
Practicing is very important as it will bring some confidence to you. You can practice a rehearsal with your friends.
What you should possibly do while appearing for a telephone interview:
1) Address the interviewer professionally.
Introduction and addressing the interviewer needs to be formal. Address them with proper salutations, don’t do a blunder by calling them with their names.

2) Speak in a uniform voice
Don’t rush in a hurry to say what you want to say, answer them in a pretty low and formal voice.

3) Take your time.
Don’t rush the interview. If you’re feeling nervous take a moment or two to collect your thoughts.

4) Listen to the complete statement of the interviewer and then answer.
Answer the questions which are being asked. Do not make the mistake of telling the interviewer what you want to tell them. Give them the answers to their questions.
Note: Let them complete themselves before you answer. Don’t be in a hurry of missing the train, trust me I can’t say about the train but you will definitely miss the job.

5)  Ask them questions
Asking questions implements a good level of conversation between both, the interviewer and the candidate. Most the jobs that require an employee with better speaking skills are recruited through the phone interview.
This is a straight way for the employer to examine the speaking skills of the candidate. Job interviews for call centers, online data entry, marketing, public relations, etc. are done on phone.

6) Remember to smile.
Experts say that smiling puts you in a better state of mind and will project a positive image to the listener. This will also keep your voice calm and help you answer politely with the interviewer.

7) Don’t forget to breathe.
It will help you stay calm and sound more relaxed. Interviews are times when people generally feel nervous, breathing normally will make you confident about yourself and your answers. If you don’t breathe well you may have some errors while speaking fluently.

8) Be prepared with “Notes”.
Be prepared with some notes about questions that are generally asked in interviews, this will help you a lot.

9) Keep a glass of water handy.
Nothing is worse than having a dry mouth. Some people may have the problem to their mouths drying during the interview. Don’t worry about it, this is just because you were feeling a little nervous at the time of the interview. Drinking water in regular breaks while listening to the interviewer will solve your problem.

10) Give them a researched answer.
Be ready with a little research about the firm which is going to call you for the phone interview. Answering their questions with respect to their values will help you to finish your interview a little earlier and a good chance of getting selected as well, because this trick can impress the employer and he will really appreciate your motivation for working with them.

What NOT to do during the phone interview:
1) Don’t eat anything, drink or chew a gum.
You may feel that these activities are not being noticed by the interviewer, but trust me you are fooling yourself. These activities will distract your mind from thinking and you will end up answering worthless answers.

2) Avoid smoking.
Smoking is an addiction with almost every fifth guy. Smoking may cause you to cough loud during the interview which is not a good sign. Even if you are a regular smoker please avoid smoking during the interview as this will also distract your mind and your will end up with a blunder.

3) Avoid interrupting the interviewer.
As mentioned earlier, let the interviewer complete himself and only then you should answer. You don’t have the rights of interrupting them as they are not your friends. The employer will take this as a sign of over smartness and will straight away reject you.

4) Answers in “yes” and “no” will not do.
Elaborate your answers, provide examples if applicable. Elaborating yourself also adds to your speaking skills which many call centers and telemarketing companies would want in their employees. You can use cheat nodes in case you find difficult to remember big sentences.

5) Avoid being too casual/informal.
Don’t try to be much formal by just supporting them on their statements, many interviewers play a trick to find how logical thinker or creative the candidate is. Remember that they are not hiring a servant, they are hiring an employee.

6) Avoid Jumbling up with your answers .
Your answers should be understood straight forward, don’t try to answer much deeper, answer only what is asked to you.

7) Avoid showing your nervousness
Avoid using sounds like “aa…a” in your answers, this will never help you. Be confident about what you are saying.

Last words,
Phone interviews are the easiest one to master as you don’t have the fear of facing the interviewer face to face, but on the other hand a little preparation is very important.
Many leading companies knock-out a large number of job applications by conducting phone interview before the face-off interview, it is advisable to follow the dos and don’ts suggested in this article to nail the telephone interview.
Readers will be appreciated if they share their experiences and views about the phone interview.

How Answer Behavioral Interview Questions | Top 10 Sample/Example

Simple steps to answer Behavioral Questions
Behavioral questions are the most crucial part of an interview, these kind of questions do require a homework done from your side in advance to crack them. These kind of questions are asked by the interviewer to check your abilities in applying the knowledge and experience from your past in the situations or circumstances that may probably occur in the future.
To solve this question you should have good thinking and vocabulary skills. These type of questions check your practical knowledge of how would you handle situations practically if they arise in your profession in future.
Cracking these questions is very simple if you have done your homework.
Before discussing on how to answer them, I want you to do your homework. Take a notebook and a pen. Start thinking in your past and list out some of the events about your education, work experience, community work, charity etc.  that had proved these qualities of you:
        • Leadership
        • Flexibility
        • Motivation
        • Commitment
        • Initiative
        • Teamwork
        • Responsibility
        • Decision making
        • Communication
        • Trustworthiness
        • Problem solving.
For example:
If in your life time so far, you had witnessed that one of your decisions proved to be very beneficial either for you, you’re classmates, your school or your friend. Just list that event in the book, write about what problem was your friend facing and what decision you gave to him that was beneficial to either of you.

Similarly, think of some different events that highlighted the qualities of you mentioned above.
Answering the Behavioral questions
To answer any behavioral question, you just need to follow the STAR format.

Now what is this STAR format?
STAR stands for Situation, Task, Action and Result.
           The interviewer will ask you to mention about your abilities and an event of your life that
           highlighted the use of that ability.
           What you were trying to achieve?
           What problems did you face and what use did you make of your abilities to get things going in
           your way.
          After performing the action what result did you achieve?

Here are a few questions that will help you to understand how to deal with behavioral questions in a better way:
Example 1:
“Give me an example of a time when you set a target and successfully achieved it”
           My role as an event manager was to manage to host best possible event in a given budget we
           had collected from our sponsors.
          I took the initiative and combines two floors of the college building rather than taking a private
          hall for the same. I had conducted a meet with the participants and the event heads for each
          event. We agreed a condition to make full use of what we had and minimizing the cost up to
          the lowest we could.
         All the event heads agreed to this and we had all of them working in a team.
        As a result of this more efficient working time we hosted a successful event on time and reduced
        costs by 20%. This new way of using the college premises has now been implemented as a
        permanent venue to host the events of the college.

Example 2:
 “Provide an example of when you showed initiative and took the lead.”
             In a college technical festival
            There was a technical problem in the LAN network of the college where the server was not
            functioning well. This network was going to be used for hosting a various gaming events in   
            the college fest.
            I took an initiative and got a few of my friends with me and replaced the complete connection
            network with another server.
           We successfully managed to shift to a new server in less than an hour and the events were
           conducted successfully.

Example 3:
 “Tell me about a situation where you have had to speak with an unhappy customer.”
           Two years back, I was working in an insurance company
           I met a person who was initially cheated by some chit fund company in his past, he was not
           willing to take a policy for the very same reason that he was cheated initially and was not
           happy with policy I had presented to him.
           I explained him about my firm’s statistics and records over the past years, I also made him
           consult a few of our policy holders.
          I successfully managed him to convince him to prefer my firm to take a new policy.

More tips to tackle the Behavioral questions:

1) Select a Strong Example:
Choose a genuine and a strong example that will prove your ability in a better way and apart from that it should also make a respectful image of yours in the mind of the interviewer.

2) Be Specific About Your Actions
Be specific of what type of actions you are going to use to explain your answers to the interviewers
Try to use the best of your vocabulary skills to explain them.

3) Practice
“Practice makes a man perfect”

Due to nervousness in the interview hall you may feel a little short of words while explaining your answer, so it is advisable to practice as many times as possible before the interview.

Top 10 Behavioral Interview Questions with Answers Sample/Example

Some sample behavioral questions you should practice well in advance:
1) Give an example of a problem you had with your classmate and how you overcame it?
2) Describe a situation when you had to make a new decision all of a sudden?

Mastering a Successful Interview | Crack Interview | Top 15 Common/FAQ Internship Interview questions with answers | Best Interview Tips/Tricks 
All in one successful interview secret and story.

What is an Interview?
Interview as defined on Wikipedia “An interview is a conversation between two or more people where questions are asked by the interviewer to elicit facts or statements from the interviewee. Interviews are a standard part of journalism and media reporting, but are also employed in many other situations, including qualitative research.”

Interview is a formal process of qualitative research which generally has an employer or a hiring manager called the interviewer who asks questions to the candidate to know about his experiences and abilities. Interviewing, when considered as a method for conducting qualitative research, is a technique used to understand the experiences of others.

I am sure, since you are here you are definitely going to appear for a job interview or interview for various posts in an organization. Interviews are all about research, vocabulary skills, knowledge and speaking skills to put forward your abilities to get a job.

If you are going to appear for an interview, here are the steps from the basics you need to follow to master a successful interview.

“Congratulations Mr. XYZ,
You have been selected for the interview.”

This was the message you were waiting for, and the time has come to prove your abilities. The time has come to walk for the interview. But before you step out, please complete the following homework for the Interview.

Research about the company is the most important job you need to do before you walk in for the interview. 30% of the questions asked by the interviewer is about the company. They want you to know about the company where you have applied for a job before you walk in for the interview. Now the question is what really you need to know about the firm.
Many candidates do this by going to the company’s website and checking out the ‘About us’ pages on their website. This is not a wrong step, you will get the following details about the company there such as:
     • Establishment year.
     • Their achievements.
     • Their Head employees
     • Their Branches, etc.

But this doesn’t matter much helpful to you and hence it is an incomplete research. You need to know the following thing about the company very well:
     • History of their business
     • What types of services does the company deal with.
     • What are current projects they are trying to develop?
     • Number of employees the company has recruited.
     • Market share.
     • Competitors, etc.

This research will help you to frame your answers to behavioural and hypothetical questions asked by the interviewer with respect to their company’s values.

Interview Questions
After getting a brief understanding about the company, now is the time for you to prepare yourselves to answer the questions that will be asked to you at the interview.

Generally the interviews start with some formal and basic questions and then they follow behavioural and hypothetical questions.
What are the formal questions?
Formal questions deals with the interviewer asking you to introduce yourself, asking you about what you know about the company, your purpose of joining, your ambition and motivation.
These questions are the basics and you can expect them to be asked for any job interview no matter you have applied as a pizza delivery boy or a manager.
There are hundreds of such questions, but the most frequently asked of them are shortlisted below:
Top 15 Most Common Interview Questions | FAQ
1) “Introduce yourself” or “Tell us about yourself”
This is a very common question which is asked, and a good preparation for this question can serve as a solid first impression of you to the interviewer. You should be prepared for this before entering the interview hall.
      • Say about yourself. Introduce your name, your qualifications from XYZ   
        College, your achievements, etc.
      • Be prepared for it from your place and do have a practice of it with your friends
      • Speak fluent English, use the best of your vocabulary skills.
        Point to Remember:
     • Do not talk about the members in your family and their business.
     • Do not talk about your friends and what are they doing.
     • Don’t even mention the recent place where you go for a picnic or the latest movie you 
       watched, this might seem a little funny but there have been such cases and those candidates were
       fired straight away.
A good introduction completes half of your interview successfully, rather on the opposite side a bad introduction can spoil your interview as well.

2) Why did you leave your last job?
This is a common question which is asked to people who were already employed before coming for this interview.
      • Tell them that you are interested in working with them and you left the job because you found
         new opportunities here.
      • Don’t mention them about the salary even if you were paid less there.
      • Don’t talk something wrong about your last job, employer or the firm even if you didn’t like it.

What to do if you were fired?
Be honest!!
If you were fired then please tell them the truth, because they will have a background check before recruiting you. And if they found it later then this will create problems for you and your career.

3) What is your greatest strength?
Do say true about what all abilities you possess, because whatever you say will be examined by asking behavioural and hypothetical questions. And if you fail there, then you will definitely loose the job.

4) Tell us about your weaknesses
Your weaknesses are that information about you that should not be shared to everyone. If you mention some weaknesses then make sure your weaknesses do not affect your job.
Don’t even say that you are perfectionist with no weaknesses, because if you will dare to say this then this will be one of the interview which you will remember for your lifetime for sure.

5) What do you know about the company?
You can share the research about the company you have made before coming for the interview. Do mention the positive points about the company and the projects that the company is working on these days.
You can suggest something from your side about how you could bring some vital changes to these projects and how will your knowledge be contributing to it.
Point to remember:
Don’t take anything ill about the company or else your job will be in trouble.

6) Where else have you applied apart from here?
Don’t lie this information if you have applied somewhere else, but in case if you have applied at many places then do just mention only a few of them.

7) Where do you see yourself in the next five years?
This question is asked to know how ambitious you are. This is an easy question nut still people make blunder.
The most common blunders are that people mention themselves working at a bigger firm than where they have applied for, even if you are taking this job for learning or for temporary and later on you are going to kick this job, please do not mention about this.
A good answer to this can be a researched one such as “I find myself at the post of a senior in this company and would work hard with the other employees to take this company on a much higher level.”
Such answers will give an impact that you are really bothered about your work and position in the company.

8) Why have you applied for this job?
This is a fair enough easy question. You can say that you are interested in the opportunities that will be given to you by this job and you want to utilize your abilities for the development of this company.
Please don’t mention that you are here for money,
Everyone works for money, no one is here to hire himself for free. The employer knows the fact that you are here for money but he asks this question to you to see how you look at this job.
So better avoid saying money.

9) Why should we hire you for this job?
This is an innocent question and the best answer to it is because you are the best person who is fit for this job.
Some candidates to say about their achievements and abilities, but trust me guys all that is mentioned in your resume. Don’t make a blunder of it by explaining stories about your past to them.
You can add about how your abilities will prove as an asset for the company,

If you have applied as a marketing manager, you can say that you are good in interacting with people and you have good contacts in various industrial and service sectors which will help the company to maximize its profits.

10) How do you handle pressure?
You should answer this question in a positive manner, if you say that you lose your temper or just keep yourself away from work under pressure then that will not help you get the job.
Instead you can say that you handle pressure properly and add one of your life event as an example where you came under pressure conditions and performed well.

11) How do you handle change?
This is one of the questions that makes the candidate think over for his answer.
A best answer to it can be that you look towards the change in a positive way rather than opposing the cause for it, you work harder and get the things done in your favour.

12) What is an ideal job for you?
Many would answer earning billion dollars for just working for 2-3 hours per day or perhaps playing cricket for the country.
These type of answers generally don’t help much.
I would suggest you to keep it simple and just say about what kind of job you have applied for in that firm. This will leave a positive impact on interviewers about you.

13) What motivates you to work hard?
Everyone is motivated by the salary they get for their work, the bonuses, the promotions, etc.
I would suggest don’t mention it directly, add some role of the company that motivates you as well
You can say that the promotions you get after working harder for this company to take this company to a next level of success makes you feel happy and motivates you.

14) How would your colleagues describe you?
This is the chance given to you to show about your attributes and talk something impressive about yourself. Don’t waste this opportunities by just saying them in simple English, use your vocabulary skills to describe yourself in some powerful words such as
      • Resourceful
      • Respectful
      • Creative
      • Committed
      • Conscientious
      • Dynamic
      • Hard Worker
      • Attentive
      • Confident
      • Trustworthy
      • Direct
      • Persistent
      • Methodical
      • Motivated
      • Objective
      • Tenacious
      • Sociable
      • Reliable
      • Trustworthy.

15) What are your salary expectations?
This is the question where many of them get tricked. Earning as much money as possible is the final goal of every candidate applying for the job. Many end up sharing their personal expectations, but this doesn’t help. The best way to answer this question would require some research about the market value of this job.
If you are looking for a job that pays a salary of Rs.10 lakhs per annum and the job for which you have applied pays you only Rs.5-6 lakhs, that will not help you because even if you get the job your focus will be diverted to jobs which pay you up to your expectations and you will end up losing your interest in the current work you are doing.
Show the employer that you researched the job and you know how much it pays.

A bad answer can be “I’m easy with whatever you guys will be paying me”.
A good answer can be the researched one “From my research, I know the salary range for this position is between Rs.5-6 lakhs per annum, and having worked in the industry for 5 years I feel that my value would fit into this range”.

Last words:
The questions listed above were the most frequent general questions asked in various interviews. As mentioned earlier there may be thousands of such questions. We will appreciate if the readers share about their experiences and thoughts as well in the comment box. Readers can feel free to come up with other questions and we will find a better solution for their questions as well.

Automate/Scheduled Database Backup SQL Server 2012 Express | SSIS | T-SQL

Here we will create and ETL which will keep full database backup of last 7 days. And will remove the older backup file/folder with are older than 7 days.
This we will do by SSIS and we will use T-sql script for take backup.
This T-Sql Script will take backup of all your database excluding ('master','model','msdb','tempdb') databases.
I think that you know SSIS, So lets create an ETL(dtsx file)/SSIS project
Drag and drop following 7 containers and connect with your server.

1). Check Database Integrity
(Check the allocation and structural integrity of user and system tables, and indexes in the database)
2.) Shrink Database Task
(It reduces the size of SQL Server database data and log files)
3). Reorganize Index
(Reorganizes indexes in SQL Server database tables and views)
4). Rebuild Index
(Rebuilds indexes in SQL Server database tables and views)
5). History Cleanup
(History Cleanup task, a package can delete historical data related to backup and restore activities, SQL Server Agent jobs, and database maintenance plans.)
6). Take the full backups and store it in E:\Vikas Ahlawat\CURRNET PROJECTS\DB Backup SSIS\DB_BackupPlan\DB_Backup_Daily\<yyyymmdd>\
Following is the T-Sql backup script you can use
 EXEC SP_CONFIGURE 'show advanced options', 1  
 EXEC SP_CONFIGURE 'xp_cmdshell', 1  
 DECLARE @folderdate VARCHAR (50) --The subdir for my backups with Format YYYYMMDD  
 DECLARE @cmd VARCHAR (4000) --The command to create Subdir  
 DECLARE @name VARCHAR(50) -- database name   
 DECLARE @path VARCHAR(256) -- path for backup files   
 DECLARE @fileName VARCHAR(256) -- filename for backup   
 SELECT @folderdate = CONVERT(VARCHAR(20), GETDATE(), 112)   
 SET @path = 'C:\Backup\' + @folderdate + '\'  
 SELECT @cmd = 'md "'+@path+'"'  
 EXEC master..xp_cmdshell @cmd, no_output  
 DECLARE db_cursor CURSOR FOR   
 SELECT name   
 FROM master.dbo.sysdatabases   
 WHERE name NOT IN ('master','model','msdb','tempdb')  
 OPEN db_cursor    
 FETCH NEXT FROM db_cursor INTO @name    
     SET @fileName = @path + @name + '.bak'   
     FETCH NEXT FROM db_cursor INTO @name    
 CLOSE db_cursor    
 DEALLOCATE db_cursor   
 EXEC SP_CONFIGURE 'xp_cmdshell', 0  
 EXEC SP_CONFIGURE 'show advanced options', 0  
7). Delete the backup files which are older than 7 days. (Powershell Script)
For this you can user Powershell Script, to create it use notepad file and write the following code and save as .ps1 file.

$Today = Get-Date

$DaysToKeep = "7"

$TargetFolder = "E:\Vikas Ahlawat\CURRNET PROJECTS\DB Backup SSIS\DB_BackupPlan\DB_Backup_Daily"

$LastWrite = $Today.AddDays(-$DaysToKeep)


$Folders = Get-ChildItem -path $TargetFolder |

Where {$_.psIsContainer -eq $true} |

Where {$_.LastWriteTime -le "$LastWrite"}


foreach ($Folder in $Folders)


    if ($Folder -eq $null) {

        write-host "No folders to delete" -foregroundcolor "Green"


    else {

        write-host "Deleting "$Folder.FullName -foregroundcolor "Red"

        Remove-Item $Folder.FullName -recurse -Confirm:$false



After create this you can use this script in SSIS by using Execute process task

It will automate your backup process. So you don't need to take backup manually or delete older backup file. All thing is done by above ETL. You can schedule it as a Job in Sql server Agent. Which will run on a particular time everyday.
