So here's a small common sense based tip for those who don't get it naturally -

Interview is about knowing the real you; not the fake you. English may not be your first language and it's perfectly OKAY not to have an American or British accent; unless you are applying to a BPO, Call center job that requires you to have it.

I've come across many candidates who try to impress interviewers with accent. But it never works; in fact, it works against you. Here are couple of things you can keep in your mind -

1. Don't speak faster than you'd do in your mother-tongue.
2. Don't be prompt in answering. Take your time and think before you speak.
3. Don't use long 'aaaaaaaa' in between sentences. It's irritating.

It requires practice to master this skill. But trust me, it won't take more than two weeks if you do it with seriousness.

Hope you'll find this tip useful. Posted in: #Coffee Room
