IMPORTANCE OF INTERVIEW SKILLS:
Basically, Communication Skills are very much needed for an interview to upgrade your interview skills.
Before going for an interview, you need to research the organization. It will help you a lot when they ask you what do you know about this company?
Prepare well regarding the job description of the company that you are applying for and update your skills for job requirements.
Dress well and be neat and reach the destination 10 mins before to avoid any discrepancies.
Every bit is crucial, and it is observed by the interviewer. But we don’t keep it in mind and sometimes we will be very normal or casual.
For an interview, we see more candidates will be coming and they need to filter the people, so you need to have good Communication Skills to win in this war.
You need to be very careful starting from entering the interviewer room and closing the door after leaving the room of the interviewer. Your interview skills are judged from the start to end.
You need to Listen actively to the interviewer and respond properly.
Employers always look for a positive attitude, communication skills, teamwork, willingness to learn, and adaptability.
Don’t say all straight forward, be little diplomatic.
Never say no, or don’t give him a chance that you are not fit for the company. Never stair at eyes unnecessarily at the interviewer.
Be stiff and have a healthy conversation without any grammatical mistakes. Avoid MTI’s (Mother Tongue Influence).
Mainly don’t say any negative points even if you have it in your previous company because it creates a negative impression on you that, after leaving you may say it
If they ask about your Strengths and Weaknesses, then? Yep, it is a tough query. You surely say Strengths. But for weakness don’t say I don’t have any. Every human will have, but here the interviewer wants to judge your spontaneity and honesty.

Speak your weaknesses in such a way that it should turn into a positive way.
E.g.: Bad hand-writing (practicing daily and now it is almost good)
Poor communication skills (practicing daily and now it is quite good).
If the interviewer tries to ask that, do you have any questions, say
Always get prepared to ask something regarding the company policies or responsibilities of the job role which you applied for.

So, to win an interview, brush up your interview skills thoroughly.
All the best.
