Prepare Good CV :-
  • Know your CV very well and Revise Everything Written in your CV . And make sure you have only mentioned what you know properly .
  • Do not mention salary details on your CV. Rather, salary negotiations are something you do at a later stage in the interviewing process. By mentioning your salary requirements in your CV, the recruiter might look at it as a red flag that you’re too focused on the money.
  • Properly include the personal information like Your name, phone number, email, and address are all the personal details a CV needs to have.
  • Poor Formatting is the one of the main reason for rejection of your CV . Generally a recruiter spends no more than 6-8 seconds reading a CV. If your CV doesn’t catch their attention in these brief seconds, they’re simply going to skip over it and move on to the next candidate.
  • If your CV has spelling errors, typos, and bad grammar all over it, you might be seen as a lousy communicator, careless, or uninterested in the position.

What's your salary history?
When you are interviewing for a new job, it is common practice for the company to ask you about your salary history. I typically want to know what the candidate's base salary is, if they receive any bonus, the average bonus amount, and any additional compensation or perks, such as 500k matching, stock grants or stock options, paid time off and how much they are required to pay towards their medical premiums.

Why are you leaving your current job?
This is a toughie, but one you can be sure you'll be asked. Definitely keep things positive-you have nothing to gain by being negative about your past employers. Instead, frame things in a way that shows that you're eager to take on new opportunities and that the role you're interviewing for is a better fit for you than your current or last position. For example, “I'd really love to be part of product development from beginning to end, and I know I'd have that opportunity here.” And if you were let go? Keep it simple: “Unfortunately, I was let go,” is a totally OK answer.

What do you know about our company?
You always want to make sure that you're pretty familiar with the company that you're interviewing with. Nothing looks worse than a candidate who knows nothing about the company they say they're interested in working for. Find out everything you can about the company, its culture and its goals. You will also want to know how the company is positioned in its market as well as who its major competitors are.
