Professor Borommeo had listed few advices for all interviewees in India.
1. When interviewing candidates for our MBA, the first thing we want to see is whether two years down the road you can make a good first impression on a recruiter for a top multinational bank, consulting firm, FMCG, or manufacturer. Good grooming counts a lot towards making that first impression. Look fresh, like you just had a shower. Dress as if you’re applying for an investment-banking job in New York or Singapore. But wear your necktie properly. Get a haircut. You don’t need a manicure but your nails should be clean. Socks should match your suit and your shoes. They should cover your legs when you sit, and not sag. Shoes should not be dusty, muddy, or scuffed. Ladies should go for the “executive” look. Skirt or pants, blazer over white blouse, always works.
2. Arriving late for an interview is definitely bad form. It says you can’t plan ahead. Besides, all that running and huffing and puffing will make you sweat buckets, especially in Mumbai heat. That will ruin your appearance (see Item 1 above). But arriving too early (poor planning again?) can also be inconvenient for your interviewer unless you can stay out of sight, and out of his/her way, especially if s/he is busy having breakfast/lunch, or still preparing for the interview session.
3. Patience is a virtue.
