How to answer “why there is few years of gap after graduation” in an interview?
This blog post is with reference to govt. job/PSUs/PSBs interview.
There is no need to feel insecure about having a gap of 2-3 years after your graduation when appearing for interview.
You are as genius, talented & deserving as others. May be more deserving.
Because, you are brave and were looking for better opportunities & didn’t settled for some shitty option to just “show to the world that you are earning something”.
The more important thing is that you didn’t compromised with your dreams & remained focused & determined even in most devastating situations & circumstances.
□ Interview is just the test of personality. If you could clear the written examination & reach to the interview, it reflects your will-power & determination~ a must have personality trait.
□ You will score better if you could confidently say that you were only focusing on better opportunities & were working hard for them & ignored every other”option for which your inner-soul” was not convinced to.
To further support your answer, you can quote Jim Carrey,
If you give up on your dreams, what’s left?”.
□ Even there is no harm in accepting that in earlier examinations you made more mistakes & therefore couldn’t reach to the interview. (it does not mean that you were less competent, destiny also plays a role). But in last few years you rectified those mistakes & overcame them. It will make a good impression.
At last, don’t be afraid of anything. You just have to speak about your life (*no bookish answer shall be able to convince the interviewer~ only your inner-voice will!).
