Being punctual means you value time and people. When you are giving a brief professional introduction about yourself, you must keep track of time.

A person who is punctual will be able to join meetings and conference calls on time.

Listen to the Interviewer

The moment your brief professional introduction starts, the interviewer will start asking some basic questions about yourself. To come up with good answers, you need to be a good listener. A person with good listening skills always comes up with great ideas. Also, if you are not able to understand what the interviewer is talking about or what he/ she just said, you can simply ask, ‘Can you please repeat/ come again?’ You need to match your speaking and listening style with the interviewer.

Learn About the Company & Job

Before appearing for your professional interview, you need to take some time to research the company and the job for which you are applying.
