Secret of Success in Personal Interview at SSB


Interview is a simple process where two or more than two people interact to come to a conclusion of the presence of certain traits that one assessor looks in to the other person who is the interviewee and the aspirant in the case of SSB process. Every organisation has this type of testing done before selecting someone to become part of the organisation. PI is a time tested method which surely judges the person in terms of knowledge, communication, confidence and many other qualities that are very specific to organisational roles for which the interviews are organised.

SSB process has many interviews in different forms but one big interview would be with the officer who would be either the President or deputy President of the board. Such people are really senior and have a vast knowledge to judge people at different levels. Many OLQ’s are being judges but apart from that there are several other things that have impact in PI and if such things are taken care of, it could lead to wonders.
  • Intelligence, power of expression
  • Body language, gestures and eye moments
  • Planning and delegating
  • Social adjustment,
  • Dynamic workout
  • Courage, stamina, hard work and determination
  • Appropriate assessment of others
  • True behaviour to the image portrayed on papers

Please remember that the officer is trying to revisit your full life with the intention of just to analyse what’s your background and what impact all your surroundings had on your personality. So be true to whatever you fill in PIQ and don’t take it lightly. Also ensure you do not miss on something important including your extracurricular, achievements (however small or big it might be) Position of responsibilities etc.
  • Interviewer will welcome you with a smile don’t just get afraid of it and he might offer a handshake which should be immediately and warmly accepted by the candidate.
  • Don’t sit without permission of officer. He might delay the orders in order to test something but don’t worry he might not make you stand for long. Just don’t hide the chair and stand in front of it. Ideal way is to stand at side.
  • Be confident and get along with the officer when he tries to build a comfortable environment by asking about you. There are specific things that should be told in such questions and this also decides your fate for future questions so design it in your comfortable way beforehand by practicing it well.
Be true to whatever he tries to get from you whether it’s of your personal life or your professional life. At the end all the images formed by three assessors should match which leads to recommendation. Body language is very important and I would deal it in a separate article. Still If you feel the need of individualised assessment and mocks through mentoring or you have a query bothering your mind which hinders your preparation drop me a mail at jayendrapsingh@gmail.comor add me on Fb and drop in a message. It would be a pleasure to help and resolve queries.
