Don't worry, It would be general interview but do prepare some basic facts and figures of MCB and be well aware of yourself. Wish you best of luck

[QUOTE=Muhammad Arif Shah;230382]what should be the effective reply 4 y joining MCB ???[/QUOTE]
MCB is the strongest bank of the country and I would like to become the part of the organization which is having quiet decent repute in market so that i can contribute positively towards its business objectives and improve my skills as well.

[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]It was a nice interview and funny as well. Some of the weak areas which I found in your responses are as follows:[/FONT][/COLOR]

[QUOTE=rishzzz;231421]
[B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Interviewer:[/FONT][/COLOR][/B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Aap ki hobbies kiya kiya hain[/FONT][/COLOR]
[B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Me:[/FONT][/COLOR][/B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana] Used to play cricket but now i rarely find time to play sports, internet browsing, current affairs, [/FONT][/COLOR][COLOR=fuchsia][FONT=Verdana]political debates[/FONT][/COLOR]
[/QUOTE]

[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Avoid showing your political tendency in any professional interview in financial sector for no one likes it. Person tilted towards political issues is unwanted in financial sector because it is perceived and most of the time proved that such employees cannot deliver what is required from them. They spoil corporate culture and they keep engaged other officers in useless talks. [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]This is discouraged in banking sector but you may make the most of this tendency in CSS interview. Both the interviews are based on different dynamics. [/FONT][/COLOR]

[QUOTE]
[B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Interviewer:[/FONT][/COLOR][/B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]kon sa newspaper parhte ho aaj ki headline batao[/FONT][/COLOR]

[/QUOTE]

[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Again same tendency. You could name yellow pages, business pages, business recorder, financial times etc to impress them and to match your interests with the position applied. [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]You drew totally a different picture and that lead them assume that you are not fit for MBA discipline or financial sector job. Your political tendency was reconfirmed from the headline which you quoted in the response of next question.[/FONT][/COLOR]

[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Though you were trapped here by the interviewers but you could still impress them and get out of that dilemma had you explained to them the details of Hillary & Qureshi's press conference economic details like: they agreed upon trainings for Pakistani's, .......jobs for female Pakistani's in US, financial aid to boost the economy etc. These were the plus points which were discussed in that conference and you could capitalize these points and provide them a strong counter argument. Had you pointed out these issues you would have left no room for interviewers to believe that you are not fit MBA field. Aaap un ko lajawab kar sakty thy. It is an art to come out of such googlies in any interview, such intervals do come in each interview but it is the efficiency of interviewee to mold them towards his strength and win the ground.[/FONT][/COLOR]

[QUOTE]
[B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Interviewer:[/FONT][/COLOR][/B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Itna interest tha tou phir aapko MBA nahin MA pol science ya LLB karna chaye tha[/FONT][/COLOR]
[B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Me:[/FONT][/COLOR][/B][COLOR=fuchsia][FONT=Verdana]Interests are part of personality which is quite related to nature and job or profession is entirely different thing[/FONT][/COLOR]
[/QUOTE]

[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Their comment on your interests and MBA/MA Political science was the outcome of previous responses which I have explained already. [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Your response regarding no correlation among personality interests and Job/profession was irrational. You would have nullified their comment by narrating economic and financials points of that conference which I have discussed already.[/FONT][/COLOR]

[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Your interests do have relation with your job performance. Contradiction in your interests and your job result in job stress /demotivation and inefficiency. Deviant behavior erupts in such situations where right person is not on the right job. Mismatch of skills and interests is never desired in any Job.[/FONT][/COLOR]

[QUOTE]
[B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Interviewer:[/FONT][/COLOR][/B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana] Do u expect we ll give you job[/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Me: [/FONT][/COLOR][COLOR=fuchsia][FONT=Verdana]I dont expect frm anybody, cz it hurts when somebody doesnt bear it[/FONT][/COLOR]
[/QUOTE]

[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Your response about not excepting anything from anybody suites only in social talks/love maters and friendly environment but it never suites in any job interview. Your response shows either your indifference for the job or your past discouragement/sadness which has taught you to be indifferent and not excepting anything from others.[/FONT][/COLOR]

[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Remember, whenever interviewer asks you about your expectation or your suitability or deserving level he excepts from you a logical and convincing response that you really deserve this position as evident from your education, your skills, your aptitude, your attitude, and experience. Excepts from you that you have required set of skills which are essential for the said position. You are supposed to describe your all relevant plus points which directly meet the requirement of that position.[/FONT][/COLOR]

[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]You could respond in this way: "Yes, I am hopeful to .......or I am optimistic for...................I feel,................I believe,................I see myself suitable..............[/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Start with these words and lead this response by narrating your key plus points which really make you suitable candidate and which provide you an edge over other applicants.[/FONT][/COLOR]

[B][COLOR=fuchsia][FONT=Verdana]Me:[/FONT][/COLOR][/B][COLOR=fuchsia][FONT=Verdana] I trust everybody v easily[/FONT][/COLOR]
[/QUOTE]


[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]You could disclose any other weakness, because in financial matters blind trust is not a good sign.[/FONT][/COLOR]

[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]You could overcome this situation by adding one more thing after their comment that: I do trust but I am not blind. Rationality is also a part of my personality in financial matters, my blind trust is prevalent in social and family relations. Though this response might not impress them but you could compensate the loss which you have borne by this weakness to reasonable level.[/FONT][/COLOR]

[QUOTE]
[B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Interviewer:[/FONT][/COLOR][/B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana] Any one whom u like in MCB as a leader[/FONT][/COLOR]
[B][COLOR=fuchsia][FONT=Verdana]Me:[/FONT][/COLOR][/B][COLOR=fuchsia][FONT=Verdana] I myself[/FONT][/COLOR]
[/QUOTE]

[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Overconfident. Avoid this. [/FONT][/COLOR]

[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Do you remember, I posted few days back some general areas to be covered for the interview. On of these areas was : "Know the organization in which you are going to be inducted". Bird's eye view of MCB Bank from its website could help you in this question. You could pick any personality from the MCB Bank's history for his any plus point as a leader. It could be CEO/President, any group head, or even Chairman etc.[/FONT][/COLOR]

[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Confining ideal personality to yourself without any solid reason is not a sign of confidence rather a sign of over confidence and shortsightedness.[/FONT][/COLOR]

[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Your response could well serve in the section of "my ideal member" cssforum's Autograph's thread but that doesn't work in Job interview.[/FONT][/COLOR]



[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Remember, these may be weak areas in an interview for banking job but same weaknesses may prove strengths in any other sort of job / civil services etc. Always groom yourself in accordance to the position applied. You should look like a situational leader. Try to comprehend the context of question and act accordingly.[/FONT][/COLOR]

[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]You could make this interview more successful by overcoming these grey areas. [/FONT][/COLOR]

[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Purpose of my comments is not to discourage you but to groom you for upcoming interviews because you have long way to go. This is starting of your career journey. Do not get disappointed from my comments because these highlighted weaknesses are not that grave negative points which God forbid can cost you your job.[/FONT][/COLOR]


[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Wish you good luck.[/FONT][/COLOR]

Yes i know i have committed few very general mistakes that would have been resolved very easily or i would have tackled them quite nicely. But what in my mind was that firstly i was mentally not prepared for this interview as i took it very light and had no preparation for it at all. 2ndly all the motivational level they had killed by making us wait for more than 3 and half hours....But i accept this is my mistake;)

actually i kept very straightforward talks though i should have worked a bit on it....again same was the reason....they were dull and tired so was i....so i didn't even take any interest.....but yes as i told them already that i speak truth i kept on following that but it would have been extremely technical if i would have told the about financial pages with a little sane mind...

Yes it luks like little childlike reply wt i said Like me but he had said before that how u luk urself after 20 years in banking and then he asked this question with bit of space, i forrgtote to mention it here....Then on that reply i said i woud like to se me as an ideal leader personality in mcb. I never am overconfident but i m staritfwd n thats somehow i need to cover up...

i ll inshallah work on all weaker areas which you pointed out....Thanx a lot Fayzan bhai!!!

My sole purpose for this interview was to have check on all my weak areas and that's what i have got from u as well and hope that i will keep on getting inputs from u. i m not discouraged at all. i give you full liberty wherever you find rectifying me, do it strait without any reluctance as i consider you my elder brother....You're a guide for me....
