    Can we ask for an interview in Hindi in MNCs?

    My friend is not so good in spoken English but he has scored top marks in his exams and has got a interview from a top MNC but wants to give the interview in Hindi. Is it possible for him to ask for a interview in Hindi and whom should he speak/write to?

    Hi friends,

    I think many students are not speak good English.
    I think Many companies mostly interviews ask in English.
    My opinion some MNCs company ask the interview in Hindi Language also.
    Your friend not speak in English in a interview i think your friend not qualified the interview.
    But most of the employees speak in English.
    So my suggestion your friend learn the good spoken English.

    Present Generation most of the people speak in English. So please learn the good Communication skills and good in spoken English.

    Thanks!!!

    GOOD LUCK.................

    Dear Aspirant,

    It is not very hard & difficult to learn spoken English.Try to learn it as early as possible.You can do it in very short time.It may take two to three months.But I don't think you have so much time to face the forth coming interview.

    you are supposed to give reply in the language of the interviewers.I mean if they ask you in Hindi,you can reply in Hindi.Like wise,if you are asked in English,You should reply in English only,then only you will have good impression,because knowing English is necessary in the professional life & particularly in MNC where the employees may have to work in other country also where one will require to speak in English only.
    So you can go through Rapidex English book to learn English fastly.

    It is nothing wrong to ask to reply in Hindi.It also depends upon the places where you have to appear for an interview.If it is in north India,it may be good for you.

    So try your level best & good luck.

    Ashok..

    Re: Can we ask for an interview in Hindi in MNCs?

    Dear we are really sorry to say that your friend can not ask for interview process in Hindi language because he has got the interview call letter from a Multinational Company and for your kind information that MNCs never conduct their interview process for any recruitment in hindi language because the companies are multinational and there are so many contacts of those companies from various english speaking countries and suppose if you got selected to complete any project out of India then how would you deal in foreign that is why the companies hire only those candidates who have expertise and fluency in english so that you should tell to your friend and suggest him that he should not feel anything wrong about the knowledge of english and go to any coaching institute to learn the interview skills and personality development and i am sure that if he has only 10-15 days for interview process then the coaching institute would teach him everything and prepare him for interview process in english and tell him that be confident and go for interview process

    All the best

    Re: Can we ask for an interview in Hindi in MNCs?

    Hi aspirant

    Your friend can definitely ask for an interview in Hindi but as you that now-a-days English is the preferred language for all the interviews and especially those that are conducted by the MNC's . Also by clearing just the written exam your friend doesn't stand anywhere. He has to clear the interview and impress the interviewer with your communication skills. Most of the companies expect their candiates to be well versed with English otherwise your chances of getting through the interview will definitely decrease.

    Of course I am not discouraging your friend here. He has certainly performed excellently in the written exam and I congratulate him for that. but now his next step is the interview. He can ofcourse ask for the language change but i think firstly he should try to improve upon his english if he has the time. He should talk to everyone in English and join some reputed coaching centre. Also tell him to read good english books to improve upon his english.

    But if he has no time then he should write a letter to the Manager of that company and should request him to change his language to Hindi for the interview.I hope the manager will comply with his wishes. Also it would be better if he goes in person and speak to the manager himself. I hope you understand my point. Best of luck for his interview. Thanks

    Re: Can we ask for an interview in Hindi in MNCs?

    Hello ,
    It is not advisable for your freind to take the interview in Hindi .

    All these MNC's deal with top level executives and thus their basic requirement from their employee is that
    they are able to converse in english .


    It is okay if your freind is not fluent and flamboyant with his english language .
    The fact that he got selected for the interview means he has the potential in him and slowly he should
    build his spoken english as it will always help him in the long run .
    I would suggest you to talk to your freind and calm him down .
    Go for the interview and try to convey them that the command over the lang is not upto the mark but
    ensure that he will work on it (or still working on it) to improve and will show results .


    It will bring confidence in him and have a good impact .

    He cannot run away from his weaknesses as where he will go , english will the basic and he will
    always loose out because of it .
    I hope you convey the message to your freind .
    Thank you !

    Hi friend,
    You should write to the HR head and request him to arrange for an interview in Hindi for you . If the company agrees it is good , otherwise I think you should take out ome time and learn English speaking because it is important these days to converse well in English and it only compliments your academic record.
    As a matter of fact, MNC's usually conduct interviews in English only.

    So I think you should take some clases in english and these days with the help of technology and so much information available, it is not difficult to learn anything.
    Being a toppper, I suppose, you must be a very determined and hard working person, so you must take up this task with a bang as well because nothing is impossible and you can certainly improve your poken english in a very short time o go ahead with it and crack the interview in English only.
    Good Luck:-)

    Dear friend,You can ask to the conductor of Interview or HR manager regarding your question and expressing him clearly that sir I have the all qualities except spoken English I am a fresher I am not habituted in speaking English later I will be able to tackle my official works.I am confident to enhance my speaking power immediately please take my Interview in HINDI.

    But as far as MNC is concerned their main eligibility (a candidate should have communication skill).As you have the good knowledge in subjects you may get due favour of the interview board.So you can request to conduct your inter view in national language Hindi.

    Thank You,

    Dear Friend,
    The trends is changing. Even you have the knowledge but you can't perform well in an MNC if you can't speak well in english. You shoud be well in communication to stand in MNC. Now you have to face an interview, try one thing memorised your introduction details about your educational, family, hobby etc. and practice it with your friend atleat 41 time. Surely your confident will increase. Meanwhile join english speaking course also. '' Impossible is nothing""

    Hi friend,

    no you should not ask to interview in any regional language.

    Although hindi is a national language you can not do that.

    And more over in the mnc companies you will be interviewed in the english

    english being a worldwide language

    also you should be comfortable in the language

    some interviewers understand your problem and some will even not think about it and they don't take care of that even.

    So well prepare well for the interview

    Dear Friend,

    MNC's prefer people who are more comfortable in English and such people are preffered over people who do not know English. The reason behind so is -- MNC have most of their clients in US , UK etc.

    So i will suggest to help your friend to improve his English and be confident on it instead of going oftrack.

    Thanks

    Normally for such companies the recruiter prefers persons that can speak english well.
    It won't be easy for him to crack the interview if he is not good in english.
    Further if you are an average speaker than you can have a chance ,so try to give your interview in english as it depends on the
    necessity for the command over language for the particular job they are recruiting.
    Normally hindi is only allowed when you are given an option in your interview call letter for it.

    Re: Can we ask for an interview in Hindi in MNCs?

    Hi friend,

    Here while attending the interview your friend can ask the HR to take the interview in Hindi, but it would be a weakness or a dis-advantage of your friend for not able to communicate in English.

    Most of the Govt Organizations would give you a preference to attend the interview in your preferred language, but not the private organizations.

    So it would be good if your friend would take the interview in English.

    While attending the interview he can mention that he is a bit weak in English and would definitely cope up as soon as possible.

    As in HR round he needs to discuss about the technical topics and some personal introduction itself, so it would not be that difficult to answer in english is what i think.

    Dar ke Aage jeet hai mere dost.

    Face it with confidence.


    Hope i have helped you in getting relevant information.

    All the best

    Thanking you...

    Re: Can we ask for an interview in Hindi in MNCs?

    Dear..

    First of all let me tell you that English Interview is a must in every MNC as if they take interview in Hindi then for time being its fine but once they appoint your friend then he will have to work with all type of clients and that time it would be a problem for the company because your friend will not be able to speak in English so its better you tell your friend that he should learn at least that much English which can be asked there.

    Tips :-

    Tell him to learn how to introduce himself properly
    Tell him to learn the other common questions that are asked in general to everybody
    Tell him to be confident and where he feel like he is not able to answer due to English then answer in Hindi
    Tell him to show some positiveness and he must tell to the HR that i will improve my communication as soon as possible.

    You can not write to the HR saying that take my interview in Hindi

    Hope it will help

    Cheers...!!!

    The mnc means multi national company which is established in many countries around world,where english is main language and also english is the only language which is required for dealing with clients of the company around world.... I think comunication skills are very much required for getting jobs in mnc's.. There is noo provision in getting interview done in mnc... But don't worry go for good spoken english class and she can definitely learn english in 4-5 weeks i am sure when her academics are good,as she scored top marks she can learn english in days... All the best

    Re: Can we ask for an interview in Hindi in MNCs?

    Dear Friend,

    Sorry no MNCs in the world will choose your option since working in an MNC company requires high proficiency in spoken English as they have to deal with peoples of many different nations for them English is the common language.

    So tell your friend to learn,as fast as possible, to speak English fluently.

    It is indeed possible if you put your mind on it.

    There are courses to support you giving advertisements like within 30 days you may speak English fluently.

    Also there are a lot of books that will help you to speak English within a specified time limit like Rapid English Course.

    Please try any of these options.

    Prepare well ahead before the Interview.

    Never spoil an opportunity.

    Wish you all the best.

    Re: Can we ask for an interview in Hindi in MNCs?

    Hello Friend,
    sorry to say you but they wont entertain interview in any other language than english.english is an international language and in MNCs you may have to deal with clients from different countries for that english is must .if you think your friend is weak in english then ask him to join an spoken english class such that he will get some confidence.frankly telling in interview you need to answer all in english but sometimes if you stuck up somewhere and font get the proper word then you can use hindi but you should come back to english immediately.
    there are certain Interviews where you can use hindi or local language like in civil service exam its allowed to give interview in local languages but not every where you will get this opportunity.so start working to improve your english knowledge.

    To improve your English you need to start to speak in English from today onwards .language is a vast thing to get control over it so you gradually get command on English but first of all you need to remove all your hesitation to speak in English in daily conversation. apart from that to learn the basic you should use the book Wren &Martin and read daily English news paper you will get your vocabs improved. apart from this watch English movies and news from which you will get many sentences we usually use in day to day life. while talking frame small sentences which are good to understand and error free at the same time.

    Thank You.

    Hello,


    I doubt whether this is possible or not .Communication in English is very essential now a days.If your friend fails in communicating in English despite of his educational achievements,it will be treated as a discredit.If heasks for a intrview in Hindi specially for his inconvinience,it dont think it will be accepte or appreciated.Secondlu,educational excellence does not mean that h is fit for MNC.Study and practical field work are comp,etely different.Asking for a Hindi interview may lessen his chance tyo get the job.

    Re: Can we ask for an interview in Hindi in MNCs?

    Generally MNCs are not taking interview in Hindi because MNCs has to deal with people of different countries and the international language of communication is English only........
    So, it will not make your good impression if you ask them to take interview in Hindi, that is why its better for you practice English well and try to give the interview in English......

    Hello,

    No, your friend needs to improve his spoken english skills. All MNcs and other companies generally take
    interviw in english. In India it's a standard proceedure. So your freind can do some crash course on
    conversational english either from British Council or any other reputed institutes.

    Bye,

    Dear friend,
    English is an international language that's why every where it is being mandatory to write and speak in english. From your words it is very similar that your friend understands and can write English easily and efficiently otherwise he/she could not score much. About MNCs in India the inteview in English may be considered.But, If you want to represent yourself as a face in the international market You must learn how to speak in English and it is very simple to learn Spoken English.
    Yes I hope the time will come so that when Hindi becomes an international language like other languages such that chinese or japanese and so so then your proposal will accepted very cooly.
    Thank you.

    Re: Can we ask for an interview in Hindi in MNCs?

    hello,
    dear friend , i think most of students face the same problem he is suffering from. this situation has multiple solutions to crack the interview.
    first he should try to improve his communication skills.
    if he is not able to improve these skills then he should try to build up confidence in it , so that what so ever he answers interviewer may lead to positive results.
    try to read english newspapers in front of mirror, try to listen to english news. this will improve you.
    but talking in hindi etc. in interview will definitely give negative impact.
    best of luck

    Hello

    No, you cannot talk in hindi neither in GD nor in PI

    you have to speak in english

    If you will speak in any language other than english then you will be disqualified immediately

    If you are weak in speaking english then join a good institution where they will make your communication skill strong.

    They will improve your personality

    They will take several sessions on how to speak english fluently and this will help you build confidence to speak and communicate in English


    This will help you get through the interviews

    Thank you

    Yes you can ask the interviewer to ask in the hindi but it will not make good impression of you........
    English is much more important for the jobs in MNCs because in MNCs you may have to deal with clients from different countries for that english is must......
    So, if you are not good at English then you will fill a lots of problem while working..
    Thats why the Interview is being done the english language only...
    So, If you want really perform well at the interview then start working on the english...
    Learning english is not much more difficult you can command over it by practice........
    Start practicing english and give the interview in english only...

    It's not very hard & tricky to understand been vocal English.Try to understand the idea as early as possible.You can perform the idea throughout really quick time.It usually takes two to three months.But My spouse and i don't even think you could have thus long to deal with the on arriving interview.

    you should supply respond throughout the word what in the interviewers.I suggest should they inquire you throughout Hindi,you possibly can respond throughout Hindi.Like smart,in case you are inquired throughout The english language,You'll want to respond throughout The english language simply,subsequently simply you will have beneficial effect,due to the fact being aware of The english language is needed in the professional existence & especially in MNC the place that the personnel may have to operate in various other country in addition wherever you will involve to speak throughout The english language only.
    So you can proceed through Rapidex The english language publication to understand The english language fastly.

    The idea is definitely not drastically wrong need to to reply throughout Hindi.It in addition depends upon the sites wherever you have to seem for an interview.If the idea is upper Indian,it may be great for you.
    many of us are truly sorry to say your pal cannot look for appointment practice throughout Hindi vocabulary as he seems to have interviews get in touch with page from the Multinational Organization in addition to for ones kind information of which MNCs in no way carry out its appointment practice for just about any recruitment throughout hindi vocabulary due to the fact the businesses tend to be multinational in addition to there are numerous friends of the people firms coming from numerous english chatting countries in addition to assume in the event you got selected to complete any project outside of Indian subsequently you can view provide foreign that is why the businesses hire the individuals that have expertise in addition to fluency throughout english thus that you can notify for your pal in addition to advise your pet which he should never sense anything at all drastically wrong regarding the expertise in english in addition to visit to the mentoring institute to understand interviews abilities in addition to identity growth using this program . convinced if this individual merely has 10-15 days to get appointment practice then an mentoring institute might educate your pet anything in addition to put together your pet to get appointment practice throughout english in addition to make sure he understands of which have confidence in addition to opt for appointment practice
    Furthermore by simply clarifying exactly the prepared quiz ones pal isn't going to remain anywhere. He needs to remove the appointment in addition to wow the job interviewer with all your communication skills. The vast majority of firms expect its candiates to become trained having The english language in any other case your chances of all through interviews certainly will decrease.

    Of course I am not saying discouraging ones pal here. They have definitely carried out excellently in the prepared quiz in addition to My spouse and i compliment your pet to get that. however right now her following step is definitely the interview. He can ofcourse look for the word what transform on the other hand imagine first this individual needs to further improve upon her english if perhaps bigger the time. He should talk with everyone throughout The english language in addition to join quite a few most respected mentoring centre. Furthermore make sure he understands to learn beneficial english guides to further improve upon her english.

    But if bigger insufficient time establishing should generate instructions to the Administrator of this firm and ought to obtain your pet to modify her vocabulary in order to Hindi with the interview.I wish the boss may conform to her wishes. Furthermore it could be far better if perhaps this individual will go directly in addition to talk to the boss himself. I think you'll fully grasp my own point. Have fun to get her interview.
    sorry to say you however they probably won't entertain appointment in a different various other vocabulary compared to english.english is surely an foreign vocabulary plus MNCs you should handle buyers coming from several countries for the english is actually must .if you think that ones pal is actually vulnerable throughout english subsequently ask him to become listed on a strong been vocal english category such that this individual will get quite a few confidence.frankly informing throughout appointment you need to solution most throughout english nevertheless sometimes in the event you jammed up anywhere you want in addition to well have the right concept subsequently you can utilize hindi but the truth is should revisit english immediately.
    therefore Selection interviews where one can make use of hindi or perhaps regional vocabulary as with municipal program quiz its made possible to supply appointment throughout regional dialects nevertheless not all wherever you will definitely get the following opportunity.so begin their day in order to help your english knowledge.

    In corporate world, knowledge of english language is considered to be important. However you can give your interview in the language of hindi, but the selection in that case will be doubtful and generally it will be rejection. In the multi national company, communication are generally done in english language mainly with foreign clients/partner etc, so company consider that employee who is good in english. These days various english speaking institute have been opened through which learning english with frequent speaking of it has become easy.

    hi, friend..

    >> yes,as professional it is not possible that all knows English.

    >> You can ask for Hindi because Hindi is a national language and so they will give you permission.

    >> Professional is known by its talent not by its English.

    >> so you can give it in hindi on English.

    >> i hope this will help you .
