    What to do if two interview dates fall on the same day?

    I am a final year engineering student. I have applied for off-campus in two companies. But unfortunately the interview dates fell on the same day. The timing has not yet been declared. What should I do? How should I choose the one among the two to appear for the interview.

    Dear aspirant I have read your statement you applied for two companies and you have got 2 interviews at the same date now you are in dilema what you will do.

    For this purpose you are to think following things.

    1.It is true out of 2 interviews one you are to leave. Now the question which to leave which to accept.

    2.first of all you are to think which company is better in respect of financial stability.

    3.You are to think your qualification supports the company.

    4.If the company does not require any bond then good.

    5.Which company has the lot of vacancies and has the reputation in the market.

    6.Which company gives the standard salary and chances of termination is less.

    7.Which company follows usual company rules in respect of promotion/transfer/leave/increament/PF etc.

    After judging above things you are to take decision which is to attend and which to reject considering

    viability with your status.

    Thank You,

    Dear this is really critical situation has been generated for you and in this case I would like to suggest you that you should visit at the official website of both companies and see the gross and annual production and turn over of every single company then you should choose that one which has more scope means being developed every year and grossing more and expected because all data is available on the official website for every company and you can see the growth of that company annually

    Second thing is that you should try to contact to those candidates who have been selected in those companies from your campus and they will give you the accurate information about those companies and you should ask them about environment and salary packages of the company but do not run behind the money because if you choose money and high package company then they will take entire whatever you get that is why you need to be in peace from starting and you should choose that one where the work pressure is nothing and these information will be provided by the current and ex-employees of that company then you may choose one and get the job

    If the interview date is same then you need to see the accurate time of the interview process and if you see that time is different which is one in morning and one in afternoon or evening then you may attend both interviews

    All the best

    HI,

    IF the two interviews are falling on the same day you can choose the important one first. You should go for the interview for which you feel more comport table in giving the interview.

    Or if the interview venue is at same place you can attend both the interview one after the other.

    Dear, choose the job which fits you the most. First of all analyse both the jobs with respect to various criteria as salary, workplace,it fits to your core trade of b.tech or not...etc. Then choose the one which is the best and opt that interview.

    Hello,

    You need to wait a while. When the timing of the interviews are declard then you should make your strategy.
    If the interviews fall on the same time then there is nothing you can do you have to decide which one to attend
    based on company's reputation. If there is a sufficent time between the interviews then you can always attend
    the two interviews in one day.

    Bye,

    Dear Aspirant,

    Congratulations for being a student of final year in engineering course.It is totally possible to coincide the date for interviews in more than two companies/organisations/govts.

    In such case it is always advisable to appear in one interview which has more prospects.I mean the organisation/company which is better than others,that can be judged by the reputation of the companies,its establishment,its financial position etc.

    You can do one more thing.you can wrtite a letter to any one or more than one companies in case the date coincides in more than two companies,to give you another chance to appear for an interview.You can show some urgent reason for it.The management,if it thinks,may give you another chance.

    Thanks & good luck.

    hii friend its great that you have two lined for interview but first of your problem is that your choice it depends upon the job description and the company is organization that allows your freedom and work culture suited for your growth and development of career that very important for up liftment of your career . its very important that you should have clear understanding of job description in company because its the foundation your future.. for example if the two companies are of good organisation but job descriptrion is different i mean if one company is offering you SAP module and other is java go for SAP because its having huge demand all over the world.. that why i am stressing job description first organisation matters a lot and besides job description matters ..... all the best

    When we apply for the job more than one place then this kind of situation is quite obvious. So if there is a difference in the timings of two interviews then it will good for you as you need to single preparation for two interviews. However if the timing is same, check out whether there is any way by which any of the job interview could be delayed. If it's not possible then you need to go for the interview of that company where working environment is good, have good growth opportunities, nearest to your house, salary, other facilities, holidays, kind of work need to be considered.

    Hi,First of all, leave all your tention away from your mind...You are really lucky that you have got call from two companies...First decide which company you want to go if two of them are selected....Understand the company profile....job profile offered and location of the company where they wants to be posted....Once the dates and timings are reveled...then it might happen, the timings are different and yiu mightattend for both the interviews...Then why to worry...concentrate on preparation for both the interview and do well..All the best..

    hi friend,

    sometimes this happens,if two interviews fall on the same day then go for the one which is more important and which is useful for your career.

    also you said that the timing is not declared if there is a chance you can go for both the interviews

    also prepare for the interview well

    be confident

    attend 30 minutes before the interview

    go to the company website before attending the interview

    know something about the company

    hope the information is helpful

    cheers honey
