If this is what you are expecting from me then, hey! take a break. This is no more working. And I doubt if it had worked in the past ever.
You should better grab a drink first, coffee maybe. And I’m sure I’m going to change your concepts completely on your returning back. Try to hook with me.
I have heard a lot of people saying: “I prepared a lot about my group interview but could not succeed.” I searched a lot on the internet a day before my interview. I did exactly what was written. blah blah but even after that, they never selected me.
Do you think after reading a bunch of web pages online, containing group interview tips you can win an interview?
Well, may or may not be but reading certainly helps. That same help is intended here (especially for those aiming for study abroad internships) in a more concise way and with slightly an untapped subject.

5. Render the Real Version of YOU
First of all, decide if you want to rob it or if you want to win it? Now if you really want to rob them (The interviewers or Recruiters.) then keep in mind, soon as they realize that they have been robbed. They are going to kick your ass off. Trust me, it happens very often.
And If the latter is true, that is the thing you want to try. Then you must understand that you already have everything you needed. This power phrase is gonna say it all:
“When a person really thinks that he/she really deserves progress, his/her mind automatically makes the ways to achieve it.”
4. Good Manners Are Always Important
All of the above, that I described in the beginning paragraph, are the manners. And manners are, however, always important. But that is not the whole of the game my good people. Just a little part of it.
I often used to tell my readers the Asian folklores, and right now here is another one:
“Courteous is with gain.”
Asian people much believe on this. So, manners are important. You should look how you are grabbing a seat, taking to the other members, where and when you should have to make your input, etc. Your physical appearance, your mental approach, all should be calculated.
Create friendliness, spread your good will gestures, be thankful and don’t forget to follow-up the interviewers on ending.
Once you know, hence you do.

3. Try to Win The Hearts
Speak and speak what you have to speak. Something that captivates the hearts. An intellectual speak, that immediately make people accept your slavery. It is not easy to win the hearts of everyone though but if you master this, then consider yourself having the ticket of everything.
Another Asian folklore is on its way.
“The people’s language is the timpani of the God.”
It means if majority started thinking in a way, there must be a strong message of the God hidden inside. And hence, people tend to think and rethink about it.
If everyone in the room starts giving you a gesture of appreciation, and for some reasons the employer do not. Even after that, he’ll be forced to reconsider you as a strong competent, a worth adding candidate at the end. Don’t you agrees, try yourself.

2. Pay Your Headful Attention
Clearly examine how the things are happening in the room. Listen to it carefully, read them properly, not only the superficial words but the depths of gestures, the tone of the accents, etc.
And then respond accordingly. And believe me, this is not a high-profile quality. I mean you can acquire it easily just by paying your attentions. See what Marie Forleo says:
“Everything is Figureoutable.”
Remember, there is also a narrow difference between taking-in those signals as an information to you and to interpreting them as your illusions. It’s also not big worries. Stay in the game and eventually you’ll also be able to figure it out too.

1. Let Others Believe in You
Believe in yourself and by doing this, you’re letting others believe in you too. This applies to both, the interviewers, and the other fellow beings.
Group interview is an arrangement where you have to prove yourself a competent candidate among others or as compared to others. And it is exactly what I’m saying. Now give them a reason or more to believe in you, show them how much do you have to offer to them, to their firm, to the people they are impacting or affecting.
Just make it realize to them how valuable asset you could be to them.
“Some people can never believe in themselves, until someone believes in them. And some never know how much they can have until they discover how much they can give.”
