INTERVIEW PREPARATION INITIATIVE: You Have Travelled So Far, Now Take The Last Leap With IASbaba


Dear Friends


The euphoria of Christmas and New Year is over and the time has come when your interview preparation must start with full throttle. Naturally your focus in the next couple of months should be on improving your personality traits and communication. After all, you want yourself to be seen, heard and noticed as a bright and charming candidate. However, we caution you for one thing- stay away from the rhetoric related to Civil Services Personality Test. Hundreds of coaching institutes will be helping and guiding aspirants in hundreds of ways leaving behind a confused lot. They will all use the age old cliche that Civil services Personality Test is not about knowledge but about personality.

While that is true, keep in mind one thing- STYLE WITHOUT SUBSTANCE IS AWFUL. Even if you succeed in portraying yourself as the most confident and charming candidate, if you are superficial, your chances will be bleak. Confidence and demeanor can’t replace knowledge. We at IASbaba believe that equal attention should be paid to expand your knowledge and polish your personality. As a part of this belief, we are happy to announce the initiative called- ‘Mental Workout for Civil Services Interview’ meant to probe your intellectual faculties and induce you to become a thinking individual who responds rather than reacts.

In this initiative, on alternate days, issues relevant for this year’s personality test will be posted. The thread will be operational for 24 hours where all of you can share your responses, ideas and queries under your disqus name. The idea is to explore the issues in a 360 degree manner and at the end come up with concrete viewpoints on a range of national and international issues. By following this exercise, you will be able to internalize a lot of issues and won’t be taken by surprise in the personality test. Moreover, an engaging discussion with your peers will broaden the spectrum of your understanding.

We want you you to become thinking individuals and not just mechanical robots who follow others blindly without realising their own strengths and requirements. This initiative will serve as a mental gym for you. The more you work out here, better will be your ability to think and respond.

Finally you have to accept the fact that success or failure are nothing but superstructures built on the foundation of efforts or the lack of it. We are starting this initiative with the genuine intention to help you. It all depends on you as to how you want to utilize it. We are determined to make you succeed; are you?

All the Best

IASbaba team.
