TISSNET 2022: Quick Tips to Ace TISS PI 2022

The most important factors that will aid a candidate to ACE the TISS PI are interpersonal skills, thinking process, future goals, communication process, and positive attitude. 

  • Excellent Communication Skills: Effective communication plays a major role in the final placements. Hence, candidates possessing excellent communication skills are more likely to be selected by the B-Schools in the PI round. To assess communication skills, the interviewers may ask several open-ended questions either about the academic background of the candidate or his job profile, if he is employed. The candidate must be able to prove his credibility by co-relating his work or course content with the programme that he aspires to pursue. Candidates must be confident enough to answer questions like “Tell me about yourself” or “Tell me why you want to pursue this course from this college?”
  • Be genuine and honest: Since the interviewers are seasoned professionals, the candidates are advised to be genuine. Answer as honestly as you can. Pragmatism and honesty are highly valued at TISS. Interviewers do not have unbelievable expectations from candidates. They are just on the lookout for candidates who are genuinely interested in learning the course. 
  • Develop Positive Attitude: Since the interviewers delve deeply into the candidate's personality and attitude in order to evaluate his level of confidence, it is necessary for the candidate to be enthusiastic about the course and answer their questions with optimism and a positive attitude. If the candidate is asked, “How does this course fit into your career plan?”, he must respond in a way that reflects his frame of mind of considering the course as a foundation for a successful career. 
  • General Awareness: Since TISSNET prioritizes the importance of General Awareness among the candidates, it is necessary for every aspirant to have detailed knowledge regarding the important events in India’s social, cultural, political, and economic history. It is extremely important for the candidates to keep a very informative and well-balanced view regarding any argumentative topic or issue in the country. Thus, students are advised to read newspapers and important current affairs magazines on a regular basis. 
  • Know basic details about the course: Candidates should be familiar with the structure and syllabus of the program for which they have applied. Questions might be asked from the course content. Hence, it is crucial that if a candidate has opted for HRM and LR course, he must have a sincere enthusiasm for Human Resource Management and Labour Laws and you are ambitious to learn about its real-world application. Your response must be in conformity with the job and the company. Candidates may visit the TISS website to gather information about the basic outline of the course. For obtaining more detailed information on the course, they must refer to Google, Research papers, Wiki, magazines, etc.
