Positive Attitude:

  • One of the most important concerns any person would ever have while exposing you to their organization is your attitude.
  • No matter it is placement interview or college interview, a positive attitude goes a long way.
  • Movies may advocate the practice of being too self-assertive or conceited in a brash way to look like s leader, always remember that leaders made by people.
  • SNAP is a management aptitude test and while you are expecting to enroll in the MBA/PGDM program; the interviewers are also thinking whether or not would you be good fit for their organization. Always smile and stay calm.


  • In a personal interview or a personal interaction, the interviewers are seeking to know you as a person.
  • Your personality and all the qualities associated with it make you unique.
  • A person may be hard worker or a smart worker, but the catch is to portray yourself with sheer confidence.
  • This quality of being confident goes a long way.
  • You have to work on your personality traits which help you in more effective communication because communication is the essence of management.


  • Personal Interaction is essential because the interviewers would want to know you as a person. This will help them evaluate your potential.
  • When a candidate seems comfortable with a new person and can interact just as comfortably, it highlights his or her abilities to hold powerful conversations and speaking skills.
  • Comfort does not mean a laid back attitude or informal posture.
  • Comfort during personal interaction has a lot to do with highlighting life events to vouch for your qualities, to smile and use hand gestures, to not be too stiff and so on.


  • For your SNAP interview, interviewers will always appreciate subtle cues and mild remarks instead of being too over the top.
  • For example, If a person says ‘I am adog person’ in the initial part of his introduction, the interviewers will get the idea of the candidate being loyal and dedicated.
  • Gentle and mild hints bring out a lot of traits in your personality.
  • Always be subtle with what you do because it is not only the safest way to put yourself across but also the most appreciated way.

Know yourself:

  • When you are preparing for your interview, you can ask somebody who may be a friend or a colleague to highlight the most visible traits in your personality.
  • Check how many of these qualities you are actually aware of .
  • Do try to ensure that your most powerful qualities are known to you well.
  • Your powerful qualities can be debating or social work, you just have to find the traits that overpower you as person and not the qualities that overpower others.
  • These qualities or traits are what you should try to put across during the interview instead of being something you are not.


  • Always know why you are opting for PGDM or MBA instead of doing a job or starting a business.
  • You must have clarity with respect to the reasons why you are going for a post graduate degree, not just for the sake of the interview but also to have a sense of purpose.
  • You must be clear if the investment of time, effort and money is at least proportionate to the returns you are expecting.
  • Having good clarity on this topic will help you get through the SNAP interview.


  • In order to do so, you have to ensure that your answers do not look very staged or rehearsed.
  • In case your answers seem like they are too scripted, the interviewer gets the idea of the answers being unauthentic and dishonest.
  • Each answer should be powerful and must depict a part of your personality.
  • You must ensure that you are honest about your experiences and are not weaving a web of lies for yourself as it will only end up wasting your efforts.
