In fact, the visa interview is also series of questions and answers. If you know what embassadors will ask, you’ll easily pass the interview and obtain the desired visa.

What will the embassadors ask you for the student visa?

In any situations, the embassadors always require you meet the following requirements:

First, you go abroad for studying or other purposes.

Second, you have enough financial capacity (from yourself, family or scholarships).

Third, you’ll come back your country after study.

How to meet these requirements:

  • Do you go abroad for studying or other purposes?

For each visa purposes, you’ll be interviewed by different questions. If your purpose is to study in U.S, you’ll be asked the following questions to validate your study visa purpose:

What school will you attend/study?

What is the address of this school?

Why do you choose to study at this school?

Which degree will you get?

Why do you choose to study in U.S? (Why don’t you study in your country?)

What is your purpose of study in U.S?

What is your study plan in U.S?

How long does your course take? (Commencing date? Finishing date?)

Why should students consider community college?

Are you ready for working on campus as an international student?

What do you know about life on campus?

Do you know any myth about U.S?

These are frequent questions to check if your purpose is to study abroad. If you can answer these questions, it means you have achieved 1 / 3 chance to succeed in the interview.

  • Do you have enough financial capacity?

Your financial capacity will be expressed through the cash account in the bank.

How much does it require in the bank account?

Example: You want to learn in a community school in U.S.

Your annual tuition fee. Example: 10000 USD / year

                 +

Living expense. Example: 24000 USD / year

Total = 34000 USD / year

The cash you have in your bank account should be at least 1.3 times the requirement number if you don’t have full scholarships. In this example, you should have:

1.3 x 34,000 = 44,200 USD / year

If you also have other real estate properties, you should declare them in the declarations submitted to the U.S Embassy to prove your financial capacity. Otherwise, your real estate can prove that you’ll return your country after you finish your study abroad because if you don’t return, your real estate has no owner.

The questions are relevant to this issue:

How much tuition fee do you have to pay for the course?

How about living expense (in U.S)?

Where is your money from? (Who is your financial sponsor?)

What are your parents’s jobs?

Where will you be staying in U.S?

  • Will you come back your country after study?

Most countries don’t want you to stay in their countries after you finish studying because they think you will be a burden to their countries. Respond wisely if you want to pass the interview.

If you take the interview to study in U.S and you can’t prove you’ll come back your country, I’m sure you’ll get failure. However, some countries want to keep students in their countries, if you want to pass the interview, you must have necessary information for this issue.

The questions are relevant to this issue:

Do you have any relatives or friends in the U.S?

What will you do after you complete your study in the U.S?

Why do you choose (not) to come back your country?

What will you do after you come back your country/after you stay in the U.S?

Otherwise, there are some ordinary questions in the interview:

What is your name?

How old are you?

Where are you living now?

What are you doing now?

Do you have any pastime or hobbies?

Have you ever been abroad before?

Which country did you visit? What for?

If you want to pass the interview for U.S visa, you must know how to give suitable answers to these questions. If not, no one can help you!

If you want to pass the interview for U.S visa, complete 2 following steps:

Step 1: Find suitable answers for these questions

Step 2: Find a friend (online or offline) to practice asking questions and giving answers in English at least 7 times so that you can speak English naturally and fluently. Then, go to the embassy for visa.

    Actually, a job interview is a series of questions and answers. If you know what interviewers ask, you’ll easily pass the interview and obtain the desired job.

    What do interviewers ask candidates?

    In any situation, the interviewers always ask the candidates to meet the following requirements:

    Do the candidates have the hard skills (technical skills and work experience) to meet work requirements?

    Do the candidates have the soft skills (communication, teamwork skills …) to work efficiently after being admitted to the company?

    Are the candidates interested in the job and the company that they’ll work for in the future?

    The interviewers need three requirements above, do the candidates have the capability to meet these requirements?

    The candidates (you) will be one of two following situations:

    Used to work for a company, it means you have experience and apply for interview.

    Never work for any company and apply for interview.

    To make a successful interview, the candidate must meet the requirements of the interviewer. It means that you must know which capability you are good at and estimate which requirement the interview needs.

    The basic reasons leading to failure in the interview:

    Going to an interview, you suppose that you don’t have any outstanding capability and you’re lack of experience. It’s your biggest mistake, you suppose about your capability and is it true in fact? Do you know which capability you have or which experience you are lack of? Most of us have never self-estimated our capability and experience or don’t know how to estimate them. That’s the reason you’re not self-confident at the interview and make it fail.

    You don’t know anything about your job and company in the future. If it happens, you’re hard to pass the interview. Instead, search for information about your future job and company to show the interviewer how much you really care for them, if you do that, you’ll have more chance to pass the interview. I’ll show you how to do that to get your desired job.

     

    The requirements of the interviewer for the candidate (you):

    • Candidates must be good at hard skills (technical skills and work experience) to meet the requirements of the job.

    Hard skills include the skills or specific knowledge you learned at college or by yourself and professional experience you had from your previous work. Professional experience only appears on people who used to work in a company, so if you haven’t gone to work yet, do not rely on this advantage to interview for a job.

    Your hard skills have been checked already if you’re invited to the interview through your curriculum vitae (CV). It means if you got a date for the interview, your hard skills are accepted for the job, if not, no invitation comes to you for interview.

    If you got a date for the interview, your hard skills are only accounted for less than 15% of success and the interviewer just wants to ensure you have these skills. If you’re a student or you’ve just graduated, you shouldn’t spend much time on answering questions that test your hard skills.

    If you’re a student or you’ve just graduated and never gone to work, focusing on hard skills is almost useless. Instead, focus on how to show your soft skills and how much you really care about your future company to demonstrate that you can work effectively with the skills you have.

    Finally, your hard skills is only tested if you apply for senior positions such as director or higher. If you don’t have hard skills and you try to lie, you can’t pass the interviewer’s professional eyes. So, be honest about your hard skills.

    • Does candidate have the soft skills (communication, teamwork skills …) to work efficiently after being admitted to the company?

    Soft skills are complementary skills to help hard skills work faster and more effectively. For example, teamwork skill will help you get the skills and experience from other people to complete your task faster and more efficiently.

    In a real interview, the soft skills are the determining factor in your success. If the interviewer call you for an interview, it means he/she wants to check if your soft skills are good enough to work and coordinate at work with others.

    In a real interview, the soft skills are accounted for 75% of a successful interview. In a real interview, you can hardly express your hard skills to interviewer, but the soft skills are different, they’re commpletely expressed in the interview by your words, expression, body language or by the way you handle a difficult situation…

    If you want to succeed in the interview and you almost have no experience, showing all strengths in your soft skills will be the best choice.

    • Are candidates interested in the job and company they work in the future?

    If you know some necessary information about your work and company in the future, your chances of success will be higher. It accounts for 10% of a successful interview. But, which information should you concentrate on?

    For future company, you can visit the company’s web site or  www.google.com  to search for the following information:

    Fields that company works in

    Work that candidate will take

    Main products and main markets that company concentrates on

    Find out a weakness or a strength in company’s business based on its financial statement and analysis data of industry that company join in (if you can). You don’t need to know about this kind of information if you don’t apply for senior positions such as managers, sales director, …

    For future work, you can visit the company’s web site or www.google.com  to search for the requirements to candidate to  have an appropriate strategy.

    Searching information about your future work and company is not the most important step, so you shouldn’t focus much time and effort on it. Instead, let’s focus much time and effort on the most highest success factor (soft skills) before you do anything else.

     

    Main Questions for Job’s interview:

    Can you introduce something about yourself?

    What is your strength?

    How about your weakness?

    What is your long term goal?

    What kind of salary would you like?
