    Re: Question of the Day : Job Interview - Taking Notes

    Thanks for every one for the answers. Let me conclude the question in my view. I would go for option B. While some job interview experts argue both for and against this, the general rule of thumb is that taking notes during the interview isn't a very good idea. One reason for this is because it is better to use the interview as a time for selling yourself, not wasting time taking notes. At the same time, it isn't a bad idea to bring a miniature notepad with you. Once the interview is over, it is "then" a good idea to go over any key points that you got from the interview.

    Best,
    Chandra

    My option is B i.e. false.I think recruiters will not allow the notes during the interview. But after completing the interview immediately you can write the key points of your interview on a paper or notes.

    Certainly , we can make notes but only in such a way that the recruiters think that it is helping us in thinking better about the questions. We can't simply write down there every note.

    Notes should only be made in situations where you need to give examples or explain in a better way whatever you are asked in the interview room. In such cases , not only interviewer is impressed but also it helps in concentrating on the points related to the topic.

    Option B, false. This is because taking notes will consume time and it's much more convenient to keep all the necessary information in brain rather than in a piece of paper. If there's any confusion, just feel free to ask the recruiters.
