Group discussion is one of the most important criteria in an interviewing process. In order to understand why group discussion plays such a huge role in the selection process, it is essential for you to understand it from the perspective of an interviewer and also, how it is useful for you as a candidate, so as to enable you to improve your skills in a GD round.
A GD round is ideally conducted in order to understand a candidates interpersonal skills. Since group discussions in an interview involve discussing topics with individuals you have never interacted with before, how well you’re able to put across your point and are able to lead a discussion is judged upon, based on which how you can work in a team or lead them can be easily assessed. It also portrays to the interviewer a side of your attitude which you might probably display in your workplace.
Since GD is given importance in an interview, it is best if you involve yourself in GD’s during your education as this not only improves your listening skills, but also increases your confidence in speaking and helps you to mold your attitude according to each group. Further, it also improves your ability to think critically and helps in problem solving.
