IPL 2024 season is here, and so is hiring season! Learn how the IPL's Duckworth-Lewis (D/L) method can help you hit sixes even with unexpected questions.

What's the D/L Method?

In IPL cricket match, when rain disrupts the game, the D/L method adjusts targets based on available overs. Think of it as interview "overs" and unexpected questions as "rain".

Assess the Situation: "Target Score"

Before you answer, understand the interviewer's intent. What information are they seeking? This is your "target score" - the key message to convey.

Adapt Your Approach: "Overs Reduction"

The unexpected question might reduce your "overs" (preparation time). Adapt your answer by focusing on the core message and using relevant examples.

Calculate Your Resources: "Available Batsmen"

What are your strengths and experiences? These are your "batsmen" - the skills and knowledge you can leverage to answer the question effectively.

Maintain Run Rate: Communicate Clearly

Clearly explain your thought process, just like a cricket commentator explaining a captain's decision. Every relevant point is a valuable "run".

Don't Panic: Every Run  Counts

Remember, even partial answers score points. Focus on providing valuable insights and demonstrating your eagerness to learn and adapt.

Stay Positive: End Strong

Conclude the interview positively, thanking the interviewer and reiterating your interest. Leave a lasting impression like a winning captain!
