Interview Tips
This (the HR round) is your chance to create a GOOD impression on the Interviewers and to convince them why you are suitable for the Job.........so TAKE IT!!! Just keep a few things in mind:1) Just after entering the Interview room, greet the Interviewers with a WARM smile and a STRONG handshake. Do the same things while leaving.2) Never produce any FALSE data in your Resume3) Be clear and audible while speaking to the Interviewers.4) Always be YOURSELF..and don't even try to project yourself as what you aren't..the Interviewers are experienced enough to find out who is speaking the truth & who is not.5) Always keep a SMILING face while answering :)

Skills Tested

  • (to some extent) TECHNICAL SKILLS
Skill Tips
CONFIDENCE is the most important skill that every Interviewer is looking out for! Your CONFIDENCE is very much dependent upon your COMMUNICATION SKILLS. So, try to improve your spoken english!A person who can Handle Pressure well, is always preferred over someone who succumbs to pressure!And yes...without SOME Technical knowledge it's impossible to get any job :P
