Round 3

Technical Interview

Interview Experience
It was a combined interview(Tech+ HR). there were 3 people in the interview jury. All the questions were from my summer internship in the starting. They  asked very basic questions regarding the internship.

And in the last they asked HR questions, basic HR questions. Since my interview was held at very last so they skipped 'tell us about yourself' part. 

Basically i can say it was a chill n cool interview although it was my first interview
Interview Tips
As i said they asked questions from the summer training so just prepare basic questions from your summer training.

Don't take pressure of interview, just assume you are sitting in a class viva. Be confident and don't thing whether  you will be selected or not.

    General Tips
    It was definitely CHALLENGING because it was my first CORE company out of 11 companies (in which I gave interview) and till that time (21st November) I had forgotten electrical concepts and knew only coding and analytics. Don't get disappointed by your failures during placement days, Just give your best every time you face the procedure. I got through in the 18th company and am very happy to get a CORE job(as I always wanted).
