The entire selection process was conducted in a professional and efficient manner. The PPT (Pre-Placement Talk) was very informative in providing the students with the requisite information pertaining to the training details, domains of work, salary, locations of placement, etc. The questions in the written test were of a high standard that truly tested the analytical capabilities of the students. The results of the same were declared in a duration and manner which gave the short-listed candidates enough time to recuperate and prepare for the personal interview the following day. The interview itself was an experience. Very basic questions along with real-life implementations and scenarios were posed to the candidates that served as a true test of their technical competence. The atmosphere however was of a relaxed and open nature. The team of L&T (HR personnel, Interview panel members, etc.) was very friendly and they patiently answered all the queries of the students regarding every aspect of L&T.
