          Interview Tips
          The main aspect of a GD is to either start it, or conclude it. This is from personal experience of successes and failures and they see the confidence in which you present your points. I had started the GD this time and I was also asked a question post GD related to one of the participant’s views. So being alert and aware throughout the GD helps a lot.
          Round 3

          Technical Interview

          Interview Questions
            Interview Experience
            Since I had a lot of extra-acads in my resume, I worked on them, preparing myself to speak fluently about every one of those and possibly connecting them with the roles and responsibilities in the job. The interviewer clearly gave a lot of importance to communication skills, so I made sure I was clear and crisp in my expressions. There were a few technical questions and I was able to answer all of them, as they were all basic chemical engineering stuff and few questions related to my project and internships.
            Interview Tips
            Whenever asked at the end of a PI, “Do you have any questions for us?” make sure you prepare a sturdy question that impresses the panel. I had prepared 2 questions before I entered the interview room and when posed with the questions, we had a discussion for about 10 minutes by which the interviewers were visibly impressed, because I showed interest in their company, and that creates a positive impact. Be confident even when you don’t

              Skill Tips
              Overall my placement experience was a very challenging, yet enriching experience. The placement scenario was a “survival of the fittest” contest, so the key lies in not being disheartened even after multiple failures, and keep trying until you finally hit the mark. There ought to be some company which would prefer you over others, and with that spirit, one should be prepared, for the good, and the worse.
              General Tips
              Yes! Start preparing and focusing on your expressive and communicative skills, as it will not only boost your personality during GD/PI but also help you in the long run. Don’t just cram to become a 9 pointer, but try to be  excellent in all that you do. Make sure you are involved in a variety of activities so that your resume boasts of diversity.
              Motivation for applying
              Chemical being an underrated (although prosperous) department in NIT, so being the placements, I couldn’t have expected a better offer
