Interview Experience
Listen g.d will always be a fish market. Just have focus on the key words of the topic.ex, in my topic key words were Mr. Modi and infrastructure. One thing that this company doesn’t give more emphasis on g.d .you just need to speak.

1st search that what are the scopes that any engineering construction company has for mechanical engineers... My answer was that for design of duct in air conditioning system, mechanical electrical plumbing,hvac system (heating,ventilating,and air conditioning) for all the above system any construction company needs a mechanical engineer. Another thing is that mechanical engineers are the back
bone of any core company. Wherever there is a machine, there will be a mechanical engineer.Another thing never tell them that you want higher studies. I answered," I have a rough idea related to technology during my 4 years course. Now I just want 2 explore that are the practical applications of those theoretical knowledge"

Bhupendra SoniFresherSelected
Application
I was interviewed on-campus at IIT Bombay for Management trainee role at Shapoorji Pallonji
Interview Process
Resume Shortlist Group Discussion Technical Interview
Round 1

Resume Shortlist

Interview Experience
My resume was mostly civil core with 2 core internships (one on designing & analysis and other on construction processes) and 4 core projects (mostly related to concrete). I had also mentioned about the designing softwares I had learnt in my internship and as a course.
Interview Tips
Write each point in your resume properly depicting your core skills. Write about the learning outcomes from the projects and internships using easily understandable terms.
Round 2

Group Discussion

Duration
10 Minutes
Group Discussion Topic
Make in India :)
Interview Experience
I simply followed the tips mentioned below.
Interview Tips
There were 7 candidates in my GD group. Just grab opportunities to speak in between. Its great if you start or summarize or both. Try to put forward some different perspective/point if possible, rather than just agreeing or disagreeing with others and stand up to it. Eye contact is one important thing and the other is to address (turn head towards them) most of the people in your group while speaking. When someone speaks, your job is to listen while looking at them.
Round 3

Technical Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: ----
Interview Experience
I had both HR and technical interviews at the same time in parallel. HR and Tech guy asked questions almost alternatively. It was chill, went on for 35 mins. Just to give you an idea, some of the questions were like, Define yourself in one word; Why should we visit your home city; Is Bandra-Worly sealink serving its purpose etc. They asked me about my projects and internships as well.
Interview Tips
Eye contact is very important, it makes you look confident at least, if you aren't.
Don't be in a hurry to speak. Listen patiently and then you may take few seconds to frame your answer and then deliver. Speak only what you know about, as questions may escalate on something new which you have mentioned. And RELAX, as they are pretty chilled out.
