          General Tips
          Do’s :

          1. Start preparing with the start of the summers.

          2. Concentrate on your own preparation and not on what others are doing.

          3. Keep the preparation time of HR to maximum 20 hours because HR accounts for just 20% weightage in your selection procedure.

          4. Have patience.

          5. Prepare every point written in the resume such that you are able to speak for at least 3 min on the subject. You might gain bonus points if you are aware of some latest developments or strategic changes in the field.



          Don’ts :

          1. Never bog down when you are either not shortlisted in the company who have been aiming for or when even after practice you are not getting the correct way.

          2. Do not form very large groups for the preparation. Try making the preparation time that you spend with the group as efficient as possible with the least of bulla sessions.
