Some useful Tips:
- Prepare your Resume well enough (They will focus mainly on Resume).
- Have good and practical knowledge of OOPS and DBMS.
- Be confident enough and if you don’t know some answers tell I don’t know I would like to know.
- My interview was at 12pm but interviewer was not there so in this situation don’t panic mail them and in some telegram channels students provide there HR number contact them. My friend gave the interview for PP role he provided me the contact of HR so I contacted him he said we will reschedule the interview. Then After one hr they contacted me and told my interview is rescheduled at 3pm.
- In interview our whole fear is gone because they are so friendly with us.
