Then one interviewer who works in the cybersecurity domain started asking me questions. He asked me 4-5 questions but I don’t know anything about cybersecurity so answered don’t know about this domain, so he said I have no questions for you and handed it over to HR.
- Which is your dream job?
- On which domain you would like to work? (I mentioned Backend technologies)
- Would you like to work in an operational domain?

They didn’t ask me do you have any questions? But I asked them lastly 🙂 That’s it finally the results announced, and I was selected 🙂
Note: Be confident about your answers and calm throughout the process. If you don’t know the answer to any question then tell them honestly.
