FINAL VERDICT: SELECTED

TIPS:

• Prepare and know your resume, you should be able to verbally back up your Resume.
• You should attend the Company’s Pre Placement Talk(PPT), Answers to many HR questions are told in PPT.
• If you don’t know something it’s better to admit it, Don’t beat around the bush. If you get stuck somewhere it is always okay to ask for help, they don’t expect you to be an expert and know everything.
• A lot of cross-questioning will be done, have a clear thought about what you are going to say.
• They want to know your approach and see if you are clear with the concepts, so it is better to provide examples or some real-life scenarios wherever you can.
