Round 4: This was the final Techno-HR round.
The interviewers asked me both technical questions, from my resume and my favorite subject(that is chosen by me). General HR questions like difference between leader and boss, are you a team player, what challenges did you face while working in a team, how to handle situations where views conflict in a team, etc. He also asked me to convince him that I don’t want to go for higher studies or want to do a startup or family business.
The key is to stay confident and be honest at every answer and avoid guessing any technical answers. Be frank and confident and let them know you have no idea about that right now but you can learn it eventually. HR rounds demand honesty and confidence.
All the best 🙂
