EBI + FIT: This was also conducted on zoom. It was basically a Technical and HR round. First I introduced myself, discussed my projects. Thereafter the ZS leader asked me questions about my project. He also asked some project management questions, followed by a guesstimate (Asked the surface area of my city). Some common HR questions (Why ZS ? Why this role ? How will you manage the long hours at ZS?). The round ended with me asking him questions about his experience and his learning curve.
