Interview & Essay

Venue: Bangalore
Date: 3rd march, 2011

Essay :
Topic:Traditions are means to create inequality in society
Number of Ppl present: 9 students 2 professors
Time: 10 mins essay 12 mins GD
Brief Snapshot of the attempt:Essay was ok I believe. GD- I chipped in about 3-4 times with different points, group started discussing on those lines. In my view, speak less but to the point, just don't get carried away by other people.
Rate your preparation(0-5): 2

PI:

Questions:

P1 began by asking me to describe myself. P2 meanwhile asked me to handover my certificates file.
Me: The common stuff, job..hobbies..family..
P1: Tell me your role and job responsibility
Me:Told in detail about what I do and how important my work is.
P1: Favourite subject in engineering.
Me: S/w engineering(as it is the only thing I know something about)
P1: What is Agile Methodology?
Me: Explained.
P1: From where you are basically?
Me: MP(P1 said your accent has changed to South Indian and started laughing).

Then P2 takes over.
P2: What do you think about tradition? How is it different from Religion?
Me: (Unexpected question may be from essay i wrote) told few things and differentiated.
P2: Your 2 weaknesses?
Me: I am Shy(P1 said we never felt that during the GD as you were speaking well, I told may be I am working frm last 6 years so I improved but still it's a weakness for me), I let the opportunities go easily sometimes(P2 asked how, i gave an example frm the GD whr I let my chances to apeak go to othr peopele coz I ddnt wnt to create the fish market)
P2: ok do you have any questions? we are giving you a chance to work one of your weaknesses(Big Smile).
Me: I don't have any question but I am sure I will get many chances to imrpove my weaknesses once I am in the insti.
P1 and P2 both: Definitely, all the best for your other interviews.
Me: Thanks very much for your time.

Rate your preparation(0-5): 2
Rate your performance(0-5): 3.5

Overall I felt that I had ok type interview as there were some questions that I should've really answered better. But I believe the body language and the way of answering are more looked for than actual answer
VERDICT: Converted
