    Great thread,
    Onnonna nyabagam varum bodhu solren..
    In most Interviews they will look for ur commm and presentation skills.

    1) Prepare an answer for "Tell me abt Yourself"

    2) Always wear a tie atleast (White Shirt and suitable Formal Pants), if not a Blazer/suit. Girls dress-coding ask Sofia/Sweetie

    3) If u dont know an answer, just tell tht out. Dont say "I forgot" or try some mess-up work.

    4) Importantly stay cool and answer with full confidence



    I so for had 12 interviews of which I managed 5 jobs.

    Is this questions at university entrance or from companies which recruit from the university.
    And king_143, I fail to see the point in the verbal test you have given, unless the person concerned is applying for entrance to an English Language degree course.
    Why should a student in, say computer science need to know all this?

    Shidinesh dude, you may be unaware of this but in India, most campus interviews have such question papers similar in pattern to GRE.

    I propose that we start a new section for campus interviews instead of posting all such question papers in the "Help for students in programming languages" section...

    No, aaru, I don't think this is all useless. Someone would definitely benefit from all these. My suggestion is that we start a new section for campus intevrviews, job seekers etc. What do you say?
