I Know the tension we have before attending an interview. This is the experience of my first interview .I am very Happy to share this with you.
First of all, I would like to tell you that confidence is the only key.
Top 5 persons have NO written test.so,I have direct way to interviews. Also, for the first 25 members Both technical and MR were conducted at a time. So, we have TR+MR and HR .
I waited since a long time from 5 pm to 10 pm and for each person he is taking minimum 50 min. so finally my turn came at around 10 pm.
Before going into the room I feel tensed. But once I entered they are really experienced in making you feel comfortable. There is No single moment in my interview where I felt tensed.
I went into the room and I spotted two interviewers and greeted them.
