So that was my total interview experience.I am still forgetting 2 questions which were from current news. It was a rapidfire interview. All these questions were asked and answered in 10 minutesonly.I was out in 11th minute. The girl waiting for her turn after me , evenasked me didn't they asked you any question? I was surprised and also happy atthat time that I didn't took the pressure of fast questions.


So friends, I would only suggest you not tomug up all the answers and try to be genuine if you dont recall or know theanswer. They are just checking your patience, communication and a lil pressuretesting.


So go on and take your interview as u'll be more confident!!
