———————- HR Interview ———————- There was no technical questions or interview only HR. I will not describe it as a dialogue,just want to say some points.
(1)Tell abt urself? —>dont gv ur intro,tell about your qualities,skills etc. with good examples.
(2)HR’s r very friendly,but u dont be too friendly .just keep a smile on ur face
to hide ur tension.
(3)Just keep cool,he might ask 1 or 2 easy puzzles to check presence of mind.
(4) Keep full knowledge of your resumespecially hobbies.
Rest u must have read in other papers blah blah ,i hate this blah.

Atlast: about me ,my interview was dynamic,i impressed the hr very much ,but he was just pretending to be impressed and i came to know about this when the results were declared. I was not selected may be due to age ,year gap factor or because i did not had any certificates of extra curriculars in my folder.So, i was disheartened. But,now i m back to work. Hope,My paper helps you. hope u all have good luck.not a bad one like me. And for IT companies selections i want to say: “every dog has his day”
