    Interview

    Case study task
    HR Interview
    Principal Consultant interview via teleconference
    The interview is hard mostly because the panels and the staff are not friendly, stressed out maybe because the sheer numbers of interviews they have to endure in recruiting new staffs for Bandar Iskandar HQ.
