    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at HDFC Standard Life Insurance in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was pretty simple. They basically took me right out of college for the summer, and a simple interview would determine whether you can convince them or not, about being capable of carried what they wanted from you. I think if you have good communication skills, its a bonus, since the job requires you to interact with different people.
