    The recruitment was through the campus interview. The interview panel consisted of seven senior management personnel including an Executive Director (or a General Manager). The initial stage consisted of shortlisting of resume through the placement cell (career cell). The second and the final stage consisted of interview which took around 20-25 minutes for each student. Most of the questions asked were related to basic thermodynamics.

    This response sets a nice tone for starting the interview. The interviewee is able to say a lot within 60 seconds by staying focused. The message is clear: the interviewee has both passion and focus relating to the position. He stays on message and concludes by leaving the door open for additional questions about his education and experience. Unfortunately some candidates get off on the wrong foot by rambling on for several minutes about their childhood, family, hobbies, travels, and interests.
    Repeat Key Accomplishment Statements
    Throughout the interview you will be asked numerous questions about your attitude and ability to do the job. Whenever possible, talk about your accomplishments in terms of what you did and the results of your actions for employers. Give examples of your effectiveness, which should include specific skills and statistics.
