Summer Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee
Delhi (India)

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Indian Railways.

Interview Details – I applied for summer internship at Indian Railways during June-July 2014. There is a standard procedure for applying for it via their office but the chances of getting an offer this way are there only if you are from a top engineering college. I applied there this way only. The other way which is a bit easier is that you apply through the reference of some employee of the Railways.

Interview Question – there was nothing unexpected as this was only a summer intern.   Answer Question
