Me :I told about my academic ,strength.. bla bla…
Tech :how you rate yourself in c out of 5?assume 1 is highest and 5 is worst.
Me: I told 2(then I thought what I told it was too high). then I supposed to get some complicated pointer based questions.
Tech: excellent !you are too good at c.ok dear can u solve a program?

After tech interview I was very tense that I didn’t explained clearly the things…I could perform better. but I failed to do that. i was thinking what should I do next, either wait outside or leave. i rethought and decided to confirm at least to hr. i asked to receptionist that about the result. she told me to sit until get any confirmation from hr. after 45 minutesReceptionist called to receive a call of hr. hr told to go for lunch and come back soon. then she would tell the result. i was feeling nervous. my hunger had gone…I was only drinking water…I was praying for god!
Then hr called 3 person for hr round including me.. i was surprised and become a happy lot….i decided I will perform much better than previous…no any fault…I must have to get this golden opportunity. the two guys came out with offer-letter. now my turn to get enter in hr cabin…
