The session was held in PG Seminar hall from 9-11 am on 1st April, 2017. Seniors who were placed in various companies shared their experience about the interview and gave a lot of suggestions for preparing for the same.

Firstly, Dr. Jayesh Ruparelia, HOD Chemical Department, started the session by acknowledging the students that this is an important juncture, where students are to be properly guided. He also highlighted the fact that students should know where they want to go, that is, which is their particular field of interest. He also advised that students should try to learn as much as possible from their industrial exposure during training period.

Ruchir Surti and Ravi Singh, placed in Reliance Industried Limited, informed that there are basically two rounds for the interview, technical interview and HR interview. They suggested few books and websites for aptitude test preparation, RS Agrawal and IndiaBIX website, being the most popular ones. They were asked their favorite subjects during their interview so they told us to decide upon some subjects which we could tell to the interviewers.

Harshit Goyal, placed in Galaxy Surfactants, suggested that in case someone is preparing for further studies, they should refrain from telling so to the interviewer, and even if they do, they must assure that it would lie in the best interests of the company. Being at the highest post of any club does not matter to the interviewer, but it is how you drive your interview in the right direction. Project work and training experience are very important areas discussed in interviews. Questions like, where do you see yourself five years down the line, were asked to him in the HR interview. Also, never bluff in an interview, since it creates a bad impression. Almost 70% of the companies follow the no IF criteria, though some companies might not do so, it is essential to have proper information about the companies. For his company, there is an online test which you can give from home, followed by technical and HR interview. Change your favorite subject according to the company and you should know names of famous authors on the subject, also foreign authors. Resume is the most important thing as it is yourself on a paper, so present it well.
