Third Round : HR Round
They asked us to prepare one presentation on any topic from emerging technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Blockchain etc., . I prepared one presentation on Machine Learning and I was asked to present the topic to the HR. They were quite impressed with my presentation and communication skills. They only check whether you can express your ideas or not.
• Be ready with one presentation on any topic prior to the day of interview process.
• Also bring your passport size photographs(atleast 3-4) on the day of interview process.
While we were waiting for our chances for first round(i.e., Technical round), recruiters asked us to prepare one presentation on emerging technologies and two selfie videos, first video about “your introduction” and second video about your role model.
After HR round they saw those two selfie videos that they had asked us to prepare. After calculating the total marks of every round they announced the result.
I was one of those 12 people who were waiting for the results after that day long process. Unfortunately I could not make it to the final list. But Still I am sharing my experience to help other geeks. All the best and Prepare well.
Believe in yourself.
Hope it will help.
