Interview: two



As I have told you, I have given my first interview and was preparing for next. I was called to report at 1pm. I walked in and came to know that there is a delay in the interview process. So I waited and waited and finally my name was called at 7:15pm. I got up and followed the volunteer. He directed me to a room. Firstly I was to be interviewed by a technical person but he transferred me to HR. So the HR person interviewed me. He was a nice guy and a very patient person. Firstly he told me to introduce myself. I told him about me, my hobbies etc. After that he asked some technical questions and I answered them. I must
say that he was the first man I have seen who was following every basic definition of a good communication. Firstly he was letting me speak and after I have expressed myself only then he was starting. Even I forgot this principle sometimes, but he didn’t, even for a single time. After that he asked some more question about my hobbies. Like what you write about? I answered it. Then he said that he has asked what he has to. If I have any question, I can ask. So I asked him something about company and got my answer.
                What I liked about this interview was that he was a very good listener. He maintained constant eye contact with me throughout the interview and yeah, I forgot to smile. Once in the middle of interview I thought of smiling but that would have been very awkward moment. So after the interview I asked a question. He smiled at the question and then answered it. After that I said thank you, shook his hand and left.
                Now what do you think, Will I get selected? Well, I know the answer and with the grace of God and some people who encouraged me day before (Sachin sir, people responded to my last post and one of my friends too), it is a yes. I have got placed in Infosys.  A lot of my friends have told me that I am not looking happy with it. I think the reason is, I never thought of getting selected in second attempt. I am also surprised. I had thought that I will get lucky after several attempts. But this miracle has happened. I think this time, God was with me.
