It has been observed in general that our Students lack the Experience and Confidence of attending interviews. They are neither well aware of the Interview pattern and process nor are they prepared for it. They struggle to find out what to put-together, which subjects or skills hold significance for them, what are their strengths and weaknesses and how to harness and overcome them. They remain clueless about how to introduce themselves at the Interviews, about Resume Writing, about making the first Impression etc.
