Here I am relating my experience of my first interview. I have done MBA from Banasthali University situated near Jaipur. The first company to visit our campus was HDFC bank. I was selected in the first round based on my resume. Banasthali is situated 72 kms from Jaipur and the interview took place in Jaipur. We had GD round and then interview. Each round was an elimination round.
My interview was taken by the then State Head of Rajasthan, Mr. Rajeev Bhargava and HR manager.
The interview lasted for around 20 minutes. First of all, I was asked to relax. After brief talks about his first interview, Mr. Bhargava asked me to tell about myself. When I was telling my hobbies which included reading english novels, he asked me which was the latest novel I had read. I replied, it was the latest and the last volume of Harry Potter. Then we had a brief talk about the author. Next, I was asked why HDFC bank and other simple questions.
The interview was not very technical, since I am a Marketing student. When they asked me about my finance knowledge, I replied very frankly that I know what a layman knows since I am a Marketing student and not a Finance student.
Well when the results of the interview came out, I was selected and was asked to appear in the next round which was an aptitude round. I cleared this round too. My course was due to get over after 6 months and though we got our offer letters after 2 months, we got our joining letters after 7 months. It was a long time. But eventually, I did get a call.
