It was a very relaxed interview. Started with an open ended question of introducing myself.
Was interjected in middle of my answer as they started asking a lot of questions on my client company.
They questioned its exorbitantly priced products and the modus operandi. However, I maintained a calm disposition throughout this confrontation. As I am a big fan and loyalist of the firm that is our client, I did not budge an inch and kept on defending the policies and products of the firm in question.
At times it felt as if they were making fun of my statements but I took it in its stride and laughed along.
In the end one of the panelists said "You do a good sales pitch. You should be in sales. What are you doing in IT Services?"
I honestly felt that this was sarcasm at its best and not a genuine complement.
Finally they asked a couple of questions regarding my pay package and whether I am considering resignation or sabbatical from my current job.
I had no idea how I fared in the interview as it was not at all on the lines I had prepared. The only thing that I remember now is that I was smiling throughout - a childhood symptom of being nervous without revealing it to the person sitting in front
Final result : Admitted !!!!
Tips : Be firm on your stand and don't switch sides. Be confident, genuine and honest
