My PI EXPERIENCE I was the last one to face the interview in the whole group.

There were 4 panels made and I was in panel 1. In panel 1, there were H.O.Ds and V.K. Nangia sir, the head of DoMS Roorkee. We were told by seniors that there won’t be much technical questions in the panel 1.By the time I was called for the interview two of the professors left the room. I feel that they were tired of taking interviews. Nevertheless, I went in with maintaining all decencies. I was offered seat by the panel. There were 2 ladies and one gentleman. 1st Lady: So Prashant you have 30 months of experience. Tell me about that. Me : Maam I have been working with HCL for last 30 months and I have worked on 3 projects AC,DUKE and CBOP.And maam along with working with HCL I have joined and NGO(which I actually have) and I teach small children. 1st Lady: Oh ok so what is that. What’s the of the NGO (asked some details) Me : Maam the NGO is Vidya and Children.
