In the 1st round, they mainly discussed my resume, projects, and what I have done so far till my 4th year. 2nd round was more of core knowledge on subjects like process control, control system. Questions like, what do you like about this subject? what is the scope of your branch? were asked. The platform used was Zoom meeting.

Answer: There was one HR round. They asked 3-4 questions like, where do you wanna see yourself after 10 years? Why do you want to join Reliance?
Question 5: What were the key factors for your selection?
Answer: Confidence level and knowledge of core subjects.
Question 6: What are the things students should focus on in order of priority?
Answer: See if you are preparing for core, then just prepare well what you have been taught in class. Be clear with basic concepts of electronics. Like in the semiconductor industry basic questions were asked like, how does a transistor work? working principle of BJT and its characteristics? and all. So, just work upon your basics. Companies usually check your level of knowledge. On the other hand, if you want to go in consultancy, then you can prepare for that within 2 months because they basically check your communication skills but if you are preparing for an IT company then start it’s preparation in 3rd year as high competition is there.
Question 7: According to you, what role do extracurricular activities as well as participation in societies play?
Answer: According to me one should join at least one society because being in a society helps in building management skills and confidence level. It will not help you directly during placements but will build you internally.
Question 8: Any Other Advice you would like to give to your juniors?
Answer: Don’t overthink, don’t be depressed, just enjoy your life. Just make a plan that okay I wanna do this/that, rest explore, make friends and build your overall personality.
Question 9: How can we contact you? (LinkedIn Profile Link/Contact No./etc.)
