  • In Group discussion general topics are there like in my GD topic given was- Punjab-The story of unrealised potential. In this interviewer just want to check your expressive tendency i.e you can express your ideas in a team or not. GD was mass elimination round (only 7 student got selected out of 21 student).
  • After GD 1st round of interview was technical based but the profile offered to us is Technical Marketing so technical portion was not that much.
    • 1st round of interview was Situational Interview in which interviewer gave me a marketing situation and asked me for the solution, situation given to me was- Sweet Biscuits are there on the table and interviewer said me that he was suffering from Diabetes and he is 54 years old, from 20 years he didn’t eat sweet biscuits and he don’t even like its smell.
