Suggestion

Be confident….Have a brief outlook on all the topics u have covered in academics……Give replies with a innocent and
a cute smile whenever required……””A SMILE CAN MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE””…..If u do not know the answer
frankly reply saying“”I DO NOT KNOW””…I have done the same when they asked me about wind energy frequency
control. Don’t get tensed and do not give one word answers….Give short and sweet replies……ALL THE BEST..

No. of Candidate applied And Points that Worked in Favour

Shortlisting was done on the basis of CGPA……..(mine was 9.38).
There were 7 members in the interview room…..All were friendly but the HR guy was staring at me….It was totally a
nice experience…….My interview was at 10.30 PM in the night .I entered the room with full of energy and a big smile
on my face…..They were very impressed by the way I presented myself in the interview……..especially the way I
replied when they asked “”Tell me about yourself and family background?””….””HR really matters”” because u need
to give them a vivid picture of your 20 years life experience in few sentences. But there was one thing I felt would
have been better if I had not done done that in the interview….When they asked me “”Which company would u
choose NTPC or BHEL?””
I replied ”” obviously NTPC because if I have to apply all the concepts and knowledge I have acquired in these 4
years, i strongly feel that NTPC is the right opportunity and moreover BHEL is just a manufacturing company”” Well
wats wrong in this reply……There was one word that made a difference…..can u guess wat it
is………….””JUST””……… …No sooner did I gave that reply than almost all the panel members said in unison that…..””u
say it’s JUST a manufacturing company ( stressing on the word just)……if there is no BHEL then there is no
NTPC………”” ……..then I tried to cover that saying……..””I just meant that BHEL is a part of the story while NTPC is
the main story itself””…..
But my overall performance dominated this small mistake I made……..we tend to make mistakes……they don’t
expect u to be ideal……..I wanted to share this particular conversation with all of u so that it might be helpful to
u…………
