Personal Interview:-
There were two sections in personal interview.
(i) Technical (More Important).
(ii) HR.
(i) In technical, they asked me about myself first .

For this HR part I will suggest you please give the answered correctly with confident and honesty and positive thinking.

 My interview was over but I was very scared about my interview because I don’t see the person who took my interview and  also they were satisfied by my answered  or not .But I was in positive always because my answered  interview satisfied me.


After 20-25 days they send the result to our college TPO. & I was selected.  I was too much happy that day although this was my 2nd JOB from college.


In 18th July’2011 I joined in ESSAR GROUP. Now I am a part of this big MNC organization. I am in Essar Power Limited.

I think my experience may be helping you in your future selection drive for ESSAR GROUP and other Core company also.


Thanking you all

Best of luck............
