Me: OK sir. I will correct it next time.
M2: So, what is the currency of England?
Me: I knew it was Pound. But, I don’t know how to use country name before. After thinking, i said English Pound. Once again, panel members started laughing and I feel I am sitting like a joker in front of them.
M1: No, dear. It is Great Britain Pound.
M2: Shilling is the currency used by which country?
Me: Again, I gave the wrong answer. (M4 corrected my answer)
They were discussing with themselves for some seconds. Finally, head of the panel(M2) told me that, Balaji you are the person sitting like an interviewer, and we the people who are attending interview to you. Once again, they all are laughing at me. Finally, the panel members told me All the very best.
Me: Thank You so much sirs and Thank you mam.
F1 didn’t ask any questions to me. She was just staring at me or she might be the silent observer I think. M4 is the man who makes fun of me. M1 is the man who helped me a lot while i am answering.
My whole interview went like GD. I have faced so many cross questions. My whole interview was in Tamil only. Do well guys…
Thank You Balaji for sharing your Interview Experience with us.
All the Best :)
