Interview preparation tips for other job seekers - A major mistake I made I ended up speaking fast which left to open to many breaks in my sentences. Take your time & think before speaking. Also I was overconfident & ended up saying I don't have any questions at the end.

Brush up basic technical skills. There is a high possibility they might test you for something from your degree or certification which may not be relevant to the job description mentioned or even the role you applied for.

The interview will be very casual.

Interview Preparation Tips

Interview preparation tips for other job seekers - Bad experience, the interviewers kept interrupting and did not let me complete an answer, was as if they wanted to have their say more than the interviewee and have a normal discussion. They didn't even bother to explain the role, responsibility , sturcture, expectations etc. ,Nothing, just kept asking their side for their in a condescending and bad attitude. They were least interested in answering about the work culture and was as if they did not want anyone to join a toxic environment 😂 Lol
