Interview Preparation Tips

Interview preparation tips for other job seekers - And finally after 1 hr I received the feedback from the HR over the mail that I am not selected I have revert back to the mail and shared my conversation with the HR.

The HR is saying that the interviewers are looking for a better candidate and you could not pass this interview.

Like seriously the interviewer and the HR both said completely different things to me and I had the worst kind of experience ever till date.

So I request you guys think twice before applying in this company !!
