One member asked me simple questions like,
- How much you want as your basic salary?
- Do you have previous experience with a real client?
- How many projects did you complete?
Those questions are so simple. So I felt like winning the world. After a few days, they called me to the second Interview.
That Interview is a one-hour coding interview. Basically, I have to build a small CMS (content management system) application. For me, it’s like a piece of cake.
I made grate applications according to their requirements within one hour. So I felt the same as my first day.
After 2-3 days, they call me for the third Interview. And they gave me the time to face that Interview. So I went there. At that time, my confidence level boost to 100%.
