The workshop of Mock Interviews was arranged for the engineering students on 6th Jan. 2019. Total 17 students attended it.
To begin with, the students were given Aptitude Test paper to solve. Total 50 questions on English, Maths and Reasoning were given and they were expected to solve them in one hour. Snehal Salunkhe got highest marks (68%). This test is the first filter in any interview process & emphasized the importance of practicing for the aptitude test, which is extremely important for the students.
The alumni students had planned an activity in which the mechanical and civil engineering students were asked to construct a bridge using Ice cream sticks and IT and Comp Sc. students were asked to write a program for calculating interest on the principle amount.
Then Mock Interviews of third year and final year students were taken comprising following Experts:
1) IT and Comp Sc – Mr. Parag Rede
2) Mechanical Engineering – Mr Ajay Vishwakarma
3) Civil Engineering – Mrs Vibhavari Joshi
4) Electrical Engineering – Mr. Hemakant Deshpande
The common observation of the panel was that was all students need to concentrate on their basics & more in depth knowledge should be acquired. The interviewers also guided the students how to study, which project to undertake in final year, how to present themselves for the interview etc.
Feedback from the students:
Snehal Salunkhe: Workshop was really helpful. Important factor which I learnd was ‘Time management ‘. Mock interview helped me to recognize my weak points, level of knowledge and also to improve communication skills. Also, I came to know what are the common questions which are often asked in interview and what should be our approach to answer them.
Pryanka Gorile: The workshop was really helpful. specially the interview gave an idea how to face the interview as well as what should be preparation. For aptitude test also it was a mirror that how much practice I need.
Gauri Vaidya: We could get a lot practice of aptitude through online tests, but the actual interviews cleared many things about myself, what I can do better and what I should focus upon
