Q 5. What was the interview experience like? Did you feel you were well prepared at the time of the interview? What all resources did you access to prepare for the interview? Which of these provided the most valuable inputs?
The interview was a bit intimidating as the panel was very experienced and had few questions for which I was not prepared.
