HCL conducted a special interview training session for STeP students at the AROH centre in Noida. The session was conducted by HCL employees for 3 hours, where they explained the young boys and girls of STeP about the pre-requisites of answering an interview well.
The employees explained that a candidate’s professionalism and performance in the interview are considered the most important in the hiring procedure. The students were also briefed about the change in job seeking trends in the current scenario and the ways to deal with them.
The session began with a round of formal introduction. This was followed by a detailed slide presentation of how to best attempt an interview. There were details training the students how to be dressed appropriately and have the correct body language for interviews, how to develop an effective resume and other dos and don’ts of interviews. A group discussion was also conducted on gate-crashing, first impressions and overcoming hesitations.
Since these students would soon be facing interviews on the completion of their STeP course, a mock interview session was also conducted. The 3 hour long session came to an end with an open discussion of all career related doubts and queries. The STeP students discussed their career concerns with the HCL employees and were very happy with the counseling they were given and appreciate their efforts and contribution.
