Basically he wanted to know what kind of person I am, my thought process, my opinions, etc. Based on what I told him, he gave me situations and asked what would I do in those situations.
We had good discussions on some of the topics which popped up in the process like competitive spirit, push-pull motivation, my hobbies. I described some of the best experiences in my college life. Lastly, he asked me if I had any questions for him. I asked him 3 good questions.
The entire HR round was decent.
Technical interview can be cracked easily. You should have deep knowledge of the projects you mentioned. Stay confident not only about the things you know but also about the things you don't know. In the urge of answering all the questions, you might end up answering something wrong, that too confidently. It is not necessary to know everything in the technical interview, but you need to assure that you have good learning and grasping capability. All you have to be is frank.
In the HR interview also you have to keep holding good discussions on good topics. They check how impressive your personality is based on how you react, the way you think, your confidence and needless to say your communication skills too. Again, all you have to be is frank!
