1 mistake I made was that I wrote MS-SQL in programming languages in CV, the first question asked to me was whether it is programming language or software. I didn't know he was asking from my CV, I confidently said SQL is not a general programming language but is domain-specific and MYSQL/MSSQL is a software to use. Then he pointed out my mistake but I felt confident. The next few questions were very very basic of SQL but I answered a little wrong but difficult ones I answered correctly. So practice well on whatever you have written in CV.
This is relatively easy round. In this, HR tries to know you well and understand your communication skills. This round is important as well. Your presentation matters a lot. Go shaved and very well dressed, this is also crucial. Prepare the HR questions beforehand itself like why this company, why noncore, introduce yourself, etc. Don't be overconfident and go unprepared.
When I entered, Hr stood up and welcomed me warmly with a handshake saying my name. He then asked me about my branch and pointer. The very next question was " There are two guys with same knowledge and same intellect , but one is dressed very well and other just dressed not well, who you would choose for the job and why? " I took a minute and started speaking very specific points about what does that expresses for the candidate and recruiter for about 6 -7 min. I could see that little smile on his face and also that I answered very correctly. He then closed his laptop, leaned towards a little in his chair, and asked "Girish, do you think you are dressed well for the interview?" I was stunned. Due to regular interviews and project presentations, I had a trimmed beard and a roughly ironed shirt. all of 6-7 minutes I spoke against myself. he said I was smart the way I answered, the points I explained, and have good communication skills. But the presentation also matters. He wanted to know reason behind my rough appearance and I told him. Then i was aked other general HR questions. Later he said not to worry and I was selected before leaving the interview.
So go well dressed and presentable and talk well with confidence. Remember the core values told during the PPT and good things about company.
