The interview procedure consisted of three rounds Group Discussion, Technical round and finally the HR round.
I was very much excited for the interview. And this being my 8th interview attempt I had built my confidence through my previous interviews. Being a stutterer a group discussion was very difficult for me to crack. Earlier I had attempted 3 group discussion rounds in which I failed all the times and because of GD I couldn’t proceed to further rounds. I had this thought going through my mind before the start of the group discussion. Then my turn came and we were a group of 10 people. We were given some time to settle down. I took this time to calm myself. Our topic for the GD was missing aircrafts. I was familiar with this topic because very recently I had watched a programme on it on TV. So I was confident enough to speak on it. Then the discussion began and I was waiting for my chance to talk. Then came my turn I spoke for about 1-2 minutes about the topic. In the middle I had stammered sometimes but very mildly but I kept talking. Thanks to the memories which I have got my attending TISA meetings. I was always asked to think about the good memories which I get by attending TISA meetings every Sunday. These memories really helped me during the GD. I had even used the awareness speaking technique during the GD which really helped me a lot. I was shortlisted for the next round. I was very happy to get selected for the next round.
Now coming to the Technical round the questions that were asked me to were my introduction, some questions on C language. During the interview I stammered few times but still I spoke very confidently. I think this might be the reason which impressed the interviewers. I have been selected for the HR round. I had waited for the HR round for almost for 4 hours. I was the last person waiting outside for the HR round. My name was called I went inside and then began my HR round. I was asked to introduce myself. I was asked about my project and the HR round really went very well. Throughout the interview I spoke very confidently. I was using the awareness technique which really helped me. I completed my HR round and I was asked to wait.
Our results were announced about 1 hour after my HR and my name was announced I really felt very happy. I was eagerly waiting for this happy moment from quite a long time. I attended 7 interviews in which I failed all the times but never had I lost my confidence. Thanks to TISA meetings for building my confidence. The confidence I have gained was of great use to me. In my earlier interviews I stammered but I didn’t speak confidently but during this interview I spoke very confidently and I had even used the awareness speaking technique. Thanks to TISA once again and I would like to thank our SHG-Hyderabad co-ordinator Rajesh and my other SHG group members for helping me. He was the one who helped me a lot during the TISA meetings. Thanks a lot Bro.
Finally based on my past experiences I would like to tell this to everyone that just speak confidently during the interview. Don’t think about stammering. Just be confident and you will succeed for sure.
