Answer: Sir, my name is ABC. I belong to AAA. I have completed my secondary and senior secondary schooling in (City) under XYZ board. I completed my B.Tech from YYY institute in 20XX. Since my graduation I have been preparing for various competitive examinations including engineering services. My hobbies include XXX & YYYY.
Tips for Hobbies
When you talk about your hobbies and interests in a job interview, don’t lie to or mislead the interviewer. Rather, carefully choose what you say and base responses on what you think the interviewer wants to know about you. Share a mix of interests that demonstrates the skills related to the position. Share your hobbies that show both your organizational skills as well as your care giving skills.

I have completed (one/two) projects during college. Give brief information about college project.

Besides, I have undergone summer training programme at XXX where I learnt about AAAA and this generated an interest towards my branch in Engineering. My favourite subjects are X,Y,Z.

I am optimistic and hardworking by nature. I am curious minded and willing to learn new and exciting skills.
My short-term goal is responsible employment and long-term goal is satisfactory service to the nation.

Answer: Sir, three reasons why I want to be an IES officer. Firstly, it presents me with a wonderful opportunity to work in the best way I can and also concurs with my long-term goals.

Secondly, career prospects are bright. Growth is good and the work itself is multi-faceted encompassing techno-managerial aspects as well.

Last but not the least; it will give me pride to be a part of the nation building process.

These are the reasons why I am so specific about IES.

1. Articulate and inspiring nature.
2. Assemble a team
3. Knowledge utility factor
4. Getting the best out of the colleagues
5. Confidence and commitment toward jobs

With all respect, I am not sure about them but I am sure about myself.

Answer: Sir over the time I have recognised some of my strengths as:

I am result-oriented and believe in team spirit.

I learn things faster.

I am articulate.

I do not trust without verifying.

I am sure that my strengths will be of some use to the job I am applying for.

On the other hand, I assume following to be my weaknesses.

I am a little careless about personal belongings.

I used to be more assertive than usual. But it has reduced since I have started pursuing my hobby of spoof writing.

I know these are my strengths and weaknesses because either I have been told so by others whom I value and some are felt by me in that way.

The parameters that can be used for assessing strengths and weaknesses are: Relevance, consistency and confidence.

Answer: Railways is my first choice because it is the biggest department of Government of India and job is diversified. There is ample scope for modernisation in the coming years. Career growth aspects are better and working for railways is a proud feeling.

Apart from this you must know 1. Rail Budget 2. Recent changes in railways 3. Railway signalling basic 4. Railways major coach factories 5. Railways zone…etc……

If you had given other options(dept.) as your first choice, do gather some info. About their projects, working areas, recent changes and good factors that relates your knowledge.

Answer: Indian railways have three gauges: Broad (1.676 m.), Meter (1 m.) and narrow (0.762 m. Or 0.61m.)

Europeans have standard gauges (1.435 m.). DMRC uses standard gauges.

Answer: I.T.S is my first choice due to my interest in mobile technology and because I see this sector growing by leaps and bounds in the times to come. This sector has become the hotspot of recent technological developments. With advent of technologies like 3G, 4G and ubiquity of Smartphone’s, I think the best phase is yet to come. I believe that this is one technology which can really connect people and thus, help us in accomplishing some key targets. For example e-governance, reduction in crime rates, accountability and others.


Question: Why then XYZ Department as last option?
Answer: It is not that I am hostile to them. If selected I will consider joining them. But compared to the other options, XYZ Department has certain disadvantages. They place in remote areas and thus, social life will be almost non-existent. Since I am the responsible son/daughter of my parents, so I would want to be their support.

Rather than solving five questions on similar concepts. It is better to solve one question with five different methods. It gives knowledge about the shortest methods to be used.

Answer: Sir, I have had an interest in my Branch since my school days. I always wondered how devices / equipments work and how difficult our lives would have been in their absence. Plus, Branch is a technological hotspot where I see a lot of potential in the times ahead. I think it can help achieve some key targets like (Social development, high living standards, and other benefits you can add here).
Major benefits of Engineering

1. Job Satisfaction
It’s important to find a career that you enjoy. After all, you’ll probably be spending eight hours or more a day. Engineering can provide a satisfying field of work.
2. Variety of Career Opportunities
An engineering degree offers a wide range of career possibilities. But the majority of today’s college graduates will have more than one career during their work life, and engineering can provide a strong foundation for almost any one of them.
3. Challenging Work
There is no shortage of challenging problems in engineering. There is no single answer, no answer in the back of the book, no professor to tell you that you are right or wrong. You must devise a solution and persuade others that your solution is the best one.
4. Intellectual Development
An engineering education will exercise your brain, developing your ability to think logically and to solve problems. These are skills that will be valuable throughout your life—and not only when you are solving engineering problems.
5. Potential to Benefit Society
As an engineer, you can choose to work on projects that benefit society, such as cleaning up the environment, developing prosthetic aids for disabled persons, developing clean and efficient transportation systems, finding new sources of energy, alleviating the world’s hunger problems, and increasing the standard of living in underdeveloped countries.
6. Financial Security
Engineering is a lucrative career. Engineering graduates receive the highest starting salary of any discipline.
7. Prestige
Engineers help sustain our nation’s international competitiveness, maintain our standard of living, ensure a strong national security, and protect public safety. As a member of such a respected profession, you will receive a high amount of prestige.
8. Professional Environment
As an engineer, you will work in a professional environment in which you will be treated with respect, have a certain amount of freedom in choosing your work, and have the opportunity to learn and grow through both on-the-job training and formal training.
9. Creative Thinking
Engineering is by its very nature a creative profession. Because we are in a time of rapid social and technological changes, the need for engineers to think creatively is greater now than ever before. If you like to question, explore, invent, discover, and create, then engineering could be the ideal profession for you.

Answer: An officer, who has been appointed under the seal of the governor of the state or President of India, requires to be listed in the Indian Gazette or the State Government Gazette is considered a Gazetted officer. They have the power to verify documents for academic or immigration purposes. More responsibilities and authority is vested but no difference in salary. Following are the groups:

Group A or Class 1 (Gazetted)

Group B or Class 2 (Gazetted and Non-Gazetted)

Group C or Class 3 (Non-Gazetted)

Group D or Class 4 (Non-Gazetted)

But after 6th pay commission, Class 3 and 4 have been merged.

But in states still we have 4 classes.

Answer: Sir for me there is not much of a difference between private sector and PSU’s. Any job where I can apply my technical knowledge and qualities will be deemed fit by me. So far I have not tried for private sector (except in college but their written exam consisted of IT questions) because mostly they need software professionals and they do not fit in my plans as of now. But I have tried in some PSU’s but could not make it through.

Answer: A child’s learning process is initiated by parents. I have learnt self-respect and leadership from father and compassion and responsibility from my mother.

Answer: Always offer your favourite subjects to continue technical discussion.

Answer: Interview DOs

Dress appropriately for the industry; err on the side of being conservative to show you take the interview seriously. Your personal grooming and cleanliness should be impeccable.
Know the exact time and location of your interview; know how long it takes to get there, park, find a rest room to freshen up, etc.
Arrive early; 10 minutes prior to the interview start time [or earlier if the event or employer instructs you to do so].
Treat other people you encounter with courtesy and respect. Their opinions of you might be solicited during hiring decisions.
Offer a firm handshake, make eye contact, and have a friendly expression when you are greeted by your interviewer.
Listen to be sure you understand your interviewer's name and the correct pronunciation.
Even when your interviewer gives you a first and last name, address your interviewer by title (Ms., Mr., Dr.) and last name, until invited to do otherwise.
Maintain good eye contact during the interview.
Sit still in your seat; avoid fidgeting and slouching.
Respond to questions and back up your statements about yourself with specific examples whenever possible.
Ask for clarification if you don't understand a question.
Be thorough in your responses, while being concise in your wording.
Be honest and be yourself — your best professional self. Dishonesty gets discovered and is grounds for withdrawing job offers and for firing. You want a good match between yourself and your employer. If you get hired by acting like someone other than yourself, you and your employer will both be unhappy.
Treat the interview seriously and as though you are truly interested in the employer and the opportunity presented.
Exhibit a positive attitude. The interviewer is evaluating you as a potential co-worker. Behave like someone you would want to work with.
Have intelligent questions prepared to ask the interviewer. Having done your research about the employer in advance, ask questions which you did not find answered in your research.
Evaluate the interviewer and the organization s/he represents. An interview is a two-way street. Conduct yourself cordially and respectfully, while thinking critically about the way you are treated and the values and priorities of the organization.
Do expect to be treated appropriately. If you believe you were treated inappropriately or asked questions that were inappropriate or made you uncomfortable, discuss this with a Career Services advisor or the director.
Make sure you understand the employer's next step in the hiring process; know when and from whom you should expect to hear next. Know what action you are expected to take next, if any.
When the interviewer concludes the interview, offer a firm handshake and make eye contact. Depart gracefully.
After the interview, make notes right away so you don't forget critical details.
Write a thank-you letter to your interviewer promptly. Interview DON'Ts
Don't make excuses. Take responsibility for your decisions and your actions.
Don't make negative comments about previous employers or professors (or others).
Don't falsify application materials or answers to interview questions.
Don't treat the interview casually, as if you are just shopping around or doing the interview for practice. This is an insult to the interviewer and to the organization.
Don't give the impression that you are only interested in an organization because of its geographic location.
Don't give the impression you are only interested in salary; don't ask about salary and benefits issues until the subject is brought up by your interviewer.
Don't act as though you would take any job or are desperate for employment.
Don't make the interviewer guess what type of work you are interested in; it is not the interviewer's job to act as a career advisor to you.
Don't be unprepared for typical interview questions. You may not be asked all of them in every interview, but being unprepared will not help you.
A job search can be hard work and involve frustrations; don't exhibit frustrations or a negative attitude in an interview.
Don't go to extremes with your posture; don't slouch, and don't sit rigidly on the edge of your chair.
Don't assume that a female interviewer is "Mrs." or "Miss." Address her as "Ms." unless told otherwise. (If she has a Ph.D. or other doctoral degree or medical degree, use "Dr. [lastname]" just as you would with a male interviewer. Marital status of anyone, male or female, is irrelevant to the purpose of the interview.
Don't chew gum or smell like smoke.
Don't allow your cell phone to sound during the interview. (If it does, apologize quickly and ignore it.) Don't take a cell phone call. Don't look at a text message.
Don't take your parents, your pet (an assistance animal is not a pet in this circumstance), spouse, fiancé, friends or enemies to an interview. If you are not grown up and independent enough to attend an interview alone, you're insufficiently grown up and independent for a job. (They can certainly visit your new city, at their own expense, but cannot attend your interview.)
Write a thank-you letter to your interviewer promptly. Interview DON'Ts
Write a thank-you letter to your interviewer promptly. Interview DON'Ts
