Problem of the day
Tip 1 : Have short notes to prepare prior to interview, because it might happen that you know the answer but can't frame it in interview due to pressure , so short sticky notes before interview will give help in fast revision.
Tip 2 : Practice as many Dsa questions as possible, but also keep on revisiting them so that famous questions are always on your tips .
Tip 3 : Maintain 2-3 page script for every project on your resume, which will tell which points of project to cover when interviewer asks to explain it.
Tip 1 : Choose resume template and font carefully, according to the amount of content you have , minimizing the white spaces and also highlighting your achievements and keywords.
Tip 2 : While adding the project, highlight the technologies used and also add links of github or live app if possible. Also add achievements of the project for example , If you made an android project , you can mention number of organic downloads .

The technical interview was scheduled on webex teams at 10 am on 11th November 2020.
There were 2 panelists.
Interview went on for around 80 mins where they asked me questions on resume , projects , internships , Networking and Dsa .
Networking was asked because i mentioned a project on my resume that uses Socket.io .
Most of the time of interview was taken up by Dsa question.
It was a managerial round where I was interviewed by a senior person who was interested in knowing my overall personality and my interests rather than technical skills.

It was at 8 am on 15th November. HR just asked me about my expectations with the company, My greatest achievement, Why Cisco , and general HR questions , nothing difficult as such . Then he discussed about job location, PPO and stipend.
