I found the PI pretty grilling.
I’ve given the PI last year too, that was very conversational.

(Didn’t even smile for a second, the whole time)

Didn’t ask me to introduce, just started shooting questions right away.

Asked questions from graduation (B.B.A.)
Journal entry, questions on inflation, favourite subjects etc.

Even after all right answers they’d say they don’t agree or that the answers are incomplete.

They cut me mid answers and said let’s move to next question. And did the same in the latter questions too.

Asked about my family and their business, got roasted a lot that whatever I’ve contributed is not enough and my degree is a waste and stuff as I didn’t use BBA knowledge anywhere. (My dad is already an MBA)
Listed down my contributions and inputs , still they weren’t satisfied and at this point I knew the nature of this PI is grilling itself.

A few current affair questions on cabinet ministers, answered.

Asked about the role I’d go for during placements, answered.

Grilled a bit on work ex. that it’s not relevant to the role and that I don’t have enough to offer, etc. (I have 21months work ex. in relevant field)

Asked about a few questions on my favourite subject, answered.

Asked to sign out. Wished me luck and they finally smiled!
