location_city Bengaluru schedule Jun 25th 02:30 - 02:50 PM place Grand Ball Room 1 people 3 Interested

This small talk is about the intricate fabric of discussion between an interviewer and an interviewee for the post of Automation Engineer.

The audience would be taken through a maze of silly, run of the mill, subjective, bizarre and occasionally brilliant questions/answers/discussions found in an average interview for Automation Engineer/Selenium Engineer. 

We'll try to look at the 4 quadrants of the Selenium Interview circle, covering it from the perspectives of :

  1. The Interviewer
  2. The Interviewee
  3. Current Industry state
  4. How can we improve?

This might seem like a soft, non-technical, not-so-important topic of discussion but we must remember that bad interviews lead to bad candidates lead to bad deliverables. As they say, For want of a nail the battle was lost. 

And in today's cut-throat world none of us can afford losing a good candidate to a bad interview.

Lets gather around a fire of questions, on the beach of answers to surgically comprehend the What, How and Why of Selenium Interviews.
