Honest Question

Placement season in the B-School. Pressure, anxiety and tension was palpable in the air. I was just another rat in the race, attending one GD after another and many interviews in between.

In one such interview I was sitting opposite a panel of experienced interviewers who were ready to test me. They asked me all sorts of questions, HR, academics, currents affairs, economics, extracurricular activities and what not. The interview was very long, it lasted for more than half an hour. I managed to answer all questions really well. The panel was very much impressed and almost ready to hire me, I guessed that from their expressions.

At the end of the interview, one of the interviewer asked me, "Would you like to ask something about our company?"

One question I was waiting to ask for half an hour and I couldn't resist the temptation.

I asked, "What is the name of your company?"

The disclaimer was almost disappointing to read! :-) I'm sure you'd have had the gumption to do it in a real-life situation! Once again, have a great Summers1

"The interview was very long, it lasted for more than half an hour"
ROTFL.
Reminds me of this one time ( at the band camp....) I was at this interview which was still on after one and half hour of starting and I said "I am sorry gentlemen, but now I am sure I don't wan't to join your organization. I am sorry for wasting your time!" Their jaw fell and I left the room with a sorry face.
Nobody questions your for hour and half if they find you are emtpy or are not interested in you. My skills were up to date and so was my knowledge. I passed my test. :)
