Round 3 HR Interview Round:
This was the last round of the interview process, where I had a face to face interview with the HR Team.  There were three interviewers seated in the boardroom, and they asked me to take a seat. They went through my resume, and accordingly asked me some of the resume related questions. Later they asked me some personal questions about my family background, favorite subject, and a few questions on my major projects. 

Further, they asked me about my ability to work as a team and also tested me with a situation. The entire interview lasted for approximately 20-25 minutes. This round also went pretty well and fortunately I got selected.

Later the company emailed me the offer letter for one month training program conducted after a week of the interview. The company reviewed my performance in the training session. They were satisfied with my work and sent me the joining letter after a month of training.
