Good luck! I love to ask where they see the company in the next five years and how they got to where they are today. People love the opportunity to talk about themselves and it shows you admire them.

Hello Folks, I have completed my Technical and Managerial rounds in Nagarro last week and got the confirmation from consultancy that I have cleared the interviews and will schedule a call with HR as per availability.
My question is usually how long does Nagarro HR takes to release the offer ? as its been 2 weeks since my final interview is done.

A question for hiring managers out there: how important are follow-ups right after an interview? I feel like I’m just being pushy for a response when I send one, even though it’s really just to thank them for their time. Has anyone found that it stands out when someone does this? Or does it have the opposite effect, like it’s unnecessary? Thanks!

Hi there!
I completed the last round of an interview (presentation) last week. Originally they said they would be calling my references & then make an offer accordingly.
Today they updated that they'd like me to travel to their HQ (based in Nordics & I'm in London) for the final round where I'd meet the CEO, the hiring manager and a couple of people in the team.
I don't think I'm the only one in the process - even though initially the last round was the presentation.
What are your thoughts?

I have an interview coming up at BCG for a PL role. I've never done a case interview before but have been practicing for a few months now.
