I have given about 4-5 interviews but the first time I found that the interviewer also kept their webcam on.
And my interview was very interactive and the Sir who had taken my interview was very generous and supportive in nature. I would always be grateful to him. Some of the questions which were asked in my interview is-

9. Interviewer said, I am done with your interview. Do you have any questions?

That’s all about my interview questions.
