Look arround the place, objects etc. and try to relate. I remember in two interviews it was so crucial and I believe those two observations were vital in getting me those assignment. I was in Hindustan Morors , appearing for my first interview of life.There was an engine and gear box model with longitudinal and cross sectional views. There was a question from Transmission system in audtomobile and I just could explain everything that the interviewer, The Quality Controller asked, it was a cake walk, I fact I never saw such a brilliant model that show alll componets of the system.
Another incident I remember was for an interview for a top class certification body. They asked me about Quality Policy and what it really meant. I explained all that I knew at the same time what that certification body's Quality policy was talking as I saw was displaced in vistors seating areas in the reception. and then I could talk so much about this organizations business, , their positioning and how their quality policy was shaping their organization and carrying them forward.Needless to say, I was selected for this wonderful job , that of a quality management system auditor.It was a top class ship classification society and German certification body-one of the top 5 leading companies in the world in their business line
