In the 2nd phase, students will be taught the basics strategies of cracking Group Discussions (GDs) to demonstrate their Team working abilities; and also that they can emerge as leaders while still maintaining the Group /Project goals of the organizations. In the third and final stage, post a short & lucid theoretical lecture on how to tackle Interview Questions, students will undergo practical Personal Interview Sessions so as to get a feel of the real scenario and reduce the fear factor.
