The candidates are also selected for written tests as per their knowledge and the number of position available to judge the candidate’s suitability and candidate’s stability in the organization.
The candidates who clear the written tests become eligible for HR rounds of face to face interview. This is basically the final round to get to 70 % clarity in the candidate’s selection process.
