ISRO, Indian Space Research organisation is one of the top six space organisation of the world along with NASA (USA) , RKA (RUSSIA) , ESA (Europe) ,CNSA (China) & JAXA from Japan. ISRO has covered long distance since its launch of first space satellite name Aryabhatta in 1975. Generally ISRO conducts recruitment for its intake and eligible candidates are from Computer science engineering , Electronics Engineering & Mechanical Engineering.
Some of Key questions being asked during interview at ISRO are as follows:
1. Tell me about yourself:
The most often asked question in interviews. You need to have a short statement prepared in your mind. Be careful that it does not sound rehearsed. Limit it to work-related items unless instructed otherwise. Talk about things you have done and jobs you have held that relate to the position you are interviewing for. Start with the item farthest back and work up to the present. Never tell your weaknesses always focus on your strength.
2. What do you know about this organization?
This question is one reason to do some research on the organization before the interview. Find out where they have been and where they are going. What are the current issues and who are the major players?
3. If you had enough money to retire right now, would you?
Answer yes if you would. But since you need to work, this is the type of work you prefer. Do not say yes if you do not mean it.
4. What would you like to be doing five years from now?
Again, this question is asked to find out whether you are committed to the job. The fact is that there are people who hop from job to job, and that is because they don’t really have a solid plan to follow.
Another reason for popping this question is to see whether you are someone who sets goals in life. It’s indisputable that people who set long-term goals are more reliable than those who don’t. I mean, knowing what you want in life says a lot about your personality, perhaps as a person who can lead and stay motivated.
5. Describe your management style.
Try to avoid labels. Some of the more common labels, like progressive, salesman or consensus, can have several meanings or descriptions depending on which management expert you listen to. The situation style is safe, because it says you will manage according to the situation, instead of one size fits all.
6. Describe your work ethic.
Emphasize benefits to the organization. Things like, determination to get the job done and work hard but enjoy your work are good.
7. What is more important to you: the money or the work?
Money is always important, but the work is the most important. There is no better answer
8. What has disappointed you about a job?
Don’t get trivial or negative. Safe areas are few but can include: Not enough of a challenge. You were laid off in a reduction Company did not win a contract, which would have given you more responsibility
9. What kind of salary do you need?
A loaded question. A nasty little game that you will probably lose if you answer first. So, do not answer it. Instead, say something like, That’s a tough question. Can you tell me the range for this position?
In most cases, the interviewer, taken off guard, will tell you. If not, say that it can depend on the details of the job. Then give a wide range.
10. Do you have any questions for me?
Always have some questions prepared. Questions prepared where you will be an asset to the organization are good. How soon will I be able to be productive? and What type of projects will I be able to assist on? are examples.
