It found very interesting activity for me. I learned a lot of new things from this activity. i learn how to communicate with professional people.I want to share some of my experience which i get after taking this informal interview. the most important point which i get is that never give up and always try to welcome all the opportunity that will enhance your skills and make you batter and batter. Because he tells his story how i got job and what are the mistake that i did during my interview as well as during job. so these information will be very fruitful for me He also offer me that if you need more help i will meet you with my boss which will provide you brief detail about you career in that field.
