How I know about my selection for IBM Interview i.e. Round 3
After completion of both rounds, I came to my home and was thinking that I had not done that much bad paper as I am expecting knowing the difficulty level of exam, I had a full confidence that I can clear this round and same happened, after two- three days, there was a mail came from IBM for an interview opportunity under Software Engineer position.
Date, time and venue were all mentioned in that mail. I was feeling very excited and although nervous also as interviewing in one of top companies of India is not so much easy.
I prepared for interview session and finally interview day arises.
I went to interview venue and after few time of waiting, a member from selection committee told me to go to conference room where IBM interview process is going on.
I entered the conference hall and I saw four persons are sitting in that room out of which three are male members and one female member.

Declaration of Result
Finally my IBM interview ended and I was waiting for my result at the receptionist area. One of the members from recruiter team came to me that the results will be declared through mail after two-three days. So, I went back to home.
Though I know that result is going to be announced in 2-3 days but due to my consciousness I regularly checked my mail. Finally, after few days I got a mail from IBM written on it that I had cleared my Interview round, so I had been cordially invited to take my offer letter.
I can’t express my feelings after reading that mail and similarly I am not able to write it .I hope that you guys understand and if you want to feel that same feeling, then you must also apply for recruitment and one day you will got success like me.
