3. HR Round:
HR round is very easy if you have good command over English language. The interviewer just checks yours communications skills and confidences. Sometimes, they may even asked technical and logical questions to check your logical skills.
The HR will try to may you nervous (so that you can loose your confidants), so be prepared & have a good smile and never get trapped into that situation.
