M.A. in Social Work (Livelihoods and Social Entrepreneurship) – Interview Experience

On the second day of ongoing TISS interview, we interacted with a student from the course, M.A. in Social Work (Livelihoods and Social Entrepreneurship), to know her experience about her interview session. She did her graduation from media.

With three panelists for evaluation, her session started with the extempore round. Her topic was “Gender in Bollywood”. As usual,1 minute was assigned for collecting points and 2 to 3 minutes for speaking. Then she moved towards interview round.

She informed us that most of her questions were from her Biosketch. Other than that, these questions were asked from her: –

  1. Speak about your biosketch.
  2. Why do you want to join this course?
  3. What is your preference?
  4. Why have you shifted from mass media to this course?
  5. Tell us about some social initiatives that you have organized.
  6. Name few National Rural Livelihood Schemes.
  7. How will you promote Make in India.

About the panelists, she told us that they were very cooperative and calm. They even helped her out when she stuck in between by comforting and giving her certain hints. But she mentioned that questions were a bit tricky and interconnected. Those were mostly opinion based.

She also informed us that it takes almost two hours before the actual session starts.

Her interview session was for about 20 minutes including the extempore.
