Answering the most important question on ‘ Why interview, in spite of an examination and value added marks sheets? ” Ronald Pinto said, “An employer do not want your brain but your skills. Your brain is evaluated through your marks, but your skills are assessed through your interview. Only a face-to-face interaction could help an employer in finding a right person.”
