Ok but still sommme questions technical atleast. please.
And also...about the HR questions to know what kind of individual we are....what tips would you give? Because one thing I know they do not want aggressive, challenging, annoying, over smart, over confident people who know or act to know everything. Few HR questions or answers would be appreciated plz.
