How to prepare for EPFO interview

Rank 32 Shikhar Dhavan has given following tips about interview preparation: (click me to read his full interview)

  • Personality Test (PT) is similar to civils as the same board conducts the interview. The weightage of PT is 25 % this time.
  • Though it is less when compared to 50 % last time but it would still be quite critical in final selection.
  • My interview was in the Alka Sirohi Board. The questions asked ranged from electronics engineering (my grad subject), supercomputers, search engine techniques, ongoing current affairs issues like FIFA football tournament protests in Brazil, about places in Bhopal, Bhopal Gas Tragedy (very detailed questions and my views on ethical moral and legal issues involved in it esp. about quantum of compensation by Supreme Court), few basics of EPF Act & some other labour laws.
  • It lasted for around 20-25 mins. Overall it was satisfactory, I tried to remain positive and I think that helped me despite not being able to answer some technical and current affairs questions.
  • Further, this post being for providing social security to the workers, interview board does tests aspirants approach / attitude towards the downtrodden and low income groups of society.
