I had just received a notice for interview in Mumbai and decided to reach the city by flight. The interview was going to be held in two days time from the receipt of the notice. Ticket booking was done on Air India, through the carrier’s website.
I decided to stay in the city for three days, so that after the interview I could also sightsee and explore its many tourist attractions.

My journey on the carrier lasted two hours, during which time was enjoyed meals. After the flight landed, I came out of the airport and took a cab to the hotel accommodation.

About The Majestic Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport
As I was leaving I could not but help admire the wonderful Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport. Initiated in 1942, it was named after the 17th century Maratha emperor – Chhatrapati Shivaji. The structure is huge and it is the second busiest airport in the country, in terms of passenger traffic and cargo.

My Stay Was In a Simple Two Star Hotel
I stayed in the beautiful Hotel Imperial Palace which is a lovely two star hotel, with simple but neat interiors. Located in Near Crawford Market, Cst Railway it has twelve rooms. The hotel’s ambience is so cozy that it makes you feel at home right away. My room was small, well furnished and comfortable. I had to venture out for meals. Other guest facilities are room service, internet, housekeeping and laundry.
I took a hotel cab to reach the venue where the interview was going to take place. I was asked questions about my work experience, after which I then took a written test. I was informed that I would be told about the interview results the following day, so I came back to the hotel to rest and retire as I had spent the whole day from morning till evening in the interview venue.
The next day I got a call saying that I had got the job. I packed up to leave for the flight in the evening, so that I could reach home, inform my parents about the new job and then pack gain to arrive in Mumbai to begin at my new job.
