This will give you the true picture of how the interviews are conducted. Obviously recruiters won’t let you enter the one-o-one session, but you can assist in most of the other activities like intro session, written test and group discussion etc. This will give you an idea of whats going on.

Brush Your Basics

As you are a fresher, you cannot be asked any questions related to what an experienced professional is asked. But Recruiters have to ask something, right? So, they will assay your basics and check whether you know even the name of the subjects you studied in last two years or not.

Plan Ahead

Life goals
Make your goals clear. Find out what you actually want to do because where there is a will, there is a way.

Learn From Your Failures

Don’t loose your heart if you do not get selected. Rather ask for a feedback from the recruiter. In case you are appearing for a call center interview, recruiter will mostly probably tell you straight away your weak points that are mostly communication related. But when you are going for an interview related to your field, chances for feedback are less.
In the end, it’s actually not the end but the beginning of your professional career. So our best wishes are with you.
