I Raghu studying biotechnology, i am going to face an interview in next couple of months. Actually, i am switching to software from biotechnology. So, i would like to know the answer for " Why biotechnology? Why software? " during my HR round.
You are shifting from Bio to software.
There must have been some reason for this shift.
What ever motivated you to take this shift needs to be explained in logical fashion.

Actually, i would like to answer like this " i love software as well as biology but finally i want to be in software field. so, to include biology in my academic path i have chosen biotechnology and even in biotech, there is a subject called BIOINFORMATICS which deals with computer software and the first year students of all respective branches have the common subjects like C languages. On other hand we have an elective system where we can choose few subjects from CSE branch."
is this enough? as an HR how you react after listening to this Sir/Mam?

Should be ok enough.
The confident way you speak will make a difference.
Link between your two interests should be spelt out.
Be more informed on bioinformatics in depth view..
The way you answer questions, demeanour and confidence as a whole will help.
No single question will determine your success in the interview.
What type of job have you applied for?

i am a third-year biotech student and we are going to face interviews in coming couple of months. so, i have started preparing for that.
Dear colleague,
If you emphasize that you see lot of opportunity in applying the knowledge gained in bioinformatics to biotechnology or medical field in general, it will be more convincing.
