There were 2 rounds of tech interviews. In the first interview questions on OS,DS,networks were asked.

PERSONAL INTERVIEW (HR)

I did very well in the HR round. Questions were:

  • Tell us about your family
  • What are the faults in our interview process?

Then I was given the opportunity to ask questions to them. It is important to ask work related questions rather than place of posting and salary.It denotes  enthusiasm in the work.

 

SUMMARY OF EXPERIENCES

My selection was totally unexpected.The experience was great.

 

SUGGESTIONS TO JUNIORS

My CGPA when I attended the interview was 7.3. I had to compete with 8 pointers and 9 pointers for the job.So 7 pointers need not worry. If you have your logic right and speak confidently,the job is yours. Moreover they look more at the way we think than the amount of knowledge we have in any subject.
