First Placement/Interview experience for a reputed IT MNC


I would be explaining my interview in one of the reputed Indian MNC. After reading this article the students would get an idea what questions are asked in the interview and what are the rounds they have to go through

All of us were excited because a reputed MNC was coming to our college tomorrow. All of us had dreamt of being in the MNC as we had our siblings and friends who would tell us life in the AC cubicle was awesome.Some of them had even gone on foreign trips through this company.
The next day we arrived at the college early at around 9:00 AM. The pattern that was to be followed was

Online test

This test basically comprised of aptitude, reasoning and English. Request you all to go through books namely RS Aggarwal verbal and non Verbal, Quicker Maths by M.Tyra to have a good grasp over the subjects. If you have seen the pattern of a placement paper of a company and read through these books accordingly you will be able to crack almost all the questions in the exam.

I had gone through all these books and I successfully cleared the online test.

Group Discussion

Do not speak too much or too less. It is always better when you speak with stats and figures which means that you know the subject better...
The topic that was given to me was "Failure of Nano Car". There was a person who started and he even said the conclusion and he spoke a lot in between as well. He was not selected because he lacked the art of listening. Some people in the group did not speak so the evaluator in the end told them to put their points. I spoke 3-4 sentences and those were facts regarding the car. I even expressed in a personalized way and quoted it with an example.

Technical Interview Round

The technical round is considered as a tough round by many of the average students .I would like to advice you that please go through you college major project in depth. Do search and understand all the terms related to it. Along with it do a search on the new technologies that are there in the market.
I was asked some of the concepts of OOPS, keys and normalization in DBMS, OSI layers along with proper explanation of my major project.

HR Round / Personal Interview

Every time you go for an interview do remember to read about the job profile and the company. You should be acquainted with the current CEO and the Chairman of the Company, what it manufactures in totality, recent news pertaining to the company and its national ranking.
HR round was good. She basically check my fluency in English by asking some basic question about my family, why I was interested to work for this company, if the company sends me to location far off from my hometown how I would manage, about my hometown and some questions about the company.

Best of luck friends .Hope this article helps you in your future endeavors. Your hard work will definitely pay. Be confident and smart and you would surely win the race.
