Raman Mishra(CS) - DELL
Team MM | Jun 30, 2015
Q: Are you satisfied with the company you are placed in or you expected a better company?
A: I’m proud of my company, my first step in the long journey. It’s bluechip. They cared for me; I’ll certainly care for them. I believe in the Aristotelian value of satisfaction. Values are the prime movers of life, and satisfaction is transient a la Higg’s boson. The spirit knows no bounds!
Q: Were there any challenges that you faced in the beginning of the placement season?
A: I had the only challenge that was to convince my interviewers that I was the best. I think they also returned with the same conviction.
Q: Were you rejected by any other company? If yes, what could be the possible reasons?
A: I was not ever rejected by any company; I was not found suitable once earlier. I agreed. My technical skill required a little more brush-up. I came back remarkably well this time.
Q: How many levels were there in the selections procedure of this company?
A: There were three levels of selection for Dell. First was the written round, the second was technical and the last was HR.
Q: What preparations did you make to get through the written rounds?
A: Questions in the written round were asked from whatever had been taught to us in the last three years. During the last summer I had revised some of the subjects which I thought would be important for placements.
Q: What preparations did you make to get through the GD rounds?
A: There were no GD rounds.
Q: What preparations did you make to get through the Interview rounds?
A: I did not prepare anything specifically for the interview rounds as questions in the interview can cover anything from subjects to hobbies. Projects happened to be not the least important. It’s important to analyse life and events thereof and face interview as a heart to heart interaction, what you know and believe in. The task becomes so simple!
Q: Any tips or suggestions for the juniors?
A: Take classes seriously and do not limit the areas of interest to the respective branches only. Learn new things. What is important is not only a good grip on a subject or two, but development as a complete person.
Q: Can you briefly explain your overall experience of the placement season?
A: It’s extremely challenging to convince veterans from world class companies that what they search for is here and now, more so when competitors can be underestimated to one’s own peril.
