Q: Are you satisfied with the company you are placed in or did you expect a better company?
A: I aimed for better companies (by better I mean, companies providing higher packages). Well, from my knowledge Tejas Networks is a great place to start one’s career as a fresher. Yes, I am happy with what I have. Satisfied? May be, not completely.
Q: Were there any challenges that you faced in the beginning of the placement season?
A: There are many. It might have been easier if I had started practicing coding earlier. Written tests and Technical Interviews had never really given me a hard time. HR Interview rounds were the most hectic rounds for me. I believed that luck was something I hadn’t had.
Q: Were you rejected by any other company? If yes, what could be the possible reasons?
A: Capgemini (I was dropped at Interview), Deloitte (Presentation round), Oracle (Tech interview), Innoplexus (HR Interview), NCR Corp (HR Interview), Ramco Systems (Interview), SAP Labs (Managerial Round)... The reason could be, me not preparing for the question, “Why do you want to join our Company?” ;)
I think Capgemini rejected me for being overconfident. Deloitte for poor presentation skills. Oracle for not being able to write optimized code. Innoplexus rejected me for not knowing about their company. NCR Corp rejected me for no reason( :P ). Ramco Systems rejected me for poor AIEEE Rank and SAP Labs for my inconsistent CGPA.
Q: How many levels were there in the selection procedure of this company?
A: 4 Levels:
1. Written Test (includes 10 Aptitude Questions + 30 C/C++ Questions + 3 Programming Questions on Data Structures + 1 Question on DBMS queries).
2,3. 2 Technical Interviews
4. HR Interview
Q: What preparations did you undergo to get through the written rounds?
A: Written Test’s MCQs were easy. Programming questions were of easy level (practiced from Geeksforgeeks.org on Trees and Linked List). DBMS queries from tutorialspoint.com
Q: What preparations did you undergo to get through the GD rounds?
A: Never took part in GD rounds
Q: Any tips or suggestions for the juniors?
A: Concentrate on your CVs, most importantly on your projects and mentioned technical skills. Start practicing coding early (practice a lot on Data Structures). DBMS is essential for any CS core company. If you are not good at coding, pick one of your favorite core subjects and get thorough about that. Try to master that subject.
You will have your placement session throughout the year. Don’t get disappointed if you are not having a break. Wait for the right time and never let your laziness or overconfident overcome you.
PS: Get ready for that ice breaking question: Why do you want to join our company?
All the very best. J
