    Round 1

    Group Discussion

    Group Discussion Topic
    Is the advent of social media forums, like Facebook and Twitter, a boon or a bane?
    Interview Experience
    The person should be a team player, should have good interpersonal skills, and should have good leadership qualities to control the flow of the discussion. Being a good conflict manager also helps.
    Round 2

    Other Interview

    Interview Questions
    • Question 1: "If an egg is thrown from a 1000 storeyed building, determine from what minimum floor it should be thrown for it to crack.”
    • Question 2: "How many tennis balls can fill INS Vikrant?”
    Interview Experience
    Puzzle solving type question was asked. For first question I solved it using Binary Sorting Method. Basically, throw the egg from 500th floor. If it doesn’t crack then go to 750th floor, if it cracks then go to 250th floor. And continue. (Egg is quite strong of course). And for second, I used volume of each ball and void fraction. They see your approach rather than the numbers.
    Round 3

    HR Interview

    Interview Questions
    • Question 1: “What do you expect to be doing at the company?”
    • Question 2: “What do you expect yourself to be doing 5 years down the line?” Be honest.

      Round 1

      Resume Shortlist

      Interview Experience
      Overall strength of the profile was assessed. Not much emphasis was put on CPI.
      Interview Tips
      Having an experience in finance is a plus.
      Round 2

      Stress Interview

      Interview Experience
      Lot of questions were asked on resume, work done in general, questions on answers I was giving.
      Interview Tips
      I don't think any specific preparation can be done for this kind of interview. Being confident about your answer is the only way to crack this kind of interview. Questions as varied as 'Why Steve Jobs is cooler than Bill Gates' or 'What's the capital of Uganda' were asked, because my profile/answer had such references.
      Don't bullshit, don't tremble and you will good to go!
      Round 3

      Technical Interview

      Interview Experience
      Since we are from Technical institute and not a finance institute, interviewers didn't expect much from us. Through questions, they were judging our motivation towards work. Questions like why finance, why Credit Suisse etc. were asked to see general motivation levels towards finance.

          Other Interview

          Interview Experience
          This was the best round! The director took my interview. It eventually got converted into a technical round. He asked me almost the same questions about .Net. Then he asked me an easy puzzle. He asked me why I chose EXTC(because my resume is full of IT projects and achievements). I was quite honest to tell that I did a mistake while filling the form! And there were a couple of questions which I answered honestly which I guess he liked. So I think it is advisable to be true and honest. Then I was asked whether I have any questions. I asked about his career path. We spent more than half an hour discussing about his career path, he gave a lot of advice as well.

                General Tips
                Resume should be true not enticing. A catchy project title may get you an interview but the basics will get you the job. Good communication skills never desert you in times of need unlike your technical skills. Hone it and you'll go places.

                It was pretty standard according to me. Very helpful panel. Again speaking well helps.
