Interview Process
Resume Shortlist Test Group Discussion HR Interview
Round 1

Resume Shortlist

Interview Experience
I believe that the resume is the very crucial since it is the single most important basis for getting shortlisted. It also helps the interviewer know you and form an initial opinion about your strengths. Hence it becomes very important to have a strong, well drafted resume, regardless of the company you are applying to. You should mention all your strong points on your resume. Whether it is academics or some project that you might have undertaken or some other extra-curricular activity, all of them should appear on your resume.

When I prepared my resume, apart from the academic details and projects which form a standard part of the resume, I did make it a point to specify all the noteworthy extra-curricular activities I had under taken. I did provide a very brief description for each of the activities.

When you are applying for different companies with different profiles on offer, apart from a few minor changes, the resume remains more or less the same. I did my internship at BHEL. So whenever I used to apply to a core Electrical Engineering Company, I did mention it in my resume. However for other non technical firms, I didn’t mention it. From my personal experience following key points should be kept in mind while preparing the resume

For a core company (electrical engineering companies in my case) make sure that in your resume you focus on your academic details, projects and internships related to the field of that company (as far as possible).
For other firms such as consultancy firms, focus on your extra-curricular activities.
If it is an IT firm you are applying to, then you should focus on your software skills.
Your resume, should be in line with the post that you are applying for and the work that you would be supposed to do after joining.
Round 2

Test

Interview Experience
The first round was a written test in which all the eligible candidates (as per the eligibility mentioned above) were allowed to appear. The test was held a couple of months prior to the placement season and was very similar to CAT with quantitative, logic based and verbal ability based questions. In fact, it was a bit easier than CAT, so the students who had prepared for CAT found it very easy. The cut off was high I guess. About 100 students appeared for the test, and 31 were shortlisted for the second round of the selection process for ERS profile.

Different companies have different types of written tests. Since I always wanted to go for a consultancy firm, I prepared mainly for the general quantitative aptitude test such companies generally follow. Prior preparation for CAT (entrance test for IIMs) definitely helped a lot in preparation for these tests.

Apart from this, I also revised the basic concepts of electrical engineering from standard textbooks for tests of core Electrical Engineering companies. Some of my friends also helped me in revising basic concepts of C++ for tests of IT companies.
Interview Tips
This is the single most important part of the selection process where many students falter because of lack of preparation. Thus they do not even get a chance of getting interviewed. Practising questions from MBA entrance exams do help in the aptitude tests since most of the aptitude tests have a pattern very similar to these entrance exams.
Round 3

Group Discussion

Interview Experience
The next round was a group activity where the group was given a case. Everyone in the group was supposed to analyze the case and discuss this amongst themselves to reach to a final conclusion. In the case given to our group, a company had to launch one of its new technologies in three different zones. The details about the 3 zones i.e. market share, competition etc. were given in the case. The group had to discuss the three selling strategies mentioned – phased approach, big bang approach and hybrid approach – reach a final conclusion and then the group had to give a short presentation on the same.

I didn’t prepare for Group Activities in particular because according to me it is more of a spontaneous activity. The group is given a topic, which might be completely unexpected at times. You should be able to communicate well and present your point effectively in a group activity. If someone is good at it, then there is no need for any specific preparation for group activities.
Interview Tips
It is important to have good communication skills. One should be able to make his or her point clearly and make sure that others in the group pay attention to the same. The presentation should be good.
Round 4

HR Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Tell us about yourself.
  • Question 2: What do you know about ERS profile?
  • Question 3: Tell us about your internship.
  • Question 4: Why do you want to join Deloitte?
Interview Experience
Thirteen students, who got shortlisted from the group activity, made it to the final interview round. It was a behavioural interview and was a pretty simple one. I prepared for the interviews individually, although I did get a lot of help from my friends. There are a few specific questions which are almost always asked in an interview like:
1) Tell us about yourself
2) About you strengths/weaknesses etc.
Although I didn’t frame the actual answers but I did have the points in my mind which I would speak about during the interview.
I also did a bit of research and homework before going for the interview about what the company does and what it expects from the selected hires.
Interview Tips
For the interview, just be confident. A behavioural interview is easy if you have framed answers to some typical questions or have at least thought of some points for the same.
Skills

Skills Tested

    General Tips
    As I already had in my mind that I wanted to go for Deloitte, I went through their website thoroughly and other sources of internet as well to gain as much knowledge about the company as I can. As I was already preparing for CAT, the written test didn’t require any other specific preparation. The group activity and the interview were quite general and from my point of view, do not require any specific preparation.
    Motivation for applying
    Deloitte offered two job profiles in this year’s placement session – Technology Consulting and Enterprise Risk Services. I believe that knowing the company profile in detail is very necessary for success in an interview.<br />
    <br />
    1) I talked to my seniors (who were working with Deloitte) to get more details about the job profile being offered.<br />
    2) I attended the Pre-Placement Talk given by the company when it visited our campus. Also I went through their website to find out more about Deloitte.<br />
    So, although I was still not quite sure about what would my work exactly involve, but I had a very good idea about the job profiles on offer before going for the selection process.

    Interview Questions
    • Question 1: Asked about basic infrastructure Planning questions
    • Question 2: Why do you think Infrastructure in India is a high growth sector ?
    • Question 3: How much Foreign Direct Investment is coming into India ?
    Interview Experience
    They asked me a lot of questions based on my resume. I had done a lot of projects and courses related to Finance. I infact wanted them to ask me questions related to that as i was very well prepared. I told them about my passion for finance and the director who was from IIM Ahmedabad started asking me questions related to that. That i answered pretty well.
    Interview Tips
    Be good at what you do. Prepare all your resume points in detail. Theres no excuse to that. Doesnt matter if its related to the profile you are getting interviewed for.
    Round 3

    HR Interview

    Interview Questions
    • Question 1: Tell us about yourself
    • Question 2: Why Finance ?
    • Question 3: Why Deloitte and not other consulting firms ?
    • Question 4: Why would you not take up a finance job when that is your passion ?
    • Question 5: Can you tell us more about your background ?
    Interview Experience
    Except the background and about me I was asked more so of why I was not applying for a finance company and why only Deloitte. I was frank and told them that because of the recession ( euro zone debt crisis at that time ) very few companies came on campus. Hence Deloitte. But also explained them that I liked Deloitte Consulting profile as well because of the kind of work profile it offered.
    Interview Tips
    Be honest and clear about what you want. They can easily catch you otherwise if you are faking or not.
    Do not be hesitant to tell them why you really like them - it could be the work profile / money / etc or a combination of these.

    General Tips
    Be calm and Cool ? - No. You cant be i think if you are serious about getting placed. [ I feel ]<br />
    Prepare smartly ! The more the hardwork, higher the chances of getting your dream job. Many think that it just goes waste but I feel that more than the interview and getting a job you develop a lot of skills under that placement pressure and you should be very positive about it. <br />
    <br />
    Many of the people just chill out completely after placements even if they get a job they dont like.<br />
    NEVER GIVE UP ! You spend 70 % of your life at work, hence do not compromise or settle for less. You will regret later on that you did not try enough.  <br />
    <br />
    I did get into JP Morgan - Equity Research after Deloitte :) Its a separate story that I left that company as well in 4 months and started www.AmbitionBox.com :P
    Motivation for applying
    The profile was good. But frankly that time since i was more inclined towards finance I wanted Bombay as my location being the financial capital and the office at 30th Floor excited me :) Also there were a lot of investment banks in the new Indiabulls Office building, I just thought I could apply off campus there and get in. In retrospect all this sounds very immature. Net net it was all worth it to help me decide what i really wanted :)
    Funny Moments
    After being rejected and told over qualified by Credit Suisse and Nomura backing off from placements at IIT Madras because of slot issues I was directly going to sit for UBS Verity.Had prepared the least for this company. Had not changed my resume for the profile it offered. Was not well dressed. ( Not that its VERY important ) Did not prepare anything much. Had given the interview in the most causal way. But against all odds someone had already decided that this was the company i would get placed in - DESTINY ! Felt very strange at that time because had prepared really hard for other companies. <br />
    <br />
    Conclusion - After seeing a lot of my friends getting placed and reading a lot of reviews on AmbitionBox of seniors - 70% of the people get placed in companies they least expect to get into :) <br />
    <br />
    PS: Doesn't mean you stop trying :) Keep trying ! There's immense satisfaction when you get something you truly wanted after a lot of Hard and Smart Work ! <br />
    <br />
    All the best ! Most of the advice we give at AmbitionBox and that you probably get elsewhere are just hints to solve the equation and not the solutions themselves. So make your own recipe for success. <br />
    <br />
    Hope this helps :)

    I was interviewed on-campus at IIM Lucknow for Intern role at Deloitte
    Interview Process
    Case Study Interview Case Study Interview
    Round 1

    Case Study Interview

    Interview Questions
    • Question 1: questions on my hobbies.
    • Question 2: summarise your work ex
    • Question 3: case
    Interview Experience
    You want to setup a sales force team in India and you are a US based Pharma company. what will be your budget. So firstly I asked about the drug which I want to launch in India, generic or patent. Who are my competitors? Then how much I want to invest, do I want to start small or want to be a market leader. Do I want to start from scratch, want to sell license, or want to merge or acquire some Indian based company. Regarding sales force, do I want to build a new one, or tie up with existing companies? Further I also asked about pricing regulations in India, do I have to follow a price cap, if yes then what’s the expected profit. For all these I was asked to take assumptions and move on. Secondly I divided costs into external and internal factors. External factors included (costs related to filing of Patent in Indian market, etc) . Internal costs related to HR costs, Sales rep salary, training, samples and free drugs to doctors, land ,factory setups ( told in more detail)

    further on the above case I was asked to estimate the number of sales rep required to launch the drug. Solution: For this I asked rough estimation of market size in India, and expected market share for the drug. As per the client’s US benchmark, they invest 30% of the revenue on sales so i got the amount they want to invest in sales rep ( let’s assume X). If one sales rep costs Y, therefore we can estimate the number of sales rep required (X/Y).
    Round 2

    Case Study Interview

    Interview Questions
    • Question 1: Case : I am a US based company and I sell 3 products A, B, C (I don’t rem exact name) and I am having losses. I assume the reason for facing losses can be either economic downturn, new competitors, or internal problems in the company. Tell me what is the exact reason
    Interview Experience
    So I started with few general questions to check whether it’s economic downturn or new competitors or internal problems. Then I was provided with data sheet ( Please note: the data mentioned below are just rough numbers to give idea about my case)
    1) As the sales were neither increasing nor decreasing as per figures and not the market size has increase much. So it was not an economic downturn. As the client’s market share has actually increased rather decreasing so it was not competitor’s problem. So I was only left with increase in costs due to which my profits have not increased. Further also checked if I am pricing less as compared to my competitors. So I was asked to calculate the price of company’s products. So as the prices were not changed in 3 years so I have three equations and 3 variables (2400000 = 1000A+ 1500B+ 1200C, 23000000= 1100A+ 1550B+1100 C and 2500000= 1200A+1600B+1250C). After I wrote equations I was asked to stop and further sheets were provided

    In second sheet process diagram was made and small footnotes were given (PLEASE READ FOOTNOTES) So I figured out that process 2(setup2) was 50% time not working which was causing delays in process 3 and process 4, thus increasing costs. Also Setup1 and setup 2 was installed in 2 different time frames and more over they do same work, so there was no requirement of second setup, setup1 can do it ( there was good discussion on this, I don’t remember exactly)
    After this as I figured out that process was not efficient, I was given 2 possible systems (shown below with their sales and cost) and was asked to choose one. Though system 1 seemed to be good with high sales and less cost but after few years profit was declining whereas in system 2 though we were at loss but profit was increasing at a much higher rate. Further I was asked to calculated NPV values ( on which I said I have no idea as I was asked to choose some r value)
    General Tips
    1) Should know about your job ex nicely, each and every detail<br />
    2) Be confident and smile

      Deloitte BUSINESS TECHNICAL ANALYST interview

      Application
      I was interviewed on-campus for BUSINESS TECHNICAL ANALYST role at Deloitte
      Interview Process
      Resume Shortlist Test Group Discussion HR Interview
      Round 1

      Resume Shortlist

      Interview Experience
      I referred some of seniors resume’s for preparing my own resume. Then I prepared a rough draft and mailed it to some of my seniors who did a thorough review of my resume. I received some valuable insights from them and finally I prepared the final draft. While applying in different companies I only altered my “areas of interests”, for instance while applying in core companies I mentioned my areas of interest as the core subjects.
      Round 2

      Test

      Interview Experience
      The first round was the written test. The test was divided into 4 sections. 3 out of these 4 were logical reasoning, quantitative ability and verbal ability. Since I had prepared for CAT, I found the questions slightly simpler as compared to it. The verbal ability section was very easy; the level of this section was just slightly above that of the class 12th English CBSE board exam. The logical reasoning section was again very easy though some of the questions were actually challenging. Around 400 students appeared for the written test. For the next round, the company shortlisted around 55 people for my profile and another 48 for the other profile.
      Round 3

      Group Discussion

      Interview Experience
      The next round was group case study round. The case given to us was about an ABC automobile company who had problems in their distribution network and production line. Their distribution network was clogged up and due to problems in their production line they were not able to come up to the desired output level. The company was also manufacturing products which were quite obsolete and not in great demand among the general public. We were asked to suggest the changes that can be implemented in the production line and the distribution system. We divided the case study into 4 sections. I and my classmate from the mechanical engineering department took up the industrial engineering aspect of the problem and found the solutions for the problem in the distribution network. The others were responsible for suggesting changes that can be brought about in the goods, the goods that can be manufactured and the goods that can be eliminated. We were asked to pen down our business plan on a sheet of paper. After this round around 40 people qualified for the next round.
      Round 4

      HR Interview

      Interview Experience
      The final round was the personal interview round. Like every other interview this interview also began with the interviewer asking me to tell something about myself. This is where I took charge and I knew that my reply to this question would determine the flow of the interview. I told them little about my personality and gave them a brief account of all the campus activities that I was involved in. I also told them about how I organized Thomso (Cultural fest of IIT Roorkee) and the success that the event enjoyed because of my managerial skills. They then posed a question that if I was so very interested in organizing events why did I not opt for an event manager profile in some other company rather than doing a job in a consultancy company. I replied that this experience of organizing various events has taught me how to interact with people, how to convince them and how to get the best out of every individual I work with, I also told them that these are the qualities that generally attributed to a consultant.

      They also asked me another HR question ‘What all tools are required to be successful in consulting sector?’ I replied by stating all the general stuff like enthusiasm and the likes but failed to mention that area/subject matter expertise was also important. This was the final round and finally the company recruited 20 candidates.

        Motivation for applying
        Most of the information regarding the company was obtained by attending the Pre Placement Talk. The company has been visiting the campus for many years and has a good reputation amongst the students.  It will be good if one knows what he actually has to do in the profile offered as it would be an added advantage during the personal interview round.

        Interview Process
        Resume Shortlist Test Group Discussion HR Interview
        Round 1

        Resume Shortlist

        Interview Experience
        I had a standard resume for this company as per our institute placement cell norms.
        I usually changed my “Areas of Interest” as per the company profile. For Deloitte I laid emphasis on my extracurricular activities and feel it is especially beneficial if you highlight points where you have worked in a team, shown leadership or have done something new or out of the box.
        An idea about what work the person has to do for the profile may also seem beneficial.
        Round 2

        Test

        Interview Experience
        I had prepared for CAT (MBA entrance test for IIM’s) and it helped a lot in the written test. It basically helped in clearing tests for Deloitte (as well as ZS Associates). The tests for these companies were conducted by AMCAT (which is a organisation which helps students prepare for CAT). So preparation for CAT would certainly help in clearing the written test for these companies.

        The first round was the written test of 60 minute duration. There were three sections in all; two of those were aptitude and the third was English. Some students faced difficulty because they got a lot of questions from Permutation and Combination. Having prepared for CAT exam earlier I found this written test comparatively easier and no special preparation was required.
        Round 3

        Group Discussion

        Interview Experience
        The second round was a group case study. The candidates were divided into different groups. Each candidate of the group was supposed to play the role of an expert in a particular area. Then a business problem was given to the entire group and 3 minutes were allotted to discuss the problem. The group was supposed to finally come out with a feasible solution after studying the different aspects of the problem.

        The case given to our group was about a medical centre that wanted to convert the patient data into soft copy from the existent hard copy storage including data like X-ray results and so on, and then send this data to the patient over the internet in form of electronic mail. We as an expert panel were expected to find the problems that might be encountered during this process and consequently come out with feasible solutions to tackle the same. A lot of possible issues were discussed – the major ones being that of the financial burden of the entire process, getting contacts of patients who had been treated in the past, the man power required for process and how to dispose off the present hard copies of the data.

        There were 10 people overall in my group out of which 6 qualified for the next round.
        Round 4

        HR Interview

        Interview Experience
        The next round was the personal interview round. They asked me whether I knew C++ and I replied yes. Since I had revised C++ thoroughly, I was confident. One of the questions they asked me was to write a program/algorithm that gives the Fibonacci series as the output. Some HR (Human Resource) questions were also asked like ‘Since you belong to the N.C.R. region would you be able to adjust to living in southern India.’ These questions were mainly aimed to check my interest in the company. The technical questions that I was asked were very simple. They did not have in depth knowledge about the domain of my project and I feel the main aim of asking questions about one’s projects is to check the dedication towards the task in hand.

          General Tips
          If you are interested in working in a sector not related to your core area of study, then this company is a very good choice. A good knowledge of C++ and fluency in speaking English is a must to get selected in Deloitte.
          Motivation for applying
          Most of the information regarding the company was obtained by attending the Pre Placement Talk. The company has been visiting the campus for many years and has a good reputation amongst the students.  It will be good if one knows what actually he has to do in the profile offered as it would be an added advantage during the personal interview round.

          Round 3

          Interview

          Interview Experience
          In the interview, the notes that I made the previous night helped. I was asked some questions like “why the company” “where do you see yourself” etc. to which I knew the answers the company was looking for (inference from their PPT). They were looking for somebody who will stick with their company for two-three years and then wants to pursue an MBA. I gave them the answer they were looking for. There were questions based on my resume as well along with some general questions like “Using your knowledge in CS/IT how do you eliminate hunger in India?” etc. I asked for some time to think whenever I felt the need. I was constantly reminding myself that this was one chance that I could not spurn as I did not have many shortlists over next 4 days (Also, companies were backing out at will). I came out feeling confident. I told one of my friends if I did not get into this company, I might as well give up on my placement that session. Luckily, I got through. I felt so relieved that I danced in my wing. (Something which I haven’t done for my admission into IIMA) The sheer mental pressure in those times is huge in magnitude, I am happy that I got over it in 5 days.
          Interview Tips
          I tried to put down answers on paper, to some standard HR questions, also made notes on the company, what I remember form the PPT, what question should I ask the interviewer etc. It helped a lot!

            General Tips
            Placement Preparation:<br />
            This is the most important phase according to me. Your actual placement will depend on what you do (or don’t do) in this phase. Before you start off, do a realistic analysis of your profile. Identify the sector you would want to get into. Identify the spikes in your profile. Make sure you highlight them properly in your resume e.g., you might be a six pointer but in the sixth semester you might’ve got an eight. Put it there. It is bound to have an impact on the recruiters. Spend a lot of time on resume making because a good resume helps a lot not only in short listing, but also in interviews. People don’t want to look at badly written resume. Try and make company specific resumes! (Yes, it helps!) From a good resume, recruiter can always infer what he can expect. Be specific, crisp and use action verbs for greater impact. You may want to refer to the list of action verbs on the MIT site.<br />
            <br />
            The golden rule for placements according to me is “Information is wealth”. There is a lot of information available on PAS, in the placement guides and other channels. Utilize them properly to understand what companies' offer, what companies look for and what you offer to the companies. Take some time off to go through the feedback on the PAS. Try and preferably go through all of them. This helps you in getting a hang of what all companies might come to recruit. Importantly, you will see some trends in which they recruit e.g., some companies recruit only 9 pointers. (Of course they might drastically change their criteria but not many companies change at a time!)Identify those companies which are likely to recruit you. Try not to miss the PPTs of those companies. When you are attending a PPT it is always helpful if you are attentive. I am not suggesting that you jot down whatever is being said, but make some observations about the company. This helps you to answer the “why do you want to join the company” question.Coming to the actual preparation, one section people often neglect is the HR questions section. Remember, this is the round when a company looks for perfect fits and all the effort you had put to get to that round will go down the drain if you don’t do well here. Most of the times, questions like “Tell me about you” etc seem to be very innocuous but believe me, they aren’t. They are the killer questions which will eliminate people in the last after having put in a lot of effort. Of course preparation for other sections is equally important.<br />
            <br />
            In addition to all this, most important thing is the mental preparation. However good you may be, you might still be rejected by a couple of companies. Don’t get disheartened. Be prepared for the same. I have seen people getting shortlisted right from day 1, finally getting placed well after 15 days. You have to get prepared for the worst, while hoping for the best.

            Interview Questions
            • Question 1: Estimate the number of garbage trucks in Hyderabad
            Interview Experience
            I started with the area of Hyderabad ~600km2. I made assumptions with respect to the area an average garbage truck could cover. Normally garbage trucks collect garbage from across the place and then go to the dumping ground and dump the garbage and then they may make another trip. Let’s say an average garbage truck works for about 8-9 hours and makes 2 trips in a day. And in one trip it can cover 2 km2, and then based on 2 trips a day, it should cover 4 km2. So approximately 150 trucks for households.The interviewer hinted to me that the number seems to be quite less and asked me to try again with some other approach. This time I started with the number of households. So Hyderabad has a population of 4mn and with 4 people per households, we have ~1mn households. Now these households are mostly spread in the form of apartments/ localities, comprising of ~100 Households per locality, giving me 10000 localities. It would take ~1 hour per locality, so an average truck considering it has to dump the garbage as well, should cover maximum 6/7 localities in a day. So there should be ~1500 garbage trucks serving Hyderabad households.The interviewer then questioned me about other factors which would determine the number of trucks. I listed down a few factors like: concentration of households in different areas, location of corporates especially hotels and restaurants, festive or marriage seasons, and distance or proximity to the dumping grounds. Distance was the factor he was mainly looking for.
            Interview Tips
            The interviewer was concentrating more on the approach I was using, rather than the exact numbers. Also, he was looking at how I can think about other factors which could alter the result of guesstimate
