Round 1

### Test

Interview Experience
It was not that difficult and so the cut offs were high. I started the  quant preparation from RS Agarwal (found it too repetitive so stopped  midway) and started with Arun Sharma(first 2 levels of few important  topics like logical reasoning and statistics).Always target to be in the top  so that you have your interviews early because last year the hiring team were in a hurry and so they rushed with the interviews of later part students. Few people call these LUCK FACTORs.
Interview Tips
Remember the imp. topics would be Probability, Statistics ,Work-Time.

### Puzzle Interview

Interview Experience
This one was with a very cool person who continuously kept on offering me Oreo biscuits  This round had to do with puzzles which you will find in How to Ace the BrainTeaser (I don’t recollect which were the puzzles). I could answer 3 of the 5 asked. Then he moved to C programming. Asked me to write code to print few patterns , optimize them further and that was it. Took hardly 20 minutes for this round.
Round 4

### HR Interview

Interview Questions
• Question 1: INTERVIEW WITH THE DIRECTOR
Interview Experience
He started with questions like Why Data analytics ? Where could this field be used ?(almost everywhere-just for facts : almost every top IT firm especially the banking firms are having a data analytics team) We had discussions on different topics that he raised. One of them which I remember is: Suppose one of the hospitals in your city has been having an increasing number of patients, then please quote the possible factors leading to the ill-health of the citizens. How to ease the different issues in medical field using data analysis? It was just a discussion and I was quite sure that he liked my points.I also asked him about how to utilize this field of data analysis to improve the current business markets of India and how differently did countries like USA used data for business than in INDIA. Overall this was an interactive session. He kept me busy and I also did keep him busy answering my questions. This might have lasted for 40 minutes and then it was all over

General Tips
Do’s :<br />
• PREPARE FOR APTITUDE TESTS. Many of us believe that our profile will lead us getting <br />
shortlisted on resume basis. That may be true, but I have not seen a process as random as <br />
placements. It might happen that you are getting closely rejected in 3-4 firms for which you have <br />
prepared. In such a case, having a good aptitude will give you more no. of shortlists, which will give <br />
you a psychological security to fall back. APTITUDE PREPARATION IS BORING, so you may start it <br />
and then leave it. Don’t do it. It is the only thing that is going to be with you in case something <br />
unexpected happens.<br />
• Be prepared for random and unexpected events like unexpected shortlisting results, irregularities in interview procedures etc.<br />
• Prepare in a group, and help each other. The entire placement preparation phase is very taxing, <br />
and support from people around you helps.<br />
<br />
Dont’s :<br />
• Don’t leave things for the end.<br />
• Don’t underestimate yourself. Don’t overestimate yourself too.<br />
• Don’t have pre-conceived notions about anything: no. of people a company is going to hire, who is <br />
better than you, who is worse than you etc. Let the company decide what they want.<br />
<br />
Final Tips :<br />
• Prioritize the sectors and analyse your chances.<br />
• Don’t keep too high or too low expectations from yourself.<br />
• PREPARE APTITUDE. If you don’t get placed in big firms, aptitude is your only fall back.<br />
• Be prepared for unexpected outcomes.<br />
• Trust yourself for what you know, because there are a lot of things and you cant know everything. <br />
The interview is driven by what you write on your resume. Know what you write. <br />
• In all preparation aspects, one never gets a feeling of satisfaction. Due to paucity of time and so <br />
much pressure around, we are unable to do things as per our expectations. So don’t worry too <br />
much. Give ample time to things, but don’t overdo them.<br />
• Go to the interview empty-headed. Thinking too much about things makes you feel nervous. An empty mind works most efficiently.

Round 1

### Test

Interview Experience
3 sections - Quant, Verbal and Logical Reasoning.No sectional time limit and sections could be attempted in any order. However, they might have section-wise cut-offs (not sure) and so each section must be given importance. It is a speed based test. Level of difficulty is easy to moderate
Interview Tips
you need to be quick. Do not waste too much time on any question. All questions contain equal marks. You can come back to the remaining questions later.Try maximizing your score in the apti. A lot of preference is given to the high scorers of the apti.
Round 2

### Other Interview

Interview Experience
It started with a brief introduction-Tell us about yourself. Till the time you answer, one panellist goes through your resume.Be thorough with everything you write in your resume. Do not write fake stuff, they question you on anything that you have written.They asked me about everything- projects, seminar topic, languages mentioned, extra-curricular activities A lot of SQL questions were asked. They ask concepts, queries, syntax. The had questioned me a lot on JOINS.
Interview Tips
Support everything you say with an example. (eg. if u say you have leadership qualities, give an example of when you have been a leader).If you don’t know an answer, tell it to them honestly. Don’t try to fool them.
Round 3

### Technical Interview

Interview Experience
Standard puzzles that you normally prepare for interviews were asked. Do not give away the answer immediately as if u know it by heart. Think aloud and explain them every step. It does not matter even if the final answer is wrong, the approach is important. In my case, I wasn’t prepared with the puzzle I was asked so I explained it to them from myperspective. Even though the final answer was wrong, the approach was correct so they qualified me for the next round. Also, they smartly try to confuse you. So remain confident in what you say. Do not argue if you are very confident, explain it to them politely. In the tech part of the interview, basic java/c/c++ questions wereasked. (what is object oriented programming? What is inheritance?
Round 4

### HR Interview

Interview Experience
Be prepared with all sorts of HR questions- strengths, weaknesses, happiest moment, proudest moment etc). Why EXL? One Fermi question was asked in this round. Again here, the approach is important, not the final answer. Beprepared with a question to ask at the end of the interview- it could be abt the company/ data analytics or anything. That shows your interest in the job

Interview Experience
The third round started off with regular HR questions. After that, I was asked a guesstimation cum case study question about the price of an English newspaper in Mangalore given its targeted profit and also info was provided on costs of various logistics. Various costs had to be considered and English-reading population of Mangalore had to be guesstimated. After this, I was asked another puzzle, difficult compared to previous ones, solving which seems to have sealed the deal.

Skill Tips
The preparation stage was exhausting as one had to go through company profile, brush up Apti skills the night before etc. etc. depending on individual way of preparation. The first and foremost challenge is to go through Apti rounds coz that is where maximum elimination happens and generally, lot of people in NITK are pretty good at solving Apti questions accurately and quickly. Once, done with Apti, it all depends on how you express yourself at the interview and prove your knowledge and depth at things that you say you are good at.<br /> <br /> In Analytical prepare Probability, Puzzles based questions

### Case Study Interview

Interview Questions
• Question 1: If your friends wants to open up a barber shop in the area you live, what are the prospects?
Interview Experience
The panel was of one person. It lasted for 20 minutes. He asked the place I belonged too. I answered Delhi and then he went straight on to the case that if my friends wants to open up a barber shop in the area I live, what are the prospects. It was pretty open ended and could be taken anywhere. Was trying to see if I can bring in all factors or not. Then regarding one of the competitions I participated in, he asked me to list three and just 3 factors which can summarize my solutions. This king of bullet-ed answering is generally expected from consultants and maybe that’s why he asked such a question.
Round 4

### Stress Interview

Interview Questions
• Question 1: A general puzzle question
Interview Experience
The panel was of one person. He asked me a puzzle and said if I know it already I should tell him. I didn’t know it so he proceeded. Then he went out of the room saying he doesn’t want an answer, he just wants to discuss the puzzle with me and will be back in 5 mins. He came 5 mins later and started circling around me in the interview room and asked what I had to say regarding the question. I told him what I could figure out and then he started helping me in where I was stuck. He constantly kept circling around me. Probably was trying to build up stress. Finally together we arrived at the answer and he was happy after that and let me go.

Skill Tips
If you have done some data processing project before, that gives something to talk about in your interview.
General Tips
1. Keep yourself calm in the interview even if you don’t know something. Smile and say that you don’t know is the best way.<br />
2. Stress interviews might be there, you panic and you are out. That’s something not expected from you under pressure.<br />
3. Participating in competitions held at the time of placements is a good idea to know about the company as well about your preference regarding the company. The problem statements are a good insight into the actual problems companies deal with.<br />
4. Be focused on the kind of companies you want to go for. Even at the stage of application, it's good to remove some companies from your wishlist based on your interest and capability to avoid confusion and disappointment in the end.
