General Tips
Do’s :

Apart from all preparation :

• Take proper sleep whenever given a chance to. Do not skip meals.

• Prepare about the company in advance, last minute preparation might lead to a panic situation. Ask your friends (not sitting in placements) to help you prepare.

• Take someone to the interviews. He/She will manage your interviews accordingly. It’s also a motivating factor.

• Always carry a smile when going to an interview. You should not appear stressed.



Don’ts :

• Don’t try to delay things. Prepare a timeline for preparation. Don’t accumulate things post end sem, because you will have to appear for a lot of tests after that. Hence you get limited time for preparation.

• Don’t be in a false assumption that if you possess a strong profile (PORs, Extra currics etc.) you will make it through the interviews. It can only help you fetch an interview. You have to work hard to clear that interview.

Round 1

stress interview

Interview Experience
During EXL, the first interview was a totally stressful one. The interviewer was interrupting me all the time and countering me when I was answering him. Then he gave me a puzzle, which seemed fairly easy to me. But as I started on the puzzle, he started asking me about my hobbies to interrupt me again. I patiently answered the question and then solved the puzzle. He gave me 2 more puzzles, which again I was able to solve. Then, he asked me to give an approach for a guess estimate, which I was able to do easily. My preparation on Cases, Puzzles and Guesstimates was fairly low as compared to others. But I was able to solve them because I was very relaxed in the interview.
Interview Tips
Keeping calm is imperative.
Round 2

HR interview

Interview Experience
The second round was a complete HR interview. All the questions were either from my resume or about my interest in EXL. Once, he was through with them, he asked me a puzzle which I’d never heard before. But I was able to solve it with a small hint from the interviewer.
Interview Tips
It is important to think loud and let the interviewer know what is going through your mind.

General Tips
Do’s –

Manage Time well, try to attend all classes so that you don’t have to study too much before the exams (or simply choose such courses).

Try to keep your personal database of which companies you’ve applied for, which day are they coming and what your status of preparation for them is etc.

If you have more than 1 interview in a slot, try to take a friend along with you who can attend your calls when you’re in an interview. Even if you have 1 interview, still I’d recommend taking a friend along with you. Talking with a friend always eases pressure.

Stay Relaxed. You might have to wait for 2-3 hours for your interview slot.



Don'ts-

Don’t waste time in the semester. Prepare.

Don’t get nervous in the interview. You might not be able to solve a puzzle or a case if you are nervous. Try to be as normal as you can be.

Don’t rely heavily on one company. A company might reject you on the basis of a small mistake. Prepare for more than one.

Population of India 1.2 bn, Source: Census report 2%) and he also kept questioning my approach and made me do the same guesstimate by three approach. After that he asked few puzzles which were simple and I was able to solve them.
