    General Tips
    Do’s :<br />
    Apart from all preparation :<br />
    • Take proper sleep whenever given a chance to. Do not skip meals.<br />
    • 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.<br />
    • Take someone to the interviews. He/She will manage your interviews accordingly. It’s also a motivating factor.<br />
    • Always carry a smile when going to an interview. You should not appear stressed.<br />
    <br />
    Don’ts :<br />
    • 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.<br />
    • 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.<br />

Key learning a) Its important to prepare for as many HR questions as possible in advance. The more you prepare the better you will be able to answer even the most unexpected questions. b) Every point on your resume should be elaborated in your mind so that you can speak on about 15-20 minutes on it highlighting specifics of the task, the problems faced, innovations used and results. c) It's important to be relaxed during an interview and treat it as a conversation. Even the most difficult problems can be solved if you keep your cool. d) Read about the company in advance. Especially its culture and values. Identify what the company is looking for. Incorporate it intelligently in the answers that you give.

      General Tips
      Mistakes committed.  <br />
      a) Low level of preparation for some points in resume. Didn't expect interviewer (P&G) to spend 25 min. on the school captain point which was not well prepared.  <br />
      b) Silly mistake while solving Capital One Case study.(Later avoided it by thinking aloud)  <br />
      Keep your level of enthusiasm in the interview high. Companies like students with high levels of energy. Excitement alone about the company can land you a job!!!<br />
      b) Keep two copies of resume, a pen and sheets of blank paper with you for all the interviews. <br />
      c) Dress for the company. Do not overdress. Suits look fine for an IB job but not for a simple technical job. d) Always greet the interviewer in a warm way.

      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 – <br />
        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). <br />
        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. <br />
        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.<br />
        Stay Relaxed. You might have to wait for 2-3 hours for your interview slot.<br />
        <br />
        Don'ts-<br />
        Don’t waste time in the semester. Prepare. <br />
        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.<br />
        Don’t rely heavily on one company. A company might reject you on the basis of a small mistake. Prepare for more than one.<br />

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.

I think I was able to structure the guesstimate well although my final answer was way inaccurate :D .I paused for sometime during my puzzles, but she encouraged me a lot. I don’t think anything else went wrong

          Interview Experience
          The interviewer was an IIT Kanpur alumnus. I was told afterwards that he was the senior most guy present in the interview panel. One of my friends didn't have a good experience with him in round 1, so I was pretty attentive and a little scared too.

          He was fairly pleased with my case-solving in guesstimate. I didn't get a chance to play with numbers. I juststructured the whole thing and he told me to stop me there and then. As far as the second case is concerned I told him about all the competitors and what their revenue model is. I discussed at length about their pricing model. I then compared the USP of NERD magazine and was able to come up with a pricing strategy. I also added that rather than just the magazine I would like to organize some competitions which would be better source of revenue. Again, he told me to stop there and then.Again, my HR questions went pretty well. This person seemed a little hard to impress. But he always said ‘Good’ or ‘Very Good’ after the questions. That gave me a lot of encouragement (I kept on remembering the bad experience of my friend with this interviewer and that gave me the boost that I was doing pretty well). He asked me some questions like ‘What you are saying is contradicting your previous statement’ but Iremained cool and composed and clarified everything. After the cases, he waved me off. His smile told me that I had nailed the interview. I don't think anything went wrong at all. The interview went great. I didn't have to go for 3rd round

              General Tips
              I feel that knowing a senior(who works at EXL) helped. He had come for the interviews. Know what you want beforehand. Your preparation will be better that way. Focus only on 2 areas. Don't try to go for everything. You will end up with nothing. Your resume is a paper telling people who you are and what your interests are. Don't run after anything that comes your way.(Only applicable if interests are not clear) All years Read up on what is happening in the world.1st-3 sems Explore as much as possible. Do random project and random PORs.You will be able to filter what you like.(or you don't) 4th sem Learn something in non civil related that you like and do an intern in that field. If you like civil, pursue a project under a prof.3rd year Choose interesting electives and minors. There are many civil minors that are interesting and have some non-core feel to it (eg TNA)
