    Interview Tips
    One thing that will help in a GD especially when you are not sure about the topic like my case is to listen patiently to others so that you get an idea as to what the topic is exactly about. A strict no to cutting on someone when he/she is making a point and shouting in a loud tone. Both these indicate that you are not fit to be in a team and you are slightly dominating types respectively

          Resume Shortlist Test HR Interview
          Round 1

          Resume Shortlist

          Interview Experience
          I prepared resume keeping in mind the areas of interest that would suit the company’s requirements. The companies that recruit students from all departments usually tend to prefer students having interests in general management/economics related subjects. I knew about this and while applying to non-core companies I specified my areas of interest as these subjects.
          Round 2

          Test

          No. of Questions
          120 questions
          Interview Experience
          The first round in Flipkart was the written test. In the test there were about 120 questions asked. The paper was similar to the CAT paper. The paper comprised of reading comprehension, verbal ability, maths, quantitative aptitude and data interpretation. The questions were pretty simple, however the time constraint proved to be a problem. I qualified for the next round.
          Round 3

          HR Interview

          Interview Questions
          • Question 1: Tell me about yourself.
          • Question 2: What are your strengths and weaknesses?
          • Question 3: How are you working in order to improve upon your weaknesses?
          Interview Experience
          This interview was the HR interview. The company had arrived in the campus on the 2nd or the 3rd day of the recruitment season hence I was not at all prepared for the interview. Whatever answers that I gave during the interviews were all spontaneous. The interviewer soon realized that I had come unprepared for the interview and ended the interview very soon. I did not get selected but I got a feel of the kind of questions asked in these interviews.

            Motivation for applying
            Flipkart came for placements for the very first time. I had applied for the Management Trainee profile. They were looking for people who had dynamic personality, good communication skills and a good overall profile. I had attended the PPT (pre-placement talk) held by the company and that is where I gained knowledge about the company’s profile.

            Duration

            Group Discussion Topic
            FDI in Indian Economy
            Interview Experience
            The topic will be relevant to the times and you will have
            about 2 minutes of speaking time, in total, if you're lucky. Make that count.
            The GD topic was "FDI in Indian Economy". You could take it in a positive or negative stride. However, the stand had to be backed up by solid facts and emphatic statements. Some keywords were, loss of jobs(-), R&D(+), corruption and red tapism(-), higher prices for raw materials(+) etc.
            Interview Tips
            GDs have a tendency to become a shouting match, the end result in such cases is the entire group getting rejected. If however, it does become a slugfest, the better option is to calm the offended party by playing the
            moderator. The objective of any healthy group discussion is listening to everybody's opinion and offering arguments or counter arguments till most of the people are convinced and find a common ground. Opening
            the GD can fetch you important points but do so only if you are immensely confident about what you are going to say. There are numerous sites/blogs out there which can help you with the nuances of a GD, but nothing beats practise and mock runs.
            Round 3

            Interview

            Interview Experience
            Personal Interviews(10-30 min)- If you've sufficiently impressed the interviewer during the interview process, it'll be a breeze. If you've left him on the fence, he'll grill you enough till he reaches a decision.
            Know your CV inside out, rehearse the questions with a friend, attend workshops organised by the Placement Office. The interviewer has the right to question ANYTHING(hobbies/languages/extra currics)
            you put on your CV.

Speak all that comes to your head, and vocally sift through them to get the logical and pursue-able approaches. The interviewer should get a complete idea of your analytical approach.

                Interview Experience

                future goals, my strength and weaknesses etc. I was fully prepared for them and was very confident. Finally they offered me the job. The important point here was that one must be very much sure about the points written on his resume and should be to speak for 1-2 minutes about each sentence if asked for.

                  General Tips
                  Learnt from seniors and alumni what companies from different sector (Consulting, finance, core etc) looks for and prepared my resume accordingly. This also helped me to realize that my profile was weak for finance sector which requires a lot of preparation and hence I was less focused on this sector. Next I started preparing for aptitude test and practiced with the Career Launcher CAT test material (any coaching institute material would suffice). Next I started preparing for case studies through various books listed on SPO’s website. With the help of friends/wingmates I practiced different types of case studies in a proper interview like environment. Newspaper (economic times, hindu) reading were also an important part of my preparations, they kept me inform on various issues and they also gave me an idea of facts and figures essential for consulting firms. At the same time I also started preparing for HR interviews. After the results of various companies aptitude test were declared I fine tuned my preparations accordingly.
