Round 1

Test Sections
    Interview Experience
    1st test had only mathematical calculations, since it was only 6 minute test so I did not wasted my time in selecting the questions, I went on and solved the first 25 out of 40. 2nd test had math and DI questions for 30 minutes; I tried to do selected questions this time. Preparations for CAT helped me lot in doing this test. The company had an absolute cutoff in both the tests.
    Round 2

    HR Interview

    Interview Questions
      Interview Experience
      “Why trading and not aerospace?” the very first question fired on me, I gave a positive answer stating why I find finance more interesting instead of saying anything negative about aerospace. What is 77^3, 141^2 etc some of the verbal calculative questions asked in between, although these are very uncomfortable questions I tried to kept my composure and gave an approximate answer to these questions which was acceptable. Some simple puzzles were asked. After some time the interviewer started pitching for me and telling me stuffs about the company, this is where I was almost sure of an offer. There was no 2nd of interview for me.

        General Tips
        At the beginning of the 7th sem I had made up my mind that I don’t want to do MS or Phd but I was still confused between MBA and job. So I decided to prepare for both, which later on I realized that there was a lot common in the preparation of the two. After deciding this, the next question that came to my mind was ‘what kind of job I want?’ To answer this question I needed to develop basic market knowledge about the various sectors and the companies in those sectors which I did by regularly updating myself through newspapers, internet, business magazines etc. At least a month before the placements I was sure that I

        would apply only for consulting and finance profiles, since there were more than 5 companies on a single day so having a preference helped me focus better and do well in the interviews.



        Resumes: It is the very first test of your creativity by any company and is equally important like any interview. I tried to add some spikes in my resume which is required for both consultancies as well as finance. I started making my resume in September and after hundreds of changes and feedbacks from the seniors (which is most important) and it took me more than a month, so start with resume as early as possible.



        PPTs: The most important thing that you learn in ppts is the details of the work profile which you won't find anywhere else. It is the best place to get an answer to all the questions in your mind. So I would suggest you to try and attend as many ppts as possible not because of the compulsion in attendance but for its

        benefits. In any ppt make sure that the company tells you the breakup of the compensation package as there are many hidden expenses included in the package.



        Preparation: This is the most important input in getting a good job. This basically includes 3 things,



        Group Discussions: We used to make a group of 8-10 within our department and sometimes in my wing and discussed on any topic for 15-20 minutes. It would be just like a bulla session but in English and an element of formality involved in it. After the GDs the participants gave the feedback to each other which was most important. For GDs try to keep yourself updated with the current affairs coz most of the times the topics are related to recent happenings. And one more thing don’t feel shy or left out, say whatever you want to say even if you think that the discussion is chaotic.



        Case Studies: Make a group of 3-4 people one would be the interviewer, an interviewee and the rest to just watch and would give the feedback at the end. Take up any case from the numerous case books available on the LAN and conduct such sessions. How ever tough or easy the case may be you always learn how to structure the problems and the basic knowledge which is applicable in most of the cases. Do solve lot of puzzles, this will further add to your logical thinking. This can be best done while you go to the canteen every night because a discussion can add a lot dimensions to it.



        Personal Interviews: The basic mantra for a PI is to show a positive body language, be cheerful and speak confidently. This basically involves the HR questions and questions related to the stuffs written in your resume. This round is conducted by every company irrespective of whether it is a core or a non core company. I prepared myself for general questions and also participated in various one on one interviews with my friends, initially I thought that such interviews with friends won’t be a formal one but I was wrong, it helped me a lot later on.



        Workshops: There would be numerous workshops conducted by the companies and the SPO. Don't miss

        out on any of them as it is the most easy and effective way to learn.

        Interview Experience
        The questions were basic but speed was tested throughout the paper. Accuracy matters a lot as many questions were having negative scores fr wrong answers.
        Interview Tips
        Start with a cool mind and just skip anything that even seems to take time; you can come to it afterwards. Answer only if you are damn sure of the solution.

        Interview Tips
        Be Honest. Be yourself. Never try to manipulate in such kind of free going interview, because they already know what you would answer if you were frank enough.

        Interview Experience
        The Stress Interview is really an interview of a lifetime. The interviewer always showed unsatisfactory expressions. Yet he was throwing me with manipulative questions. All I was able to do is bear a shameless smile throughout the interview. Hobbies were also an interesting subject for questioning.
        Interview Tips
        Being honest is necessary, but Diplomacy plays a very huge role. They try to corner you with your own answers. So chose your words carefully. Even humiliation may be used  by them as a weapon. Just stay calm and cool. Be confidant about whatever you say. Confidence is the Key to Performance.

        I did well in speed matth part but i felt I could have done better in analytical aptitude. They have questions like od man out in picture format which i didn't expect.
        Interview Tips
        Practice speed math 1 day before. You can get some tests online (just google). There are cutoffs for each section, so dont neglect any section.
        Ideal time - Speed math 5-7 min

        Interview Experience
        We were asked to take part in trade moghul, Company's trading competition for one week on a crude oil. I have started playing it as it is part of selection process but later i have enjoyed it and took part for almost 6-7 hrs a day.
        Interview Tips
        Just enjoy making profit or loss. The values will be real time but money is not. So play for fun. They take it seriously. They dont mind if you make profit or loss. They jus want to check your patience.
        Round 3

        Interview

        Interview Questions
          Interview Experience
          I have had 4 rounds of interview. First one is rapid round. In this they will ask you questions very fast that you cannot settle and make up your mind and then answer. They ask even normal stuff like capitals of countries, Presidents of countries and some speed math which you have to answer instantly
          2-4 rounds: These 3 rounds are stress rounds where they say you are useless and will not have a career if you join this company and they say you are not good at this and that and try to put you in pressure. In pressure they test how your mind works and how smart you think. For example they ask you to see around in room then change topic and ask you to close eyes and ask how many switches are there in room. They give you some situation and will test you how you behave in those conditions. We all know that no interviewer ,how bad the interview is ,will not say you are not good and will not say you will be a failure. So for all the words they say I was just saying to myself that they are just trying to make me feel the pressure and I have also started to enjoy with them. I would definitely say that this was my most enjoyed interview.
          Interview Tips
          Just be yourself. Dont act and keep saying to yourself that they are just saying bad things to make you feel the pressure. Play trade moghul as it reflects your intrest in trading

          • Section 2: Fill in the blank type questions (calculations)
          Interview Experience
          Logical reasoning questions were pretty simple.

          Calculations were very basic, completely based on BODMAS. (example 91/41 upto 3 significant digits)
          Interview Tips
          The time available for each question is very limited. Try to complete all the logical reasoning questions (these are scoring and less prone to errors).

          • Question 1: Strengths and weakness
          • Question 2: Why do you want to join Futures First ?
          • Question 3: One good reason to select you ?

          • Question 9: Rate yourself in mental math, logical reasoning on the scale of ten.
          • Question 10: Guess Estimate
          Interview Experience
          I had no knowledge of trading. I did not attend the company's Preplacement talk.
          We had a lot of talk on my hobbies and interests and i explained him the reason i wanted to work in futures first. I could not complete the Guess estimate but i explained him the way to arrive at the solution.
          Interview Tips
          The interviewer does not expect you to have a strong knowledge on trading but expects you to have interest in learning new things. Try to explain that you are more interested in learning, you have excelled in areas you're interested in and that you are very excited to work for them. What ever you say, be confident.
          Round 3

          Interview

          Interview Questions
          • Question 1: Three reasons you would not want to join futures first ?
          • Question 2: Why is your CG so low (this will be the same even if your CGPA is 9)
          • Question 3: You are not consistent in your academics. We don't think you can survive in our company ?
          • Question 4: One achievement in your life you are proud of ?
          Interview Experience
          The interviewer tried to bluff me telling that i got very less marks in the qualifying test and was just and the cut off. I was very confident that i would get more than what he was telling, So I said that there might be some error in correction and i would definitely get more than that. The interviewer actually like my confidence and my sincerity. (I rated myself very poor in mental math but i explained that i can calculate very quickly given me a piece of paper). I did not hesitate to tell them that i would leave the company if i don't find the work interesting.
          Interview Tips
          The main aim of this round is to test your breaking point, so if you could stretch you limits here, its very easy to qualify this round. But answer every question logically because there will be a lot of follow up questions.

            Interview Tips
            I don't think there will be such an emphasis about finance in the interview.I had few courses and I initiated the conversations as I had prepared to talk about them.It will be a stress interview and they might test you with puzzles and numbers in the middle of the interview.Be calm,confident and honest.

              Resume Shortlist

              Interview Experience
              I listed down my achievements and key projects undertaken and then prioritized them in order of importance. I read the Be prepared material of batch 2006 and also saw a few resumes of senior students to understand the structure of an ideal resume. I attended pre-placement talks. I got a brief idea of the various profiles the companies offered and the basic knowledge about the companies. I did not talk to anyone about choosing between jobs/companies but was clear of my priorities. I was most inclined towards joining a finance firm, then a core and the least towards a software

                  At 3rd stage a half an hour interview was taken of each candidate. 11 people were selected for the fourth stage. At fourth stage again a 25 minutes interview was taken. Finally 3 people were made final offers. In the first interview I was first asked about the academic projects that I had undertaken. Since I had written about a project Related to foreign exchange I was asked about every minute detail in it and some general economic basics like impact of inflation on interest rates etc. Then I was asked some HR questions such as: Why would you join a finance firm inspite of having a technical background? What do you know about our company? what are your strengths? Then I was given a case study to estimate the number of black cars in Calcutta. If someone wants to appear for this company, what all should he/she ideally prepare? He/she should build his aptitude and good calculation skills. He/she should also be clear about what the company is all about. He/she should be clear about every point written in his/her resume

                    -I was a regular reader of editorials of newspapers like The Hindu, Hindustan Times, Times of India.<br /> I prepared for the CAT exam which was of great use to me in clearing the aptitude tests of various companies. I read the Beprepared material of batch 2006 which helped me to prepare and have the right mindset required for an interview. For test preparation I think practicing the CAT exam based questions individually is of great help to build one’s aptitude for the tests. For GD, preparation in groups with a variety of topics is of great help. For interviews too preparation in groups for different types of HR questions makes one keep a track of how clear his viewpoints are and the regular inputs or feedback from other members improves one’s ability to perform well in an interview.
                    General Tips
                    One must be in an impressive formal attire but also comfortable. In spite of the nervousness inside one must keep calm which ultimately will keep your performance at its peak as excessive zeal may lead one into wrong direction.

                    I have a fetish for numbers. So, rather than a month long preparation, requisite effort was there for quite some time and a brief stint with Vedic Maths formulae sufficed. One can always start with the Vedic Math channels in YouTube

                        The 2nd round was basically, a stress interview. They test you by asking to multiply numbers in your head, in let’s say, 10 seconds. Or by giving you fictional scenarios.
                        Interview Tips
                        I was in touch with our seniors in the company, who had suggested that, a brief idea about trading and markets would help. I have been following Investopedia for quite
                        some months. Also, I have been following YouTube channels of Lex Van Dam et al, to know about high pressured trading environments. Ultimately, they were quite helpful
                        and if you really have interest in knowing these things, you will enjoy the entire prep process

                          General Tips
                          I had no interest for going into any of the Core companies. So, I had made up my mind to go into anything but Core or IT. And after going through Futures First job profile and the reviews of some of our alumni placed in the company, it was one company that I was hoping for. So, yes, I am satisfied.
                          Motivation for applying
                          Getting placed is more luck than anything else. But, a bit of preparation can always come in handy. I would suggest a constant study of the current happenings in the business world. Reading newspapers and books or following blogs can be of great help.For this company in particular, practicing speed maths is a must as some of us faced questions of 3-digit and 2-digit multiplication to be answered without pen and paper within, 10 seconds. Stay calm for interview, because the key, ultimately, is confidence. Just remember, no one gets anything more than one deserves and before the scheduled time. So, deserve, desire and chill.

                              2 stress interviews. There was no HR round as such, but we were given a sheet to fill containing all HR questions prior to the personal interviews. There were interview questions based on the answers I gave in this sheet. Both the interviews were stress interviews. There was no much difference in the two rounds. I had guesstimates, in both rounds. There was also a small session of quant question's.

                              There was a constant smile on my face all through my interview period. I did not loose my confidence levels, even though I had made few mistakes in my interview. All that you have to show them is that you were able to handle pressure and react properly, even in stressful conditions. My scores in both the tests were just decent. I feel, I made it through, just because of my performance in both the interviews.

                              Core or Non-core you need to have basic fundaes regarding the other. You never know where you gonna end up.

                              I started my core preparation, one n half month before the placement season.Starting the preparation earlier could've brought NO change in my case but it would surely be helpful.



                              There was no preparation for non-core in particular. I went through thebasics of trading (required for FUTURES FIRST) just 2 days before the interview.



                              I went through the GATE book for my core preparation. I prepared basic subjects in every area i.e.; design, manufacturing and thermal. I studied chapters like TD, SOM from GATE book, and referred kalpakjian for

                              manufacturing.



                              Even if you are aspiring for one among the core or the non-core job, you need to have basic fundaes regarding the other. You never know, where you gonna end up.
