          Test Sections
          • Section 1: Technical questions
          • Section 2: Aptitude questions
          Interview Experience
          Online test as the first round, split into technical questions and aptitude questions (20+10). There is an essay writing section there too: "Why GE?", "What are your Goals?" etc. This is followed by a technical interview and then a HR interview.
          Round 2

          Other Interview

          Interview Experience
          A technical interview and then a HR interview. Interviews in our year were done in a couple of days, the HR interview being over the phone. However, the rounds vary from person to person. Though people from the imaging section came to college this time, they were open to taking us for hardware design too. But if you ask for any other kind of work, be prepared to wait. Your application is forwarded through the company and this takes time, a lot of it. There was a second round of interviews I had to take about 2 months after the time they came to college. And by this time, the results of the other people who had applied were already out. So, patience is critical, although if you have been provided with a point of contact within the company, it is all right for you to bug him/her about the status of your application.
          Interview Tips
          What you have to prepare for is the HR round. It might seem trivial, but I have had trouble in specifically these kind of questions. They pose a standard set of questions, so prepare well for them. Try to sit down and prepare an honest answer to each of them: it will help a lot. Using tried and tested phrases and giving the standard replies does nothing for your image: you are just another person in the pack. And from what I found out during placement season, the HRinterviewers have more power than your technical interviewers in pushing your application through.

            Skill Tips
            An intuitive grasp of what happens and why it does is crucial. I wouldn't recommend 'preparation' as such, since there is too much to learn if you want to 'prepare'. Some experience handling electronics is time better spent than poring over books: you can also show you have applied what you learn, and that gives you brownie points in the interview. Developing an ability to solve problems in the situation, and guess estimate the solution from what you know is also very helpful.
            General Tips
            Dress well, more importantly dress comfortably. Formals is not absolutely essential unless you are going to an interview with a business company. It is the T&P which imposes this rather. The feeling of euphoria after placements is unmatched, trust me. But the process itself is tiresome, I had a lot of trouble managing my patience when waiting for communication from the company.
