Interview Tips
For design: Mainly FEA in interview in depth knowledge is required, through with all aspect of projects
Core: went through all books again. Read summery of topics, went through GATE/IES materials in LAN. Projects All reports, PPts.
In depth knowledge, through with your projects and whatever you write in resume. Resume is one of the key things. if not in shortlisting then at least in final interview it will matter a lot. Take help from everyone while writing resume. Take feedback from maximum people all around you. Practice a lot it will boos your confidence. Finally all comes down to your confidence and how you perform in interview.

I was very frank, straight forward and direct. There was a young lady and I was very energetic, talkative and funny, made her laugh, created positive environment.
Interview Tips
I was focused on Tata motors that day assuming that Tata interview will be resume based. GE interviews are generally very tech based and need to be technically very sound. I had no time to do that.
Mock interviews with friends helps
General Tips
Dont be stressed, chill out. Before interview have proper food/water and most importantly stay in chilled out group of people. Know about the company you are sitting for. Get to know beforehand what they are looking for and then sell yourself in that way. Its all about marketing yourself by projecting your good points with respect to their requirements.

Interview Process
Test Other Interview
Round 1

Test

No. of Questions
20+10 questions
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.
Skills

Skills Tested

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.
