Round 3

Group Discussion

Group Discussion Topic
Impact of family drama daily soaps (saas bahu serials) on the society.
Interview Experience
In Group Discussion there were 11 people in my group. The topic for the discussion was the “impact of family drama daily soaps (saas bahu serials) on the society”. Almost all of us agreed to the fact that these serials were sending wrong message to the society. They were interested in students who were expressive. 3 people got selected from my group.
Round 4

Technical Interview

Interview Experience
The first round was a technical interview. Questions related to my family and areas of interest were also asked though. Questions related to C++ were asked and the topic of data structure was their main focus. They asked me questions on linked list and other forms of data structure. Finally they asked few general puzzles too. This interview continued for around 20 minutes.
Round 5

HR Interview

Interview Experience
In the HR interview, questions were asked on why they should choose me and why I had opted for Headstrong. They also asked which location I would prefer for the job. They wanted someone who would be comfortable with any location whether it be south or north India. This last interview was small and lasted around 5-10 minutes.
Interview Tips
Preparation of puzzles foe the interview would be beneficial.
Motivation for applying
Most information regarding the company was obtained by attending the pre placement talk. The company did not check much about our knowledge related to the company but were more concerned with our technical knowledge.

Round 1

Test

Interview Experience
Round 1: Online aptitude test-50 marks(65 minutes).3 sections:
1. English-Passage based . Read once with attention and u can answer d questions fairly easily.
2. Quant: basically questions on sets and Venn diagrams. 
3. Data interpretation and few more logical questions were there.
RS Aggarwal-verbal reasoning and quant is sufficient if u practice it well. Search for previous papers of HEADSTRONG on net, (this should actually be done for any company) u will get an idea of d kind of questions that are asked. Don’t stick to a question for long.
Interview Tips
Around 80-85% students cleared it. Its easy to get through but ur score counts a lot.
