Interview Process
Test HR Interview
Round 1

Test

Interview Experience
Aptitude and interview. After test around 60 were shortlisted and of them around 35 were made final offers .
Interview Tips
I had joined TIME classes for preparation of CAT and the guidance and study material provided by them was really good for preparing for the aptitude. After the CAT, TIME held mock GD sessions which were really great and in my opinion everyone should go through these kinds of mock GDs before any actual GD to get an exposure to GD and various kinds of GD topics.
Round 2

HR Interview

Interview Experience
To start with, the interviewer asked me to introduce myself and then they asked questions based on the projects in my resume after these questions they asked me that you are a good civil engineer then why do you want to change your field and come to IT. Some questions based on object oriented programming were asked to test the computer knowledge and they asked me to solve a puzzle also that I don't find worth mentioning here as I think most of us can solve that. Overall the experience of my first job interview was good and I really enjoyed it.
General Tips
Good aptitude and analytical skills and basic knowledge of computer.
