Interview Process

Round 1

Resume Shortlist

Interview Experience
Resume Shortlist was not stringent to any cg cut off. I think a mixture of good POR's and course work along with atleast one coding work can be impressive.
Interview Tips
Have a CFI project if not done any prior non-core internship.
Round 2

Test

Duration
2 hours Minutes
No. of Questions
not sure questions
Test Sections
  • Section 1: Aptitude + C/ C++/ Java basic questions + english skills for 1 hour
  • Section 2: Coding Questions - 2 for 1 hour
Interview Experience
Each part have time constraint and you can only attempt the next question if you have done the present one. I have not performed that well in the coding questions but fairly well in the first half which put me to the interview round.

Any one coding language can be preferred - C/C++/Java.
Interview Tips
Practice basic questions coding language, English, Aptitude/ Logical Reasoning and Writing Code in the precise order as it can boost your confidence through the test duration,

It is okay if you excel in any one of the two parts.
Round 3

HR Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Tell me about yourself
  • Question 2: Some questions on your hobby
  • Question 3: A qustion on a project mentioned in the resume
  • Question 4: Why finance? Why IT in particualr? What are your future plans
  • Question 5: Do you like to ask me any questions?
Interview Experience
The HR was not very intimidating. I was very calm and presented myself confident and very cheerful which I think impressed him. I answered to the first question very elaborately that it covered most of the other possible questions. It's very crucial to answer it smartly without overselling or underselling yourself. I was being very honest.

I answered in this manner:

- My qualities and work ethics
- What was my passion and what has led me to take interest in IT and finance?
- Why Citicorp? - just a brief line as it wasn't asked directly
- My hobbies and unique talent

He asked what would you choose - finance or IT. Well it seemed tricky as IT work is related to finance in Citicorp. So I answered them that I have interest in Finance of which IT plays a part. So interested in both.

When asked about my project, I answered clearly and related to the profile. No questions were asked further.

After a set of these 4 questions, I was asked if I have some questions. Two questions were popped up in my mind about the proflle nature and the challenges faced by Citicorp macroeconomically.

Interview Tips
It is very important to answer clearly and articulately. Stammering gives a bad impression on you.
Some tricky questions will be asked. It's alright to take some seconds off and asnwer with clear thought.
Show enthusiasm towards the internship. They do not require students with good coding skills so show them that you can grasp anything fast.

When asked about yourself, kindly don't tell the place you are from or your family descriptions as it is absolutely not required by them. They need to know your nature of work and abstract qualities you possess. That's it.



Round 4

HR Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Where are you from?
  • Question 2: Why do you choose chemical engineering? By rank or by passion?
  • Question 3: Why do you want to intern in Citicorp?
  • Question 4: Some more quesions based on your previous answers
Interview Experience
She didn't ask any tricky questions and mostly listened to what I had to say. She wanted to know how much interested I am in this,
Interview Tips
Be very relaxed and ask questions meaningfully.
General Tips
Java is not a pre-requisite to IT in Citicorp.
Motivation for applying
It is a reputed bank in financial sector. The stipend is relatively high compared to other companies.
Funny Moments
I got intimidated by a senior before the interview that I require Java knowledge. So I was very sure that I wouldn't get through. Hence I bacame very calm and took the interview entertainingly.



During the interview, I told the HR that I know little of Java and was willing to learn it. In turn, he answered that it is not at all required. I was dumbstruck ;)

Round 1

Test

Duration
90 Minutes

21 questions
Test Sections
  • Section 1: MCQs - Quant + Programming (questions in C)
  • Section 2: Write code as per question
Interview Experience
The MCQs - Quant part was easy. They had some good questions. It was quite interesting. Programming questions were mostly out of my domain,

The final code writing question was not that tough. We had half an hour to write the code, and I pretty much wrote it till the last minute and got the green tick.
Interview Tips
Go well prepared in C, C++. They asked obscure MCQ questions which most junta doesn't know. Read 'bitwise operators'.

In the last question, we were allowed to write code only in C++/ Java. So, be prepped for that too.

The interviewers were very friendly and helpful throughout.

Since I am from Electrical Engineering background, they didn't ask too tough questions involving DSA.
Interview Tips
They won't ask you any questions that are outside what you've learnt.
All they wanted to see was whether I was good at what I knew or not?

Don't lie and brag about any skills. Under sell and overwhelm.
