Skill Tips
1. I had done MIT algorithms lectures at the end of my second year and those lectures were very useful at all the stages of my B.Tech. Apart from that I referred “Coding Interview Questions book by Narsimha Karumanchi” for quick revision of OS and DBMS concepts.<br /> 2. The coursera video lectures of Algorithms (part I and II from stanford), Computer Networks and of Databases are equally good and very useful in general for all companies.<br /> 3. For apti preparation I didn’t feel any need of extra preparation.<br /> 4. C-Apti questions are very important as well as coding skills being good in which will get you many early chances of being interviewed and getting a job.<br /> 5. I had looked into puzzles by Shakuntala Devi and the Brain Teasers on careercup.com.<br /> <br /> For me on that day I had five back to back interviews on the D-day of which two were for Futures First and three were for Credit Suisse and the experience was more than rewarding at the end. I started getting call for Futures First interview when I was writing my Credit Suisse written paper and I didn’t know how the day is going to be for me. But believe me when they announce your name in the Rooms of Placement Department, which is the best feeling you can get when someone calls your name.<br />
General Tips
Placement season teaches you lot of things and many life-time experiences and the key thing during placement season is to have patience and wait for your chance. You will get what you is right for you when the right time comes so don’t lose hopes and be consistent. Luck is a big factor in placements and you will definitely have your day.

1. Prepare your resume well for each and every of the points you put there and give more than enough time in writing your resume. The presentation of your resume is equally important as the contents of the resume.

2. Attend the pre-placement talk sincerely for the companies you are interested in and ask questions in during that. It shows you are interested in the company and may help in later stages of your interviews.

3. Your dressing sense in during the PPTs is also noted by the company HR’s.

4. Knowing implementation of what you know is very important as most companies look for implementation and the most important thing during any interview will be your “Approach” towards the question asked as that’s where they judge you.

For CS

1. Be thorough with the concepts which you know and accept readily if you don’t know which is better than them telling you the same.

2. Be honest and know properly whatever you have written in your resume.

3. The HR person who comes for recruitment every year is very experienced person and he keeps a close watch on candidates even outside the interview rooms on the D-Day. Be aware for the same.

Primavera Systems software analyst interview

Application
I was interviewed on-campus for software analyst role at Primavera Systems
Interview Process
Test Technical Interview
Round 1

Test

Test Sections
  • Section 1: Objective (Technical + Aptitude), Common for all Oracle Banches
  • Section 2: Brain storming - Puzzled Questions
  • Section 3: Technical - Short and simple Coding test
Interview Tips
For written tests, they should have more technical knowledge about their fields.
Moreover a regular aptitude test should be their approach.
Round 2

Technical Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Summer training
  • Question 2: Projects Undertaken
  • Question 3: Extra curricular activities
Interview Experience
1st: Technical + HR
2nd: HR round
 Summer training presented me versatile. My internship was not on a subject I am specialized and interested in, but I had no other option, so I completed my task with proper interest and knowledge that helped me to say "Whatever the task might me, I am up for the challenge and to lead it." My projects and internship which I did genuinely, put me in a situation to speak fluently about them, helped me 100%. For me, extra curricular activities helped. Firms don't just want geeks and those with stress issues. They need lively people who can enjoy and manage their work along with their personal issues.
It was rather a short and fun experience of just 25 minutes.
I was straight forward about my dreams, my personality and my technical aspects.
I was not prepared to join the company, and I mentioned it.
I confined my interview to the topics I knew and I did my internship on.
A single puzzling technical question of coding and algorithm was asked with multiple stages in it. It was a new one for me, so I started thinking and explaining whatever approach I am taking. I was exploring the problem and that brought them to notice me.
Though the puzzle was not solved completely, but I was trying and subsequently reaching to a conclusion of whatever I was doing.
Interview Tips
For Technical Interviews,they should try hold the talks to themselves. Like I tried to confine my interview to my Internship subject and whatever I knew. For HR, you should be bold enough to present positive aspects of yours, while duly mentioning that you have weaknesses which you know how to manage.

General Tips
Just keep going with your “never give up” quality and have confidence in yourself well. Even if you do not hold a technical expertise, but you're a learner...then you can surely get into it.Just be yourself, don't try to fake it with things you don't know, but improve your thoughts about job and work. Feeling pressurized might pose you as an unfit candidate for high risk and high quality jobs.
