If you have good rank in online coding competition, do mention it in CV.Most of the students think that GS asks only probability-puzzles. They did not asked me any question on probability or puzzle. Everything they asked was based on Algorithms problems and Operating system. I think it depends on team for which they are hiring. Most important point is don’t lose hope because you have low CPI or you are not good at something. Keep Operating systems fundamental concepts strong.

Interview Experience
Time management is very important to clear the aptitude test. Besides this a lot of practice is also very important.  This round is the major filteration round. Though each round is a major filteration round cuz NTT DATA is not a bulk recruiter like cts, infy etc. Almost 2-3 thousand students were there for this round from 6 different colleges and only 100 of them were selected.

Round 2

Group Discussion

Group Discussion Topic
Technology-a boon or bane
Interview Experience
There were many panels and each panel had 10-12 students. The H.r first decided some other topic but when he asked wether everybody is aware of the topic ..there were few who didn't know about it. .so he picked up another topic. Fortunately he asked me to start with the discussion.  Always try to be the one to break the ice.

Do fill that form without fail. If it is blank then even if u go to the hr round he will reject you.

Interview Experience
Resume is the most important part of your whole placement process. Your resume reflects your whole profile, what you are. So, we had to do that properly. Main thing is the format of the resume. For getting the proper format itself we had to go through a lot, but our staffs do guide us so that's not a problem.
Interview Tips
Stick to the proper and latest format and make sure your resume shouldn't be more than 2 pages, that's ideal for a fresher. Write only those points that are valid and if any question asked related to that, you can answer.

Round 3

HR Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Questions vary from HR to HR
Interview Experience
I had a very tough experience. Since I'm from Biotechnology department, I was asked questions like why do I want to work in an IT company. They were actually testing my patience and I got through it. Your HR interview depends on your HR itself, even the time limit. My interview went for almost half an hour, but for few it got over even in 10-15 mins, so it depends.
Interview Tips
Just be confident. Presentation is very important. Present yourself in a confident manner and be calm and patience. You should have good communication skill.

General Tips
Be confident and patient. Make sure you choose the proper job for yourself and have interest in that field. You will get through it. Placement is not that tough as you think. Just have confidence in yourself and you will get it. All the best.
Motivation for applying
I have always wanted to go in this and Infosys is considered as one the top IT companies in India and more over they offer you the best training. An infocician is highly recognised outside. Last but not the least, you have the biggest and the best campus for Infosys.
Funny Moments
Nothing as such, but I had really a funny HR round. For half an hour he kept Me asking the same question just to check my patience level. We had a great time during the placement classes. All the staffs were very friendly and interactive.
