            First round was online technical aptitude round. Around 60 students were shortlisted for interviews. Two rounds of interviews followed which revolves mostly around the concepts of DBMS, programming, logical reasoning and cloud computing(no idea why?). Only 12 were selected for second interview round out of which they selected only 5.

            Skill Tips
            DSA, OS, DBMS, C, JAVA, computer networks and puzzles are the most frequent things interviewers ask (in this order preference as well).<br /> Forouzan for computer networks.Prefer online resources for preparation of C such as tutorialspoint, etc. Test your C skills by yeshwant kanetkar will also help you. For java, programmerinterview.com will help you prepare.

            • Coding Interview Questions : Narasimha Karumanchi,

            General Tips
            Set your goals and sit for only those type of companies which match your aspirations.

            Please do attend their PPTs as they can be very helpful in the interviews. Sometimes rejections happen only becuse we havn't attended their PPT. Try to cover atleast the basics of each topic that i told above. Be thorough with your concepts and speak confidently over there. Be strong in DSA, OS and one programming language especially.

            Also prepare well for HR round as they can be really screwing as well. Cover topics like strengths/weaknesses, why you want to join their company, higher education(say no always) and reason for not going for it, why should they hire you, etc.

            Do not panic, just always stay calm. Also listen carefully and with whole concentration to what they say. Always be patient, you will get a good company.

            Also keep practicing your concepts even after you get placed. You will thank me later for this last point.

                General Tips
                Apart from algorithms and data structures, you should also know the basics of DBMS (SQL queries, Schema, ER diagram) and Software Engineering (optional, but helpful).

                For server tech, knowledge of OS concepts is necessary.

                The overall process went quite smoothly. The interviewers were very cooperative. My first interview was at 11:30 am, second at 5:30 pm and third at 9:30 am on the next day. So I got more than enough time to relax and prepare between the interviews.

                Technical Interview

                Interview Questions
                  Interview Experience
                  Stage 1: Technical InterviewIt’s a technical round, and they test you on your basic programming skills. Also they look at how the students think when he’s given a real world problem to solve logically. Basic programming skills. Write simple functions to accomplish small tasks (e.g. Fibonacci series etc.) Do not make any mistake in your program. One mistake and you may not get another chance. They give you sufficient time to double check whether your program is complete and correct. Give special emphasis on boundary conditions. 
                  Stage 2: Technical Interview
                  I, being a Masters student, was asked me about my Masters project. This was followed by some difficult programming questions, in the sense that they were tougher than the previous round. They also threw some puzzles in between. Programming skills and problem solving skills are required in this round. You should also know about your projects. Know your project well, they may go down to nitty-gritty details of the project. They also see your problem solving skills, how you are trying to solve the problem etc. Always keep talking to the interviewer, and never assume anything about the problem, if you have any confusion ask the interviewer (This is required in every round of the interview).
                  Stage 3: Technical Interview
                  Again I was asked about the Masters project, but this time, they changed the scenario of the project. They asked how would I go about my project if the environment where my project applies is changed, i.e. the problem is same but the domain of the problem is changed. I was asked about real world problems as well. They are basically looking for your problem solving skill here, how your mind works and how you tackle the problems that are thrown at you. Always talk to the interviewer if you have difficulty in understanding the questions.

                    Interview Tips
                    Don’t mention your plans for future studies if any.

                      CGPA of 7.5 or more necessary.

                      Projects and internships matter a lot. Students should be well versed with their projects (B. Tech, M. Tech and all those that are applicable and appear in one’s resume).

                      Algorithms, data structures and programming in any language you are comfortable with. These are very much essential. These get most of the students through. Anything in addition to these is always good.

                              They are mainly looking for students who have good programming skills.

A good understanding of object oriented programming, operating systems, data structures and algorithm will help the student for the written test and interview.It was an online test held by some third party and contained a lot sections and subsections. It was not very tough but you have to be very quick at problem solving. Questions were based on operating systems, data structures, algorithm design, C/C++ programming, basics of Java and object oriented concepts, logical reasoning and quantitative aptitude; there were 5-6 questions on SQL too.

                                    Knowledge of C programming is a must. Apart from this, if somebody knows C++/Java, he/she will have an extra edge. As Oracle is working on data processing in their app development. if the student has a basic understanding of SQL and HTML, it will be an advantage although it is not mandatory.

                                    Try to crack the interview. A C programming pdf is available for free, which contains a collection of almost all types of programming problems which are asked in interviews. Apart from this, try to practice numerous questions related to aptitude.

                                    • Question 7: Do you have any questions?
                                    Interview Experience
                                    The interviewer also gave some situations and asked how would I respond and solve those .
                                    Many general technical questions were asked while he read my resume eg. What is VHDL, VLSI, why do we go for Radio communication, Microwave communication, What is a cell phone technically,etc., 
                                    The interview went for around 35 minutes, and the interviewer wanted me to add many details to my answers.
                                    Interview Tips
                                    Be prepared with solid diplomatic answers for HR questions like What are your positive/negative aspects, Why should I hire you, Situation based questions, etc., Speak English fluently and it really mattered in my interview .
                                    When asked about your further studies, reply in a sort of answer like you were not thinking of further studies right then and you wanted challenging work.

                                                  Be confident in your answers. Your personality is the first thing they try to assess and if you can come across as someone who is confident in his abilities, you immediately gain a head-start.<br /> Overall, after observing other interview processes, I would have to say that my placement experience was relatively tension free. The interviewers did a great job in helping me relax and I don't really remember ever being stressed out during any of the rounds.

                                                  Prepare for general Apti and C-Apti questions beforehand. It's a very under rated advice.

                                                  The job profile offered to me was mainly financial. Some of the questions one should make sure to ask the interviewers is a detailed interpretation of what your job may entail and the various intricacies like the city where you will probably be working, the training period etc are must asked question.
