Round 4

### HR Interview

Interview Experience
HR/Attribute Interview: There were 3 Interviewers but it was a cake walk.
In my case, as I entered the room they said that this is not an interview, no questions asked here would have a correct/wrong answer. Its a normal chat, so be relaxed. Then they asked me a few questions like:
If I am ready to relocate anywhere in India or Outside upon company needs.
If I am ready to accept a project in Java ,if Sapient had trained you in DotNet earlier.
Why I want to join Sapient.
My Expectations from Sapient.
What is Counter Strike. ( I mentioned winning a couple of gaming events in my Resume)
What is Trading/Stocks/Exchange. (I had shown my interest in these things by mentioning the development of DalalStreet website by me)
What are you proud of apart from your website DalalStreet. and a few more..
Interview Tips
Key : Just be yourself and be Confident in whatever you say. Show your eagerness to learn things (even if you don't want to tongue emoticon ). If you don't know anything, Confidently speak up you don't know. They hardly care, they only see if you are willing to learn.Also, I would add here that SGM is majorly into developing Trading application. SGM - GlobalMarketInstitute would provide you with 6 months of training in technology(Java/DotNet) and Finance(Share/Exchange/Equities etc), which would be a great experience. Hence a knowledge and interest in Share Trading stuff is highly appreciated if you plan to grow your career in Sapient Global Markets.Sapient is not difficult to crack, difficult is to crack it going to Mesra. I am trying to get Sapient directly to Patna for 2010 batch so that we can have a good bunch of BIT-P mates here.
All the best! Cya many of you Soon smile emoticonFor any further details, Contact me at: akhilnaredi@facebook.com
