Interview Process
Resume Shortlist Group Discussion Technical + HR Interview
Round 1

Resume Shortlist

Interview Experience
They have shortlisted around 60 members from all the applications they have got. I think there was a CGPA cut-off of 7.5. Try maintaining your CGPA above 8 if you are aiming for a core company.
Interview Tips
This is the most important step in the placement process. A resume is something that gets you to an interview. Many tend to neglect this and start preparing resume 1 week or 10 days before the deadline. I started preparing my resume around 1 month before which would give you time to get it reviewed by the seniors. Ideal time I would say for starting off would be mid-July. Be prepared to defend whatever you write on your resume. And this doesn't mean that you can fake on your resume.
Round 2

Group Discussion

Group Discussion Topic
Demonetization - It's effects on corporate world
Interview Experience
We were given a time of 2min to think over the topic and prepare notes. We all had a good discussion and successfully we were able to conclude at the end of 10min. I didn't start the GD neither did I conclude it. I have raised a few valid arguments and more importantly was able to drive the group. Also, I gave a chance to one of the non-speakers in our group.
Interview Tips
Be aware of current affairs. Concentrate on their implications rather than what is happening which gives you a good insight into the issues. Stick to basic ground rules of a GD - No heated arguments, never interrupt others and drive the discussion towards a conclusion. There is no such rule like you have to start or conclude a GD to get shortlisted for the next round. Try to be actively involved in the discussion throughout. If you do not know much about the topic, wait till others speak and try drawing some points which you can put forward.
Round 3

Technical + HR Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Tell us about yourself
  • Question 2: What are your strengths and weaknesses
  • Question 3: Why Vedanta
  • Question 4: Why did you learn juggling
  • Question 5: What does your name mean
  • Question 6: How will you design a hood for capturing gasses near the outlet of a rotary furnace where the molten metal comes out
  • Question 7: What did you learn in your marketing internship
  • Question 8: What are your long term objectives
  • Question 9: Do you have any other offers
  • Question 10: Any location preference
Interview Experience
The interview was very informal. I was prepared for everything that they asked except that design of a hood. They weren't expecting an answer from me rather they wanted to see my approach towards the problem. They were impressed with my internships and asked a few questions which I answered.
Interview Tips
Everything depends on how you drive the interview. Be confident and show your enthusiasm for getting into the company.
