IBM GBS Interview Pattern and Experience - Pune, January 6, 2012
IBM GBS visited our campus on 6th jan 2012.Total of 66 students are appeared for the company and the have selected 25 including me. I am going to share my complete experience with you..hope it will help you..
First off all there is a company presentation for 10-15 minutes.Then there is a english test in which they have given three paragraphs and we have to write an abstract in 7 lines only..not more than seven line. If anyone goes above seven,then marks will be deducted.so strictly follow the rule...it was so easy..best way to pickup few lines from each para and write it down.
Then there is a online aptitude test which contains only two types of questions
i) Number series : find out the missing number..we have to identify the pattern..it was so easy...just practice for 15-20 questions and you will find it very simple.
ii)Quantitative: Just read all the formulaes from R S Agrawal and just go through the solve problems..it is more than enough to crack this section. Many examples are based upon formulaes only. Very easy.
There is no sectional cutoff.
Based on this two rounds they shortlisted 39 students.
Then there is a group discussion in a group of 10 students. The topic given to my group is Print media Vs Broadcast media. They gave us 2 minuets to think and half an hour to speak. At the end of the session they gave all an opportunity to speak 2 min. i,e conclusion.
keep in mind guys in GD,first five persons are noticeable. try to speak in first five peoples and be specific. After your first sentence try to spoke within next 2 minutes,the gap between two sentences should not more than 2 minutes coz in this way u r not noticeable.
The main thing here is if all candidates are nicely spoken,they will select complete group.My group was completely selected.
Next round was technical interview.
This round is different for EnTC and Comp/IT students.
In technical section they have given three programs and we have to write code for that in any choice of language.
my programs were
i) Factorial ii)Count total number of nodes in tree ii) Insertion sort
my friends also got queries from DBMS.
Here they ask to explain the programs. Just explain the programs deeply...thats it.
And the final round was an HR. It was very easy and just for formality. In this round they will give a situation and ask u how to deal with it. They will go through your resume and ask some basic technical questions my question was JOIN in DBMS.Just keep smiling in this round. They are very friendly and dont worry if you stuck somewhere just tell them that I don't no.they will give you another question.It is a kind of general discussion.
So guys....this was my journey and finally I got selected in IBM. I hope this will helpful for you.
Best of luck........!
