My HR Experience:
My HR was a lady, about 40 years, it was a rejection panel(I came to know later). It was stress interview for me and it lasted for 25min.
I entered with a smile. I was not asked ‘about me’. Here goes my interview,
HR:U r Manoranjan right!!!
ME: Absolutely right mam!!!
HR: Have ur seat.
ME: Thank u very much mam.
HR: Y do u want to shift 4m EEE to IT.
ME: Purely because of passion mam.
HR: Passion??? Towards wat???
ME: Passion towards IT mam, because I have learned fundamentals of c and c++ and a little bit of Java in my curriculum mam, so I want to implement my theories into practicals in Infosys.
HR: Y Infosys specifically and not other company?
ME: I was strong with the company profile, so I could escape by telling that.
HR: Y should I hire u???
ME: If u don’t hire me, within the next 5 yrs u will see a company rising against Infosys, and when u analysis the reason 4 it, u will see Manoranjan(me) sitting in the chairman seat mam, so it’s the right time to hire me and I m waiting 4 this opportunity for the last 3 yrs.(The HR laughed)
HR: What will u do if u r rejected?
ME: I will be very disappointed by heart mam but I will not leave hope and try for the next company.
HR: Do u play chess?? (I mentioned in my resume)
ME: Yes mam, I have the certificates of my district level participation.
HR: So solve this puzzle. In a 7*7 chess board how many maximum queen u can place with out intersection.
ME:I blinked 4 a minute and I took the paper and drew the pictorial representation and I explained it. The answer is 6. (She said Good)
HR: u r given five 5’s, I want 23 as the answer.
ME: I tried squaring, taking roots, but nothing worked out, finally I did it.
The answer is 5*5-(5+5)/5
HR: What new things u have learned recently?(seeing my resume, I had put I m interested in learning new things).
ME: I told I am learning Java from my friend and JDBC concepts. I am also planning to do a course in NIIT so that I would be fully equipped to Infosys environment.
HR: What do u do in Leo club?(4m my resume) (Actually I was not a member of Leo club, but to fill my profile I had included this)
ME: I told I have donated my eyes, I donated blood 4 times, and I dedicated my body to Madras Medical College, and I talked abt group work and many more lies as I told earlier.
HR: Give example for ur adaptability??(all 4m my resume)
ME: I told. (Lie again) But I was confident in my Lie, as though I did it really.
HR: Wats ur fav subject???
ME: Transmission and Distribution and Fundamentals of C and C++ mam.
HR: But I am not goin to ask that, Tell abt DSP.
ME: Mam DSP means Digital Signal Processing and it is used in many appliances, its latest version is DSP320c54x (who knows). And I told all wrong thing abt DSP, but she didn’t find out.
HR: Tell me difference between DSP and Microprocessor?
ME: I blabbered something, but with confidence.
HR: Ok Manoranjan, u can leave now.
ME: Thank u very much mam.
Finally, the result was announced two hours later, I am lucky to be selected. Only my confidence had helped me to get into Infosys.
‘Be a Lion, Be a King…’ Don’t worry abt ur low aggregate. If u r confidence u r placed. A Lion doesn’t wait 4 its prey, It Takes It..
