My name is Vaibhav Gupta. I am 3rd yr. student of Electronics & Communication Engineering from IEC College of Engineering & Technology Greater Noida.
INFOSYS came to our campus for the recruitment of 3rd yr. students on 19th Feb. 2008.
Only 1(one) live back is allowed.
We had been told to report at IEC-CET at 8:30 a.m. on 19th Feb.
First the HR head of the INFOSYS team gave us a paper presentation (PPT) of about one and a half hour. Don’t miss it, it’s really very good and motivate u a lot. Keep a paper and pen with you and note the entire imp. Points that the HR told you during PPT is helpful to you for the HR interview.
After that, around 11:30 a.m. we gave our written test which comprises of two section LR (logical reasoning) and English section. For the written exam the pattern was exactly same as u can get the pattern from others experience, so let’s not waste any time of yours and mine too, I am now focusing myself on the HR interview.
Result of the written exam was declared at 6p.m. 64 students out of around 450 of my college IEC were short listed. I was amongst the lucky 64 students.
Immediately after that, they told us to be grouped in a class where they were calling us one by one for the interview. There were 10 panels where the interviews are going on. My turn came at around 08:45 p.m. And my interview goes on like this……….
M: May I come in sir.
S: Yes, please come in.
(As I was just standing in front of him, he said)
S: Be seated
M: Thank you sir

M: Sir I have told you earlier that I have been the vice captain of my school’s basketball’s team so the height of the basket is around 3.5m and it is looking slightly higher than this, that’s why I said this.
S: (impressed……..) it is a good way to analyze
M: Thank u sir.
(Again some general questions and questions from my resume)
And at last
S: Good and best of luck.
M: Thank you sir.
My interview is for about 15-20 min and I thought it was good. At around 11:45 p.m. my name was announced amongst the 55 luckiest students who got an offer from INFOSYS. I think that was the happiest day of my life, we all were screaming, hugging and congratulating each other.
Friends really it’s not that much hard as it seems to you. Just believe in “GOD” and yourself and always keep one thing in mind that “I can do it and I will”.
I had decided that if I was selected in INFY then definitely I will share my experience with others because
We make a living by what we get but we make a life by what we give
