Infosys Interview Experience - Hyderabad, October 21st, 2013.
I would like to share recruitment experience with you especially people whose target is to be placed in infosys.
I attended the drive in my college itself. Infosys consists of 2 round. Former is the written test and the latter is Hr interview.
1) WRITTEN TEST.
Written test consists of 2 sections Logical reasoning (30 question in 40 mins) and verbal ability (40 question in 35 mins).
I have practiced R.S Agarwal reasoning and previous infosys papers, hardly 3-4 reflected from previous papers.
Logical reasoning was quite ok for me in the level of toughness as I could solve almost all problems and that may be because of practicing previous papers I have been acquainted to the toughness.
Coming to verbal ability it was little tough. You should be fast enough to read the questions quickly and answer them.
Passages are very big so I followed the common techniques reading questions first and passage next to find answers.
Results of written test were announced at 7'0 clock in the evening. 250+ members from our college attempted written test and 120 were qualified. I was so glad to hear my name from infosys recruitment team member.
Next day they conducted interviews.
2) HR INTERVIEW.
It was a simple interview for about 20 min.
My turn came at 3'0 clock. Interviewer was very friendly and cool.
Door was slightly closed.
Me: Knocked the door and asked "May I come in Ma'am".
Intr: Ya come in.
I was standing beside the chair waiting for her permission just for 2 sec.
Intr: Please take your seat.
Me: Thank You ma'am. (sat in the chair).
Intr :How is your day. (she asked this question with a peaceful smile probably to make me comfortable).
Me: confidently answered "its good ma'am" (smiling back).
Intr: Tell me something about yourself?
Intr: Your project seems very interesting tell me something about it.
Me: my project is an android application. I explained everything about it.
Intr: What is your role in the project.
Me: We developed user interface mock up screens using the android sdk toolkit. Coding part was mostly taken from official android site. Tested to identify the backdrops. (Here I used the word "we" to emphasize teamwork. My team consists 2 members including me).
Intr: Did you find any difficulty or problems while developing the application.
Me: Yes mam.
Then immediate question.
Intr: What is it and how you solved it ?
Me : told about the problem and the way we found the solutions.
Intr: How did you came to know that particular sentences are not executing properly (question was something like this in its meaning).
She then told "well answered, now i'll move to your paper presentations".
Intr: You gave a presentation on "Big Data " !
Me: Yes maam.
Intr: What is Big data?
Me : told all about the topics I covered in presentation.
Intr: asked some questions in that topic.
Intr: What is the life cycle in software development process.
Me: told about it in brief sentences.
Intr: raised a question about the testing phase.
Me: at that moment I couldn't recollect it. I told her "sorry maám I don't remember but given some time I will definitely try it ".
Me: Ok no problem.
Intr: In It industry you have to learn new thing quickly will you be able to do this.
Me: Definitely ma'am. I'm a person who have the zeal to learn new things (mentioned this in resume also).
Intr: Can you go and work in different locations outside this state.
Me: yes I'm flexible and adaptable enough.
Intr: Do you have any questions for me.
Me: Yes maam. Its been how many years you are working in infosys.
Intr: 15 years.
I don't know if we can ask an another question or not but I asked her about her designation as I was shocked to hear her 15 years service in infosys. She then told name of her position (some big name) and smiled.
Intr: ok nice meeting you. Forwarded hand.
Me: with a hand shake told "My pleasure maam".
This is how my interview ended. I was confident that I will be selected as my heart was telling "well done you impressed the interviewer ".
Friends written is very important for infosys once you clear it you can easily get through interview provided with good communication skills. Always gain a good impression while answering tell me about yourself.
MAKE SURE WHATEVER you WRITE IN RESUME BECAUSE MOSTLY THOSE WILL BE YOUR INTERVIEW QUESTIONS.
What ever you say, it should be confident and convincing. Never bluff the answers, if you don't know any, then say that sorry sir I don't know/i don't remember.
Maintain smile while answering questions.
Give only positive information about you never give any negative info.
Hope for the best thing to come in your way.
Good luck :).
