Infosys Interview Experience - Chennai, September 2, 2014
Hello everyone, I'm Deepika. I recently got placed in Infosys through my college on Campus Drive. I wish to share my whole placement experience here, since this website was actually helpful for me to get through.
Although, this may not be much helpful for students who wish to apply Off campus. It might still be good to know a few expectations from these companies.
1. Analytical Thinking and Arithmetic Reasoning: 15 questions-25 mins.
The frequently asked topics are Data Interpretation and syllogisms. Do not expect direct syllogisms, they might ask you to make your own premises and conclusions as well from the given set of sentences.
I felt this section a bit tough, since the data interpretation charts had huge values and we had to compute percentages for finding the answers. Otherwise it was easy.
2. Logical reasoning and Mathematical critical thinking: 10 questions -35 minutes.
This section is really easy if you know the basic concepts of general topics in Quants like Probability, Permutation and Combination, Ratio and Proportions, Percentages, Time speed Distance and a few others. It is less likely that you might get the type of problems that you practice at home. So make sure you understand the concepts.
Logical reasoning can be tricky so make sure you practice a few problems before exam. A few hours of practice for logical reasoning is more than enough.
3. Verbal Reasoning : 40 Questions-35 minutes.
Infosys always makes Verbal reasoning a bit tough. The key is time management really. If you have a habit of reading books then this section will be moderate for you.
Mostly asked topics are Fill in Blanks, Reading Comprehension, Sentence correction finding the grammatical mistakes and Synonyms or Antonyms.
If you don't read much, then you might wanna start practicing a bit early. Probably 5 or 6 days before the test is enough.
After all this headaches :P I cleared and went to HR interview next day.
The best mindset to have before facing an HR interview is that think that your not going to get the job. I know this is a stupid advice but trust me it will work.
Be confident, think that you have nothing to lose.
All they expect from freshers is a good attitude and an ability to learn more. And never fear to admit your ignorance on any subject that they are asking. Boldly just say "I'm sorry sir I don't know".
Always showcase the best of you to them. Some HR's do not even look at your resume (But resumes are very important, make sure that they are perfect without any errors. Because they might take that error as a reason to reject you if they want).
Anyway this is how my interview went.
As I entered the room (it was a one-to-one interview) I confidently shook hands with him and wished him "Good morning". He introduced himself to me (Just told me his name :P) and asked me to sit down.
He asked me to tell me about myself. Since it was a very typical question I had an answer prepared.
He listened and looked at my resume but did not ask anything from it. He asked about my final year project and some general questions like "what is cloud?" "What is Big Data?".
Honestly I didn't know what is Big data or cloud clearly. Still I blabbered confidently and then told "Sorry sir, I don't know" and then he asked how some questions like " What is the most amazing invention you know and how has it impacted people's life?".
I thought for a few seconds and told him Mobile phone communication. And then he asked me a few questions about mobile communication.
You can tell them anything you want but make sure you know something about it before you answer.
Finally he asked me if I have any questions. People please make sure that you don't ask questions like "What are the transportation facilities you provide and what is your salary package. " etc.
This can really let down a well going interview. When they let you to ask questions, ask them something that will show them that you are interested in taking the job i.e. like "Do you expect any particular skills from freshers like us or Is their an opportunity for us to learn or do our masters from the job" etc.
And that was my experience from my first on campus drive.
All the best and Best of luck to all you!
Remember Confidence and practice is the key.
See you in Infosys! :D.
