I am Pragya Singh pursuing my B.Tech at B.B.D.N.I.T.M. Lko in I.T and I am proud to say that I have been placed in L&T infotech.
We had a join campus at SRMCEM, lko. We were asked to come at 8:30a.m and ppt was to start at 11 a.m. However, due to sum technical problem they could not start it on time. Since the problem could not be rectified, we had to end up with a few oral information about the company. Then they gave us answer sheet and paper, here I wud like to tell dat there were 3 sets of paper, pink, yellow and white.
Now I m going to describe the procedure in detail:
1. Written test
The paper consisted of 90 ques to b done in 90 mins. It was divided into 3 sections, each containing 30 ques. There was no -ve marking.
a) Quantitative apti: permutations combinations, probability, matrix, determinant, ratio n proportion, mixture n allegations, age, distance, train etc. the questions were damn easy, u jst need to b thorough with your fundamentals n formulas, r.s agrawal is more dan enough.
b) Reasoning: puzzles, syllogism, ranking, sequence, to find nxt figure, rest I do not remember.
c) English: this was easy. Passages, analogies, vocabulary, conclusion, replacing a part of sentence wid other options, etc etc.
they declared the result after 3 hrs, since the OMR ans sheet were provided. 107 students cud clear it out of 550 students n of course, I was one of them..
They told us dat interviews will b tomorrow.
2. Technical interview
We were divided into 4 groups, since 4 panels were simultaneously running the interviews. Before that we were asked to fill a 4 page form, plz give only true information.
Questions to me were:
What r your areas of interest?
What r d disadvantages wid arrays?
What do u mean by database consistency?
What must b the features of a good database?
Few ques related to link-lists.
What r n/w topologies?
What is peer-to-peer communication?
What is http and https?
Ques on ddl and dml.
Ques on data structures.
How will u convince me to hire u?
What kind of person are you?
How will u manage your team?
So, u prefer listening or singing (in my hobbies I wrote singing)?
In the form, for location preferred I wrote mysore, he said why mysore, why not banglore? I said, sir I can work anywhere, I wrote mysore just like that.
Then v had some debate kind of session on perfectionism, he was impressed by my answers. I must say that, my interviewer was a very nice person, he made me so comfortable that I was able to clear that phase. It lasted for, 30 mins.
Then he said thank u and wait for the HR, at this moment I was 100% sure that I have cleared that phase. THANK GOD..
3. HR interview
After 15 mins. My HR took place. It was a stress interview. I think my tech. interview was too good, and I was given a very good remark, that's why the hr person went 4 stress int. but I managed it easily..
I was asked following ques:
Meaning of my name.
My rank in upsee.
My position in my class.
What do I do in spare time?
From where I get I.T related news?
Name of some, major publication houses.
Give me an e.g. where u had taken initiative.
He asked, which book u have read recently?
I said, the monk who sold his Ferrari
He said, tell me 10 new things that u have learned from that book
I told him.
He was framing ques from my answers.
He said, u can ask me a ques.
I asked, what r the criteria that your organization uses for performance appraisal?
He said, why do u need to know this?
I said, so that I cud reach the peak of the job as soon as possible.
He said, how can u say that I am going to hire u?
I said, I believe that I am the right candidate for this post, blah, blah, blah..
I think he was impressed.
It lasted for 10-15 mins.
On 8th the result was declared. From my college 12 more are selected. I am very happy. Its all by god's grace.
It was my 5th company. In previous exams I cud not clear even the written, except in hcl, but since it was my 1st int. I had no idea abt the atmosphere, so I got nervous. But this time I cleared all the stages with full confidence. Now, I am a proud member of the famous and prestigious L&T infotech..
