Myself KUNAL from Jagannath Institute for Technology & Management, Paralakhemundi. Now I m in 6th sem...here I m going to tell about my experience about that placement drive. this was my second company bcoz I was not eligible for INFOSYS due to some new conditions. I was very shocked due to this and frankly speaking I had not a good preparation for this drive. Around 1300+ candidates attended the drive.
There were 3 rounds..
1. Written test
2. Group discussion
3. Personal Interview
Written test: It consist of three sections.
1. Aptitude (30 quest)
2. Reasoning (30 quest)
3. English (30 quest)
Aptitude section was a little bit tough. I didn't prepare well for this section but anyhow I managed to do this portion. My suggestion is to refer R.S.AGGARWAL for this section. It is just more than enough...but u need to be conscious towards time management as there was sectional and overall cutoff.
Reasoning was the portion which was positive point 4 me as I prepared it in a nice manner for INFOSYS. Again u go through VERBAL & NON-VERBAL REASONING BY R.S.AGGARWAL.... Try to complete this portion in short while of time bcoz all the questions will be easy..
English eas in between the two...not so easy..not so hard...4 synonyms were there which were as usual tough. Then two passages were der...which u should do in the last coz it is an easy part.. Regarding English I will say that if u have a good background of english then it will be a plus point for u...
Around 5:30 p.m. results for the written test were declared. Around 550+ cleared the written test and I was one of them.
After the results of written test 47 batches for GD were formed... In each batch 12 students were present.. I was in batch no:31...Around 7p.m. we were called for the GD...we suggested the topic LIVE IN RELATIONSHIP but the HR changed the topic by LOVE MARRIAGE Vs. ARRANGED MARRIAGE..
So..u be prepared with 2-3 topic of your own... our discussion went in a nice manner and finally I emerged as the leader... that was a positive sign for me.. so friends.. for GD keep u need to be a good communicator.. u need to keep your points in a clear manner with in a short while of time..
Around 9:30p.m. results were declared...selection was very tough as they were selecting maximum 4 from a group...from our group 4 were selected and again I made it..
After results documents verification were done and we were said to report at 8;00 a.m. sharp by next day...
we were knowing that PI will be held but they changed the programme and they converted PI into Group interview...In my group 12 members were der..
Around 9:30 a.m. we were called for the interview...it was a HR interview only...general HR questions were asked from us.... when my turn came I thought that if I could represent myself in a nice manner for 10 minutes my life will be changed....
HR: From where u are?
HR: About family background.
HR: are you willing to work anywhere?
HR: what is your position in your class?
Hr: then questions from summer training.. if any (not technical)
Me: told about my training.
HR: then he asked some questions about hobbies...
Me: told in detail (be prepared for lot of questions from this part)
HR: do u know anyone in L&T?
Me: I told about my school senior who was working in L&T for 3 yrs.
HR: finally he said..if u have any questions>
Me: do we need to go for some additional training to be fit in L&T?
HR: replied in a very nice manner...
Then we had to wait for almost 6 hrs for the final result.. result was cummulative..i.e written+ marks in GD+Interviw... my name was called at 6th position....intially it was unbelievable that I did it but this was true that I was placed... after the final results..we were called to collect our offr letters and it was really nice to see your job in your hand.. I was overjoyed after the results as I didn't thought that I would get a job in 6th sem bcoz I lost my all hopes due to my year gap.
So friends...believe in yourself.. don't loose your hopes...just do your job with honesty...definitely u can do it...
