This is Raj, I want to share my experience with u which was my first experience. Satyam was the first company which I attended. Well it was a total of 3 rounds. First round include the written test which contains 15 questions. It includes C and some Aptitude (For Aptitude if u prepare R.S Agarwal it is more than enough)
Then comes the Group Discussion Round which is the Second Round. My Topic was "Effects of movies on Childrens". I was not the initiative though I started in the middle, I said... Childrens dont know how to tie up their shoes they learn from their parents. They dont know how to do Math problems they learn from their Lecturers so with all of these role models they learnt from what they see even if it is on the big screen like Movies... I cleared that round. I know that I will get cleared that round.
Then my final round which include both Technical and HR.
When I entered the room, I said Good Morning sir!!! He smiled and said Good Morning....then he said please take your seat. The first Question he asked me was...
Tell About Yourself ?
I (smiled) was prepared for that. I started saying.......My name is Raja Shekar I am doing my Btech in ...then I did my interimediate in.......then i did my schooling in...............(see the order)
Then he asked me to tell about my family back ground ?
I said my father is a so and so.....
After that he asked me to write a C program for Factorial of a number using recursion.......
I wrote the program..
Then he asked me the difference between while and do while loop.......
Then he asked me.......Why should I hire u.......
I said as a fresher I am very flexible sir and u can mould me any type u want depending upon your requirements (I smiled at that time)
Finally he asked me.......If I sent u Abroad do u feel comfortable working there ?
I smiled and said i can work any where and under any pressure (I smiled).
I think he was very much impressed with me. Then he said thanq Mr.Raj Shekar. Now I am a SATYAMITE enjoying the life.....
