Capgemini Interview Experience - Mumbai 13/10/2016
1. Aptitude Test.
2. Technical Interview.
3. HR Interview.
Aptitude Test comprised of 16 logical reasoning questions and 16 quantitative (Mathematical) questions. There was no negative marking and time limit was 50 minutes for both the sections. We were allowed to switch between both the sections.
The questions were based on blood relations, coding and decoding, Profit and Loss, Age problems, Time and work, Syllogisms, Statement and Assumptions, Analogies, etc. Refer books such as R.S. Aggarwal and surf the net for logical concepts. It is quite easy but tough too. The sectional cutoff wasn't declared and the test was conducted by Cocubes.
Once this is completed, you will be directed to write an essay and the time limit is 30 minutes. This is very important part of the aptitude as majority of them make mistakes. Take good care of your writing skills and grammatical errors. Spelling mistakes are a strictly NO. Keep the following points in mind while writing an essay:
1. Space after comma (,)
2. Space after full stop (.)
3. Only one tense should be used throughout the essay.
4. Capital letters at appropriate places and no pronouns
5. Frame small sentences as it will prevent you from making mistakes.
6. Divide your essay into three parts - Introduction, Main Body and Conclusion.
The technical interview was okay with questions on Data Structures, Operating Systems, Computer Network, Wireless Technology, Software Engineering etc. These were my area of interests. Java questions were also asked. When you don't know the answer, don't panic but give a polite smile and be confident. Even if you don't know, try attempting and show that you will not give up. Take care of your gestures too.
The HR round was very easy and you can refer the questions from this website. Be confident and speak well.
Remember, communication skills are extremely important as this will propel you forward. Give explanatory answers and not short forms.
I am sharing a few tips for those who want to improve their communication skills:
1. Read newspapers every day and read what you like Eg: Sports, Movies, Food, Travel, Politics etc.
2. Watch people converse in English like Film Companion YouTube Channel and Arnab Goswami's debate on TimesNow.
3. Read Film Critic Anupama Chopra's reviews, Shubhra Gupta from Indian Express and Sarita Tanwar from DNA. Watch debates on YouTube.
Remember, English is not a conceptual thing. It's a language and is best learned when you incorporate it in in your daily life.
Overall, be confident and calm. Stay positive and speak well. Dress well and have faith in yourself and in God. Work hard and luck will follow. I was one of them who were selected.
