CARITOR PATTERN - 18 SEP 2005 - HYDERABAD
well i am a new member of the Friends group and am a student as of now we had been called for the off campus selection held by Caritor India Pvt Limited. When we reached there we were shocked to see the number of colleges invited i mean the interview was held at Andhra Pradesh level.
we had an aptitude comprising of two pprs-one, aptitude, comprising of stuff from r.s aggarwal and tyra and the second paper was technical C questions each section had 30 questions and there wasnt any negative marking but then we were given only 1 min per question. After half an hour the first question sheet was taken away and then the technical was given.
The aptitude wasnt bad..but was time consuming.so guys aspiring for caritor pls do work on ur time management. The c questions were relatively easy.mostly stuff from yeshwant kanitkar, so do ur c well!!
I was not expecting , so was chill..they said they wud announce the results at the end of the day and tht too on the net i wasnt expecting so was kinda bindaas but to my surprise i was shortlisted from about 3000 students. about 250 ppl frm various disciplines were selected
we were called for the GD and interview the next day..
the topics were general and were related to the current affairs-topics like cellphone ban in colleges, petroleum products being subsidised, china threat to india, foreign coaches for sports (tht was my topic)
well the success mantra to this was be cool, confident and crisp. keep smiling ,dont be nervous and be a very good listener. i cleared my GD and was then asked to wait for my technical round
I was called by the hr interviewer who was pretty friendly and cool. He dint make us feel nervous, made us feel very comfortable as I was from IT background me and two others were drilled on subjects ranging from algorithms, data structures, networks, operating systems, microprocessors, databases and general HR.
The guy was looking if we knew the concepts and wasnt very particular abt the code of the programs being asked. The ECE background people were asked abt microprocessors and transducers and stuff. They were looking for people with a strong concept and for people who get things right in the first attempt. That was their criteria from day1
They invited people with minimum 65% and who had cleared all their subjects in the first attempts! some how for the technical, b sure that if u r sure of the answer then do say,but then if u dont its better to remain silent than to fumble!!
being cool and confident helped me..they said us to assemble in the seminar hall!!!
when we went there to our surprise we had to give a written essay on "your career aspirations-what do u want to achieve in your life" ,the word limit being 100 words. they were very specific about what they wanted.
we were then made to wait for the results to be announced..
and luckily I was selected amongst a group of 100+ students
they short listed only 31 students, we were given a presentation then on what caritor is as an institute and about the organisation.
the non-IT students were to take up testing and the IT guys had to join as programmers they gave u a years time to think over and the offers they offered were pretty good
all in all they say "ALLS WELL THAT ENDS WELL"
hope my experience does help ..
