Cognizant Interview Experience - Hyderabad, 26 September, 2013
I entered into the room asking him "Excuse me sir may I get in?"
He said " Ya get in, Hi you are Dileep right? and gave a very firm hand shake"
I said "Yes sir".
Interviewer: Can you talk about yourself?
( Everybody please note, He is not going to listen to your content but He will just see how good you are speaking and How confident you are. So speak continuously and tell him all that is available in Resume too)
Interviewer: Okay Dileep, You have done a project on Android. How did you do that? What are the steps?
Me: It's a Software Engineering question, So I just explained the steps similar to SDLC.
Interviewer: Can you write a logic to print Fibonacci series?
Me: wrote & explained.
Interviewer: okay! I'll ask you some puzzles Dileep.
1. There is a thread of length 100m. You need to cut the thread into pieces of 1m length. For first cut the thread becomes two pieces 1m, 99m. So in total how many Cuts are required?
2. Suppose a watch man is sitting at the middle of a bridge and you must cross the bridge. The good thing is that the watchman always sleeps but the bad thing is he automatically wakes as soon as you reach the middle of the bridge and sees that you are crossing the bridge and sends you back. How will you cross the bridge?
