Cognizant Technology Solutions Interview Experience - Tirupati, Mar 21st, 2014.
M Deepthi. I am from ECE branch. I attended CTS off-campus drive at Tirupathi Sri Vidhyaniketan Engineering College. I would like to share my interview Experience with you.
Firstly, I would like to tell about written exam. It was conducted one week before the interview.
There are 55 questions and there is no negative marking. All questions were of reasoning, verbal like correct-incorrect statements, order of sentences, comprehensions (very big & time taking), syllogism etc.
In order to clear the written exam, basic knowledge of verbal English is enough. Anyway it is better to practice RS Agarwal book.
After two days our results were mailed and for gods grace I was one among those.
Coming to technical & HR, the interview is like this:
TR : Good Afternoon.
Me: Good Afternoon Sir,
TR : Ok Deepthi, Tell me about Yourself.
TR : Explain about your project.
Me: Here actually I didn't mention my project in resume as it is started just 4 days before. I apologized him for that n he said ok. [y m saying this is if we made any mistake also we need to kindly say him sorry for our mistake]. I explained about my project in detail for about 15 minutes.
TR : Do you know C language.
Me: Yes sir,
TR : Do you know pointers concept.
Me: Yes sir. Asked a pgm in pointers n I wrote it correctly.
TR : Asked a pgm about swapping.
TR: Asked two puzzles in which one I told correctly.
TR: Do you have any ques?
Me: Asked about the training given to freshers. [dont skip this ques].
Here, I want to mention you that as I am an ECE graduate, he didn't ask me any academic question except proj. Be thorough and clear with your project. And also prepare academics wise question also.
One of friend is also an ECE graduate but TR asked about LINUX, UNIX, SQl etc. At that time, you have to clearly mention that you are ece graduate and know languages like C. [If you know linux and unix then there is no problem, if you don't know ten mention].
After my TR, I was asked to sit outside and after 5-10 min, they called me and told me that I cleared TR and told me to go into another room for HR.
Me: Good afternoon sir,
HR: Good afternoon.
HR: Tell me about yourself.
HR: Why CTS?
HR: What are the qualities that a team leader should have?
HR: Where are you from? Say good n bad in your city.
HR: What are you good at apart from academics.
HR: Speak about one of your hobby for 2 min.
HR: Diff b/w hard work and smart work.
HR: What makes you angry?
HR: How many years would you work with CTS.
HR: Any ques?
Me: I just asked his name and left the room.
One key to crack the interview is to answer each question with confidence.
After 6 days they announced the results and I was one among them. Thank you God for all these. :).
