Cognizant Tecnology Solutions Interview Experience - Bhopal, September 2014
It was a 2 part interview i.e.
1. Technical interview.
2. HR interview.
Your interview preparation doesn't only involves what you should do in the interview room but it also involves what you are doing while waiting for your turn near the interview room because it would influence your actions in the interview room. So keep yourself calm, patient and confident. You may need to wait for hours for your turn. You should keep on drinking water in short intervals to keep yourself fresh. You may also wash your face if you are feeling drowsy. Do not eat too much or too less.
Now, comes the interview. Greet the interviewer along with a smile. Ask before taking seat.
Now I would like to share the questions that were asked to me.
* I am from Electrical and electronics branch, so some questions were asked related to my branch.
Q.1 So Viresh what's the meaning of your name?
My ans.- Sir, The meaning of my name is the god of courageous people.
Q.2 What do you mean by a courageous person?
My ans.- A person does not have any fear.
Interviewer - No, I think your answer is wrong.
Me - ?????? I just looked at his face with a question mark.
Interviewer - Think again.
Me - Sir, courageous person is a person who has the ability to overcome his fears.
Interviewer - Now you are right.
Interviewer - Tell me something about your native place.
Me - Sir, I am from a town Nasrullaganj which is near Bhopal. Most of the people there, are farmers. There is greenery all around and there are many beautiful places to visit.
Interviewer, then picked my resume and started asking questions about my Project. He asked me to make the circuit diagram of that project and to explain that circuit diagram and then he asked me about the utility of that project.
Then he asked me the principle of a Motor, to make the diagram of the motor.
Then he asked me to make a simple C++ program and to explain it.
The interview continued for half an hour. Then I was asked to wait for 5 minutes outside the interview room for the result. I was selected and then I was asked to wait for the HR round.
I had to wait for 1 hour before my turn for the HR interview. I was so tired and it was reflected during the interview. My tongue was slipping and I was taking time to give the answers. But it was my good luck that I cleared the HR round also.
Questions that were asked in the HR round :
1. Tell me about yourself.
2. What is the meaning of your name.
3. Tell me about something amazing that has happened in your life.
4. Would you be comfortable in working in the night hours.
My ans - yes.
5. Would you be comfortable in working in different locations from time to time
My ans - yes.
6. Then she asked me to sign the job contract letter.
This was my interview experience. Overall it was a good day for me. It was not my first interview. I had earlier given the interview for Tech Mahindra but I could not clear it. I kept patience and confidence and learned from my previous mistakes. Your failure in 1 interview doesn't means that you are not worthy. My brother had to give 21 interviews before getting selected. So, its a game of patience, confidence and planning and hard work.
