Hello Friends

Im about 2 share my experience of HCL technologies recruitment drive held on 12th Feb 2007 at Lucknow. This was d first company coming 2 our collg so I was not so confident dat I'l make it!! My branch is Electronics n communication..(6th sem)

Venue: Northern India Engineering College (BBD GEI)

First was WRITTEN, it had 2 sections :

(1) Aptitude: aptitude had 35 questions ..Many repeated questions were there, Data interpretation, puzzles, passages, jumbled sentences,etc..pattern was same. I cant recall all ques,,but il try:

One was a question on nails........two passages...a question on race..

Q) how many odd numbers r there between 2000 & 4999.

Q) a figure involving concepts of geometry.(not dat tuf!)

Q) a question on multiplication of two nos. with unknown digits (O1 E1 O2 E2..)(seemed tuf 2 me so I didn't attempt!)

Q) a similar question : A exists if C is present B exists if D & A are present ..n so on (quite a simple question I got d answer with truth table method it got easy)

Q) somewhat same question as above involving Figo, Ronaldo ..etc...& one drives scooter while the other rides bicycle...n so so(was easy!...MUST give time 2 such questions)

Q) a question on years(simple one!)

To cut it short apti was nt dat tuf...i jus left those questions of which I had absolutely NO IDEA...use ur rough sheet 2 the fullest.!

(2) Technical: this section had 20 questions  & we were givn 15mins 2 solve....topics --microprocessor, physical n logical address, little endian & big endian mode, complexity  of algorithms, Revise complete Data structure(VRY VRY IMP!)..a simple question to find 2's complement ...C programs (POINTERS-"Most IMP")....

After written we expected 2 have GD....but it got few students had their Technical & HR the same day.......

My turn was on 13th Feb ..(the next day)....whole night tension, anxiety, fear kept me awake!!! whole bed was piled with buks..all I cud get.. i had never faced interview n all before ...n was really scared of failure...becoz once things get in our hand we don't want 2 let it go...

We gathered at college in morning at 9 patience was put 2 test that turn came at 8 pm...I was physically n mentally exhausted...but had 2 give a try at least....

As the interview started Sir asked 4 my CV...n brief introduction... & then started firing all questions one by one!

Sir-do u know C, well?
Me-yes sir.
Me-yes sir! I said im not a proficient but am learning.

Sir- difference between C & C++?
Me-told him all bout OOPs

Sir-what is abstraction, polymorphism? Types of polymorphism? types of inheritance?
Me-told him all whatever I knew...while describing types of polymorphism (runtime & compile time) I mentioned "virtual functions"---(he interrupted)

Sir-do u know wat r virtual functions?
Me-I told him (as I had read it 5mins befor)...& also said I didn't hve detail knowledge of it..

Sir-u knew those questions I am askin???(his strong voice echoed in my ears)
Me- I got scared first..but his smile infused a confidence in me n I too replied coolly...dat I jus read in some buk jus bfor comin (its better 2 tell wats true)..

Sir-okok so listen im explaining this 2 you.
(he explaind me a whole program involving virtual functions n the two ways they are calld)...he asked me 2 listen carefully n confirmed that he wud ask me questions regarding it next time I met him....

I got excited at this ..but had 2 control it as the interview was still at progress...
Sir-now u tell me about pointers?
Me-told him.

Sir-(he gave me a program & asked 2 find its output)
Me-I had gone through pointers so it wasnt dat tuf  4 me...but still I took sometime 2 giv the answer..n got it rite! (he seemed pretty happy with dat)

Sir-do u kno bout inline functions?
Me-no sir..(I had no idea)

Sir-wat are stacks & queue?
Me-I told ..(ask 4 a pen n paper n explain it with program)(he looked satisfied!)

Sir-do you know wat r link lists?write program?
Me-I wrote d program....(as I was bout 2 finish he said okok fine)

Sir looked very serious, he had a good accent, he talked in a very friendly manner helping the candidate 2 feel it did  2 me!

After this phase was over NOW I was confident that ill make it!!...i was sent 2 HR...

HR was cool:
Same old questions
introduce urself
Family background,
Fathers occupation.....wat bout railways (as my fathr is in railway)
About siblings
Strengths (must prepare well! Speak loudly, clearly n confidently with SMILE)u'll realize its IMP!)
Weakness (think beforehand if not abl 2 get it ask ur frns )
Hobbies (I told Writing, music, dance -he asked wat kind of writing I said  not on daily basis but I note down things I wud like 2 read later....few self composed poems n articles & newspaper cuttings etc etc.....)

He asked few mor ques regarding this....(I was ready with question like wich latest article u've written frm? Where? n wat pasted? n all)....asked few mor ques from Cv..

...about relocation....about HCL foundation...jus checking communication skills........

&&& thanks to GOD.........i made it.......75 students got shortlisted....& it was a happy & most awaited moment 4 one more night excitement kept me awake!!!!

So don't lose day Is waiting for u too, for sure!!!.....just have confidence, smile & brush up ur skills as per requirement...go thru all papers
ITZ VRY ^(100) IMP......

*ALSO prepare ur seminar topic "Well"....they ask u if ur 6th sem is over!
*do prepare a Subject of intrest...(for EC students Digital elec wil do OR microprocessor)
*rest even luck matters...Be genuine alwayz...(it reflects)
