IBM Campus Recruitment-SGGS - Nanded, November 09, 2014
IBM visited my Institute on 9th November, 2014.
It was informed to us that IBM will be coming to our campus just three days ago the date, So I started with all my preparations.
Basically the recruitment procedure is divide into 3 parts:
1) Online aptitude test.
2) English assessment (I had In-Person).
3) Technical Interview.
As I had read in many reviews that 50% of the aptitude is on number series I started practicing. I almost did around 400 examples from where ever I could gather. And remaining 50% is general aptitude. And since I was good at aptitude. I didn't give much attention to that part.
On the final day I got to hear a new type of aptitude. "ADAPTIVE TEST" that is. if you answer a question correct the next question will be tougher than the current one, and if you answer wrong then the next question will be easier than the current one. In short we had to decide our difficulty levels on our own. I was really tensed when I came to know about this because I was not prepared for such a thing.
The test started at 11 am. 20 questions : each question had a time limit of 2 mins 15 secs.
- Once gone you cannot come back to that question.
- System in built Calculator was allowed.
- First question was of time and work. And in the following questions I got questions from percentage and profit and loss. NO question from number series. And to me all questions had been tough. That is the difficulty level was good. Values were mostly of 4 to 5 digits. So speed was must..!!!
I was not sure about clearing the test. But the result was in my favor and I was through it.
Next was English assessment. This round was the easiest of all. Interviewer was a lady HR. She was very sweet. :) She asked me to introduce myself and I was just waiting for this question. I spoke continuously for 5 min. (make this question your strongest point, because first impression matters a lot). Keep in mind for IBM talk English, walk English, think in English because English is NOT a funny language for them, if you want to get selected.
After this round I was immediately called for Technical interview within 15mins.
For Technical Interview there was a panel of 4. Interview starts with introduction. (I was so happy to hear that question again.!!). They asked me about my projects, done.!!
After that they asked the common MR questions. Remember : Flaunt your English and tell as many Extra curricular activities as much you can. They give extra marks for it.
And that's it..!!!
Results were out by 9pm. And I was selected.!
Hope this will help you.
All the very best.
And if rejected don't get disheartened. You will make it some other day just be confident and have faith in yourself!!
