IBM Interview Experience - St Martin's Engineering College, Hyderabad. January 18, 19 2015
It basically consists of the following three rounds.
1. Aptitude (20 number series and 20 quantitative aptitude)
For number series refer this website.
And for quantitative aptitude be thorough with RS Aggarwal book.
600 students appeared for this round and around 300 students got shortlisted.
2. Verbal assessment test.
You don't really need to prepare for this test. If you are proficient in english and possess good grammar then you'll easily clear this round.
Out of 300 students 132 students got shortlisted in this round.
3. Personal interview.
The interviewer was a really nice man. Just make yourself comfortable and make sure you are being confident even though you are wrong. They only check your communication and confidence.
So it started something like this.
I: May I come in, Sir?
Him: Surely, please have a seat.
I: Thank you, sir.
Him: Can you tell me about yourself?
Him: Can you speak about social networking for at least a minute?
Him; What are the pros and cons of social networking?
Him: Thank you. I am done.
I: I asked him if I could ask him a question or two.
Him: Sure, go ahead.
I: In which area(s) I need to improve myself?
Him: Thought for a few seconds and told that I should improve my level of confidence a little more. Anything else you'd like to know?
I: Yes sir. What is your designation and for how long have you been working for IBM?
Him: I am a project manager and I have been with IBM for 9 years.
I: Thank you, sir.
Him: Have a nice day.
I: You too, sir. It's been a pleasure.
Out of 138 students, 110 students got selected.
P.S: As you can see, the difficulty level of the rounds decreases from top to bottom. So if you clear the written tests there's 90% chance that you will clear the interview too :).
Don't get disheartened or disappointed if you don't get selected. Maybe there's something better waiting for you :D.
I got selected and I'm waiting for my offer letter :).
Good luck guys!.
