iGATE Interview Experience - Kolkata, November 14, 2014
The aptitude paper was very easy. It consisted of 50 ques which was to be solved in 60 mins. I think the cutoff was around 43-45. I somehow cleared the aptitude.
The interview was in two parts. 1. Technical Round 2.HR Round.
I went inside the room wished good afternoon and shaked hand.
TR: Introduce yourself.
TR: Why should I hire you ? ( be ready to expect questions like this in tr round )
Me: Sir, My basic concepts of Academics are clear and if given a chance the I will be one of the most disciplined and dedicated employee of the company.
TR: You are an EC engineer what will you do at Igate ?
Me: Sir, iGATE is not limited to IT. I have read over the internet that it has got a working sector that deals with Telecom. So, I can be used over there.
TR: You heard about 4G.
Me: Sir 4G has not yet evolved completely its 4G LTE Long Term evolution.
TR: Ok tell me about that.
Me: Sir, I don't know much about that.
TR: OK you heard about 1G, 2G, 3G what are that ?
Me: Explained each in details.
TR: What is the range of frequency used by the Telecom providers in India ?

Me: Thank you sir.
The HR round was easy.
She asked me questions like
Tell me about yourself.
Describe your project (to check your english).
Family back ground.
Regarding favourite location. etc
The important thing is that you will have to be very confident and relaxed in front of the interviewer. I gave 2 interviews before in TCS and Bosch but never lost hope.
I am happy that finally when the results were declared after 5 days my name was on the list of the selected candidates.
