INFOSYS Interview Experience - HALDIA 13TH AND 14TH OCTOBER 2014
I am sharing my campus drive experience Of Infosys organised by our college on 13th and 14th october 2014.
It was a 2 day drive, the pre placement and aptitude was conducted on the 1st day and the interviews on the 2nd day.
1st let us move on to the pre placement section, an 40 mins presentation consisting of videos and information about the company was discussed by the H.R who visited us. All the necessary things about the training and several products of theirs were mentioned and scope for the non CS-IT background students were also mentioned.
Suggestion: Listen carefully to what they are saying, it works well at the time of personal interview. If you have any doubts ask it then and there, they will clear it out pretty well.
Now next, let us come to the aptitude part. This is the eliminator, so give your best shot here.
Its consists of three sections:
Section 1 : Data interpretation, Data sufficiency, Syllogisms.
They will give a graph or pie chart or tables. Ours was a bar graph of sales of some product, their cost in respective years. These questions are tricky, but be calm and think logically while solving them as they know what are the mistakes one can commit and options can be confusing.
It is easier than the others, you just need to think calmly.
This is another tricky part, but you just need to read the sentences carefully may be more than once, and think rationally to answer, don't get confused.
Section 2: Its complete mathematical section i,e quantitative aptitude.
Sums on probability, permutation combination, clocks, series and coding-decoding may appear in this part, practise from different websites including this and follow R.S aggarwal. puzzles are quite tricky in this section, read all the options carefully and then answer.
section 3: Verbal (40 questions 35 mins).
Easy but the toughest to crack, most of my fellows couldn't get through it, because of this section. The preliminary thing I would like to suggest is, focus on the time management. Two extra large paragraphs will be given to you, you have to read it very carefully as questions are not straight forward, no extra time for reading, so practise reading from computers. And most important give short exams on verbal that are available in several websites including this. Practise from R.S aggarwal as well.
Now, let me come to the interview part. Dont be exhausted if you have to wait over 5 hours for your turn.
Look and be confident even if you know very little. These suggestions are specially for those with non CS-IT background.
Know your subject well, at least well enough to convince that you are eligible, know basic C-programming, atleast 2-3 programs.
HR: Good afternoon.
I greeted as well.
remember to keep a smile on your face.
HR: So tell me something more about you.
Remember to focus on points that are not mentioned in your C.V, but yet may carry a good impression. Don't say anything negative until asked.
HR: So why do you want to shift to IT as I can see you are pretty good in your own field.
It's better if you can come you with any new idea that can be implemented in both the fields, or that includes the use of IT and your domain as well.
I have been counter questioned on my answer regarding shifting from my field to IT, so be sure of what you are saying, don't give him a chance to find loopholes, be confident and logical.
HR: So tell me what logic should you use if you want to design a program that can be implemented in your domain industry.
I: Sir I can't write the exact code, but I can explain you the logic. So I explained him the parameters and the logic of the whole thing.
He seemed pretty impressed and uttered Good in reflex.
Remember whatever you are saying give some examples and relate to the real world.
The preliminary key is to be confident and able to give reasons to support your answer.
HR: Then he asked me if I had any questions.
I asked him about my interview, the training program at Infosys, and the scope to implement my domain in the company.
And after 3 days, results were announced out of the 236 who cleared the aptitude, 155 were selected and I managed to get through it.
All the best to everyone. Keep calm before starting the aptitude, take a deep breath and start.
All the best..!!
