KEANE PATTERN & INTERVIEW - 10 AUG 2007 - MYSORE
Caritor Inc.(Now renamed Keane) had came with pooling among the host college and Sri Jayachamarajendra College of Engineering, Mysore.
There were four rounds before selection:
1. WRITTEN TEST
2. GROUP DISCUSSION
3. TECHNICAL ROUND
4. HR ROUND
Cutoff was 60 (Engineering, Xth and XIIth).
The written test consisted of a Mandatory Essay writing and 3 sections Quantitative, Verbal and Logical Reasoning. Total there were about 35 questions. There was a sectional cut-off undisclosed.
Quantitative consisted mainly of numerical concepts including Time and Distance, Mixture, Time & work, Permutation combination, etc. Referring the book by R.S.AGARWAL would be a good help.
Verbal Section was the easiest consisting all fill in the blanks with articles, prepositions, question tags.
Reasoning section had some tricky problems dealing with big 9 digit numbers and some brain teaser stuff. Again R.S.A's reasoning book turns out to be useful.
Our GD topic was 'Is it justifiable to use mobile phones in campus?'. Well there wasn't a headache to clear this one.
Next, in Technical round they asked questions regarding to the candidate's branch. Since my branch was E&C, i was asked a lot of questions ranging from Microprocessors, C, C++, on Fourier transform, Electrical Transformers.
Most of the questions were oral, he was asking to explain that's all. But wherever necessary, I wrote and showed him.
He asked to draw the architecture of 8085, in C++ to define Inheritance, OOP and Polymorphism etc.
Here, if u can answer with confidence, it will help you quite a lot.
Later the HR round was quite simple. I was asked to tell me about myself, my background, hobbies, interests, strengths, Why Keane? And so on. Once again, I was pretty confident in answering which I assume was the key factor which worked out well.
From both colleges, more than 170 took the test, 99 were shortlisted, 45 cleared the technical round and finally 34 were selected. I was one of them.
