Chirag: Yes.But I didn’t get into it(it was Morgan Stanley and I was disqualified for low aggregate).
Chirag: Neither I took placements seriously nor I did I prepare to get placed.
Chirag: I used to competitive programming in the second year.
Chirag: I got placed at Ittiam systems. In the 1st round, I solved only general aptitude questions and didn’t solve a single technical question. In the 2nd round, they asked me my favorite subject and then proceeded to ask a slew of questions regarding it. And in the last round, which was an HR round I was asked about my hobbies and host of other things(I can’t explain all of them here).
Chirag: I answered honestly. Told them that I didn’t know the answer rather than hovering around.
Chirag: There was no such question.
Chirag: As I said earlier I didn’t prepare for placement
Chirag: It was regarding programming. They asked me to write some programs and for some problems, they asked me to write logic only.
Chirag: In my case, it lasted for around 50 min. He asked me about almost every aspect of my personality ranging from my hobbies to my thoughts on religion.
Chirag: Technical aptitude.
Chirag: The focus of developing logic and don’t forget to work on English proficiency.
