EntcEngg: Hello, Welcome to EntcEngg and really thank you for giving your valuable time to us.
Saurabh:Thanks to u too for considering me for this interview
EntcEngg: What was your aggregate for all the years and did you prepare for your exams keeping placements in mind?
Saurabh: I joined the college in the second year directly due to my diploma course. My aggregate score was around 75 %. As far as the preparations are concerned I use to study for only when we have the university exams and in that time also I only focused on understanding the concepts. I didn’t study by keeping placements in my mind because placements are not obtained by getting only good marks in the university exam. We must have few skills that differentiate us from any other student.
EntcEngg: When did you start taking placements seriously and how did you prepare for them?
Saurabh: I started taking placements seriously when I was rejected by the first very high package companies. I didn’t even qualified for their aptitude test. For preparations, i referred to the various online websites for MCQ’s. I also learned basic programming languages from online tutorials.
EntcEngg: Tell us about the Interview. What did they ask and how did you answer those questions?
Saurabh: All the interviews were based on the resume. They looked into my resume and asked me to explain in brief all the projects listed in it. Then one of them asked me some programming questions. Do not lie in your resume that is the only best way to pass your interviews
EntcEngg: That one question which made you sweat in the interview. what did you answer and did it satisfy them?
Saurabh: I was from the e&tc background and they were concern about how I can adapt to a different programming language. But I convinced them that I didn’t join any kind of class to learn programming and I can do selflearn very efficiently
EntcEngg: What was the base of the Interview? I mean was it programming related or was it something else? Please elaborate.
Interview was completely based on projects that I had complete during the graduation. They were interested to know whether I did those on my own or took help from any agency. They also asked some oop concepts
EntcEngg: What exactly is HR round? What did they ask them?
Saurabh: He round is to check confidence level of any individual. They give you some situation and asks what will u do. Most common question is tell me about your self-other than what is mentioned in your resume
EntcEngg: According to you, What is the toughest thing to get placed?
Saurabh: The toughest thing is to accept rejection in whole placement process. Sometimes you may get passed through all rounds but fail to clear last round. Still you must keep faith in yourself and try even harder
EntcEngg: Anything You want to say to our Viewers and words of Advice
Saurabh: I would like to advise that no matter which stream you are you must at least know c programming other higher languages are appreciated as well. And most importantly answer the questions very confidently
