Hints: The main thing is, what the interviewer asks you to depend on you because the focus will be on your resume. So screening the resume will be based on you and so take it seriously and also put the projects known to and if you really do know about it and then please have questions to ask, maybe 2 questions. CSE Students, please cover all the basics on mostly DSA, any programming language, OS, Networks, and DBMS, and keep updating yourself about the latest emerging and trending technologies and know more about it. Be smart active. Know about Cognizant as well before you appear for an interview. Be confident. Proper delivery(language) is important.

Please reach out to me if you have any doubts, Very Good Luck and All The Very Best.
