Round 2 (Group Discussion): Next was the Group discussion round. All the students who cleared the test successfully were qualified for the Group discussion round.
For this round, all the participants were divided into groups, and each group was given a topic. The topics were related to everyday activities and events prevalent around society.
My group got the topic “How is the IT industry influencing the economy?”.
In this round, we were being judged for our general knowledge, confidence, convincing ability, and communication skills. This round also went well. The list was out within an hour, and I was selected for the next round as well.
Round 3 (Technical Interview): This was more of a resume round where I was asked all the technical questions on the previous projects that I had done in my final term internship and the one that was mentioned in my resume. The interviewer also asked me the below-mentioned questions:
- Explain SDLC?
- List the different storage class specifiers in C?
- What is the necessity & advantages of OOPS?
- Write the programming code to swap two numbers without using the third variable?
- What is networking?
- What was your role in your major project?
Mainly, he was checking the details written on my resume. I answered all the questions correctly and fortunately passed this round as well.
Round 4 (HR Interview or Face to Face Interview Round): It was the most comfortable and most relaxed round of all the above. It was more of a cakewalk for me. Here the interviewer asked me some personal questions like,
- What are your future plans?
- What are your strengths professionally?
- Tell us about an accomplishment you are most proud of
- Do you want to pursue higher education?
Moreover, the interviewer was testing my fundamental knowledge and communication skills. I answered all the raised questions in a polite, clear, and confident way.
