EY-GDS conducted an On-Campus Placement drive at my university for Cyber Security profile. The recruitment process had three rounds which took a month to complete.
Round 1: Aptitude Round
This round had 5 sections comprising Quantitative Aptitude, Logical Reasoning, Verbal Ability, Computer Programming and Cybersecurity. The exam was 2 hours long and was conducted on Aspiring Minds (SHL-AMCAT). The question-level was Easy to Moderate. There was no coding round as such, however, the output of pseudocodes was asked in the Computer Programming section and basic to moderate question on Cybersecurity were asked. There was no backtracking and negative marking and it was compulsory to attempt all questions. Every section had an allotted time.
Round 2: Technical Interview
It was a virtual interview (1:1) which was conducted on HireVue. Questions were mostly based on my resume, internships and projects. The questions asked were more or less a mix of Technical and Situation based. Questions related to OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities, Attacks and Algorithms were asked. I was asked to design an algorithm such that for every name entered, it generates a different unique value (even if two people have the same name). A question on Identity and Access Management was also asked. There was a provision to write code if the interviewer asked to do so. The overall experience was moderate and I cleared the interview.
Round 3: HR Interview
This one was a telephonic round and a certain employee from the EY HR team contacted me. The round lasted for 5-10 mins. I was asked about my academics, interest, certifications and location preference to work.
Result: I was SELECTED for the Job!
