General Electric (GE) | Campus selections for EEDP program
Seventeen members shortlisted after the initial online test, all from computer science dept.
The online test consisted of four sections: Qunat, Aptitude, English and two easy coding questions. (I don’t exactly remember the questions, one was on dynamic programming and other on string manipulation.)
Round 1: Group Discussion:
17 members divided into 2 groups of 8 and 9. Our GD topic was ” Merits and Demerits of Cloud computing vs Premise computing ”
Part 1: Each member gets 90 seconds to project their ideas and thoughts.
Part 2: Each member has to declare which one would they go for among the two, and provide three bullet points why would they support it.
Part 3: Three minutes of an open round to counter others’ mistakes and trying to correct them.
They were looking for some confident communication skills and how a person would contribute valid points to the discussion.
Result: 8 shortlisted.
Round 2: Technical Round:
The first thing he asked after I took my seat was ” What’s with you!?” with a grin on his face. I sat blank for a second and the best I could come back with was “What’s with me?… Likee??”. That felt like the first nail to my coffin.
Questions from the resume, about previous projects.
-My intern was in Machine learning, so he asked me to explain CNNs and about their cost function.
