This article is based on my experience in the final year of my Engineering and how I prepared for the service-based companies and cracked their selection process. 


Many of you are thinking that what is so difficult in cracking up these interviews and the selection process of the service-based company. But, I think it is a big deal when you are from a Tier-3 college and from a Non-CS branch. 

So let us start, many of the service-based companies have sort of same selection process generally, they have the selection process like this: 

  1. Aptitude Test
  2. Coding Test
  3. Technical Interview
  4. HR Interview

Some of the companies have Written and Reading Skills Tests as well and some of them also have situation-based interview rounds. 

How to prepare for Aptitude Test? 

So to prepare for Aptitude Tests you have to practice problems on topics like:

  1. Time Speed and Distance
  2. Data Interpretation and Data Sufficiency.
  3. Profit and Loss
  4. Permutations and Combinations
  5. Data Arrangements
  6. Percentages and Clocks & Calendars

You can take the help of Youtube or you can solve Aptitude problems which are asked in Government Exams. 

How to prepare for Coding Test? 

To prepare for coding tests you should have a good grip on one of the Object-Oriented Programming Languages such as Java or C++. I would highly recommend using Java as it is slightly easy and I also suggest not using Python for these tests as it would not enhance your technical skills which would be helpful in Interview Rounds. 

I recommend using the GeeksforGeeks’ Practice Portal as it has many questions regarding Data Structures and Algorithms. You should try almost 20-30 problems of Data Structures like Array, and Linked List. 

If you want help from experts who knows what goes on behind the interview scenes in the top service based companies and how to ace interviews with ease, register for GeeksforGeeks’ Complete Test Series for Service-Based Companies where you can get uptodate mock test along with interview preparation by industry experts.

How to Prepare For Interviews (Technical and HR)? 

It is highly recommended to not only prepare for coding tests but also for Interviews. 

You can practice Interview questions by preparing from GeeksforGeeks’ Company Interview Corner and also for the HR interview you should have good knowledge of the company. On which projects the company is currently working on and also you should have good communicative skills. You can practice and improve your Communicative skills by reading books and also taking part in Mock Interviews in college and if not you can refer to Youtube to see the Interview Experience of a particular company. 

Also, I recommend practising code not only on a compiler but also writing the code on a blank paper because many times Interviewer asks you to write code using a pen and a paper.
