I am a student pursuing Integrated M.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering with specializations in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning at VIT Bhopal University. Recently, SAP Labs India visited our campus for a 10-month internship program. In this article, I would like to share my selection process and my overall experience for the internship selection.
The selection process consisted of four rounds, each assessing different aspects of technical and personal skills.
Round-1 (Coding Round)
- The first round involved two coding questions only. The first question focused on designing a database and populating it with data based on a given problem statement.
- The second question tested our knowledge of Data Structures and Algorithms, specifically a problem similar to “Divisor Friends.”
Round-2 (Technical Interview Round-1)
After two weeks, the results of the coding round were announced, and I was selected for the next round. In this round, which was my first technical interview at SAP Labs, I faced the following topics:
- Project overview, going into depth about my project work
- Abstraction topic in Java, discussing the concept and its implementation in my project
Clarifying doubts like whether private methods can be used in interfaces and explaining how to call abstraction methods
- Sorting algorithm time complexity
- Puzzle: Minimum number of cuts in a cake.
I provided detailed answers to all the questions, showcasing my technical knowledge, and was selected for Technical Round 2.
Round-3 (Technical Interview Round-2)
The second technical round involved in-depth discussions on the following topics:
- Introduction and overview
- Implementing binary search
- SQL question: Creating a database and finding the name of an HR belonging to the HR department. Here, they were interested in understanding my logic and approach. I applied the concept of joins and groups to solve the problem.
- Puzzle: Jug problem. I presented my approach, although it was not the most optimal solution.
Despite my lengthy approach, I received positive feedback, and after one hour, I moved on to the HR round.
Round-4 (HR Round)
The HR round was a relaxed and friendly interview where I discussed the following topics:
- Strengths and weaknesses
- Motivation for joining SAP Labs over other companies
- My biggest achievement in life.
After the HR round, I eagerly awaited the results and was overjoyed to find out that I had been selected for the internship at SAPLabs India.
My internship experience at SAP Labs India has been a transformative journey of learning and growth. The selection process challenged me to showcase my technical skills and problem-solving abilities. Throughout the interviews, I had the opportunity to delve deep into various topics, ranging from coding and algorithms to SQL and puzzles. The supportive and inspiring environment at SAP Labs further enhanced my learning experience. I am excited to be a part of the SAP Labs team and look forward to contributing to innovative projects while expanding my knowledge in the field of technology.
In the end, I am extremely grateful to GFG for providing me with the opportunity to share my experience.
