The duration of interview per candidate was about 45min – 1hr. The interview was a combination of Technical + HR questions.
The interview began with a Tell me about yourself question.
The Technical Section was completely based on the project work I had done. I was asked a bunch of questions from SQL. There were Questions from JAVA related to the basic concepts of abstraction vs. encapsulation, OOPS concept etc. There were another set of questions on PHP since I had my internship based on that.
There were some questions related to my machine learning project.
The Personality Judgement Round was very interesting. In this round they gave me situations and I had to answer them in a STAR format using a background story.
Ques 1: Give an example of a time when you had to work with someone with a very different personality than yours.How did you handle it?
Ques 2 :Give us an example of a time when you had a project with complex data and how did you handle it?
The answer they expect is a background story in which you are the hero of the story and how dis you handle the situation.
After this there was a basic HR round with questions like
– Tell me about your strengths and weaknesses.
– Family Background etc.
20 students were selected finally.Over all I would say that the level of interview was moderate.You should be confident while answering and must have a thorough knowledge of every thing written on your resume.
Good Luck for your placements !!
