Student Interview

Capgemini India visited our campus for the on-campus recruitment drive. The eligibility criteria for this drive was minimum 60% in 10th, 12th, and graduation and no existing backlogs. Student appearing for the final semester can also apply. I am a final year student and was fulfilling the criteria. Therefore, was eligible to participate in the drive. The selection process had three rounds:

  1. Written Test
  2. Group discussion
  3. Personal Interview

Round 1- Written Test

The pattern of the test is as follows:

  1. Quants: This section contained some basic mathematical questions which I studied up to class 10th.
  2. Logical reasoning: This section analysed the logical and critical thinking power. I scored well in this section when compared to all the other sections.
  3. Pseudo Code: This section checked the fundamental knowledge about programming languages mainly from C, C++, OOPS concepts, Data Structures & Algorithm.
  4. Essay writing: This section checked the English competency. The topics given for this round were usually technology related or based on general topics.

There were total 53 questions and the time limit was 110 minutes. Overall, the level of the exam was easy for me as I had prepped using PrepInsta. They provide the best placement study material as far as I know. Capgemini conducted its online written test through Cocubes.

The sectional and overall cut-off for the written test was 70 percentile. Luckily, I cleared the cut-off and was eligible for the next round.

Round 2-Group Discussion

This round is conducted to analyze the student’s interpersonal skills. Our topic was “Impact of Social media on students.” They gave us ten minutes to discuss the topic. The interviewer was looking for the candidates who spoke more relevant points with confidence. At last, he gave us five minutes to conclude. Finally, total six students got selected for the next round, and I was one of the lucky six.

Round 3- Personal Interview

When I entered the room, I was little nervous but the interviewer made me comfortable by offering a glass of water. My personal interview round lasted for about 40 minutes. This was the last round of the selection process. The first question that interviewer asked me was “ which is your favorite subject.” Then, he continued with some basic questions and then led to some technical questions related to C, C++, .net, Data Structure, JAVA, DBMS, etc. Some of the questions were:

  1. Who invented C programming?
  2. What is the difference between undefined and not defined in JavaScript?
  3. What do you understand by Data Redundancy?
  4. What is an entity?
  5. What does your father do?
  6. What are your future plans?
  7. Do you want to pursue higher education?
  8. Can you work under pressure?
  9. What is your goal in life?

After answering all his questions, he asked, me to wait outside. At the end of the day, the results were announced, and I was selected. The only emotion I was going through at that time was of relief. All I wanted to do was to inform my parents.
