The result was out within a couple of hours and fortunately I got selectected in this round as well.
Group Discussion Round
This round was eligible for those students who manage to pass the online written test.In this round, all the participants were divided into groups, and each group was given a topic. The topics were mostly related to everyday activities and events prevalent around society.
Face to Face Interview Round with the HR
I found this round exciting and interactive at the same time. At first, I was asked about my skills and interest domains. The questions were based on team working and communication skills. Along with that, I was asked about the knowledge I have in terms of CGI and the background of the firm. Logical questions were then asked, including knowledge about C, C++, and Linux.
After selection, the offer letter was handed over for one-month training in a week and joining letter was given after a month, after reviewing my performance in the company.
