Student Interview Experience
HCL is amongst the best place to work and begin the career. I came to know about this opportunity from some of my classmates. I applied for the interview on the HCL website. Dates for upcoming HCL tests can be easily found from the website so that you can have ample of time to prepare for the interview.
Fortunately, PrepInsta prepped me for nearly all the types of questions which can possibly come in the HCL test. I had to first clear the written test for getting selected for the further rounds.
HCL – Written Test
The HCL test was 65 minutes long where I had to crack 5 sections of questions related to Quantitative Aptitude, Logical Reasoning, and Verbal English, Computer Programming, General Knowledge. Some of the high weightage questions related to the above topics are discussed below:
||Number of questions
I cleared the written test round and then i went for a group discussion round. In group discussion round we have given a particular topic on which we have to give our opinion.
Points to be remember during Group Discussion-
- Improve your Communication Skills.
- Either strongly agree with the point or Strongly disagree the point. Never get confused about your opinion.
- No Aggressive Move.
- Be relevant.
Ater Group discussion i was selected for the final personal interview round. The panel was consisted of 3 members. The HCL interview round is divided into two sections. The two rounds were -
- HCL Interview- Technical
- HCL Interview- HR
HCL Interview- Technical
I was quite nervous during HCL Interview, because i hardly had any time to go through all the subjects and prepare for this interview round. I just went through basics of OOPS, other subjects, and also my academic projects.
When i entered in the room for interview, without wasting much time, the Interviewer looked onto my resume and asked some technical questions:
- What is router?
- What is Kernel?
- What is a thread?
- An overview about DNS
At the end of the interview he asked me questions regarding my final project. Some mentioned questions were-
- An overview of project
- What made you to choose this project?
I was not prepared for the interview well, that's why i was not very confident about the interview. And at the end the HCL technical round didn’t go that well.
HCL Interview- HR
The HR Manager of the company asked me some basic questions-
- what I know about the HCL ?
- why I want to work here.
- Later he asked to define my skills and requested me to introduce myself.
- He then asked me about my expectations as well as future plans. I
- f it is feasible for me to shift to another state.
- The HR interview went well.
But when results were declared i was not selected in HCL because of the Technical round, as i have'nt prepared for the technical round.
Nevertheless, it inspired me to prepare well and come back with more knowledge and confidence next time.
