I was very nervous before the interview, as only the candidates who cleared this round would be shortlisted for the HR round. My cousin told me to prepare well for this round and be thorough with the resume. As I entered the cabin, the interviewer was seated there. He asked me for my resume. I handed over my resume to him, and he started asking questions related to C, C++, and database.
- What are linear and non-linear data structures?
- What is an inner join and an outer join?
- Write the logic of merge sort.

- Can you draw an ER diagram of the project?

The interview continued for an hour. I was hoping for a positive result. The results for the Technical round were declared, and I cleared this round and moved further for the final round.
After the technical round, I was quite confident for this round. I entered the cabin and greeted the HR. He asked me general questions related to my interests, career plans, etc.
- Introduce yourself?
- You had a gap of eight months after your graduation, what were you doing?

The interview continued for 15 minutes. I was asked to submit the Xerox copies of my documents for further verifications. After a week I received an email from IBM that I have been selected for the profile of System Engineer. That was the happiest day of my life.
