Group Discussion Round

Those who qualified the first round were selected for the second round, which was GD. Good communication power, convincing and leadership skills were tested in this round. All the candidates were given a topic to speak upon. They were required to provide their opinion on the topic. I chose to speak at the last position and though my convincing power I impressed the interviewers.

Technical Interview Round

Seeing my GD round the interviewer did not ask many questions to me. He asked me to give a brief introduction about my final year project and my role in it. Then he asked me a few questions to check my basics with a palindrome, Fibonacci series, circular queue, complexity. I answered the questions with full confidence. I cleared the technical round and was selected for the HR round.

HR Round

The HR asked me a few questions about the company. Later he asked for my resume and asked me to introduce myself till he was going through my resume. He was checking my confidence. He asked a few questions such as, what are your expectations and future plans, the reason for joining Virtusa and many more. The interview went well, and I cleared my first interview with Virtusa.
