US TECHNOLOGY PAPER ON 29th OCTOBER AT JODHPUR
All D Best 2 u all for ur campus. As I faced d selection procedure for US Technology Resources, i m going to describe it here for ur convenience. Mind It Tht this is NOT A BPO or CALL CENTER. Its purely technical company having a BPO section. Our interview was for software development.
Day 1: The very first activity by the company was PPT. The smart company persons presented their company. Each and every candidate was allowed to attend it.
After PPT, there was a written test for 90 Mins. having 82 questions.
Out of these 82 ques., 32 were of general aptitude, mathematics. For these questions, R S Agarwal is sufficient.
Another 50 questions were of Verbal ability, in which 4 looooooong pasages were given and questions related to them were asked.
Mind it tht these passages were not jst simple passages, these were to check ur thinking ability and ur direction of taking the problem.
But no doubt passages were too long even 1 passage was long as 2 A-4 sized papers.
the test held apprx. 1-2 pm. About 5-6 pm, the result was declared and apprx. 45% candidates got selected.
the next round was Group Discussion. this also held the same day. the topic for GD which we attended was
---Should Political parties be there in colleges or not?---
The mentor was totally devoted to checking the verbal ability of the candidate and no doubt leadership characteristic too.
A gud command on english and u can clear the GD if u r not having strong opposition.
Well, I cleared GD too. Now the next step was the interview. I can,t say it as purely HR or Technical Interview.
Day 2: The next day was sunday, bt company persons were there before the candidates. The interview was goin to be held 2day.
This was d most interesting interview I faced. I went to the interview room, which was having a glass door.
Through d glass of door, I saw in the eyes of interviewer with a pleasent smile. He also smiled in reply and here I got a half job.
Since we have made the environment very easy, I was not so much nervous. I asked him to come in and entered the room. May be a 7 yard
distance was der frm door to his table. He wished me GOOD MORNING, I said in reply GOOD MORNING bt after seeing watch, i founf tht I was wrong b,coz it was 1:30pm. Well A bit nervousness was der on my face as usual. Bt he noticed it and asked me
He:- R U tensed?
Me:-No, sir i m not tensed, but a bit nervous.
He:- Why? Is it ur fst interview.?
He:- So Mr. Sagar, tell me the FUNNIEST STORY of this world.I was really got shocked by hearing this. I never expect such question in interview. I thought for 5-6 seconds and suddenly replied with a cute smile
Me:-Sir, I M D SMARTEST PERSON ON THIS WORLD (with a real expression less face)
This was answer which decided the way of my interview. he smiled and appreciated
He:-Do u take ur task like this only?
Me:-Yes, Sir. I m always funny in my task but I always understand my responsibilities nd no doubt i m always dedicated to my work. But i never take tension
b,coz tension ruines our future, tension affects our result. If we keep smiling always then we and our colleagues both can work easily.
He:- Fine, tell me some thing about ur frnd circle.
Me:-Sir, we are 6-7 frnds who work together, study together and in free time enjoy together. we all are of the same type tension free mind. wherever we work we work together which increases our efficiency (showing capability to work in group)

Me:-Sir, actually learning is a life long process and we can learn any time, any where in this life. and frm frnds, frm colleagues they are d best erson frm whom we can learn while working. and so nd so..............
He:- where do u find technically urself among ur frnds?
Me:-Sir, as i think I M GOOD bt NOT SO GOOD, I M BAD bt NOT SO BAD (this quotation was told by the company person itself during ppt). tht,s y i expect om but don,t expect vry high. i a bit higher then my colleagues at technical level and a responsible person too. and wen i visited ur web-site company founder Late Mr. G A menon told tht " We give responsibilities, not order" and i m responsible person as told by my frnds, my colleagues and my faculty members. I m totally dedicaetd to my work which sometime become my weakness tht i even forget myself, my personnel life.
