NIIT : So will you consider your family as rich when your earning adds to your dad,s one ?

NIIT : So I can ask you questions from C ?
Me : Up to File and Structure.
NIIT : That,s enough. What is the difference between Structure and Array ?
Me : I explained it with diagram.
NIIT : Ok. Suppose I have put your name in a character array. Now you have to reverse it within it without using any other array. How will you do it ? Write the whole program.

NIIT : No.
Me : I wrote the program.
NIIT : Try to reduce the complexity of the program.

Interviewer : Ok now u can go and it is over , thank you…
After coming outside the room , i feel that if they r not looking for just DBMS and ORACLE then my iterview may be cleared. And finally our result was announced at 5:15 PM. I got happy when my name was announced at last..Really , that was my ever first achivements in my life.
I found that the NIIT was mainly loking for consistency, Communication, Confidence and ur basic knowledge .....So, be prepare for that, rest is ur luck and meet with us in NIIT.......
