TCS Bhopal 12 October 2012
first of all prepare yourself for aptitude (in aptitude or written round each company having there specific topic which you search according with the help of previous paper and remember don,t waste your time in preparing the topic which they don,t ask in exam )
Aptitude round is much easier if u prepare well
One thing which is mostly every good student done in exam is that he attempt all the ques. correct that is also the reason of "overcut off" always some question ppr to average limit not attempt all the ques. attempt only those question in which u r sure =D don,t attempt the ques. in which u r in dough and before going for aptitude please also give some online mock test which helps you to reduce your heartbeat at the time of exam and also reduce your chances of silly mistakes
Now as u clear the written then the next step is your technical round then your HR round then if u perform not well in the above two round only then u get call for MR(managing round) otherwise 2 round id enough for them to check you
Don,t get hesitate or nervous this is natural to every one but control on it is not a typical task this can also be done by practice or meditation
OK as i clear the aptitude round then the next day at 13 Oct they call us for the technical or HR round
In technical they simply focus on your language skill and your project work and internship training so clear the basics of all these
As in my resume I have written the C language so they ask me to write the program of Fibonacci series (mug up the simple program of C if u mention the C language whether u r CS or any other stream) then comes the subject work which I mention the database which is also my favorite subject they as me to write the query on SQL how to create alter and modify the table in database they simply ask you DBMS ,ORDBMS and RDBMS or normalization so clear all these topics then they comes to CN which i mention in my resume they ask me simple ques on CN which is types of CN and why we use networking..
Don,t be quite say something which u know about the topic they just want to judge how you smartly done the work
Be loud so that the HR becomes able to listen what you are saying
Then comes my HR round
In HR , he ask me
Tell me about yourself
Then prepare a brief and precise a intro of yourself and prepare well in front of mirror you can also help your friend to take interview of yourself so that u know the mistake of your and you will work on it also take the help of your mobile phone by making the video of your and check your mistake
Once you start giving the intro if somehow u will stop then cover your 10th and 12th per. and family detail this will proof to be a good intro of 3-5 min which makes a good impression on interviewer
Then he ask some personal info of your tell each and every things
It is not necessary to be a true person just modulate your answer accordingly in front of him the only thing you have to do is to impress the HR so that he purchase you at any cost in which your study part is not matters
IN the MR round he simply ask for some tricky or crazy ques which is of just to check you so don,t get angry in giving the answer to that question
You have to only open all the ways to answer that ques HR will not expect you to give the exact ans to the ques but he only wants you to expect that how you better give idea to a problem if you are in the situation
Remember one thing that he is the person comes in your life to reduce your tension and offer you job so if he ask something which is person then don,t get angry on him he just want to check how u manage the things if it comes on your personal life. just enjoy the interview with great fun definitely you will get in this is my personal experience says thanks for spending a good time to prepare yourself for the campus round
