ARICENT PAPER ON 19th JULY
hi this is sunil kumar garg from national institute of technology, jamshedpur . today i m going to share with u mine experience of aricent campus placement
first of all i start with written test........there is no negative marking.......u will get every section separately..........mean u will get first one first n before completion of its time u will be given
next one....n u will be asked to stop first one a do next one.....one thing i want to tell......this process is really pressure creating....n u will have to be calm n cool
some of ur section may be screwed up but don,t screw paper next to it.......u have to qualify only in screwed up paper.
Section 7: E-mail writing:
in 5 min u have to read question as well write the mail on certain condition. mine condition was............
there is a cloth show room.........which pay back amount with in the 3 days of purchase....a lady asked to refund the amount after one week..........
u r manager of showroom and u have to write apology mail to her.
Section 6: Comprehension
u will be given one comprehention most probably on some technical issue.....i was given on sso.
it will be followed by 10 question.
In my coll question n comprehention was given together but question may not be given with comprehention.
first of u will have to read the comprehention n then u will have to answer that question without looking back to ur passage.
Section 5: C or C++ (choice is urs)
i have chosen c n kanitkar book was very help to me........if u want to qualify.....
u have to be very good in this section.
question were on increment operator decrement operator.......pointer......variable passing to function........array......enum....structure.....file.
question was very basic.........go through objective book of kanitkar.....u can,t do without it.......u need a practice.
Section 4: Operating system, data structure and algorithm
frankly speaking......i m very good in data structure.......but it is not worth will to attempt it first......as it has long cords and u have to find o/p
or error......attempt operating system first and then algo......
If u will go for data structure first u will certainly get screwed....have a good concept of operating system......
Section 3: Mental ability.............
It was damn easy.........u have to score a good marks in it.....if want an edge over other....practice more through....any marittrack paper as of accenture or ibm.
Section 2: Analitical ability......
don,t mess up with a particular problem........u can,t solve all....just chose easy one and do it
because of time limit u can,t do all....so why not to attept easy one. practice ibm or accenture paper.
Section 1: Verbal ability
practice.......articals n preposition.......don,t take it easy.......smtime it may screw u.
u may think that u have screwed up ur paper..but dont give upbcoz every one have done the same.
now it is time of interview..
panel was very cool.doing everything themselves.very down to earth.
I was first for interview.The person who was taking interview come outside n escorted me to the interview table.
I wished him.he asked me to give an introduction of myself. Meanwhile he was seeing mine profile..from up to down.for that I was ready..n u may say it ws my luckI had a lot of certificate to show.
He was very much impressed..He asked me about my different subject from first semesterfrankly speaking I was frightened..i couldnt tell him. Who rememberwhat is chemstry and mechanics.
But suddenly he stopped asking all that. He asked me the difference between unix n linux. I screwed up..
After that he asked me about mine favorate subject..i told computers networks.
He asked what it isI defined..
He told me to draw a network.i draw an hybrid one..he asked me about token ring.i answered satifatorily.then he came to different layers.asked different function of allthen why tcp/ipwhat it isif not then what..i answered satisfactorily.
After that he asked me to write a program of factorial that compile in first go without any warning or error. I did with for loop. He then asked me to write with recursionI did..
Consider all condition of negative and positive. Never sckip up any condition.
After that he came to operating system and asked about interrupt..described it to his satisfaction including all taking from interruption handling n mode switch n context switch.
I was relaxingsuddenly one member came from came n asked me to follow him.
After going into the room, he told me that he will talk more on programming .at that time I was really scared..bcoz I was acpecting hr. he gave me a program to write.
Conditin was as follows..
U have to take one number from user of integer type. It is of 32 bit and u have to count the number of 1 and 0 in it. I did it..it was a good programn u cant do it without practice.so if u want to get into it..practice programming on paper not directly on moniter.bcoz writing code on paper is really tough.
After that he asked me question on unix.a senario created that make me laugh today itself..
He asked me that u dont know unix n want to learn itwhat u will do it?
I told that first of all i will purchase a book n try to read it.if find any difficulty then consult to faculty then to my senior. He told me that let u dont have any of this thing then what u will do? I told that I will use my internetwill go to google and type unix tutorial..he startes to smile..then he asked me that do u know what a MAN is?
I replied the appropriate answer..that it is a command to know about a particular command. He told me that cant u use it..that time I told him thatsir u told that u dont know unix.then how I will able to use itn my comp may not have unix install in it..he started to laugh..he was impressed.
Then he asked me about..networking(tcp/udp/ip), message passing in operating system..mine second round of tech was superb.
Then after 3 hours I was called for hr.asked me about mine backgroung and mine family backgroundit was 4th company in my campushe asked me about any offer from other company.i told him that I m sitting for campus interview for the first time. I didnt appear for any other company.he was shockedhe asked reasonI repeated the same lines what he had told in the ppt 2 days before campus.
Then he asked how u can take such a risk to leave all other company.i told that I was a bit confident..that I will get through this exam..then he told me that u r not.u have done so bad in ur technow what u will do nextI told that after result declaration I will get feebback from u and after improving myself on certain areas I will apply for off campus if not selected from this campushe was very much satisfiedthen he asked me about mine preferable location to work bcoz I had left that column blank in the form what they had given.i told thatas gurgaon, chnnei and bangalore all r new to me..i dont mind working anywhere as I have to explore any of these citieshe told me thats ok.
