Technical and HR round.If you are an ECE student prepare DLD, Control System, DSP. If a cse student, MySQL, Programming languages, computer communication. Aptitude also. Start preparing Early.

Don't bother about the salary. Be in touch with your seniors for assistance. Hard and Smart work pays off. 

Vidhi Gupta, GET at Schneider Electric, VIT Vellore-ECE

The first round for AXIS BANK was an online test. The test was followed by a 1.5-hour interview. They had combined the whole tech+ hr bit into one interview. I was asked a lot of questions on my NLP project because it involved portions of data science.As far as HR questions are concerned, they are pretty much the same for every company that visits the campus. Sitting for placements can be taxing mentally, with a whole lot of rejections and "getting to the last round and getting disqualified", but choose your companies wisely. You need not jump to the very first opportunity you get. There have been various instances where people get trapped into the wrong company just because it seems too long into the placement season.

Akshara Khare, Data Analyst at Axis Bank, VIT Vellore-EEE

The process had 3 rounds in total. 1 written test, 1 technical interview and 1 HR interview. The topics they asked me were all related to my core subjects- Analog and digital electronics, Control systems, Power systems, simple programming on C, Microcontrollers and the projects and courses that I mentioned on my resume. Remember that many core companies do come and have good opportunities. So, if you want your future in the core sector don't rush and waste your time on preparing for IT jobs. Always remember that the first company you join should always incline with your area of interest. Do maintain a CGPA of 8.5 since a lot of times the first screening is done on CGPA basis. At last, have patience.

These things will get you through a Vodafone interview.Be confident and if you don't know the answer, don't beat around the bush, rather be frank. Also, while solving a coding question, narrate what is going on in your mind.

Be confident.

Srishti Rai, GET at Alstom, VIT Vellore- EEE

 

People were selected for the interviews on the basis of the resumes. They asked basic java programming questions. They also asked few aptitude questions. Mostly they were concentrated on my projects. My role here is mostly full-stack developer. And I had most of my projects related to that. You need not be a great coder to grab a super dream offer. Most importantly you need to show interest and be confident. Have a CGPA of 8.5 and above. That’s because you’ll have more options. Sooner or later everyone will get placed. Don’t stop trying.

Jigyasa, Associate Development Consultant at SAP Labs, VIT Vellore-EEE

Shortlisting was done on the basis of Resumes first. After that, we had 2 technical interviews. The topics they asked were IEM and SCM. You need to be strong with problem-solving. My advice is you should strategize your placement prep based on the company and the role instead of having a very generic approach. Talk to the seniors to understand what the role is and what it demands. Research about the company and its values.

Tushar Rajpurohit, Program Analyst at Cognizant, VIT Vellore-Mechanical

There was one online coding round, with 4-5 coding Questions to be solved in 2 hours. After this round, there were 3 interviews. The First 2 were totally technical and the 3rd was technical + a bit of HR. The most important topics for many companies are DSA, operating systems, DBMS and networking. In DSA, you should have a hold on dynamic programming, concepts like sliding windows, maps, etc. For operating systems etc, only theory needs to be prepared. No numerical needed. Be genuine to the interviewers, don't try to manipulate your answers or them. Be clear as to what you are confident on and what you're guessing. Have confidence in your preparation!

All together four rounds were there. First - coding, Second - Technical, Third - Managerial, Fourth - HR. You need to be thorough with DSA, OS, DBMS, Networks and have a proper understanding of projects. For coding, try solving 5-6 questions every day. GFG is the recommended platform. For Dynamic Programming refer to Aditya Verma's videos. OS, DBMS and Networks, refer to Gate Smashers videos. For interviews, It shouldn't seem like you're in an exam and just giving answers. Answer conceptually with examples and interact with the interviewer. Don't be nervous and overconfident. Communication matters a lot. Be yourself.
