|Package offered:||7.5-8.5 (BHEL) while Training|
|Preparations:||For me placement was a 10-15 days game. I have always loved studying and coding but yes paid more attention towards deep knowledge of subjects after failure in Intern test where I finally landed in CISCO and after that for me it was just a revision kind of thing.|
|Books Referred:|| For
|Websites Referred:||A lot of websites like – http://www.learncpp.com, cracktheinterview, techinterview, geekinterview and some for standard puzzles also !!|
|Group Discussion and PI preparation:||Nopes I didn’t prepare for GD and didn’t give any. But yes PI needs your knowledge and smartness both…Knowledge to understand the problem and smartness to interpret it in your own way… I gave almost 11-12 Companies’ interviews including Amazon, Microsoft, CISCO (for intern), RBS, Attrenta, Infoedge, Tally and finally BHEL! It seems to be awkward a person interviewing with such BIG S/w companies landed up in BHEL a ‘SARKARI’ naukri but that’s the DESTINY friends :) ..And after talking to experienced people and looking at my own priorities i decided to apply for a PSU which needs marks, knowledge and yess LUCK!! :) ..It was my 3 years effort only that made it possible for an IT guy to get a PSU!!..BHEL didn’t have any written round but other companies had and needed technical preparation|
|Eligibility Criteria:||i would advice keep your score 70+ and < 80 :P Students who appeared for BHEL were almost 130-140|
|The Written round:||It had core, aptitude as well as personality development questions.
I am here to give you a lil sight of all of the companies I appeared for.
BHEL – not much hi-fi tech , interest in microprocessor, projects and yes ready to relocate :(
for other S/W companies – faadu tech preparation and coding practice at topcoder, codechef etc. but then also be ready for any type of results :P :P
Banking Companies saying that they need tech knowledge – some puzzles, not much tech and yess ability to persuade the interviewer that your are right at the same time if u hv MANY marks den try tot hink of some solid reasons that you wil not leave (for not BIGGIES) but for BIGGIES u can expect anything so be prepared for that!!!
|The Group Discuss Round:||No Group Discussion was there.|
|Role of Internships and extracurricular activities:||Yes internships are always useful they give you a topic about which you can talk to the interviewer can impress him/her and if it’s some real-time project which could be useful for company it will always help. Moreover internship is to learn!!
Reagrding Extra Currics, yes I think in my case I had to prove the people that am indulged in such activities and watch cricket too :P :P ..But yes extra co-curricular activities shape your personality as an individual and also help in being the part of a team :) :)
At the end I would say just do your work companies will come companies will go.. You just try to give your best and expect the least :) :) All the best to those who are going to read this :)
