Tushar Lakra

Name: Tushar Lakra
Course: BE in Civil Engineering
College: DCE
Year: 2010
Company: DSC Ltd.
Package offered: 3.45 LPA
Preparations: The real preparations for getting a good job started around three months.
Books Reffered: I paid maximum attention to subjects like Concrete Technology, Surveying, and Transportation engineering and Design of RCC Structures. For these, I referred Concrete Technology by Gambhir, Surveying by KR Arora. Also there were Transportation Engineering by Justo and Design of RCC Structures by AK Gupta. These were the books I went for at the last moment, each student may have his own favourite or the one he is comfortable with.
Website Reffered: You can and in fact should always get extra knowledge from the internet.  In fact, you must see a lot about the company; completely go through their profile, specifications, requirements, achievements, fields of work and everything.
GD,PI Preparations: Apart from these, I did not prepare for Group Discussion or any such thing.
Eligibility criteria and students appeared: The GPA criteria laid by DSC Ltd. was 60%. About 20 students appeared for the written round.
The Written round: The paper had Technical as well as Aptitude questions.
The Interview: There was no Group Discussion round. Instead there was an extempore. This was different!

After clearing the written round, came the interview. There were mainly Technical questions asked there. As far as HR questions were concerned, a simple general introduction was asked.

Role of Internships and extracurricular activities: I personally felt that the past internships/ trainings play no role in the selection. In fact, co curricular or extracurricular activities play a more important role in case of non core companies.

All in all, give it your best shot!
