||BE in Electronics and Communication
||Deloitte is the brand under which tens of thousands of dedicated professionals in independent firms throughout the world collaborate to provide audit, consulting, financial advisory, risk management and tax services to selected clients. I was one of the lucky few to get placement in this good company.For the placement session, I had started preparing for two months back.
||Mainly I concentrated on random case studies found in the internet. Then I referred to glassdoor.com.
||I did not put any special efforts preparing for Group Discussion or any such thing.
|Eligibility criteria and students appeared:
||The GPA criterion was 60% and I was among 200 students who were eligible to appear for the written round.
|The Written round:
||The paper did not have many technical questions. Instead, it focused more on aptitude and verbal/ personality development questions. I was able to clear this first round.
|The Group Discussion Round:
||Then we had the group discussion. Each GD round had 6 students. We were given minutes to prepare for the topic allotted. We had to discuss business and consulting case questions.
||Next came the interview round (of course I cleared the GD!). Here I was asked simple C programs (Sum of all elements in a linked list. There were simple HR questions too like Tell me about yourself, Strengths/weaknesses, Why Deloitte?, Where do you see yourself five years from now?, Why consulting?, Why it consulting? and so on.
|Role of Internships and extracurricular activities:
||I personally felt that neither my internship nor extracurricular activities proved to be of any help for me. Well but all is well that ends well, and here I am!
