GD was not part of the selection process.


There was only one round of interview and very few technical questions were asked. The interviewer asked me basic HR questions like:
1.Tell me about yourself.
2.Why become a software professional.
3.The skills required to b so.
4.project done etc
5.what is a flowsheet.

The interview was quite easy and just had to be dealt confidently.


This was my first interview and I was quite tensed about it. But it turned out to be a great experience for me. The interviewer was quite friendly and didn’t ask me any technical questions.The interview was for just 10 mins and I was told that the result would come out in the evening.


Confidence is the key. Be confident in whatever you say and don’t take much time about it. If any answer is not known just tell d interviewer frankly about it. Don’t write anything in the resume that you are not sure of and always try to maintain eye contact.

As for the aptitude test, there is no special need for preparation. You can crack the aptitude test if your vocab and English grammar is decent. They just check whether the individual is fit for the job and whether he/she can communicate well. ALL THE BEST.
