 INTRODUCTION 
 " Given with all the facilities would you like to work in a team or as an individual?" "Sir... as.... an individual" This was my answer when Infosys HR manager had asked me in my first interview. It'snot unlikely that you don't do such mistakes in your initial interviews and loose the goldenchances. Initially I didn't have even a rough idea about how the campus interviews areconducted, what they require, what to prepare, how to face etc. Those were my series of debacles, which taught me the finer tunes of the interviews. It took me around 10 interviews to finally cross the hurdle. I tell you 10 is a very big number. I only want that a capable candidate should not suffer because of his ignorance. I don’t want others to follow the series of failures as I underwent. Keeping this point in mind, I havetried to show the inner views of the campus interviews, which are also generalized for walk ininterviews. I have tried to portray my experiences, my approaches and the steps that I think are apt for one to succeed.Here my aim is not just restricted for the people to know only about interviews, but alsoto aim at improving ones overall personality.My special thanks to Mr. Syed Salahudddin who encouraged me consistently to take upthe project and worked parallely with me to finish this. I owe a great deal to the officer.I thank all my classmates and hostel mates esp. Mushtaq, Majid, Sawood and Nishant who stood by me and gave their full support and help.I request you to take these things seriously and read every time before you go for anyinterview. I also want this material to be forwarded to the people who could get benefited.These are just the views of one person, which might be wrongly interpreted also. So I want  you to meet experienced people and try to generalize the things. I wish all the best for your endeavours. Thank you.Sajid Ali Kalmani

1. SKILLS 
There are basically three skills, which are necessarily required to succeed in theinterviews.They are:1.Aptitude2.Communication skills3.Technical skills4.Attitude/Personality-this is transparent to candidates.(Candidates can lack one or more skills if they want the job by some shortcut means, but those who want the job fair and square, must possess all the above skills. You know what I mean). Let me consider myself a common man and tell you how I improved my skills. Then you can generalize them better.
1.1APTITUDE 
This is the first and most important step in climbing the success ladder. What’s aptitude? It’s ones ability to…, to…, leave it, I am not getting the definition. But let me tell you, aptitudeis nothing but the combination of your basics, brain power, knowledge, commonsense, speed,accuracy, intelligent guessing, anticipation, decision-making and above all the positiveapproach. Aptitude test is like a 100 metre sprint with the lane width of just 6 inches. Overall,aptitude is your logic. Sometimes it is difficult and sometimes easy (Kabhi Kashi Kabhie Rome).Some have aptitude by birth (they are natural puzzle solvers). They can easily catch uphow to solve numericals and analytical problems. They need to identify themselves and polishtheir approach. Others have to work like dogs. It took interest in puzzles when I was in 8
th
standard. That made me learn maths basicswell. Maths Olympiad training and exam made me go for puzzles with mathematicaapproach. My craze for puzzles continued to PU and till B.E. In 1
 st 
semester I became themember of mathemagic magazine, which publishes varieties of puzzles from literature tonumericals to chess puzzles etc. I seriously involved in solving them and sending answers tothe editor. It was only in the second year that I heard that there is a company Infosys that asksonly puzzles to recruit its employees. My happiness knew no bounds [patient keliddu mosaruanna, doctor heliddoo mosaru anna]. I wrote the aptitude test for over 15 companies and I don’t know the disappointment of not getting short-listed after the written test. Frankly speaking I never prepared for aptitudetests. That’s why I was seen playing cricket throughout my engineering. So I request you, not to look at me and decide that written tests are nothing. I had a friend who had 78% of aggregate and was good at everything but couldn’t clear written test for 15 companies. At last he cleared somehow and further path was easy for him to sail through. Let me tell you how you could improve your aptitude. First & second year students can go for puzzles. Buy puzzle books like Shakuntala Devi, George Summers, Narula etc. and try to solve them. If you don’t get the answer, then seecarefully the way the puzzle has been solved in the book. If you solve some 200 and odd  puzzles then you imbibe the approach to solve any puzzle. This improves your analytical
