Hello Friends,I am Tapash Debnath from St. Thomas¶ College Of Engg & Tech. Cognizant came in ourcollege on 6th January. Now I will going to tell you what actually happened that day.
First Cognizant¶s Mr. Nilangshu Ghosal start with a very wonderful ppt at 8.30. At10oclock we are redirected to respective rooms where our first stage of selection processtook place. Usually what you have to do is just make sure you ready with the answers of following questions like your hobbies, your marks, strengths, weaknesses, what youexpect from CTS, and what are the skills you required to be successful in IT industry andlist the reasons why.
Actually you have to fill it up within only 5 mins and if you are not ready with youranswers then it will be difficult to fill and this one of the vital part because in interviewround you are just hammered on whatever you write on this paper. So fill it carefully.
Now in the aptitude round we have to answer two papers separately
1) Analytical (30 marks 30 mins)
2) Verbal (25 marks 30 mins)
Now for CTS you don¶t have to think much for aptitude. Because if you have basic ideaabout the aptitude questions then you will find it is very very easy. You have know theprocess of solution and R.S Aggarwal book is sufficient for this.
Now move into the Analytical part. In the analytical part I am surprised that there wasno quantitive question. First there was some syllogisms very very easy.
* Then some coding decoding very easy
* Some non-verbal series
* Match the problem image with 4 of the options, which one is same with the problemimage.
* And a Data interpretation question
It¶s the easiest question I have ever seen but what is constraint is time. Try to solvefast. Now moving to the Verbal part, there was only 2 passages and rest are all sentencecorrection.
Though its easy if you are from English background but It seems little bit tougher for meas I am from WB board. Though you don¶t have to worry because in CTS clearingaptitude is very easy because their cut-off marks very less. If you get 7 out of 25 youmay have a chance to clear that paper also.
In reading comprehension there was one passage on higher education in Mther tonguewritten by Mahatma Gandhi and another one is on women workers on factories like that.First one is little bit small and latter one is huge.
Now after clearing aptitude round we will redirect to you respective panels whereindividual panels will take your interview. In CTS interview round may be crucial as youhave to answer very consciously so that interviewer may not trap you and don¶t get inany controversies and don¶t show any of your weak points.Like if you are not from CSE or IT and if have been asked a question on C or datastructure. Don¶t ever tell them that you don¶t know that tell them I knew that but forthe time being I can't remember it.And don¶t try to bluff infront of him because they are very experienced and you will beeasily get trapped. Now another important note. Don¶t go by any of the candidatesexperience, because what your panel will ask you completely depends on that particularpanel. For instance in some of the panels in our college only technical questions areasked and in some only HR questions are asked.
May be your interviewer disturbing you by speaking Bengali (what happens in ourcollege) but don¶t break your streak. Speak only in English because they are justchecking your rigidity.
And you have keep eye contact with your interviewer and keep smile in your face anddon¶t loose confidence and don¶t get panicked. One thing you will realise that HR personsare usually very friendly and they will make the environment such that you will not getpanicked. In CTS all the panels are very young and very very cool so feel free.
Now here is my interview.
Me: May I come in sir.
HR: YesMe: Good evening Sir
HR: Good evening. Have a sit.
HR: So tell me something about yourself Tapash?
Me: Told
HR: And what your father do? and your brother?
Me: ToldHR: So you know C?
Me: little bit Sir
HR: Ok write any C program and explain it.
Me: I have written a very simple program and explained.HR: You are from electrical field then why you want to join IT?
Me: Told
HR: Ok tapash did you know functions and pointer?
Me: Little bitHR: Ok. Tell me what is every function is called by someone then who called mainfunction?
Me: Told
HR: Good.
HR: Now tell me what is what compiler does?Me: I have tried but not able to give exact answer
HR: OK can you tell me what is recursion?
Me: Told
HR: Write any program using recursion and explainMe: I have written the program of factorial and explained.
HR: Do you want to ask me any question?
Me: Asked
HR: Do you know my name is also Tapash?(Coincidently the name of the interviewer is also tapash and I have already seen it in hisid)
Me: Yes sir I have seen it.
HR: (Smiling) ok thank you Mr. Tapash Debnath.Me: Thank you sir.
Believe I am just surprised that I have not asked an single question on electrical orregarding my project
Our result was announced on 7th and I am selected.
