Job Interview, Questions Paper
Company Name: IBM
IBM was a dream come true, golden opportunity for me
The Procedure was Divided into Two Days.
- Day 1: Online Aptitude Test, Online English Assessment Test:
- Day2: GD, Technical, HR
Aptitude: Divided into two Sections.
Section 1: Number Series
I have few questions with me which I had scribbled on my rough paper.
- 1/3,1/2,1/4,2 1/3,3 1/2, 4 1/4, 4 1/3, 6 1/2,?
Section 2: General Quantitative Questions
were 15 questions and we had about 2 min for each of the question. I don't
remember the question but they were of average. I am not very good at aptitude
but I found it good. So, it was surely an average test. You cannot skip any
question as otherwise you can't go back to the previous question.
Online English Assessment Test
We were given 22 questions based on voices, preposition,
sentence using, and some question related to documentation. For example, where
do you write introduction in formal mails and what do you write to address in
the business letter. It is very simple and related to the usual language we use
in the business letters and talking. No "ve marking and we were given 20 min.
for the test. You cannot skip any question as otherwise you can't go back to the
After that, we were told to leave. We got the reply on our mails and I got
selected for the next round.
Group of 10-11 was made and my topic was "Social n/w-
Stay connected on the go-on mobile. Other topic for another group was "Women
Empowerment. There were 2 judges and they were very friendly and made us feel
comfortable. Initially, there was a chaos in GD but later on, they asked each
one of them to speak individually. In my group, only one candidate couldn't make
through the next round. My suggestion for this round is that don't take the
topic in informal way. I didn't speak much but I told only relevant things.
HR + Technical: .
- Finally my name was called and it was the easiest round for me. The
interviewer was very friendly and asked simple question. Some questions
1. How was your day and how are you feeling?
2. Introduce yourself, Strengths, weaknesses, family background.
3. Technically, in which language are you comfortable with?
4. Any problem with relocation?
There was not a single question of technical or programming. Instead he
asked 1 question to check my analysis quotient only. Question was "You want
to know the number of bicycles in your city. What approach will you use for
it? He didn't wanted any calculation or code, just the approach used to
solve the problem. I gave 1 approaches:
#1 Check the Nationap population register and find no. of children and
labours in the area s this is the class of population which uses most no. of
cysles. But it will be a tedious approach.
#2 Divide the area in small regions and do the public survey.
And the interviewer was very happy with my 1st approach.
That day had nice sleep.
