Name : iGate
: Fresher Job Interview, Question Paper
Hi friends. I am R.Rajesh Kumar
from Chennai. Currently i am doing my M.C.A (5th Sem) in B.S.Abdur
Rahman Crescent Engineering College, Chennai. I had my iGATE
interview on today(10-6-2008). Only by pure GOD'S GRACE, i am very happy
to tell that i got selected in iGATE among 29. I would like to
share my interview experience with you all. The interview pattern consists of 5
rounds (dont worry!, all are very easy). The first one is asusal "APPS".
The next "three rounds" were TECHNICAL. There is no GD
(are u happy now!!). The final round is "HR". So, totally 5
rounds. Let us discuss about one by one in detail now.
ENGLISH & APTITUDE
------------------------- They changed the APPS Pattern in this year 2008.
(i.e) before 15 Questions and cut-off is 10. But, now they
increased it to 50 Questions. Section A --- 20 Questions ---
English Section B --- 30 Questions --- Aptitude ***** Regarding
English ****** Passage(10),Articles(1),Prepostions(1),Tense(1),Sentence
***** Regarding Apps ****** Pls study only the follwing topics
1. Problem on Ages
4. Time & Work
5. Time & Distance
6. Profit & Loss
7. Train & Boats
Study all or atleast 5
throughly. RS.AGARWAL is more than enough. LOGICAL -
Conclusions, Analogy, Figure finding, ----------- Alphabets.
(all are very very easy).
----------------- Once you cleared the apps, they will call you for the
Technical. In Crescent, out of 400 (including SSN) 80 cleared apps. Technical
consist of three rounds. Dont worry, they asks only the Basics. Pls be strong in
DS,C and C++. Otherwise, its very difficult pa. Prepare an
attractive RESUME. My kind advice is " BE STRONG IN YOUR PROJECT!!!".
If u r having the project means, they will ask questions ONLY from
project. For me. they asked,
1. Tell me about yourself (be
strong in this Ques)
2. What is diff between C &
3. What is Cal by val. &
Cal by ref.
4. Tell something abt JAVA.
5. OOPS concepts.
6. What is Distributed Systems?
7. Atlast he asked me to write
"STRING REVERSE" program in C.
TECHNICAL - 2
------------------ Asked only about my project. For my friend, they gave one
simple puzzle to solve. Dont worry friends, its very very very very easy. Your COMMUNICATION
SKILL is must.Once u came to HR, almost u placed. HR --- The HR is a female
for me. She is very friendly for me. I am really telling guys, if i saw her once
again means surely i will fell in her leg. She asked,
1. Apart from ur studies, what u
will do at free time. (i said cooking)
2. Will u work for Night Shift.
3. Are u ready to sign the BOND.
(2 yrs BOND)
4. Are u ready to work in any part
Thats all, she said "You are
Selected Rajesh Kumar !!!". I flied in the air at that time. Chanceless
Moment that was...... They announced the result by 10.00 pm. This 10th Jume 2008
is an unforgotable moment in my life. At last they gave a wonderful RED COLOR
T-SHIRT for all containing the iGATE logo. SALARY - 2.71
Lacs/annum. Friends, u pls dont under estimate the salary. My personal
opinion is, it is very difficult to grow up in top companies like TCS, CTS,
Infy or Wipro. It will take nearly "10 yrs" to became a
Project Leader there. But, in the companies like iGATE, iFlex, Syntel
or any other developing companies it is very easy to became the Leader. They
will give promotions based on ur performance. So. try to place in the developing
companies.. For your kind info, the iGATE has constructed their new developing
center at CHOLINGANALLUR and they are yet to open.
