Profile Offered: BTA
Cgpa cutoff: 6.5
Interview difficulty level: 4/10 (1-very easy, 10-very Difficult)
Here are the questions we asked from Japnit to know about her interview experience.
Question 1: Introduce yourself to our readers.
Answer 1: I am pursuing B.E. EIC. As far as the placements were concerned I always motivated myself to give my best shot whether it was the online/written test or the interview itself and never focused on the result. I was clear from the beginning that I won’t be able to succeed in a technical interview because of lesser efforts being put on my summer vacation. I have participated in a number of extra-curricular activities which made me more and more confident.
Question 2: Describe Your written test experience specifying the number of rounds, details of each round and type of test platform ( If online mention the type of test platform eg. Hackereart, CoCubes, Amcat etc).
Answer: There was online written with very basic Numerical Ability problems and Good Verbal Ability questions and Normal Reasoning part. The only thing to keep in mind is the test is that there is no negative marking but is adaptive which implies the level of difficulty changes according to your answers and simultaneously weightage changes ie if you answer all the questions correctly level of difficulty keeps on increasing and weight of those questions increases as well.
Question 3: Describe your all technical interviews specifying number of rounds and details of each round.
Answer: There wasn’t any technical round.
Question 4: Describe your all HR interviews specifying number of rounds and details of each round.
Answer: I have given only HR interview for Deloitte itself.
We had a Group Discussion cum Presentation round in which all the students were divided into groups of 8 and were given a case to discuss among ourselves and put the solutions while discussing on a chart paper and later on present it as well. It was an elimination round. After that, we had an interview which was mostly HR but a few interviewees were asking questions related to C programming(Very basic questions though).
My interview started with describing yourself and then a lot of questions on my Resume regarding my extracurricular activities. I had to justify what I learnt from them and how I implemented them in my real life. A few questions on my 6 weeks internship and later on why I didn’t go for Core which is the tricky part.
You basically need to convince that you are made for their company only .
Question 5: What do you think were key factors for your selection?
Answer: I was confident through my interview. I was honest with the interviewer. In my interview they asked me something I had no idea about, I didn’t babble anything but told them honestly that I have no clue. I could justify my extracurricular activities like mountaineering and Finance head of adventure club etc.
Question 6: What would you like to advise juniors for technical skills they should develop for this company?
Answer: If you want to go for Core companies, start studying your core subject asap. You guys need to be way more patient and Thapar doesn’t forbid us to try off campus so while the placement season is on in our campus. Don’t completely rely on it esp Electronics students. Try off campus as well.
Question 7: What would you like to advise juniors for cracking HR round of this company?
Answer: HR round is basically meant to check your communication skills, confidence,and a little bit IQ. Be honest , be humble, and try to make yourself interesting but do not lie about your extra curricular because it shows whether you have really done any activity or not.
