Here are the questions we asked Sahil Kadiyan to know about his interview experience.

Question 1: Introduce yourself to our readers.

Answer: Hello Everyone! I am Sahil Kadiyan. I am from Panipat and pursuing engineering from the COE branch of Thapar Institute. I’m a programmer working to understand better how can a piece of code made the life of humans so easy, and aiming to implement DSA in real life. I enjoy generating new ideas and devising feasible solutions to broadly relevant problems. I’m seeking opportunities that will allow me to develop and promote technologies that benefit humans. Moreover, I am a front-end web developer and love creating websites. In my free time, I like to play badminton, and helping people gives me immense happiness.

Question 2: Describe Your written test experience specifying the number of rounds, details of each round, and type of test platform (online – amcat, hackerearth, etc / offline)

Answer: There was 1 online written coding round with 3 questions of DSA which was held over the Hackerrank platform. Then 2 technical Interviews and 1 HR Interview.

Question 3: Describe your all technical interviews specifying the number of rounds and details of each round (if any) (please share coding questions if possible)

Answer: In Salesforce, Interviewers judge whether a student has DEEP knowledge of a particular data structure or not.

INTERVIEW 1:
(45-50 minutes)
1 DSA Question(medium to hard), then questions related to OOPs concepts.
Introduction then provided the link for Hackerrank Code Pair and asked to solve a Coding question.
I like hashmaps, so I try solving questions using hashmaps as a priority.
While solving the coding question, there was a thorough discussion of all the approaches. My approach was different from theirs, but the final answer was correct, so all was okay! In the end, he also added a twist to the question and asked me to answer in 1 minute.
Then, there were all the questions related to Object Oriented Programming.

INTERVIEW 2: (Around 1 hr)
2 DSA questions: (30 minutes)
Easy question related to Binary Tree ( get diameter ) – need to tell Optimized Approach. They asked me to code from scratch, from making structure to the rest of the code. Asked thoroughly about Complete Binary Tree, Full Binary Tree, and their examples.
There was one more question.

OS questions (20-25 min): not simple OS questions like What is something? They were interested in knowing Why and How a particular thing works in depth.
DBMS: 5 queries( sub-queries, correlated queries)
Computer Networks: Basic questions related to OSI – TCP/IP Models and other concepts.
In the end, he gave me an Aptitude question as well: A numbers related Puzzle.

RESOURCES TO LEARN FROM:
I started DSA in my 2nd year but before that my basics were clear. I did Coding Ninja’s course.
My advice for you is: Purchase any course of Coding Ninjas or GFG. Abdul Bari’s playlist is also good. Don’t switch between the 2. Clear your basics first, then DSA questions. Consistency is the most significant factor in your learning.

Question 4: Describe your all HR interviews specifying the number of rounds and details of each round

Answer: I presented myself as a real Sahil Kadyan. What I do, what my interests are.
10-15 minutes for the introduction itself. They appreciated me for my book reading habits, so asked about my favorite author, favorite books, and what are the learnings from them.
He asked about my Failures and how did I deal with them.
I love playing Badminton. So, he asked me what will I choose if I had to choose between Coding and Badminton. Present examples that they are bound to get convinced by you.
Why did I opt for Computer Science? I replied, that I explored all the fields and was finally attracted by coding.
Why did I learn Blockchain? You need to be clear about your aim and why are you interested in a particular domain.
Why do you want to join Salesforce?
Don’t boast about your knowledge a lot. Be the real you while answering!
In the end, he asked me if I had any questions for him. So, I asked 2- 3 questions: What problems does Salesforce face?

Question 5: What were the key factors for your selection?

Answer: My command over DSA.

Question 6: What are the things students should focus on in order of priority?

Answer: Work and Parents
Work: DATA STRUCTURES then Development if you are interested & CS fundamentals

Question 7: According to you, what role do extracurricular activities as well as participation in societies play?

Answer: Societies do help in improvising your personality. I took a workshop on Competitive Programming, which pushed my confidence to speak in front of a large audience. We learn leadership and teamwork spirit. In societies, you do some projects with groups which will help you further.
But you should know how to balance your life. Don’t give more priority to society work. Give 70-80% to DSA in the 3rd year and 5-10% to societies.

Question 8: Any Other Advice you would like to give to your juniors?

Answer: Jo bhi karo dil kholkar karo!
And dedicate yourself to coding in the way that: “Kisi cheez ko siddat se chaho toh poori kayanaat use tumhe milane mai lag jaati hai”.

Question 9: How can we contact you? (LinkedIn Profile Link/Contact No./etc.)

Abha Himani’s Salesforce Interview Experience

“Abha Himani who is an upcoming intern at Salesforcetalks about her interview experience and some other tips to prepare for placement season. Check out what she says about the placement season.

Her Interview was taken by UnsaidTalks Interviewer: “Radhika”

Profile offered: Software Engineering Intern

Job Location: Not confirmed yet

Branch and Graduation Year: COE – 2024

Cgpa Cutoff: 7.0+

Interview Difficulty Level: I believe it was around 8. (1-very easy, 10-very difficult)

Here are the questions we asked Abha Himani to know about her interview experience.

Question 1: Introduce yourself to our readers.

Answer: Hello, my name is Abha Himani, and I’m from Ranchi, Jharkhand. Having come from a small city, this journey has been a tough but an exciting one. I’m currently in my third year, pursuing B.E. in Computer Engineering from the Thapar Institute of Engineering and Technology. I’ve been interested in technology and exploring different fields in technology since my 1st year of college. Along with that, you can find me reading Shayaris and listening to Ghazals almost every alternate day in the library, haha.

Question 2: Describe Your written test experience specifying the number of rounds, details of each round, and type of test platform (online – amcat, hackerearth, etc / offline)

Answer: It was an online assessment test on the Hackerrank platform. There were 3 questions, and I had solved 2 of them completely; they were focused on DSA only. We just had to write the code of the function given.
Only one written round was conducted. After that, we had 3 more rounds. 2 Technical and 1 HR.

Question 3: Describe your all technical interviews specifying the number of rounds and details of each round (if any) (please share coding questions if possible)

Answer: There were 2 technical interviews, and 1 HR interview (within a time gap of 10-15 minutes each, the interviews lasted about 1 hour each):
In both the interviews, they asked questions related to DSA and OOPs concepts. Salesforce asks questions of DBMS and OS as well, but they didn’t ask me.
They provided me the hackerrank code pair link, and I was supposed to be present on the google meet as well. They asked me to share my screen and code along with that. I had to explain the approach of my code side by side. The key to this is to – Think Out Loud.

Interview 1:
2 DSA questions and discussion of the entire approach with a lot of cross-questioning (tell the other ways of doing this, why this approach? how to make this approach efficient, time complexity, space complexity)
Q1: Array question: index of first and last occurrence of the number which is being repeated. (Explained brute force approach and binary search algorithm to solve the question)
Q2: Related to finding the nth even and odd term of the Fibonacci Series

Interview 2:
2 DSA questions and one OOP-related question where I was given the code, and I was supposed to give the output.
1st was the Leetcode easy or medium question of Stack, and another was related to finding if there was a unique frequency in the array elements.
There was a question about OOPs to tell a code’s output. During that, I had to explain all the logic (about virtual functions to resolve ambiguity, classes, run time polymorphism, and inheritance). It checked my complete knowledge of Object Oriented Programming.
Both the interviewers were quite friendly. They supported me throughout. At starting itself, they made me comfortable with the environment, so it was a good start already!

RESOURCES TO STUDY FROM:
Did Dynamic Programming from Aditya Verma. I had done striver’s sheet almost 2 times and a few more courses, including Sandeep Jain’s course of GFG, for a basic understanding of every data structure. Striver’s sheet is very important. All my 4 coding questions were more or less from the sheet itself. Do top 50 questions of CS fundamentals from Interview Bit.

Question 4: Describe your all HR interviews specifying the number of rounds and details of each round

Answer: HR asked questions on every topic, including a lot of brainstorming and technical questions as well.
Strengths, Weaknesses, How do I cope up with my weaknesses? Where I am from? : I am from Ranchi, which is not a very developed place, so I explained the exposure I got after coming to Thapar and how it helped me improve.
Do you like working individually or in a group? So, I told him the pros and cons of both things.
He asked me about my projects which I’ve done in a group or individually. I had 2 deep learning projects and one project on Web development: What Deep Learning is? Difference between Deep Learning and Machine Learning. What does my project do?
One of the most important questions during the HR interview was, Why Salesforce?
It was a nice interview since HR was very supportive.

Question 5: What were the key factors for your selection?

Answer: I feel Confidence was the key factor because everyone who had reached that round knew DSA well, so what makes the difference is confidence and being true to yourself throughout.

Question 6: What are the things students should focus on in order of priority?

Answer: I believe focusing on DSA should be your number one priority. Along with that, you can give a bit of time to revising CS fundamentals such as DBMS, OOP, and OS. Keep practicing on leetcode and don’t change your plans according to what others are doing. Make a concrete plan and stick to it.

Question 7: According to you, what role do extracurricular activities as well as participation in societies play?

Answer: I wasn’t a part of any society, but I personally believe that one should join a society only if you have an actual interest in the work it stands for.

Question 8: Any Other Advice you would like to give to your juniors?

Answer: I believe most of us are scared of reaching out to people and asking for help and guidance. There’s always someone who is ready to help you and guide you, you just have to reach out to them!

“Jatin Aggarwal” who was interned at ET Medialabstalks about his interview experience and some other tips to prepare for placement season. Check out what he says about the placement season.

His Interview was taken by UnsaidTalks Interviewer: “Akshita”

Profile offered: Digital Marketing & Analytics

Job Location: Noida

Branch and Graduation Year: ENC – 2022

Interview Difficulty Level: 7/10 (1-very easy, 10-very difficult)

Here are the questions we asked Jatin Aggarwal to know about his interview experience.

Question 1: Introduce yourself to our readers.

Answer: Hi! I’m Jatin Aggarwal, a Final year student of ENC (Electronics and computer) at Thapar Institute of Engineering and Technology, Patiala. From my school days, I had developed a passion for coding in C++ and never missed an opportunity to participate in competitions.
I choose ENC because you will get to learn about both the subjects, electronics and computers.
I love to connect with people from different backgrounds and thus build on my network. I love to play cricket, football and have an interest in marketing and analytics. So basically, I had hands-on everything that I could possibly explore.

Question 2: Describe Your written test experience specifying the number of rounds, details of each round, and type of test platform (online – amcat, hackerearth, etc / offline)

Answer: The test was conducted on the mettl platform. It consisted of 4-5 different sections and the total duration of the test was 1 hour.
In the 1st section, there were questions to check upon your logical reasoning and some questions to check your speed and accuracy of answering the questions (for example in a given sentence how many occurrences of a particular letter are there, find the odd one out, what figure comes next in sequence, etc.). It was basically a race against time. The duration of this section was 10 mins.
The remaining 3 sections were untimed and needed to be completed in the remaining 50 mins. Each section consisted of 10-12 questions each checking upon your mental ability, aptitude, english comprehension, analyzing and deriving information from graphs and figures in order to answer the further questions.

Question 3: Describe your all technical interviews specifying the number of rounds and details of each round (if any) (please share coding questions if possible)

Answer: There were 5 different panels of interviewers and we had 2-3 rounds of interviews, each one being an elimination round. Each round lasted for approximately 20 mins.
In my 1st round, initially, I was asked to introduce myself, then some questions were asked from my resume about my prior internship experiences and the mentioned projects. Then some rapid-fire questions were asked to check upon my speed and accuracy (basically checking my mental maths as I had mentioned that I had won in the national abacus championship). Some examples of questions asked include: factorial of 8, multiplication of 3 digit numbers, and some mathematical riddles, and each of these questions was supposed to be answered within 5-6 seconds. Then I was asked some HR questions like why should we hire you, why do you think you are suitable for this role, what is your expertise level in excel and analytics, etc.
Then in the 2nd round, again I was asked to introduce myself followed by questions related to mathematical calculations. Then some questions were fired at me which I had to answer within 8-10 seconds. These included:
1. If you have a cake and you are allowed to make 3 cuts, then what are the maximum number of pieces which you can obtain?
2. There is a cubicle room with an ant situated at one corner, so what is the shortest distance for the ant to reach the diagonally opposite corner of the opposite face of the room?
3. Some squares and cubes of random 2-3 digit numbers
4. A guesstimate question that how many tennis balls can be filled in an airplane?
Finally before concluding they asked some HR questions like why do you want to work with us, how will you rate your knowledge in excel and analytics part, etc.

Question 4: What were the key factors for your selection?

Answer: Firstly one should read the job description very carefully and accordingly mention their skills in the resume. Be thorough with the JD as to what the company is expecting from the candidates. Moreover, being calm throughout the whole process, from the online assessment to the interview, is very important. Also having a strong command over my mathematical calculations analytics part and thorough knowledge of excel helped me in acing this interview. Personally, I feel that one should have 2-3 seniors who could mentor them and especially boost their confidence during the placement season.

Question 5: What are the things students should focus on in order of priority?

Answer: Firstly you should focus on building your resume. Secondly, you should prepare the basics of OOPS, DBMS, and SQL and also should be thorough with whatever technology you have mentioned in your resume. Also for especially cracking ET Medialabs, one should focus on enhancing their logical reasoning, aptitude skills, and mathematical calculations should be on their fingertips.

Question 6: According to you, what role do extracurricular activities as well as participation in societies play?

Answer: I have been a part of many societies from my 1st year itself major ones being IETE Students’ Forum(former Convener), Youth United – Patiala Chapter(former Joint Secretary), and UnsaidTalks(COO & CTO). Personally, I feel that societies play a major role in your college life. They help you build your confidence, leadership skills, technical skills, and many more. In my second year, I was part of the UIP program conducted by UnsaidTalks, which I would recommend to everyone (although not publicizing it here) because it gives you insights into what happens in the placement room. If not part of any society directly, one should definitely try to participate in some competitions to gain some experience.

Question 7: Any Other Advice you would like to give to your juniors?

Answer: The most basic advice would be to remain calm throughout the recruitment process, and trust in your strength and ability to tackle the questions easily.
For cracking technical interviews one must focus on DSA, OS, Computer Networks, and DBMS. And for cracking non-technical interviews one must devote some time to solving logical reasoning and aptitude questions (trying to solve questions with speed and accuracy).
Lastly, utilize your college life efficiently and enjoy it! Do whatever suits you – means whatever you are interested in. Never take too much stress about anything – be it academics or placements or even relationships. Nothing is more important than peace of mind. Placements can never define your career. There is so much to grab in life if you are ready for it. 🙂

Interview Difficulty Level: 5 (1-very easy, 10-very difficult)

Here are the questions we asked Shivam Sharma to know about his interview experience.

Question 1: Introduce yourself to our readers.

Answer: Hi! I am Shivam Sharma, currently pursuing my Bachelor of Engineering from TIET in ECE. I am a coder and also the general secretary of IETE Student’s Forum, Patiala.

Question 2: Describe Your written test experience specifying the number of rounds, details of each round, and type of test platform (online – amcat, hackerearth, etc / offline)

Answer: The written test was taken on Hacker Rank. There were three coding questions, two of them were very easy, and the third one was easy but a bit tricky, mostly formula-based. There were also some MCQs which very were relatively easy.

Question 3: Describe your all technical interviews specifying the number of rounds and details of each round (if any) (please share coding questions if possible)

Answer: My Technical Interview was totally focused on my projects and skills mentioned in my resume. Mostly questions were asked based on projects itself but in great detail for about forty-five minutes. So, if you have some good projects done on your own then definitely you are going to crack it.

Question 4: Describe your all HR interviews specifying the number of rounds and details of each round

Answer: So, it was a panel of three. It was an HR+ Managerial round. First, they asked me basic questions about my strengths and weakness. Then they started asking me tricky questions which have to answer carefully. Some of the questions were like Suppose I have a pencil in my hand then tell us five factors based on which you will judge whether the pencil is good or not. So, I answered that I would check its grip, its nib for ductility/brittle, write with it for an hour to analyze how much it needs to be sharpened, sharp with the sharpener in order to check the material, building design, etc. They might also ask some sort of technical questions that might not be taught in college, for example, they asked me whether I had hands-on experience with Kanban? (Thanks to my internships), How familiar I was with other technologies like a flutter, react-native?, Then where do I see myself in five years and what do I expect from corporate life?.

Question 5: What were the key factors for your selection?

Answer: My Projects, My Internship experience, My prior interview experiences, and Self-Confidence.

Question 6: According to you, what role do extracurricular activities as well as participation in societies play?

Answer: In my first year I was part of ELEMENTOS in IETE, and later became a mentor to general secretary. So these extracurricular activities are very important because even though you might have a good cgpa but still communication skills matter a lot. Let me tell you, my managerial round in Tata digital lasted for an hour where I was asked a lot of questions, even my HR round in Samsung lasted for a long time. During these HR rounds they generally ask you questions by giving you different situations and scenarios then how can we expect ourselves to answer such questions when we ourselves have not gone through such scenarios and this is where the experience we gain, the teamwork and leadership quality we gain helps us while handling different situations in these societies. Next, our confidence matters too, I have given several interviews, and I have taken a lot of interviews of my juniors so this helped to figure out what an interviewer actually seeks in a candidate.
