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: Here there totally focused on my projects, my resume, questions were asked based on that itself but in detail for about forty-five minutes. So, if you have done projects and done them 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 be answered carefully. Some other questions were like if I had 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, write with it for an hour to see how it writes, etc. They might also ask some sort of technical questions but not the ones that are not taught in college, for example, they asked me whether I had hands-on experience with Caman, so since I had internships I was about it. 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 internship experience, my prior interview experiences, 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, later became a mentor to general secretary. So these extracurricular rounds are very important because even though you might have a good cgpa but still communication skills matter a lot. Let me tell you, I gave managerial rounds in Tata digital and it lasted for an hour where I asked a lot of questions, even my HR round lasted for a long time. During these HR rounds they ask your question by giving you different situations and scenarios then how can we expect ourselves to answer such questions when we have not gone through such scenarios and this is when the experience you gain, the teamwork and leadership quality we gain comes to help while handling different situations in these societies. Next, our confidence matters too, I have given several interviews, I have taken a lot of interviews of my juniors so this helped to figure out what an interviewer actually seeks in a candidate.

Karan Jain’s Samsung Interview Experience

“Karan Jain” who was interned at “Samsungtalks 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: “Sidhant”

Profile offered: Intern

Job Location: Noida

Branch and Graduation Year: ENC – 2022

Cgpa Cutoff: Samsung did not say that there was a CG cut, but almost all students that got in were 9+ CGPA scorers.

Interview Difficulty Level: The interview was a 6/10; it was not very hard. (1-very easy, 10-very difficult)

Here are the questions we asked Karan Jain to know about his interview experience.

Question 1: Introduce yourself to our readers.

Answer: I am Karan Jain from Ludhiana. My branch is ENC(2022 batch). I was a part of the student council. I was not a part of any society, but I have played sports like table tennis. I have always been good at studies and even received a scholarship. As for my technical skills, I have done C/C++, python, and around placements, I started preparing well for DSA.

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: No written test

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: The interview’s main focus was on OOPs, C/C++, and DSA. They asked me a little about my projects. They didn’t give any coding questions as such, but they gave me a couple of questions and told me to explain how I would write the function for the problem. I was not required to write it but just had to explain it to them. These questions were not very difficult. Only 30-35 students were shortlisted by Samsung based on our resume to be interviewed in this round.

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

Answer: There was one HR interview. They asked me questions about the company and why I wanted to join it. They also asked me detailed questions on my projects, primarily application-based. They asked questions like, “why did you do this project?”, “How did you do this project?”. Other than this, there were some usual HR questions about my strengths and weaknesses. They also asked about my accomplishments. They appreciated it if you gave them a unique answer since they had similar answers from almost everyone. So if you can, you should try to answer in creative ways. Out of 30-35 students, Samsung selected 22 students for their internship.

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

Answer: CGPA cutoff was a significant factor. Other than that, you should know how to talk fluently, calmly, and be confident throughout your interview. Another important thing is to keep optimum eye contact since they observe these things.

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

Answer: You should start practicing coding as early as possible so that you have enough time to improve your skills. It is all a matter of consistency. You should maintain your CG above 8. You’ll be at a very safe spot if you’re able to keep it above 8-8.5, and there will be no company that won’t consider you. You should focus on OOPs and all their concepts like polymorphism, inheritance, encapsulation, abstraction since these are asked in great detail in all interviews.

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

Answer: No company prefers to hire a nerd. They want balanced personalities, and participation in societies and extracurricular activities shows that you are more than just your studies. In your interviews, 70% role is played by your studies, and the rest, 30%, is based on your extracurricular. I did not have any society in my four years of college, although I played sports or other extracurricular activities.

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

Answer: My advice would be to start basic coding at an early stage. You will never have the proper guidance about the right time to start working on your coding. So I would say that you should start working on your skills from your second year, and then you can take them to a better level in your third year. Coding is just like maths; you have to do it regularly.

After seeing the module, we had to fill out a google form which had 4-5 questions. Since this post was that of a content intern, we had to review their content. We had to tell them what we found interesting, where the module lagged in its content, and places where there was a scope of improvement. We had to give detailed feedback for all these 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 two rounds of interviews. There were no coding questions in the interviews.
Round 1: In the first interview, they asked me questions from my resume. I had mentioned a few projects that I had worked on, and they dug deep into the concepts I had used in my projects. They asked me if I was comfortable joining the company as a content intern since this profile was different from the software profile. They asked me to recall the answers I had given in my google form, and they questioned me on those answers. E.g., They asked me how we could improve the lectures that were a part of the module.
Round 2: This was a managerial round. They asked me about my interest, and I told them that I was interested in machine learning and DBMS. They gave me a situation that if I were a content creator for coding ninjas and required to prepare a course on these topics, how would I do it. They asked me for a course structure that I would follow such that the students face minimum difficulty. I asked them for a few minutes to prepare and then answered how I would start teaching them from simple basic concepts and slowly advancing to higher levels. They also asked me how I would resolve the doubts of students if there were any. The last 10 mins of this round were for basic HR questions.

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

Answer: No specific HR interview.

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

Answer: The key factors for my selection were my resume. Other than that I was calm and confident throughout the interview. I had prepared well for my interviews and they liked my answers.

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

Answer: You should prepare a good resume and add only those things that you’ve done. You should have good knowledge of all the things that you’ve mentioned on your resume. You can refer to some resume structures online. You should maintain a good flow in your resume to be easy to comprehend and visually appealing. Other than this, you should be thorough with the concepts of DSA, OOPs, DBMS and OS.

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

Answer: I was not a part of many societies; I was only a part of URJA, which conducted sports tournaments. Societies help you to make more friends and connect to more people. In terms of the interview, being a part of different societies shows that you are making an effort to communicate with people. This indirectly also shows your communication skills and confidence.

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

Answer: The main advice that I would give is that you are not required to focus on too many topics. Whatever you have learned in the past year, focus on those topics and revise them thoroughly. Don’t think about doing the topics that are left. Whenever a company comes, they hold a pre-placement talk. I would suggest all my juniors attend them properly since they talk about their future endeavors. They also talk about what kind of work the company expects from you. This can be very helpful as a deciding factor on whether you should sit for the interview or not. Making a good resume with a proper flow is also very important. You can add whatever you want to your resume but make sure you know it.
