Question 3: Describe your all technical interviews specifying the number of rounds and details of each round.
Answer: There were 2 rounds of interviews (both being technical).
For the first round, there were around 90 students so it was an easy round. The only question I was asked in this round apart from some general questions was : “to reverse every k nodes of a linked list”.
That round was completed in 20-30 minutes.
Now for next round, they shortlisted around 30-40 candidates. This round was also technical and very easygoing. The interviewer was very friendly and also belonged to my hometown (this boosted my confidence). He asked me questions from every subject: DS, Algo, DBMS, OS, OOPS and also about my projects. The questions were quite easy. Some questions were: Print top view of a binary tree, remove loop from a linked list, slight variation of ‘Minimum number of platforms needed at a station’, DBMS select queries, Process vs Thread and many more like these.
