Here are the questions we asked from Ritwik Khurana to know about his interview experience.

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).

Question 3:Key factors for your selection.
Answer: As I had prior experience of giving interviews because I had given a lot of interviews before and this was my 7th interview so I was confident enough. I had solved a lot of interview questions from Interview Bit and LEET Code so that served as an additional benefit for me because the questions which were asked in the interview, I had solved most of them beforehand. I had a good knowledge of OOPs so that also served as an additional benefit for me. One should be very clear with the approach to the questions because the interviewer may ask about the approach to the problem rather than directly checking the answer.

Answer: By taking part in extra curricular activities and societies, you improve your communication skills and you open up more because the students who possess good communication skills are more preferred for the companies and most importantly, students should join societies of their interest. In some companies, the interviewers also ask behavioral questions in which they give you any situation and ask you how to react or find the solution, so in that case, if you have been part of societies so you can act appropriately towards the situation because you have faced those similar situations in the societies.
