Cognizant interview technical and hr.

Recommended Posts

Hello friends :mellow: ,

I would like to share my interview experience wrt cognizant with all of you so that this post would be helpful to at least few of you.. :rolleyes:

 

Step 1: Applied for the post in the website WWW.careers.cognizant.com .

 

Step 2:One fine morning while i was checking my mails i got a mail stating there is an aptitude test on 3rd October in Hyderabad.I went to attend the exam in a school(st.patricks) near Hyderabad.

 

There are about 1000 members who attended the exam for the whole day..

 

Aptitude, english and some self assesment questions were given.

 

*Aptitude:rs agarwal was more than enough.(i prepared more on profit loss percentages.....nothing of that kind was given bit easy but more logical)

 

*Reasoning:General reasoning,bit preparation would do.

 

*English:I felt bit tough,more confusing but...

 

*Self assessment: strengths,weaknesses,percentages in btech(1st 2nd........),future goals...etccccccccc

 

Step 3: I was quite confident that i will clear the exam so i was waiting for the mail.From chetanas blog somebody posted that we have to check the status from the website,so i did the same and i felt happy to see that i cleared the aptitude test and was called for an a interview at Auriga auditorium on 28th October.

 

I was all set to travel all the way on 27th October and they called me up saying that my interview was postponed to the coming week.I was shocked and felt bad too(as i was to cancel my tickets and left me with full of tension

) ;)

 

Step 4:I attended the interview of technical and hr on 3rd November at scheduled time.(my scheduled time was at 9.30 but reached there by 8.45 lucky enough i am everybody assembled y then and cognizant people started calling out names also by that time)

 

*My name was announced and i submitted my resume and waited for them to call.(Pls dont be late my friends one girl was not allowed as she came 15 mins late to the scheduled time)

 

*After few minutes they called my name out foe technical interview

 

There are about so many panels at the auditorium,everybody was sitting side by side(less distance b/w panels as it was a auditorium)

 

I was sitting with full of tension on my mind and confidence in my heart.

 

Somebody beside me told that they are asking to write a program and they are also asking questions on java.

 

I am from ECE so i feared of java a little(i did homework so i stood confident) <_<

 

Step 5:One person called up my name and assisted me to a lady.My heart started pounding harder as i thought lady interviewers are very tough to convince.

 

*she stabbed all my thoughts with a warm welcome smile.she is a total contrast of what i thought.she was very cool and she first asked me about myself and then she cross checked my answers from the answer script which she had with her.(The one which i submitted at my aptitude test)

 

*she asked me about my project,i took a paper and explained it well with help of a block diagram.

 

*Asked my marks list and then a few questions about my subjects and my project in detail.

 

*She added by asking what i know about cognizant(you have to prepare the about us column from cognizant website)

I answered well as i studied it before. B)

 

*She asked me few more questions about my strengths,few questions on subject and asked me to leave.

 

Step 6::After a few minutes somebody came to me and said i cleared the techincal round and will be called for HR.

 

*After a long pause i was called for HR round.

 

**The person was really busy and he started off with my self details and then he asked me my percentages as a rapid fire.i answered and then he asked whether i watch movies.In a hurry i was bit stumbling and as i started telling him he asked me another question very quickly.

 

*He asked whether i was willing to got o kolkatta if he gave me a chance to work there i said a quick yes..Thats it he asked me leave and wait for a mail within a few days...

 

My Hr round lasted for 5 mins i guess,right form that day i was eagerly waiting for the results..I am waiting eagerly waiting keeping my fingers crossed and praying for baba...hope you to will pray for me..

 

Suggestions:1.Prepare all your academic subjects(basics)not only the software subjects but also the technical ones.

2.Prepare to write programs

3.Be confident and tension free,answer every question right away.dont search for the answers(be spontaneous)

 

 

ALL THE VERY BEST TO EVERYONE OF YOU....

Thanx for the information, It is helping me a lot in my preparation. 

for best interview preparation tips i found these blog given below: 

1. RESUME:

A resume is the primary tool to land a job. Create your resume as per the job profile the organization is putting forth and underlining your strength desired for the job. Keep in mind a certain something, that the points you are specifying in it ought to be the ones, you are actually intended to. This ought not be ranting and not be false just to impress the hiring manger.

2. EMPLOYER INFORMATION:

Before going to any interview for any organization, ensure you know enough about the organization and you are ready to work in this organization. To achieve this, go through the company profile and the current position of the organization. It will help you to comprehend them and give you more confidence. So, invest efforts in this during your interview preparation.
