Personal interview guidelines

  1. 1. Personal Interview GuidelinesHaving witnessed the Personal Interview (2nd round) of forty-eight students out ofaround two hundred who appeared for the Aptitude test (1st round), I am writingthis write-up to emphasize on the sterling points to be remembered while preparingto appear for a Job Interview.The first and the foremost gateway is the Aptitude Test which I would point out tobe the significant part for acquiring a job in any company.Talking about Corbus particularly, this first round test consisted of 50 questionsfrom aptitude test portion, and 30 questions from the technical portion for which anaggregate of 90 minutes were allowed. Basware test additionally had a space inwhich the candidate was supposed to fill the details of the major project done.The technical portions of both the question papers touched almost every majorconcept of Computer Science. The questions were basically from the programmingconcepts & databases.After this, the second round was pretty unsure 7 unplanned even in the minds ofthe HRs. They first announced for the GD as second round, but changed it to PIlater on.While interacting with the HRs of Corbus, I learned that they were actually themasters of programming & had been married to it. “The person sitting over there isa Java addict. He lives with Java, and will die with it. I believe,” said an HR(pointing towards the one interviewing the Java background applicants).Their focus remained the basic concepts of the technologies the students hadmentioned in their resumes. Almost every interview started with the very basicquestions.Eg: • How can we make objects of a class? • Questions regarding basic RDBMS concepts. • Terms like multithreading, servlets, jsp, swings, j2ee, string.equals, etc.Basically, the questions covered the nook & corner of the fundamentals in theprogramming concepts. ©copyright Ankur Raina 2012
  2. 2. Personal Interview GuidelinesOne point worth noting here was that the projects remained the core focus of thequestionnaire. Communication skill was considered as an important part by theHRs, but technical knowledge remained the first preference.Besides this, I found that the psyche of HRs remains mystery until he/she utters itout. It changes with time, mood & the person. Eg: 20 students from Baswareinterview were eliminated just because of not having a good hobby. So, a personshould try to minimize the loopholes in his/her resume & words.To put the entire story in just one sentence, I would say that a person appearing foran interview should keep the basic concepts very strong, and the focus should beshifted from the quantity to the quality.Ankur RainaVolunteer (CRC Team)BRCMCET, Bahalwww.motleydata.blogspot.comwww.poetrypoem.com/ankur ©copyright Ankur Raina 2012
