Infosys Interview Experience with cracking tips and interview winning strategy for coming campus placement interviews.
Campus Placement Interview is one of the strong memory which last forever. Here’s one success story and winning interview tips which helped crack Infosys Interview during campus placement.
I had an amazing experience in Infosys. The experience with this organization has prepared me for the challenges ahead in life. But to land up as a system engineer in Infosys was also a challenging task for which I fought tooth and nail.
So the journey started like this:
I was a 4th-year student in a college in Karnataka. And Infosys was a promising recruiter over there. So as all other years, Infosys was again on our campus.
We had a 2-day process: On the first day, we had an aptitude test, that entailed aptitude and verbal ability questions. It was a screening round; not everyone proceeded to the second round.
On the 2nd day, we had interviews scheduled for the students who successfully went through the first round. And I was one of those successful students.
Though I don’t have good memory retention, here’s a transcript of my interview as far as I can recollect:
Me (knocking and sliding the door): Can I come in?
Interviewer: Yes, sure!
Me (in a nervous state): Good morning sir.
Interviewer: A very good morning. So, how are you?
Me: I am excited as well as nervous.
Interviewer ( with a smiling face): Why excited and why nervous?
Me: Excited because I am sitting here for an interview and nervous because I am sitting here for an interview ( I am a sarcastic person, but I don’t know why I said this during my interview)
Interviewer ( started laughing which assured me that he was not there to devour me): Oh, I liked your statement.
[So, hereafter interview was more of a conversation. Since I had a computer engineering background, he probed me for my technical know-how and asked me questions on computer languages like C, C++.Admittedly, my interview had a blend of technical and HR questions. I was asked that being from a business family why I want to get into a job, or why I can’t be an entrepreneur – to which I asked that first I have to equip my knowledge that how the business world works, what are the skills needed to lead a business and so on…]
