SIRIUS CAMPUS PLACEMENT EXPERIENCE Round 1 (26.6.2018) (450+ people Approx) The first round was a written round with 60 Questions from the following topics to be completed in 60 minutes. It was an online MCQ test. Topics: 1. DMBS 2. C 3. JAVA( Inheritance and Collections) 4. LINUX 5. HTML, CSS, JAVASCRIPT Speed and accuracy would count in this round. There was no negative marking though. Round 2 (27.6.18 ) (55 people) The next round on the next day was a Technical Interview. (One to One Interview) Being confident in whatever you speak would be the key to crack this round. Convince them in whatever you say and make sure it is correct. The interviewer was very friendly and greeted me with a fine smile and a handshake at the beginning of the interview. He was generous enough to make me thoroughly understand the question and gave little clues here and there to make me think in the particular direction to get to the right answer. Questions were mainly asked regarding the Area of Interest and Projects mentioned in the resume. Being thorough and to the point would certainly be a plus. Try to keep it short and technical, even if they ask â??Tell me about yourself at the beginningâ?? give a small intro and jump to projects and achievements. Being neatly dressed and disciplined would surely come in handy. (Find out the Palindrome in linkedlist). Round 3 (13 people) The third round was a programming round and this was the first time it has been introduced in this company and the time limit for this round was only 60 minutes. This acts as another round to help them eliminate people. This was not a computer based round. We were given a question paper and an empty cabin where we had to pen down our ideas and approaches for each problem. 2 questions from general programming were asked which were easy. { 1. find out pivot element from the given list of elements where pivot is the element who right side sum of elements is equal to left side sum of elements. 2. find out the exit in a given maze of 0's and 1's. i used backtracking and recursion to solve this. } 1 puzzle (12 coin puzzle) was asked. 1 bonus question related to data structure and process scheduling algorithm was asked. This was the most challenging question of the lot. Options to solve either the bonus question fully or the other 3 was given. I tried to quickly finish the 3 easy ones in the first half hour and then went on to do the bonus question. Although no one managed to completely solved the third question they checked how well we understood the question and how we tackled it. Also the choice of data structures we chose played a vital role in determining who to select for the next round. We were asked to explain our answers for all the 4 questions to random panel members and then finally the bonus question alone had to be explained once again to the Practice Manager in person. It was a good experience as he was very keen and attentive to know the approach everyone had used. Round 4 (6 People) The final round was again Technical Interview and there was no specific order to go into the room. They asked who would like to volunteer and I immediately got up in order to grab the first chance. This demonstrates confidence and gives them a good impression about you when you later say â??I actively take up responsibilities and leadershipâ??. The interview consisted of 8 members in total. It might sound scary at first however if you are familiar with what you have written in your resume and can confidently defend it, the entire process would be a walk in the park for you. They asked me about my favourite subject, to which I replied â??MATHEMATICSâ??. From that instance the next 5-6 questions were from mathematics. From equation of line and circle to finding the nearest point to a given line. Again answering everything correctly is as important as the way you take the question and try to think about it. I did not get the answer for the nearest point to line question however I tried 2-3 approaches like drawing 2 parallel lines to the given line and also drawing a circle around the given round. Interviewer: What is your preferred area of interest ? Me: Sir, OOPS and Data Structures. Next round of questions were undoubtedly from the above mentioned topics. Some of them were moderate whilst some of them were difficult. However they noticed how many and what all approaches I used to tackle it. At a point of time I couldnâ??t get the answer to the given problem and I asked if I could get another question. To which he did give another question and I was able to solve the next one the same way they expected. There were instances where all of us had a light laugh, but one must not get carried away and get back to the task at hand. One of the projects I mentioned was the Smart India Hackathon 2018 problem statement to which the interviewer asked me if I could draw a schematic of the idea on a piece of paper while other 5 people were yet to give their interview. I immediately took up the task and went outside and started to recollect the workings in order to get the schematic on the paper. It took a good 2.15 hours of time for everyone to finish their interview and I thought they might forget to ask me for the diagram. To my surprise the last person who came out of the panel after his interview informed me that I have been called inside. I went inside and presented the schematic and was explaining the entire project when the Practice Manager asked to stop and told me to wait outside. He did greet me before sending me outside saying it was nice talking to you Dhananjay, please wait outside, We will get back to you. 10 minutes after this all the 8 panel members came out with 2 resumes in their hand. It was the most crucial moment of the long day which started at 7:30 AM and finally at around 9:20 they announced 2 people have been selected. Me and another person from VCET Madurai. It was the best moment of the entire day. But it didnâ??t end here. They called both of us inside the panel room again and informed that one has been given an offer whilst another has been given an internship. This again caused a feeling of distress as to who would get what. Both of us were puzzled as to what will happen next. Then the manager asked us to ask each other a very difficult question, such that the other person canâ??t answer and gave a condition. Whoever wins the question game will get the offer and the other person would get the internship. So I quickly took the opportunity to ask him a question which would definitely have a diplomatic answer. I asked him if u choose to take the offer how would you justify it. At my question everyone broke out in laughter and the manager whispered to me that it was a smart question. We gave out point of views as to why we should get the offer and not the internship and at last they revealed that they were only teasing us and both of us have already been given the offer. They handed us our offer letters enclosed in an envelope. At last both of us were elated and signed out offer letters. This is how my placement happened. I feel at the end of the day the way we present ourselves and how much homework we do to justify our actions in the interview matter the most. Also this was a result of the enormous amount of guidance of several teachers and friends and the will to repeatedly try and try till the end.
