INFOSYS PAPER ON 18th MARCH AT BHUBANESWAR
Hi to all Freshersworld readers, I am Abhishek from Orissa Engineering College. I would like to thank to freshersworld first as for giving us opportunities to write our experience in our campus selection. I hope I am the first person as a freshersworld columnist who is sharing his failure experience in the campus selection. But failure is the panacea of affluence
Infosys Technology has come to our college campus on 18th March 2008. We have reached college by 9.00 AM as the events were going to be held as:
Preplacement Talk: In this event two Infocisions (Mr. Sudhansu n Mss. XYZ) have presented their topics and all about Infosys Technology. The main prospect of this company was it is the first company that has been registered in NASDAQ (American stock Market).
Written Test: After that we have said to fill up the forms provided by Infosys before taking the Written test. Be sure that you have to be very specific and particular in these circumstances. After that we have taken the test. It was my first campus selection. So I was very perturbed and flummoxed. I was feeling the desiccate of time during the test and was feeling very gawky due to being very thirsty. The test was comprised of two sections:
1. Analytical: In this section questions like Cube and Dice (5 questions), Data Sufficiency (5 questions), Data Interpretation (5questions), Figure Series (5 questions), Syllogism (10 questions I think)
2. English: Questions from Two big passages, Theme detection, Fill the appropriate words, Tense checking were asked. It was very easy to solve rather than the Analytical section
Anyway the consternation of our test mammoth has completed by 12.15 PM. I was feeling very suffocated and hopeless, as I have done very miserable in that exam. I have completely left my speculation to go for the interview.
Interview: The list of selected 42 candidates out of 285 was being called in a row according to their performance in the written exam. Very surprisingly, I was obtained a position of 7th/8th in the list. Unfortunately I have not kept ready my files..even if I have not tied the knot of the tie on my neck bcoz I was desperately thinking not to be selected in the written exam.. I have answered around 50-60 questions properly. Friends don’t think yourself very menial and flunky in written exam bcoz it is purely contingent on the performance of other candidates. And one thing you must jot assiduously that you should be very particular in your dress, your files and other appurtenances.
Anyway, I was preparing for the interview by the time they have abruptly called me for the interview. I have given only 2 minutes to prepare my mindset to give that interview as after declaration of result they have suddenly called my name for the interview. I was very despondent at that time. Friends you have to garner all particulars: Mind, body, Heart and Soul at the time of interview. I was sweating at that time as it was the time of 2.45 pm.
I am barefaced and candid to write all blemish that I have done in that interview so that they were being vexation and rejected me.
Me: May I came in Sir…Good afternoon Sir..
HR: Please have ur seat.
Me: Thank you Sir
HR: Abhishek ur father is the Pri cipal and Readed in political science…rite (as I v mentioned it in the form b4 taking the written exam)
Me: Yes sir..He is working in….bla bla bla….
HR: okay…where r u staying now?
Me: sir, I m staying now at Chandrasekhar pur….(interrupted)
HR: Well then how are u going to ur college
Me: I v told the communication details
HR: Well Abhishek , Have you done any extra curricular activities
Yes Sir, I v involved my self in scouts during my schooling..i v explained all about our camp activities in literacy programmme.But unfortunately he did nt know anything about Scouts…only knew NCC..I v explained that these twos were purely different things..But he didn’t convinced at all….
HR: Okay..have u done anything such type of jobs in ur college..I mean working as volunteers
Me: yes Sir, I v involved my self in the Blood donation camp that has been scheduled in our college campus very recently. I along with other volunteers collected a group who were interested to donate blood and with a confabulation I talked them about the benefit and all particulars.
Hr: Well tell me how u ll describe the term Information Technology to a layman?
Me: I v explained briefly wat Information is and wat technology is…and also told the examples in our daily life…after that I v made a blunder as I v mentioned about Clients, Server, Internet…which are not included in the knowledge of a layman.
HR: well abhishek..U r feeling very tired..Please take water
Me: No sir, I am not tired…(But unfortunately I v taken the water.. friends u sud b full b4 an interview..don’t take anything from HR)
HR: Okay Abhishek…have you involved in a combat with your friends….neway have you gone to any friend’s mess..what u v seen there?
Me: Yes Sir ..I v gone there most often.. I v found my friends often involved in te`te-e-te`te…their paraphronias were scattered in a cumbersome manner..but one very good thing I v noticed in them that is their cooperation and team spirit staying in a colloquium
(I think at that time the HR didn’t take my answers properly. Friends u sud be very sure that don’t implement high frequency words and italic phrases during ur communication at interview..I thought it might focused an impression..but the HR may be thinking that I v mugged up the answers as we were not using such type of words in our daily life).
HR: okay..Abhishek (being very disappointed) Tell me about urself.
Me: Sir my background till date has been centered around preparing myself to b a very best IT engineer I can become…I v passed my 10th with 90 % of marks..(interrupted)
Hr: If u r saying that u r very strongly prepared for IT engineer den why dis 3 years gap????
Me: Sir I was preparing for AIPMT. So..(Interrupted)
HR: U were preparing for medical den why u v joined in engineering…is it accidentally??
Me: No sir, when I was preparing for medical at that time there was a craze of it. But despite of breakdown of our economy in India for last two years the demand of IT industry was robustly spread an arena. so iv chosen a career in IT.
HR: Okay Abhishek..Thank you and best of luck
I have left that hall with a flummoxed face with full of disappointment. Anyway after 1 hour they have declared the name of 38 students. And I found no place for me in that list. I was very flabbergasted at that time. It may be my sheer bad luck or it may be my unmaneuverable performance in interview.
Surprisingly I was feeling a sense of nostalgia as my best friend Himansu has selected and I was very pleased for him..but didn’t express at that time. I was frustrated ,traumatized and horrified at that time. But I vnt left that speculation to b an Infocision yet as It was my dream company yaar…As u v 2 give exam of Infy in a gap of 9 months I have to undergo a period of 9 month pregnancy with full of preparation and determination that I have completely left in that interview…hahahaha….Best Of luck…Wishing u a happy voyage to Mysore training center

INFOSYS PAPER ON 20thMARCH 2008
Hi, friends this isHARSHAL CHAUDHARYa student of Walchand College of Engg and now also an Infosyian. I got selected for Infosys through the placement done by it, at Walchand. Here I am mentioning about my experience during the whole placement process.
1. Logical and critical reasoning test 30 questions 40 min
2. Verbal reasoning and English test 40 questions 35 min
Logical and critical reasoning test 1-5Q ------- The question was based onthree ladies having some money and a game played (These r the puzzle test ques of R.S aggrawal v &non-V Type 5).
2-10Q ----- The questions were figure related in which we had to find the correct figure in sequence.
16-20Q --- The question was related to DI in which a table showing number of students in different branches during 6 years were given and we had to answer questions having lot of caculations. So I suggest you to do it at last.
21-25Q --- The question was again puzzle type in which 5 peoples A,B,C,D,E,F,Gand H r sitting aROUND A TABLE.
26-30Q --- The question was syllogism type. In this 6 statements were given with four combination choices like AFC, ACF etc and we had to find the correct logically related combination.
(I recommend you to just go through R.S. Aggarwal Verbal & Non Verbal Reasoning. But prepare well for it. As its one of the deciding factors in clearing Aptitude test.)
Verbal reasoning and English test 1 ---- There were two paragraphs. It will take time so attempt them at last.
2 ---- There were questions on sentence correction in which we had to find correct replacement for underlined part in passage.
3 ---- There were questions on finding the correct sentence among 4 given sentences.
4 ---- There were questions on filling up the blanks with suitable grammatical words.
5 ---- There were questions related to theme dectecion from a small passage.
The main part or the eliminatoin part of INFOSYS is the Apttitude test &&&&& the rest is just a WALK ON CAKE.
For our HR INTERVIEWS their were 5 panels and most them were too much experienced (age more than 45)
