Ques. Introduce yourself to the readers
HI! I am Deepanshu, student of Computer Science and Engineering at Chitkara University Punjab Campus, currently in my 7th semester. I got placed on campus in my 6th semester in the month of April. I am currently interning at FICO, Bengaluru as a Software Engineer.
Ques. What was the difficulty level of the interview? (1- very easy, 10-very difficult)
The difficulty level was quite decent. On a scale of 1-10, I would rate it around 7-8.
Ques. What was the procedure of the placement that took place? (Shortlisting criteria/ coding or aptitude test/ number of interviews)
At first, just before the companies were going to visit the campus, we had to go through an Employability Test. It was conducted and multiple platforms like CodeQuiotient, eLitmus etc. and the collective score was to be considered. The top tier students on the basis of the result of this test were given chance to sit in the placement drive in companies which came initially, exclusively.
In my case I cleared the employability test successfully, so I was able to apply in the initial companies.
In case of FICO, first round was resume shortlisting, then a written test inclusive of DSA, English and other core CS subjects. Second Round was technical round which was team specific, as I was working as work like i was being hired as developer so my interview was more development oriented like more on my projects which I made. And the third round was HR round which was quite easy.
Ques. Tell us about the written/online test. (Aptitude, Coding, Test Platform, etc)
Round 500 students appeared for written test which was held in the Exploretorium (main auditorium), where we had mixed invigilators i.e. from college as well as the organisation. The test included qustions from DSA, basic programming, aptitude and english.
