Its pretty long that I made a post here. Now here with a kind of novel post.
I am jotting down my experience of the Poornam Infovision placement drive conducted at SHREDS Kerala.Many of ma friends asked me to put a personal note here.
There were 3 rounds for the selection:
1) Written Test
3) HR Interview
As always i reached the test venue 30 minutes before the schedule. With drops of hope and oceans of prayers i entered the hall. The test had many sections with sectional cut off.
The technical part had questions from Logic design, digital, CAO, Operating System, Computer Network etc. Some of them were really easy . From OS questions related to scheduling were asked. I have found questions from this section before also.Linux questions were mainly based on commands ,booting process ,file system etc. And its bit tough for non-linux users. C questions were relatively easy. Test Ur C Skills(Yeshwanth Kanithkar) is more than enough.Aptitude questions was bit hard. The distribution is like:
Tech-15; C-10; Apti-10 ;Linux-10 ; Communication skill test: essay on “What do u prefer team work or working independent”. As a person with common sense do,I supported team work .
After the test the result was out with in 1.5 hrs. With no hope i was waiting for the results so that i can leave home once its out. But to my surprise my name was called. As per the schedule there was no interview that day. But to our surprise they announced that interview will be on the same day. My interview was scheduled at 1.30 pm. Expecting only test on the day i was in full casuals with a face which took a shave a week before. Some how i managed to get things track on time. By 2 my name was called.
