Just Born


Being just born is the best relationship moment between the mother and child. This is life’s greatest gift because it doesn’t demand explanation of oneself. There is freedom, trust, nothing is held against, not provoked and instigated, past is forgotten and future is welcome, transparent, self-image isn’t hampered, be myself. If you find one such person in life it’s your greatest gift next to the moment of just born.

Mr Alex Jeeva

Interviewer: Good evening Mr. Alex, tell us about yourself!

Alex:  I’m from Tirpur and presently pursuing final year B.Tech CSE. My short term goal was to find an opportunity to explore a role (job) that would help in utilising my skills to benefit the organisation. And my long term goal is to become a well renowned person in the respective field. I see myself as a honest, adaptable and a good team member. I try to view things positively. Apart from technical and academics; cricket, badminton and listening to music is something I enjoy on regular basis. I have a younger sister pursuing 12th standard and mother taking care of business and family.

Interviewer: Interesting to know that you enjoy multitasking. Let’s move to our next question, why did you choose to apply for Kaar Technologies?

Alex: (Thinks and smiles) I see that the future depends on integrating things which could make objects/system accessible in easiest and effective way. Kaar Technologies is an SAP based software company whose clients are from across the globe. They provide business solutions and make their task easier. This idea of making human effort easier to contribute larger to the society made me choose Kaar. I also think SAP domain is lucrative from a career perspective.

Interviewer: Your views are interesting! What were the different rounds conducted?

Alex: Rounds were Aptitude, GD, Technical cum HR and final round with the Delivery Head of the unit. The aptitude round consisted of 60 questions that had logical, quantitative and business english. I assume about 25% were applicants were shortlisted. The next round was GD with 7 or 8 members in the group. The topic was related to ‘Jio’. The next rounds were stressful because of the continual questions with limited scope to think or to react on the responses/ feedback. The final round was about 50 minutes with interesting scenario thrown to present ideas/views. For example, ‘if you were a team lead and need to answer a client in absence of delivery head on the postponement of the project, how would you handle?’ ; Tell me about SAP, Kaar and its competitors? ; Tell me about your native place.

Interviewer: What are your suggestions for future aspirants?

Alex: Being aware of things happening across the globe and presence of mind could make difference to one during recruitment. Learning beyond academics seemed to have paid for me and I believe it will be others as well. Being confident to express oneself because ‘you know yourself better.’

Savitha

Savitha:  Kaar Technologies is a one of global consulting firm which is purely a SAP solution provider. SAP helps several businesses to manage and its promising scope has lead me to apply for the position.

Interviewer: Seems a good roadmap. What were the different rounds conducted?

Savitha: The process was spread over several weeks-

Round 1 was an online test that consisted of Logical reasoning and Business English aptitude questions.

Round 2 was a group discussion on a general topic

Round 3 was technical/ HR round. It was a stress interview round similar like rapid fire round. (smiles)

Round 4 was a discussion with delivery head. Though the round seemed general but I think they were projecting the candidates prospectus for future.

Some of the questions are asked were –

Why should I hire you? ; What do you know about SAP? ; Write a program to swap two numbers without using temporary variable. ; If your posting is in Iraq, how do you planning to cope up with the environment conditions? ; We don’t provide cab facilities, how would you manage to commute? ; How long will you work for the company? ; Do you have any plan for higher education?  ; Which is favourite subject? ; What are routing algorithms? ; What is routing? ; What are your hobbies?

Interviewer: What is/are your take away from the process?

Savitha: It was a good experience. Regular aptitude practice actually helped me as the questions were lengthy that would require at least two minutes to read/understand throughly. Assessor for GD were in opinion to provide a topic that everyone agrees to see a discussion taking forward. There were two topics given one after the other. The topics were, ‘Whether social network is a boon or bane.’ and ‘Clean India is individual aspect or a government aspect.’ Both the times I initiated the discussion and I think its seen positive while marking.

Stress interview seemed to stress because one of the interviewee tried to bring the moral low by axing the views/answers.

Interviewer: What are your suggestions for future aspirants?

Savitha: Stay clam and composed in each round. Treat each person as potential interviewer.

Interviewer: Thank you Savitha for sharing your insights. I hope it will help the readers and aspirants. Wishing you a great life and career with Kaar Technologies.

Savitha: (smiles) Thank you and it was pleasure answering the questions.
