(Interviewer is the author of She: Ekla Cholo Re ; BUGman ; He Who Dreams)
Interviewer: Good evening Ms. Savitha, tell us about yourself!
Savitha: I’m from Ooty studying final year Information Technology. My strengths are – I’m a self-motivated person, adaptable, and friendly in nature. My short-term goal was to get placed in a reputed organisation where I have an opportunity to perform and improve skills sets. The long term goal is to set a benchmark to excel in the chosen area. I believe in , ‘never neglect any right opportunity that would hone the skills for a better tomorrow.’
Interviewer: Some interesting beliefs and goals. Let’s move to our next question, why did you choose to apply for Kaar Technologies?
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.
