Shilpi Shaw

Cambridge Institute of technology

Attended TCS NQT off-campus for 2018 batch & got selected.

There was one round of interview only which combined Technical, HR, MR rounds. Questions were based on my core branch which is Electrical. All of them were basic questions like what is your fav subject, what is an induction motor, its applications, etc.

Some questions were from programming like write a program to print Fibonacci series.Some HR questions were like - Are you willing to relocate, Are you okay with night shifts etc.

Imp points to note down:

  • Never lie anything in your application form or resume.
  • Whether you know anything or not, don't stay calm in the interview.
  • Smile more, be bold, be positive. They never hire candidates who are always serious and worried about little things.
  • Sleep well before the interview and wear neat and clean and proper formal dress. (from hair band to shoes). -
  • If you are cross-questioned at one of your lies, its better to tell the truth.
  • Do full research about the company before the interview.
  • Keep your voice loud and clear.
  • These are all the important traits which the company is looking for. So try to match these points. All the best !!

PS: If it's your day, then nothing is gonna stop you. And if it's not then no matter how hard you try, nothing gonna happen. So, the bottom line is that do your best, don't worry about the result.

Also, in the online test, I was asked this coding question -Write a Program to count the number of vowels and consonants in the word taken as an input by the user.

#TCS NQT interview Experience 7


Attended TCS NQT in 2018

I am from Mechanical branch. My interview was on 9th Feb 2018 in MGIT college, Hyderabad. For me all the three round (TR, MR, HR) were held in one round with 3 interviewers. They asked me questions on C and JAVA as I said I am trained on those languages. Prepare all the basics of languages mentioned in your resume and be prepared on each and every line of your resume. If u think u can't answer for a question on your resume then please remove that line from your resume.

You will be asked this question "Being a non-IT student, why are u coming into this field"?. When asked, answer carefully else they will definetly drag on this topic based on ur answer. However maybe the interviewer's face (serious or smiling), you should be confident with a smile on our face. Some topics & questions asked were:

  • OOPs concepts - All the definitions of OOPs concepts
  • Difference between while and do while.
  • Interface definition,
  • Platform dependency
  • JVM
  • Prime number program
  • Many questions on java (I don't remember some of them)
  • If you are okay with relocation, then why didn't u choose to do engineering in some other state?
  • Difference between 2 stroke and 4 stroke
