Interview Experience

For everyone, the duration of their interview was 30-40 min but mine went up to 1hr 15 min. They started the interview by asking me to write a code to say whether two words are Anagram or not and later extended the question to write a code for identifying N words of any number of alphabets are anagrams are not. They are not too concerned about the syntax. They wanted me to explain the logic to solve the problem.
After this question, they asked me what I learnt in my technical Internship and also questioned me about my role and work I did in my summer project. They also asked some questions on how blockchain works and why it is so secure.
Later, they asked HR questions like why do you want to work in Capgemini and Why do you want to join IT(As my branch was mechanical). They also asked reasons for my low pointer(6.20) when compared to other shortlisted students.

Guys, I suggest everyone to visit the website of the company you have applied and make sure you have some knowledge in the fields that particular company is working. In PPT of Capgemini, they asked if anyone knows about Blockchain and also questioned about AR(Augmented Reality). I was the only one who could answer these questions. It created a positive impression and they called me for the interview before my allotted position.

Be confident, even if you were unable to answer the questions. You should be able to convince him that you are interested in Technology and willing to learn IT skills as required by the company.
