Next day shortlisted students had interview. mainly HR questions were asked very rarely technical. Each panel has only one person. The person who came for me was the head of global recuirement for infy. He was very friendly, soft spoken and Very smart. ME:Excuse me sir.(my slot was 10.15, but called at 12.30) HE:sorry shobana,waiting for such long time!(he might have seen me waiting) ME:full of smiless!!!!!!!!!! HE:tell about urselves ME:said in 7 minutes. he:why u want to join IT field (I belong to mechanical background) me:gave very smart ans he visibly he was satisfied)VERY GOOD!!!!!!!! HE: if posted outside chennai ,will u be happy? me: very very happy sir and explained it(Iam bit jovial and so said that iam bored with chennai!!!!!! blah blah) HE: (With all smiles )VERY GOOD!!!!!!Any Question to me? me: asked a ques he had never expected (i asked about client satisfaction and feedbacks) HE: (explained very well). then asked to submit my mark sheets.THEN gave shake hands and asked 2 wait till evening Me:THank u sir!!!!!!!!!!(i was confident that i will be selected) For interview they mainly see our confidence level, english, our commitement to join infy and personality also matters!!!!! (Be well dressed with light colour formal dress its very important). Some times being short listed from written test might need luck also . so dont loose hope if not shortlisted. This year every IT company need about 20,000 -30,000 enggs. So if not in one company u will be placed in another. I pray to god that all members of this wonderfull group will be placed within this year.
