Capgemini Placement paper
|CAPGEMINI PAPER ON 5th AUGUST
Hello all job aspirants, i am charchika shukla, student of
NIT Raipur.I got placed in "CAPGEMINI" on 5th August 2008.It
was a wonderful experience. you will get to know abt the
pattern n procedure from other papers on this wonderful site
we all know as "FRESHERSWORLD.COM" but what i will tell u is
my experience -
that day first of all the company's representatives gave a
Powerpoint Presentation of their company , as it was the
first software company to vsit our college all of us were
very excited , i and some of my frnz had come with an
attitude that just lets see what happens,we were not very
sure, so it was like a rehearsel for us. the presentation
was good,they told us abt their cmpny n all.You must check
out a few details like CEO,locations,origin etc. about the
after ppt we were to sit for the written test.it was easy ,
there were 2 sections - apti n LR. there were 3 different
sets of the paper.questions wre of the type specified in
many of the papers on this site.50 qs n 1 hr time.they had
told us a cutt off of 10 qs in each section.i had solved
12-13 qs of apti and around 18-20 qs of LR. i had given the
test with " lets see what happens" hope., after about 1 n a
hlf hr results were declard n to my surprise my name was
there!! total 120 students were selectd .i thought " oh my
god !i will have to prepare for next round GD" as i had not
prpd for it at all.so with my frnz help i prepared some
current topics like "Nuclear deal" , "terrorism" n a few
abstract topics like "black" etc. they had divided 120 ppl
in 10 grps each of 12 members.
then came my turn- n luckily i got the topic Nuclear deal.my
panel gave us 2 min. to think abt the topic.as i had prpd it
,so i decided anyhow i have to "initiate" the topic, as it
yields most points and was just looking at them for start
signal n as soon as i got it i just grabbed the opportunity
n successfully initiated the topic - "gudafternoon all of
u,i m so n so n our topic of discussion is ...." . one
important thing that i learnt was - a persn must be
confident while speaking, must raise the volume if he/she is
not getting the chance to speak, becoz nobody is going to
give u chance to speak , n at the same must listen to others
attentively, make eye contact wid ur grp members it shows ur
confidence n projects u as a facilitator who helps others to
speak. i did all this. n also , if possible try to make
urself comfortable with ur grp members if u know their
names, before the discussion as it helps u to win frnz n
hence good n familiar grp members to discuss with.
neways, results were out n as i thought - i had a chance, i
was one of the 3 students selectd from our grp of 12
students.total 74 students.
so , i was in for the final round - the tech+ hr interview.
it was really a mix of feelings- i was excited at the same
tme a bit nervous abt the interview as i had not prpd well
my technical subjects like Operating System, N/wking etc. n
rest of the subjects like DS,C,C++ i had not touched them
for the last week , but ya , i was done with my project
works which i had done genuinely. so before goin to
interview i had some 2 hrs , so i just brushed up some of
the basic concepts n all .
i was abt to be called on 27 th no. but to my surprise, my
name was called around 7:15 pm nearly 1/2 an hr earlier.i
was not at all prepared , i just picked up my file from
smwhere n a pen, lended by my frnd n rushed in.
there were 4 panels . I was sent to a single person
panel.His name was Mr. Shabreesh Menon.
so i jst entered n wished him gudevning sir.he too wished me
n askd me to sit.n he askd me the meaning of my name. i
told.he then asked me to give me a brief intro of myself.i
did. then he askd me abt my projects.i told. then askd me
abt my fav subject.i told. nxt q was why did i chose to
pursue MCA.i told. then he gave me a really easy puzzle.i
answrd.he then askd why shall they choose me over others.i
told hard work,sincere with an eg to support.then he finally
askd me if i had any constraints regarding the place if i
get placed.i said no.
he then said ok,it was nice meeting u and did a handshake.i
said - "same here sir"with a smile. and i left.
i thought i had a chance,for the first time in the whole day
it came to my mind- i dnt want to go home empty handed now.
as i was the first one t be called of our class so evry one
jst asked me abt the interview.finally, the results were abt
to be out..........
finally our(girls candidates,as it was getting late) results
wre out - n my name was there!!! frm our class 7 girls n 4
bys have been selectd!!!
just, one thing be confident n take evry thing lightly, i.e
dont be tensed n have faith in the god. n u will do it...
