Out of around 300 candidates,38 cleared the written.
Then they called us for the ppt and the HR guy was very
strict. He told us about the organization, its domains,
industries served and all other aspects of the company. He
said that they only pick the best because they offer the
best to their employees. Then he gave us a 30 minutes break
to eat something and come back with a presentation prepared
of our own for 2-3 minutes..on any topic.
When we came back we found that we were going straight for
interviews and the presentation will be seen there only.My
no.was around the 30th so i had to wait a long time for the
interview and now starts the real thing…..
When I went to greet them they stood up and shook hands with
me. Then he asked me about the presentation. I had barely
spoken 30-40 seconds that he said stop!! We got the gist of
what you wanted to say. My topic was”Should group
discussions and presentations be a part of freshera
recruitment” and I was strongly in favour of it. One of the
interviewer asked….. was I trying to impress them??to which
I gave a flat answer..sir this, is just my view.if you are
impressed then I m doing my job right.
Then he asked me some HR questions…as to who r chadha’s,what
is ur objective and why.Then he asked me technical
questions.. Firstly about my project then he came to
SQL,DBMS..joins cursors,procedures..how to keep a database
secure,a query to join two tables to create a table with a
primary key and a null column. Asked me some queries to
which I wasn’t right but he was gauging my confidence. Then
he asked about c++,object oriented programming.
.inheritance. .types of classes. .types of
inheritances,malloc,calloc…and he was quite satisfied with
Then the other guy asked me if this was my first interview
..i told him it was my second 1st being infosys..then he
asked what went wrong there..i told him that 1 puzzle did
the trick . Itold him that I was waiting for satyam’s
interview.then he told me that he himself was a x-satyamite.he
then explained about the policies of Indian companies and
their nature of keeping guys on bench. Then he asked me if I
were to choose between satyam and convergys what would I
choose and why…..i told him convergys because there is a
chance of going abroad….the he explaine about the whole
issue of going abroad. Then came his final sentence…..
Irrespective of u choosing either of the companies I would
like u to be a part of convergys..i said a solid “thank
you,sir” and he told me to sharpen skills in
unix,dbms,sql,c,c++ before joining.
I was more than excited to be selected…….shook hands with
both of them It was certainly a euphoric day for me… 2 other
guys from my college were selected….a total of 11 in total.
GUYS ITS ALL ABOUT BELIEVING IN YOURSELF,IN GOD AND BEING
CONFIDANT IN YOUR COMMUNICATION AND THOUGHTS. ITS CERTAINLY
A DREAM COMPANY…THE PACKAGE FOR NOW IS 3.3 BUT THIS WOULD
INCREASE BY JOINING TIME.
