I am Ankita Khandelwal pursuing B.Tech. From ASET, Bijwasan in instrumentation and control branch. I got placed in Hcl technologies through the campus placement in Amity, noida on 31st Jan '07.
The whole placement procedure goes like this:
There were three rounds:
First there was a written round with two papers
The aptitude round had 45 questions each of 1 mark with no negative marking. The time limit was 60 min. The level was little tough with questions on logical reasoning, data interpretation and maths.
Then next paper was technical for 30 min with 25 questions of 1 mark each. The questions were on based on the concepts of c/c++, computer networks, operating systems, DBMS and data structures. The conceptual ones were easy but the output questions were of good level based on macros, bit wise operators, pointers and manipulators.
Second round was technical. The person sitting in the panel was very charming. He asked for the introduction and asked about the project I did after 4th semester. Then he asked me to write the program to check string for the palindrome. I couldn't write the program but I explained him the whole concept. In other panels interviewers were asking programs of sorting, searching, questions on output, errors, constructors destructors polymorphism, inheritance and concepts of OOP.
Final round was HR. There were two people. The lady asked about the family background, areas of interest, future plans, top 5 IT companies, top 5 B-schools, concepts of OOP, classes, technical skills, hobbies, knowledge about the company and other questions like:
·Why should we hire you?
·How you r different from other candidates?
·Why do u want to join this company?
·Which is your dream company?
·Are you comfortable with all the shifts?
So this was the whole procedure. The main thing you need to take care is that you should show that you are confident, charming and have pleasant personality.
Don't fumble, hesitate and scare…
Best of Luck!!!!!!!!!!
