Preparing for campus placement:

If little steps are what it takes to lay the road to a successful career in life, then the gait with you take each step, matters. A lot. This holds true in real life and in all steps that you take towards a career.

1. Aptitude Tests:

A vast majority of companies conduct an online aptitude test to filter freshers. Generally, it is the very first round of an on-campus pool drive. The aptitude test round could be either an online one or a paper-based test.

Aptitude tests conducted during campus placements contain objective type questions. So, preparing for such an aptitude test is not actually as tough as it seems. If you practice in advance, you can crack it with ease.

1. Select the proper study material:

This is the most important step as it decides what you will study is useful or not. This decision should be taken very carefully with proper research depending on your requirement or the companies that you wish to interview for.

The best book that covers Quantitative Aptitude part for the test is Quantitative Aptitude for Competitive Examinations by Dr. R.S. Agarwal. This book is essential for aptitude exams as most companies refer this book; sometimes the test contains the same questions as the book (with same numerical values). This book also explains all the concepts clearly, as other books do not do that. There are various websites which are providing the material for preparation such as indiabix, campus gate , geeksforgeek many youtube channels.

  • Time & Work.
  • Number Systems.
  • Probability, Permutation & Combination (Little differences between these 2 topics).
  • Time & Distance.
  • Percentages & Ratios

The pattern of the exam may vary depending on the company, but these topics are asked in all tests in some form or another.

2. Make a time table

After you have decided which study material to use, you need to divide your time based on what you consider your strong and weak areas. More time should be spent on improving your weaker areas to balance out your knowledge.

3. Practice

A lot of practice is needed to crack the test. Daily at least 1-2 hours should be spent on practicing various logical and quantitative aptitude problems also sometime should be spent to improve verbal aptitude by reading various articles and magazines.

4. Review previous year tests

     Previous year Aptitude tests should be reviewed and solved to get an idea about the test pattern the company follows. This helps you to focus on the important topics that companies emphasize upon and you can spend more time-solving problems on those topics.

5. Time management

You need to be extra careful on the time you spend on solving a test and make sure you don’t cross the allotted time. Also, don’t spend more time on the less scoring part of the test. This can be fixed by solving multiple Mock tests available online while being mindful of the allotted time.

6. Analyze your work

    This step is essential, as you need to analyze your work and find out the area where you are making the most mistakes and correct them.

7. Take the exam

If you have followed the above steps, you are ready to take the test to advance further.

Quick tips to remember

  • Try not to guess randomly. Your test score will be comprised of a blend of speed and accuracy. It’s vital not to randomly try to attempt and complete every one of the problems. Work precisely and as fast as possible.
  • Don’t Stop. On the off chance that you think a problem will take a long time, mark it and if you have time remaining return to it. A few problems can be tedious and it is best returning to it later.
  • Read any direction given before your test. Ensure you make a note of how much time you have and generally how much time you should be spending on each problem.

2. Group Discussion:

For GD explore the current topics and read information and increase  your knowledge .Read information on one topic per day it will not take much time .

  • Some points for GD:
        a. Clarity of thought:
        b. Work on your communication skills:

Clear presentation of your ideas and thought process is the automatic step 2 for any group discussion.

  1. Address issues in comprehension:

A GD isn’t just about presenting your viewpoint – it’s a mindshare, a conversation, aimed at coming up with the best possible solution to the situation at hand. And to ace that, you need to take notes. The mental kind. Immediately.Acknowledge (to self) that everyone here has something important to say and add to the puzzle you’re working on. Take your cues from everyone else, including the interviewer. And build on your responses accordingly

3. Technical Round

The best ways to prepare for a technical round or technical interview, therefore, are a sum total of all the preparation you would do for campus placements. Here is the step-by-step guide for working it in style:

  • Background research:

Begin with the areas/domains that the company works on and the common challenges it can face in terms of products/services and their execution. Dive into Quora, Glassdoor and other sources for interview experiences with the company or its closest competitors. And always brush up on the products that the company offers.

  • Practice coding challenges:

More often than not, you would be asked to code or work on a solution to a technical problem. And it’s not just that you arrive at a solution – your execution should be clear and comprehensible. Work on multiple practice sets for these:

  • Q&A Sessions
  • Take Home Coding Challenges
  • Online coding competitions

4. HR Interview:

The HR interview is a case of conviction, where you need to convince the HR personnel, checking you for possible red flags, that you’re the best fit for the role at hand. To prepare for this, you need to work on similar zones, as we have already mentioned above, albeit in a different context.

a. Background research

Research the role, the company, it’s market, products and close competitors, as well as the general domain in which it exists. And apply that knowledge to your HR interview, by showcasing how involved and enthused you’re about the current opportunity.

b. Preparing for common interview questions
c. Keep your things in order:

A day before the interview, prep up by putting together your documents, your interview attire, going through your notes. Next, bring out your positive attitude and cheer and step out with your best foot forward. And you’re ready for it all!
