3I INFOTECH INTERVIEW - 12 MAY 2007 - HYDERABAD

Hi Friends

After Taking written test on Jan 28th 2007 results were declared on 26th Feb. Then we were called for the next round comprising of GD and Technical+HR on May 12th. Final results would be announced in June.

For GD the topic was "kids participating in commercials, serials, movies.. etc is good or bad". We were all 7 candidates, out of which 5 were selected for the next round. Here I would like to highlight the do's and don'ts for GDs before I move on to the tech round details...

Rules to follow in GD: (I guess this is needed )
> Speak (make sure that u speak.. atleast try to be the third person if not the initaitor.. if u initiate u may get some brownie points.. whether or not, but do speak)
> Speak sense (atleast two to three valid points will get u going...)
> Take chance and give chance (this shows u r an opportunist and giving chance shows that u care for ur team....)
> Dont go on and on... (be precise and to the point... coz not more than 10 or 15 min will be alloted for each GD so one of u has to contribute ....)
> Behave like a group... (this shows how u can work amongst different people under different situations....)
> Be actively involved.... (keep an eye on everyone while speaking... it shows u r a silent observer and does not neglect anybody..... many a times it so happens that we contribute our valid point and just keep thinking i am done... there u r... on the verge of losing.. Never do that.... when u have contributed as first or sencond or third.. give chance saying... what do u have to say abt this guys... if ur taking chance.. begin by saying.. u r pretty convincing but I have something important to contribute... if ..u think that u r unable to get a chance.. as it happened with me... remember... if u dont speak... u know what... since  sometimes certain section of people dont give chance.. which definetly is a negative sign.... So u have to take chance coz they r seeing who is speaking... So i had to pull up my socks and began by saying... all u guys out there even i have something to contribute if... u permit ... (since the moderater will not be doing anything. other than watching) and there I began. I was the third speaker.....)
> After giving a point...hold back...then get into the discussion again...then hold back .. then do it for the third time...ur third time can be ur final point...or ur conclusion or u can be doing both...
> If u take the initiative to conclude never say : so "I" conclude.. never use I... Since u r a part of "Group" Discussion ...therefore the most admirable way would be to say: on behalf of my whole group the conclusion drawn is.... So there u r guys.... watch out... since u r being watched out.....

Technical+HR...
In my cabin there was only one panalist... I opnd the door.. did not sit untill the chair was offered... He began by introducing his self and then there were all Personal Questions .. begining by Tell me abt urself.... I included my hardwork my distinction throughout my academics my extracurricular activities my strenghts..... to this question make sure u present urself in such a manner that u appear different from other applicants... that will earn u "the place...." so make sure u work on it.....

ur USP must really be unique.... since this will determine why they should hire u... then he asked if am comfortable relocating.. freshers cant bargain, since they have more resons to say yes than to say no unlike experienced.. gys so u have to to say yes.. to relocation.. to service agreement... to package... then i was sent to the HR.. she asked me how was technical it was her first question... again it was personal..

Finally the last one shot was: do u have any questions... I asked.... so that was a little from the much.. hope it helps u all in some way or the other....

Best Wishes...
Nusrat
