CAPGEMINI PATTERN & INTERVIEW - 15 AUG 2008 - COIMBATORE

Hi Friends

first of all I thank all the members of this forum for posting such useful messages, which helped me a lot and following is my interview pattern which held in Anna University, Coimbatore on 15th August

Basically there were three rounds
     1. Written
     2. GD
     3. Tech+HR

Written
 * 2 sections were there (25 Apps + 25 Verbal)
 * its very easy one, but the problem is negative marking (-0.25).
 * Go through all the previous papers
 * dont attend everything, there is maximum cut off I think so
 * its better to get between 25-30
 * its an elimination round. nearly 1600 ppls only 150 are shortlisted.

GD
  * its not a problem, if u have basic communcation skill.
  * my gd topic was.. why is america dominating the world, and my frnd's topics were Is senior players required in indian cricket team, IT vs non-IT. (be updated with current events).
  * its not an elimination round, out of 150 nearly 110 were selected.

TECH+HR
   * be frank, don try to confuse, be clear with basic concepts of IT and some simple programs (swap, palindrome, string reverse.....).
   * for me it lasts for 30 minutes. HR was very friendly.
   * if u donno the answer say him frankly, be bold and confident.
   * u can expect basic qns like temme abt urslf, y capgemini, strength and weakness.
   * i was asked to answer this qn "u are a team leader, ur project deadline is today and u r not able to finish it, at this situation wat will u do ?"
   * dress neatly, shave ur beard, be professional.
   * basic communication skill is the main aspect here.
   * out of 110->80 were selected finally.

p.s: since they need 10,000+ professionals by 2010, if u clear the written and u hv a basic tech & comm skil, there is no doubt that u r an employee of CG.
