    Interview Details

    There were multiple interviews from Cognizant before hiring me.The communication after the interview was not good.So you dont really know what is going on.Once your resume is shared with cognizant there will people from different departments calling you and they usually dont have proper way to approach.In this way you would interviewed for the same company multiple times.The interviews with cognizant are very technical in nature.So be good at the work you are doing.
