Bangalore (India)

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions in February 2012.

Interview Details – On campus recruitment process. The first round was a multiple choice test consisting of English and Quantitative sections. The next round was the interview. It was a mix of HR and technical. The interviewer first went through my resume in detail and asked me to explain all my projects. He was especially interested in projects involving microprocessors. The questions generally branched off from the projects. Nothing too difficult or unexpected.

Interview Question – Difference between microprocessor and controller   View Answer
