    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through their official website. They called me the following day ( Thursday) to go to interview on Friday (same week - so had less than 24h to prepare).
    On their AC day they had 3 stages - business case study which I was not made to do since I had no partner for it, Competency based interview ( typical questions from "Tell me about yourself" through teamwork, work experience, career motivation, integrity questions), Presentation based on technical/consulting technology case study which I was emailed the day before.

    Interview Questions
    • As long as you go through the competency based type of questions (typical questions from "Tell me about yourself" through teamwork, work experience, career motivation, integrity questions) and think through the cost, technical and time matters outlined in the case study - then you should be ok.   View Answer
