    This is the only chance you will get to negotiate. Be persistent and get the salary you deserve. They do not have any attractive bonuses so lock it down before you start.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was looking for work, saw Cognizant BA jobs on EFC, so I registered on their website. Got a call 2 days later from HR that I wasn't successful for the role that I had applied for but they liked my profile for another role - I am based in London and role is in Zurich, found HR very patient with all my questions re relocation. Had a call with a senior manager, I found the interview fairly easy and straightforward. If you know what you are talking about then you won't find it hard, there are no trick questions. I am expecting a second interview with someone on the Client Business Side.

    Interview Details

    Campus Interview:
    Shortlisted on the basis of resume and had an interview which lasted nearly for an hour. The interviewer went about asking each line provided on the resume. This I assume, was mainly to ensure that I was not faking things on the resume. The discussion went off very well.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked to explain the project I did for my undergraduate studies when I was actually appearing for a Post graduate position. I had to think for quite some time before I could come up with the answer   Answer Question

    It was a campus offer. Hence, the salary and perks were fixed before hand
