I interviewed at Cognizant

Interview

So, my interview duration was around 35 minutes. It was an online interview. I had cleared the online test consisting of aptitude questions, and thus was selected for interview process

Interview Questions
  • Interview mainly consisted of 3 types of question. 1) Aptitude question---> He asked basic aptitude questions on topics like Work and time, logical , etc.It was fairly easy 2) Core Subject questions---> Here the interviewer asked favourite subject from my Btech course . Since I am from Civil Engineering background, I mentioned some Civil Engineering topics. He then googled those topics and asked questions. So make sure you read atleast one subject from your branch thoroughly, so you can answer queries from them 3) Coding/ Programming ----> IN this round you can be asked theory question from topics like OOPS, DBMS, SQL, etc or you may be asked to code. The level of question is fairly easy and I would advise you to learn some basic of DSA also. They don't usually ask, but you can add that in your resume and also it would leave a good impression on ghe interviewer if you have good idea of DSA. ALL THE BEST
