    Pretty easy. The interviewer was really nice and since I only graduated then from college, he was less strict and focussed mainly on questions related to IQ and standard data structure.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions.

    Interview

    First round was an Aptitude test
    The normal aptitude test which you will get in India, if you prepare few aptitude books you will clear this for sure. But at times, the thing is most ppl r selected randomly from this round. so its bit of luck is also necessary to get into the second round.

    Second round was Technical cum HR round
    The HR's will have a set of questions printed and they will be asking a lot from that. You will be asked questions from your major or areas of interest or any OOPS concept.
    Btr prepare for the worst.

    It was a on campus recruitment, everything went smooth.
