    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions.

    Interview

    The first round was aptitude which was pretty hard, but got through it. Technical and HR rounds were combined and the questions were related to my branch mechanical engineering. It was all about CAD and Solid edge. He hardly let me talk. I couldn't get through it.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Cognizant Technology Solutions (Bengaluru (India)) in September 2012.

    Interview

    It has two rounds. First Aptitude written round and a HR round. In the aptitude round equal importance is given to verbal and quants section. RS.Agarwal and Word power made easy by Norman Lewis is more than enough. HR round - basically easy if u r topper else they will check your technical stuff. For me he asked ques based on my resume nothing more.

    Interview Questions

    • Unexpected ques is " what you will do if you are set all alone for 2 days - no internet,no contact with ppl, no books, nothing ". I convinced some how saying "i will search answers for the questions that arouse due to life illusions- to which only i can answer myself" ...life illusions - love, belief on god, it goes on....   Answer Question
