    Hello all,
    I would like to share my experience on the interview which I faced in a IT Company. Before I have given many interviews but this one interest me the most. So would like to share the experience. First I applied for the company online and then I got a call from them. I had a telephonic round in which my past experiences, qualification was asked. Also alternatively my English grammar was tested I think so. Also my likes, dislikes and interests were asked. After that I was called for an face to face round with the HR. Here starts the really adventure. First questions where just normal as always, introduce yourself ,etc. Later on logical questions started where my skills were analyzed.

    I got the interview through the CO-OP program at my school. Interviewer was very nice, got along very well. I was able to answer most of the questions, none of them very technical. The most technical question was "What are the 3 main terms in a SQL Select statement". Questions were mostly about my past experiences, previous work terms, my classes etc. some hypothetical questions. Overall, pretty easy, just be yourself and be able to elaborate on your past experiences and be able to explain how you solved problems.
