TCS INTERVIEW EXPERIENCE

Approximately 9 days were left when I got the news about joint campus of TCS. It was though very less time to get prepared for any campus recruitment process but my hold on aptitude and reasoning made me strong enough to get prepared for TCS.

Somehow I came to know that TCS written test includes repeated questions i.e., the pattern of TCS written aptitude test remains same but the values get changed. Process of TCS recruitment included 3 stages:

1.      Written Aptitude Test (Online)

2.      Technical Interview

3.      HR Interview

Written Aptitude Test (Online):

For written test, I tried to solve previous year papers of TCS. It consisted of normal questions of aptitude and reasoning. All thanks to R. S. Aggarwal who made my reasoning aptitude strong enough to tackle previous year papers of TCS. Apart from R.S. Aggarwal, I really want to thank “TRINITY” for preparing us and clearing the logics behind those questions of TCS.

Written test was on 19th Sep, 2011, BBSBCET, Fatehgarh Sahib. It started at 3 pm in a lab. It consisted of 35 questions which were to be solved in 80 mins.

I started test with time and seeing the questions I felt so comfortable that the questions were exactly the same which I practiced. With 18 mins to spare, I finished my test and then revised my test and with 5 mins to spare, I submitted my test. I attempted 35 out 35 questions and I was pretty much sure that my all questions were correct (90% probability).

Now, the result of that test arrived on next and to my joy, I was shortlisted for the interview. 21st Sep, 2011 was the day of interview and we travelled to the same place for the interview.

Retired but not yet tired

The writer is a retired Major General …not retired from life..just retired from his post.

Currently employed with TATA’s as an Advisor and also writes for various magazines mainly on the national security .

1.      Retirement from service in our society is a rather recent phenomenon. It was possibly started by the British. In a nation where people want to be paid without doing their assigned jobs, a paid permanent sabbatical on reaching the age of superannuation is an icing on the cake.

2.      Superannuation is an acknowledgement by the system that the concerned person has spent his or her productive years in the service of the organization and should make way at a certain age for others to move up the ladder. It is hoped that by this time the person concerned would have taken care of all his obligations, collected enough money to look after his needs and would be looking forward to a well-deserved break from the routine.
