    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Fidelity Investments in August 2013.

    Interview

    It was on campus in aug 2013,
    Criteria 65% in engineering.
    Branchs:EC,CS,IS
    first we had aptitude test which consisted of quantitative,logical-more on syllogisms,non verbal,blood relations etc..then verbal-sentence formation etc...and technical based on c,c++,flow chart.
    It was tough...but people who had practised aptitude on all topics could clear it.
    Around 30-35 cleared it...
    we were supposed to have GD but since few cleared and they were running out of time,we directly had technical interview.
    I was the first to be called...n it was my first interview,i was very tensed but the interviewer made me very comfortable....she was very friendly..
    she asked me about my projects,then asked basic concepts in c++ like polymorphism,operator overloading because i told her that i was'nt comfortable learning c++ in the beginning...but started liking the subject later,she was happy n satisfied with my answeres.
    then she said explain the concept of data base to a 5 yr old...initially i had only a vague idea about how to explain,n i told her then she asked if a 5 yr old would understand it?then i had just got a thought in my mind...n i answered spontaneously,explaining it........she was very impressed with my answer.it continued with few more technical questions.
    I have very high scores,but i gave my honest opinions about my understanding in various subjects,so she liked my truthfullness n honesty.
    Then she asked me more Hr questions...
    Finally she asked if I have any question,i said yes n asked more about the work culture,the kind of projects we'l take up etc....

    KEY POINTS:be very honest,truthful,write all your own hobbies n qualities in your resume,they observe n test u on the same...
    one thing i noticed was since i was very honest with her(though i got good scores,i liked n i understood only few subjects completely),n since i was not boastful i had very less technical.
    Always open up n tel more about yourself if ur technically weak or not very confident in answering,then they'l assess you based on your character n select.

    HR:I was the 1st to have hr round too,if u do well in technical right after 5 minutes they'l call u for HR.Since i was very happy with my technical interview,though it was unexpected that Hr will be so fast i quite confident in HR.It was 2 on 1 interview,it was mostly based on working hours,preferred location,how flexible i can work,higher studies etc...questions were mostly decisional .I felt HR was tougher because they did'nt give me time to think they wanted raw answers not rehersed answers.they were highly skilled n professional.

    TIP:Always be honest,most of my friends lost in HR for question:you perfer development or testing?my friend honestly wanted only development but she tried answering both are fine...but she said they were so skilled that they made her reveal her inner dislike for testing,
    i honeslt did'nt mind any 1,so be honest even if u want only development,answer confidently
    and give a reason why u think so..........

    After technical few were rejected....around 18-20 had HR and finally they shortlisted 12,i was 1 among the shortlisted people.

    once the whole procedure was over,they congratulated us,n they told us little more about the company n welcomed us.

    Interview Questions

    • The most unexpected question was in HR,it was the first question about me coming from a traditional family.......i was shocked because when she asked she sounded very confident,i was caught off guard but i answered very very honestly giving details about the kind of family i come from,the culture n traditions,but how open minded we are in terms of our thoughts,we just have a traditional outlook.She knew my answer was genuine.
      TIP:
      For unexpected questions,take few minutes time, think properly but answer honestly dont lie.

      If u follow the above tips,im sure any1 will succeed even if they are not technically sound.
      Good luck!
