    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at IBM.

    Interview Details

    Easy interview. You can easily crack it. It was an Off-campus interview. Many students attended. But the Written test is also easy. Interviewer will mainly focus that you are ready to relocate to any location. He asked me if I was ready to relocate or not because afterwards people say that they dont want to go to a particular location which makes things difficult for them to handle.
