    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at IBM in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    The first round was divided into two parts- 20 questions on number series and then 20 questions were aptitude based on percentage, shares, time and work, etc The level of difficulty is a bit more than average, so practise well! Also, each question has a timer of 2:15 minutes, so read the question carefully and then act fast on it.
    Around 50% students got eliminated here and the other 50 went for online verbal test. It had 20 questions in 22 minutes and the questions were based on business email writing like how do you write the address or how should you sign a document, etc. This one, like the previous, was difficult for an average person too. Again, 50% got eliminated.
    The rest went for PI which was basic HR round, they ask you about everything you've mentioned in CV, ranging from final year project to intern to your family background, so prep well for it.

    IBM conducted one telephonic and another f2f interview. Telephonic was technical while f2f was hr interview. Both lasted for around half an hour. Questions were easy and related to the job requirement. Hiring process is accomplished online from beginning though end.
