HackWithInfy SES Interview Experience 2020
Infosys is one of the major recruiters. HackWithInfy is a contest for all engineering students across India who are graduating in the year 2021. HackWithInfy 2020 is the third edition of the competition that contains three rounds. Round 1 and Round 2 are individual participation online tests and the final round is a team-based hackathon. I applied for the HackWithInfy contest through my college.
Round 1: Coding round held on the HackerRank platform. This round comprises 3 questions that vary in difficulty level. The time allotted to solve these questions is 3 hrs. I completely solved question-2 and partially solved question-1 and made it to the next round. Questions are mainly based on Problem Solving and Data Structures. Solving 1 or more questions can make you selected for round 2.
Round 2: Also, a coding round held on the HackerRank platform. It is similar to round 1 with the same pattern but the level of difficulty increases. Based on your performance you will be offered either System Engineer Specialist Role(SES) or Power Programmer Role(PP). I was able to solve 2 questions. Solving 1 and a half or more questions can make you selected for an interview. I got selected for the SES role interview.
Round 3: My interview was held online on the Infosys Meridian platform and last for around 1 hour. I was asked to show my college id before starting the interview. The interview then started with questions like self-introduction and asked how I was able to manage things in lockdown.
The Interviewer then asked me to write a code for the Fibonacci series in python. I gave the Brute force and DP approach. You can implement the solution by referring to the following link.
Then he asked to explain projects which I worked on. The basic idea behind the project, inspiration, technologies used, and told in-depth about every project mentioned in my resume. And then he asked some questions on my projects like operations performed on a database, applications of the project, and how unique is my project from already existed projects. He then asked me about the academic subjects that I’m interested in. And I replied Java and OS. Then he had gone through my achievements sections and asked about them.
Finally, he asked if I had any questions. And I asked him about his experience in Infosys then answered for about 5-10 mins explaining everything. After, the interview was completed.
