Out of this 25 students were shortlisted for the next round.

Round 2: Technical Interview 1

  • The interviews started around 10:00 the next day. I was asked questions from my resume in detail, and more about the projects I’ve done and the tech stack I’ve worked with. I was asked some questions on Data Structures(Hashing, Vectors), DBMS (SQL Queries ), and React Js, since I had mentioned it on my resume (Lifecycle of React Component, Virtual DOM, ES6 ). I was given a string question at the end to solve. The interviewer was very friendly and asked if I had any questions for her.

18 students were shortlisted for the next round.

Round 3: Technical Interview 2

This round took place in the afternoon. I was given 4 coding questions and asked to code in the Code-Pair platform.

  4. Kth Smallest and Largest in BST

I was asked questions on Normalization and 3NF. I explained with a help of an example and the interviewer appreciated me for the same 

14 students were shortlisted for the final round.

Round 4:Technical Interview 3:

The final round was at 5:00 in the evening. The interviewer was a Senior Director at Visa. I had done 2 internships during my third year and was asked questions about my work done there. I was asked to explain my DBMS project. I was given scenarios about the project and how I would deal with those situations and what changes I would make in my project to be resistant to such issues. I tried to answer them in the best way possible. I was also asked about the CAP Theorem (System Design). He asked me if there were any questions for him, and ended the interview with a smile.

The results were out the next day and 8 people including me, were selected for the full-time role. :)))

Tips:

  • Go through System Design questions in GFG.
  • Be ready to answer questions about anything on your resume.
  • Go through your projects, including the issues and what could be made better.

All the very best!
