Journey
My journey started at my school when I first learned to code. From there onwards, I gave JEE exam and took admission in B.Tech course. From my first year onwards, I have done a lot of practice from leet code and code studio. I have maintained a streak of doing at least 40 questions a week to maintain my accuracy. I also gave enough time to core subjects.
Application story
Amazon was the first company to visit our campus for internships and placements. We just had to upload resume and filled all details in the form. They did some shortlisting on the basis of CGPA first.
Why selected/rejected for the role?
I was selected because I had developed skills like DSA, problem-solving, and Logical building ability. I was able to solve DSA problems quickly. I also prepared for the HR round because all the questions asked in the HR round I was already familiar with them because of my extracurricular activities and that's why I was capable to answer them correctly.
Preparation
Duration: 6 months
Topics: Data Structures and Algorithms, Operating Systems, OOPS, Dynamic Programming, System Designs, Networks
Tip
Tip

Tip 1 : Practice atleast 30 questions of each topic of DSA
Tip 2 : Do practice OOPS thoroughly for the interview part. For the coding round practice arrays, strings, linked list and trees as much as you can. 
Tip 3 : Make a blue print of Operating system note while preparing it and just revise it before your interview and coding round.

Application process
Where: Campus
Eligibility: Above 7CGPA, No back logs
Resume Tip
Resume tip

Tip 1 : You must include only those things in your resume, in which you will be able to answers almost all questions 
Tip 2 : Make atleast two projects and include them in the resume, because many time interviewer put all his time discussing projects only. So if you have a command on your project, then it will be beneficial for you.
