Problem of the day
Tip 1 : Do competitive programming and maintain a decent rating across platforms. This will make you comfortable with the coding rounds and thinking under pressure and in a time-bounded manner.
Tip 2 : Practice some company wise questions, especially of Google, Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft from Leetcode 1-2 months before the placement/internship season to get yourself accustomed to good interview type questions.
Tip 3 : Practice Dynamic Programming using a top-down approach as this not only improves DP but also improves recursion thinking. Recursion in turn help you to solve questions on Trees, graphs, and backtracking.
Tip 4 : Have at least 2 good projects on your resume which is solving some real-life problems. I won't recommend making just clones, rather add more functionalities. Web Development projects are good to start with.
Tip 5 : Study the core subjects for internships in the following priority manner: OOPS>>OS>=DBMS. Some colleges may have System Design as well. That can be studied in the same manner like OS.
Tip 6 : Get yourself a good mentor to guide yourself.
Tip 1 : Keep your resume simple and formal.
Tip 2 : Having a past internship opportunity is a plus.
Tip 3 : Have good projects and mention them only if you know the depth of it.
Tip 4 : List your achievements chronologically and focus on participating in various competitions and getting recognition.
It was early in the morning from 8 am. It was a test from home itself. It was a conducted on HackerEarth and was of 60 minutes duration. 30 students were shortlisted. I was also shortlisted.
This round was scheduled around 12 pm. It was a virtual round with one interviewer who was a Cure.Fit employee. My resume was scanned and a brief introduction was asked. After that a question was put up which I had to find solution to and code it. In the end, I asked questions regarding the type of projects they work on etc. I was selected for the next round
It was in the afternoon. After the first round some people were rejected. A senior executive was on the call. He started with asking about me and about my resume. Be thorough with your resume and whatever is written in it. He asked about my projects in depth like what was the problem it was solving, was it scalable, stack, I displayed a live demo as well. He seemed happy. Next came my internship experience during my 2nd year summers at a startup. He asked what project I worked on and what was the need of it. He ended with asking me if I had any questions for him. Do ask questions and keep a note of 5-6 questions and know your company well. It shows that you are actually interested in working with them.
As soon as the HR round got over. I was asked to sit for my next round. It was again a problem solving round along with Data Structure questions in the end. The interviewer was an employee of Cure.Fit and after a brief introduction, I was given a question. After solving it, I was asked questions on Hashmaps, their implementation, time complexities. Finally, I was selected :)
