Tip
Tip

Tip 1 : Go through the Company and its Job Profile and ensure how much of your skillset matches with it because you have to focus on the strong areas of yours which they are looking for in the Interviews.
Tip 2 : Keep your DSA, OOPS, and DBMS concepts very clear, the basic ones are more important rather than the tough ones in the case of Interviews.
Tip 3 : For the written test, prepare for the Aptitude along with the Technical MCQs from reliable sources over the web, apart from that for Coding Questions the material provided in the Coding Ninjas DSA course along with Codezen is enough to clear the Written Round.

Resume Tip
Resume tip

Tip 1 : Your Resume must be thorough, there is no need for a fancy 2-3 pages Resume, keep it simple and clear, you can be asked to justify even a soft skill which you have mentioned for example hardworking, leadership quality, etc.
Tip 2 : Mention your Projects and Internships in the increasing order of your expertise in them. 3-4 Projects + 1 Internship mention is a must according to me.
Tip 3 : Put mixed Certifications i.e (Technical + Cultural), as it will help you in your Managerial and HR Rounds apart from that don't put too many Technical Certifications which you can't justify in the Interviews.
