Coding problem2

The interview again began with my resume but it was very exhaustive. While my friends were asked about both resume and DSA concepts, my interview focused entirely on my resume. I had done a project on distributed computing and the interviewer asked me an application question on multi-threading and synchronisation. It was quite difficult because I was trying to explain my approach and I couldn’t make out if the interviewer was happy with my approach or not. Then he asked to design a contact database without the actual use of DBMS in java. Again I tried to explain my approach but it was tough. The interview ended after asing one or more coding questions.

Coding problem1

This was about 30 minutes long interview. First, she asked introduction, after that she was very interested in my internship that I did in summer and about my interests. She asked few common questions on that.


 

1. Basic HR Questions

1) Why should I hire you?
2) What you know about Samsung?
3) Hobbies
4) Three strengths and three weaknesses 
(Suggestion: —-Please ask questions at the end of session when they ask you to do so..)In the end, he asked if I had any questions for him and I asked how is life working in Samsung, how long he was working and in which domain. The interview went well in the end.

Problem approach

Tip 1 : Be true and answer realistically
Tip 2 : do not panic,almost everyone who come till hr round will be selected
Tip 3 : Please ask questions at the end of session when they ask you to do
