Tip
Tip

Tip 1 : Coding Problems are asked from DSA, so a good practice of standard problems is a must. Revisit these problems before the interview to ace and crack the interview.
Tip 2 : To tackle the conceptual questions, you need to have thorough knowledge about the concepts, so to prepare for OS and DBMS, read one standard book.
Tip 3 : Have proper and clear knowledge about your project. Basic but tricky questions are asked based on the internship experience and the projects you have done.

Application process
Where: Campus
Eligibility: Above 7 CGPA and more than 70% in 10th and 12th
Resume Tip
Resume tip

Tip 1 : The best way to ace an interview is to take command of your interview in your hands. And this is done by having a balanced resume. Projects give direction to the interview and increase the probability of selection. So add at least 2 projects.
Tip 2 : Urban Company seeks team players and not just good coders. So add your achievements outside the academics to get shortlisted.
