Journey
I started my coding journey from the second year of graduation. I asked and consulted seniors on how to start in my career and they adviced me to first start DSA. I started doing DSA. In starting, I did not practiced regular, but from the seventh semester, I started practicing DSA on regular basis. Meanwhile I also learned Web Development in the last phase of third year. Then, I was ready to apply in different companies.
Application story
It was the peak placement season, and every student of 4th year were waiting for any company to visit the campus. I was informed that VMware was going to visit our campus, and I started to practice for it. As, I got 10 days to revise everything, so I did 120 question DSA sheet and revised some basic concepts. I went through interview process, and finally I was selected at last.
Why selected/rejected for the role?
I think I had the appropriate skills and a good amount of knowledge to prove that I was the right man for the post. I also solved coding questions in the optimal manner.

It was the easiest round.

It was an HR round.

1. Basic HR Questions

Introduce yourself.

Will you be able to relocate?

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Problem approach

Tip 1 : whenever you introduce yourself, be your own, don't copy the answers from the internet.
Tip 2 : For the relocation questions, you must say 'YES' because most of the times the location is pre-decided and you can't ask to change them.
Tip 3 : Always learn some good things about organisation before HR round
