Journey
My journey to where I am today has been very straight forward. I started learning coding concepts from youtube, but it did not satisfy me. So, I purchased some online courses from Coding Ninjas and Udemy. I learned DSA from the Coding Ninjas course, and it was great. I also learned the skills used in Development from an online course by Udemy.
Application story
Wolter Kluwer came to our college to hire fresher candidates for the post of SDE-1. As I was in my fourth year, I was desperate to get a placement, and the preparations were already underway. I took part in this hiring drive of Wolter Kluwer, and finally I got placed.
Why selected/rejected for the role?
I think I was selected because I was able to build the optimal solution for the coding questions asked in the interviews and more over I also practiced for the good communication skills and thankfully I was able to get over my nervousness and confidently pass the interview rounds.
Preparation
Duration: 2 months
Topics: Data Structures and Algorithms,Database Management System, Operating System, Networking, Aptitude, revised each and every project on my CV well, researched some company archives on GeeksForGeeks.
Tip
Tip

Try to be who you actually are in interviews and don’t try to be over smart in front of the interviewer as they know more than you that’s why they are taking your interview. Also prepare Data Structures and Algorithms, also do prepare for theoretical subjects like Database Management System, Object-Oriented Programming as they are part of many interview questions. I prepared these through the Coding Ninjas notes which were amazing and easy to understand and covered almost every topic.

Resume Tip
Resume tip

Focus on the Key projects(Major ones), and key courses(Courses like Data Structures and Algorithms in Coding Ninjas, Certified Ethical Hacker certification, etc.) matters as they differentiate you from the rest. Just keep applying, off-campus sometimes takes time. So don't worry, but surely it will get noticed after some time. Due to my patience, I got 2 offers in Off-Campus from major companies.
