For cse students: As they are the bulk recruiters, Unless you screw your interview badly you will not get selected.

No. of Candidate applied And Points that Worked in Favour

The interviewers are very friendly( tech 2-members, HR 2-members).<br />
At first, i felt a little tensed while going to interview, but after answering some 2 or 3 questions, i've totally involved<br />
in answering the questions.<br />
In the technical interview, i'm unable to catch the basic point of answering the question. so, he asked some other<br />
questions, which i've answered. Then he said,"this is the clue for the previous qn, now answer it".
