IBM Interview Experience - Goa, October 13-14, 2014.


Greetings everyone !!! I am a B.Tech graduate in Electrical & Electronics Engineering from National Institute Of Technology Goa (NITG), class of 2K15 ! I would like to share my placement experience with IBM ! :).

Position   : Global Business Services (GBS).
Role        : Systems Engineer.
Eligibility : 60% and above in 10th and 12th, CGPA 6.5 and above.

The selection process consists of three phases split over 2 days.

1) APTITUDE ASSESSMENT TEST :-

It consists of 2 parts. Number series in the first half and Aptitude questions in the second half, each question will have a time limit of 2:15 minutes. 

18 series + 18 aptitude questions.

For aptitude go through basic formulas on profit and loss, SI & CI, and permutation combination , distance & speed.

Note - You are allowed to use only system calculators for calculation.

2) ENGLISH ASSESSMENT TEST BY KENEXA :-

The whole test is of 20 minutes with no timer in each question.

For this kindly go through American and British Business Letter format thoroughly, Etiquette's, Active & Passive Voice, Sentence Correction, Spotting Error, True or false type questions.

3) PERSONAL/HR/TECHNICAL INTERVIEW :-

My interview lasted for 35 minutes.

My interviewer was a kind person. He briefed me about himself saying there was no need to panic as he himself was not from CS/IT background (This eliminated the chances of him asking me to write a code).

Basic HR questions included:

(i) Why IBM?
(ii) Introduce yourself .
(iii) My final year B.Tech Project.
(iv) Are you willing to relocate?
(v) What is SAP ?
(vi) What are the challenges you might face at IBM?
(vii) Do you plan to go for further studies?

They were basically checking my communication skills and my approach to a particular situation.

TIPS :

You may refer to indiabix.
Book : Quantitative Aptitude by R. S. Aggarwal.

At the end of the interview, they will definitely ask you if you have any questions for them. Do ask a couple of questions. It shows that you are interested in joining them.

A total of 176 students appeared from NIT Goa & GEC, of which 51 were selected.

MY TAKE :

If you are able to clear the initial 2 rounds, 90 % chances are there you will sail through the 3rd round.

Non CS/IT guys do not be intimidated by your CSE counterparts , all are evaluated at a fair level.

Practice makes perfect !!!

GOOD LUCK! :).
