When it comes to skills, the interviewer checks mainly three skills.

1.Proficiency in programming language.

Let’s know more about how these multi national companies select the people or what are the criterions they followed.

1.Eligibility criteria

            Most of the companies may place a cut off mark to at least attend the interview. In 2011-2012 cut off mark was 60%. Now it is extended to 65,70 and 75%. Certain companies have no cut off marks. Moreover, companies also have a condition that the person who is attending the interview should not have any backlogs. This not mandatory for all companies. Some of them allow to appear for interview even if he or she has backlogs.

2.Written test

            This is the first step in an interview. It may contain both technical as well as aptitude questions. The pattern, Question numbers and the method of test may vary according to different companies. Some companies use pen-paper mode of examination where as some prefer online test. For instance, Wipro has five different testing area like verbal ability, quantitative aptitude, reasoning, technical, and essay writing. The number of questions in Wipro test pattern is 68 with no negative marking and the time duration for the test is 95 minutes while Infosys has 65 questions from verbal ability, quantitative aptitude, analytical and logical reasoning and they provide 95 minutes to complete the test. Most of the companies do not have negative marking.

There are an enormous amount websites are available to do the practice test. So be practice with these.

3.Technical interview

            If you are cleared the written test, technical interview is a turning point in your life. If you can perform well in this, you are very close to your dream. In technical interview, initially the interviewer ask about your personal details like name, describe about yourself and so on. So this is actually a chance to impress the interviewer. Try to say some thing different that is not said by others. Then the interviewer will ask questions from the projects that you are done during your academic period. In addition they also ask questions about the programming languages that you are mentioned in the resume. So if you are thoroughly known about your projects and programming languages you can very easily get through it.

4.HR interview
