I was first for interview. The person who was taking interview come outside n escorted me to the interview table. I wished him. He asked me to give an introduction of myself. Meanwhile he was seeing mine profile… From up to down. For that I was ready n u may say it ws my luck____I had a lot of certificate to show.

He was very much impressed. He asked me about my different subject from first semester. Frankly speaking I was frightened. I couldn't tell him. Who remember____what is chemstry and mechanics.

But suddenly he stopped asking all that. He asked me the difference between unix n linux. I screwed up____

After that he asked me about mine favorate subject____i told computers networks.

He asked what it is____I defined……

He told me to draw a network… I draw an hybrid one____he asked me about token ring. I answered satifatorily… Then he came to different layers… Asked different function of all. Then why TCP/IP. What it is… If not then what. I answered satisfactorily……

After that he asked me to write a program of factorial that compile in first go without any warning or error. I did with for loop. He then asked me to write with recursion____I did.

Consider all condition of negative and positive. Never skip up any condition…

After that he came to operating system and asked about interrupt… Described it to his satisfaction including all taking from interruption handling n mode switch n context switch.

Completed____tech. I was relaxing. Suddenly one member came from came n asked me to follow him. I did.

After going into the room, he told me that he will talk more on programming… At that time I was really scared bcoz I was expecting hr. He gave me a program to write.

Conditin was as follows____

U have to take one number from user of integer type. It is of 32 bit and u have to count the number of 1 and 0 in it. I did it____it was a good program… n u can't do it without practice. So if u want to get into it. Practice programming on paper not directly on moniter… Bcoz writing code on paper is really tough.

After that he asked me question on unix… a senario created that make me laugh today itself.

He asked me that u don't know unix n want to learn it____what u will do it?

I told that first of all i will purchase a book n try to read it. If find any difficulty then consult to faculty then to my senior. He told me that let u don't have any of this thing then what u will do? I told that I will use my internet. Will go to google and type unix tutorial… He starts to smile. Then he asked me that do u know what a ‘MAN’ is?

I replied the appropriate answer____that it is a command to know about a particular command. He told me that can't u use it. That time I told him that… Sir u told that u don't know unix… Then how I will able to use it… n my comp may not have unix install in it…… He started to laugh… He was impressed…

Then he asked me about____networking (tcp/udp/ip), message passing in operating system… Mine second round of tech was superb.

Then after 3 hours I was called for HR____asked me about mine background and mine family background… It was 4th company in my campus… He asked me about any offer from other company. I told him that I m sitting for campus interview for the first time. I didn't appear for any other company. He was shocked… He asked reason. I repeated the same lines what he had told in the ppt 2 days before campus.

Then he asked how u can take such a risk to leave all other company. I told that I was a bit confident that I will get through this exam. Then he told me that u r not… u have done so bad in ur tech. Now what u will do next. I told that after result declaration I will get feebback from u and after improving myself on certain areas I will apply for off campus if not selected from this campus… He was very much satisfied____then he asked me about mine preferable location to work bcoz I had left that column blank in the form what they had given. I told that as Gurgaon, Chnnei and Bangalore all r new to me. I don't mind working anywhere as I have to explore any of these cities.
