TCS Recruitment Process : An Unimaginable  Experience
This all began with an announcement in a special lecture by Mr. Mayank Aggarwal, our Placement Officer.
On 3rd of August, We were told about the TCS campus placement drive on 1st of september.
All of us were in a state of shock and this news just electirfied us because it was unusual for this college as Companies used to visit here in even semester.
Well, there was a new wave of excitement and zeal for TCS campus drive.
All eligible candidates commenced their preparation for the same.
Anyways,D-day had arrived and everybody was ready for his first placement challenge with his C.V. and all his documents.There were total 129 students eligible for this campus drive(including MCA students).
There were three stages of this very first battle for our future in corporate world.
·        Online Aptitude Touchstone Examination (let's say written as usual).
·        Technical Interview
·        HR Interview
finally it started with aptitude paper and we headed towards Computer Lab which had been set up for TCS TouchStone Examination.There were 35 questions to solve within time limit of 80 minutes.
The paper had a good level of difficulty and comprised of simple as well as tricky and mindpuzzling questions.Out of 129 students, 109 students faced the written exam (as top 5 students were called for direct interview.). 49 students cleared the written apptitude examination.
Special and terrifying incident with me
When all of us were sitting in Seminar Hall and waiting for our Apptitude Examination result, Our TPO came and began to call the names of the students who qualified first round.After he had finished calling the names, i realized that my name was not there in the list. As my written was quite good, i was pretty sure about qualifying this exam.But after finding my name not in the list, i was shocked, i was just feeling like a feather swinging in the air without any destination {it's strange to think like this}.I was just about to leave for my Room.
But MY FRIENDS stopped me and said me to confirm it once more.I decided to do same. But before i could do anything,our another faculty came and he confirmed the names of the selected candidates again and to my immense pleasure and surprise, there was my name in list of qualified candidates{a ton of thanks to Almighty}.
I just looked upwards thanking god and took a deep breath.
I think the happiness felt at this time was quite higher than that of after name of final list of placed students.

Anyways, Let's move ahead.
After clearing aptitude exam, now the next phase was Technical Interview. But now i was pretty confident for this and just briefing my project in my mind. But i couldn't get enough time to do that and was called for T.R.
I collected all my documents and a copy of my C.V. and presented myself before the interviewer and how was the interview is here below :

After returning from Technical Interview, I was feeling quite good and after sitting a few minutes in seminar hall , i immediately got a call for HR interview. I was amazed and thrilled as i was the very first candidate to face the HR interviewer from my year.
I prepared myself for the same and entered into the HR room.
Both of the HR interviewers were almost young.
I wished them good afternoon with a smile and they offered seat to make me comfortable.
HR : So Kuldeep,How was your day?
Me : (With a pleasant and smiling face) told'em that it was great as i cleared Written and Technical round. and now i am here for my HR interview so it feels quite good. :)

Me : NO sir, I don't know.

HR : Okay kuldeep,tell us why you want to be a part of IT/computer field.
Me : I again gave same example (given in Technical round) and one more of fixing a DVD writer issue by tweaking Windows registry.
HR : (applauded me). perfect.. good work.
Me : Thank you sir.
"" Then he didn't ask me any question and told me that i could be placed anywhere in india and there would be a bond of two years""
I replied in affirmative (with a little feeling of getting placed in TCS :)).
HR : okay kuldeep, nice meeting you. Best of luck. you may leave.
Me : Thank you sir.Have a nice day.(passed a smile)
I left my seat and returned to seminar hall with a win-win feeling as both TR and HR round went superb.
Finally after waiting 5 hours, the list of placed candidates was in our TPO's hand. He called the names of qualified students and my name was called in the last. Amazingly all my room-mates also got placed in TCS.

Overall 42 students were selected out of 69 (49 + 20 toppers) students.
Well, this was the whole experience of mine which i got during TCS campus drive.
Best of luck to all of you.
