    Hi Friends,
    This is Sourabh Kumar Dash HP conducted its off-campus recruitment on 11th June, 2010. It was a pooled campus. Almost all the engineering colleges from Orissa participated in this off-campus recruitment.
    A total of around 3000 students participated in this recruitment drive. Only circuit branches were allowed to appear for the campus selection.
    Selection Process   
    1. Written
    2. GD
    3. Technical Interview
    4. HR Interview

    1. Written exam

    As like other placement exams, it was also an objective based exam. It was containing questions from logical analysis, few questions from microprocessors (Basics of 8085 & 8086), English passage, aptitude (R.S Aggrawal is sufficient 4 this) and few synonyms and antonyms. Each section was having sectional cutoff. So try to score max in every section.
    Around 100 students were able to qualify this stage.

    2. Group Discussion

    Each group was comprising of 10 students. Each group got different topic.

    For my group it was "Should post IPL parties be banned?" As soon as the GD started, everyone was in a hurry to tell his points. No one was listening to anyone. It was like a fish market.

    Always remember that someone is monitoring you. Try to be a good listener. Put your points confidently.Try to manage the group, it creates a good impression. I followed the same technique and by god grace, cleared the GD round also. Finally around 65 students were left.

    3.Technical Interview
    In this round, i was asked following questions.

    1. As soon as i entered the room,one of the 2 HR asked me "Are u feeling nervous"? I replied honestly " Yes a little bit."

    2. Tell me about yourself..?

    3. He asked few questions related to my trainings that i have undergone during my summer vacations.

    4. One of the HR asked " Why u want to join hp ?"

    5. If some other company will be providing you more ctc, will you leave hp?

    6. Which gates are used in escalators.

    The HRs were the coolest one I have ever met. They were very supportive and friendly. In this round a part from your technical knowledge they are checking your communication skills and your way of delivering answers.

    Finally around 32 students were able to clear this round.

    4. HR Interview round:

    It was a very easy round. Here again they are concentrating on your communication skill and your confidence

    The? s are very easy they asked me
    Tell me something about yourself?

    They gave me some equations to solve (2 equations 3 variables type can't be solved as it requires 1 more equation to solve)

    One situational based question. (Suppose you are on your way to give your semester exam and on your way you found a pregnant lady who is just going to deleiver her baby. What will you do.? Either you will help the lady or will leave ur semester exam?)

    Some questions on strengths & weakness.

    Finally out of 32 candidate only 27 were selected. Luckily I was one of them.
    Best of luck freinds. Never blame your luck because "luck only favours the brave and the prepared". Hope to see you in hp
