    My interview took place on 19 july at Murthal, & it was completly HR interview & nothing technical is asked.As this was my first interview in any company , i was very nervous. When i was called , the manager asked about me.At that i was so nervous that i stammered in between. then he asked me why i have chosen computers field.I answered that in school time it was a togh subject for me ,so i took this subject as a challenge,& chosen this field. then he asked about my favourite subjects in school, i replied chemistry & maths. then he asked me few puzzles regarding maths & chemistry which are:-

    1.if u r given 2 beakers half filled with water & another beaker is also half filled with sulphuric acid & i want to empty one beaker then what should i do, should i put water in sulphric acid or acid in water?

    ans. sulphuric in water. many quadrilaterals are there in chessboard?

    this ans i didnt know, but i told him that it will b calculated by permutation & combination by considering rows & columns.

    3. if u have nail enamel bottle which becomes empty, then give ten uses of that empty bottle?

    a)put gum in it

    b) put color for paintings like spray painting

    c)put oil for maching prts in it.

    i have just mentioned  these only

    then he asked if i have any query regarding infy?

    i asked why infy has devlopment centres in south only & not in northern India? which he explained very nicely & sweetly .

    but after this interview my name along with few more students was called again for interview after 2hrs(approx.).At that time  i gave answers very confidently & it was just like talkin with ur seniors or friends. In that interview they asked me about my software skills that i can contribute to infosys & what my skills can provide to infosys.I just told my project work & the languages that i know & told them that i would like to provide best of my work to infosys with honesty & dedication.After that the manager asked that if he give me any project then how will i handle it. I told him each & every point of s/w life cycle from requirement to testing & debugging. then he asked  if u  r the manger how will u handle the project .I described that i 'll assign each person the job acc to his qualification & experience. then he asked how wil u motivate ur team members . i have given 2 -3 points & finally the result was declared after half an hour & i got selected.

    So in the end, i would like to say that interview is nothing but a conversation  in which u r judged just by talkin.Also keep in mind that dont try to bulf the other person bcoz these persons r perfect mnd readers & they can easily catch what is inside u. so dont worry it is very easy to get through infy by just a bit of hard work & communication skills.

    All the best
