Student interview from a recent Tech Mahindra Placement Drive

“I interviewed with Tech Mahindra in March for the position of an Assistant Software Engineer. I applied for the position via my placement office, which has association with Firstnaukri. The application went through online. Later I was communicated about the placement drive which was about to take place in my campus. I met the eligibility criteria and thereby got shortlisted for the written round.

The interview comprised of 4 rounds. I appeared for the online written test and subsequently got selected for the further rounds so on and so forth. I went on clearing all the rounds and eventually ended up in the HR Interview round. It was a smooth process and my preparation in advance helped me crack it easily. I am waiting for my official offer letter now”
