Please tell us about your Interview procedure at Axtria (Short listing procedure, GDs, Interviews).

Lakshay Aggarwal Axtria Interview Process Business AnalystAxtria has a short selection procedure consisting of three eliminative stages, aptitude test and two interviews. There are four parts in the aptitude test(cocubes) : quant, logical reasoning, verbal and coding.

I recommend all to research about the company before sitting for the test as it consists of a subjective unit testing your knowledge about Axtria. The test was pretty easy. In both the interviews logical, mathematical skills and your commitment towards the profile is tested in form of puzzles, guessestimates, case studies and various HR questions.

 

What and how many internships and projects you did at college? How did you get them?

Being in ECE I did three technical projects, which were part of my curriculum, Power supply(LM723), 8085 Microprocessor based LuckySe7en and MSP430 Puppy Microcontroller based lights out. My first internship was at WhiteSwan Consulting Group. Here I worked as technical intern, as a designer, for project Vapour Absorption Refrigeration System and helped in improvisation for the project Urea Deep Placement Machine.

My second internship was at Mancer Consulting Services where I worked as a part of recruitment team. I got both the internships off campus. I also Co-founded Rotaract Club of Delhi Ashoka, a community based club under Rotary International.

 

What helped you sail through the hurdles and crack one of the finest jobs?

I think the experiences I gathered from all the extra curriculars throughout my college life gave me confidence,  very valuable guidance from my seniors and support of my family and friends helped me overcome all the difficulties. It was the third company I sat for, the interview experiences from the previous two companies mattered a lot.

 

How did you prepare for the placement season? What advice would you give to your juniors regarding the placement season?

Due to the hectic schedule of my internship at Mancer I was not able to prepare much. But I would like to advice my juniors to prepare for the aptitude test, guessestimates, case studies and HR based questions. Also focus on your Resume.

 

What’s the role of academics in getting a good placement at NSIT?

For a non technical job profile percentage doesn’t matter much, but it is advisable to keep your percentage near 70%, atleast not below 65%. Axtria will test your logical reasoning skills but a better percentage will always give you an edge.

 

Would you like to give any general advice to your juniors?

I would like to advise my juniors to first set your mind on which career to go along.  If its analytics then prepare well for the aptitude test. I would like to recommend J George Summers for puzzles. Really focus on your Resume. For particularly Axtria, be honest in the interview!

Good luck!
