CTS Technical Interview-
Sir who took my interview was very cool and smart. He asked me first of all to give my introduction which I did.
Sir- Explain your project.I did.

Sir- Draw flow chart of your project.I did. but did a small mistake. Then he said if the user enters wrong password, won't you give him other chance. I said yes I will and corrected it. then we both smiled :)
Sir- Anyone can manipulate your database.
me- no we have passwords on our databases.

Sir- But I can hack it if I know hacking.
me- Sry sir but I am not much aware about hacking.

Sir- ohk. what was your elective subject in VII sem.
me- Network and web security,

Sir- Tell me about it.
me- I did. drawn the OSI layers and explained all their functions.

Sir- ohk which programming languages do you know.
I said C and C++.

Sir- R you comfortable if we will shift you to some other technology.
I said absolutely sir. (wide smile :D )

Sir- Explain Polymorphism. I did. it is of 2 types. In Static we have same name different parameters. In dynamic we implement through inheritance or virtual function. ( he was satisfied n smiled to me again :D )

Sir- so you are from CSE, you must have knowledge about DBMS.
I said yes obviously. then he gave me to tables and it was a simple sql query using inner joins.
Now he was satisfied he asked me about whether you are ready for relocation and what do you expect from CTS.

I said I expect growth and financial security from CTS. He seemed bored of my answer. so I said I also want to go abroad (^_^). he laughed and said It is a very boring .
I said sir I have never gone abroad so I want to experience it.
Sir- is that your only aim ;)
I said no no definitely not. just one of my aims :D

Sir- sry for bothering you with so many questions :) have a good day.
me- It's absolutely fine sir. have a great day. shakes hand. :D 
so my interview went through 25 minutes and it was a very good experience :) be confident and behave like the interviewer wants you to behave. be raw and simple :)
within 10 seconds I was approved for HR interview.

CTS HR Interview.
Mam- how are you doing.
me- very well.

Mam- good. tell me what qualities a team member should have.
me- He should have good listening skills, should be open to discussions so that optimal solution should come out. he should also think from team's perspective than as an individual.
Mam- Are you location flexible.
me- absolutely. :)
mam- if we put you in a different sector will be ok with it.
me- yes mam I am a fresher I want to experience whatever comes my way.
mam- what r your achievements.
me- Ncc, volleyball etc.
mam- ohk thank you.
so HR interview seemed more like a formality and went through only 5 minutes. say yes yes to all flexibility questions with a smile throughout :) 
finally on 29th of January results came out and 223 students were selected.

I felt very relaxed to finally get placed after being rejected continuously by Zycus, Zenser and TCS :D
so people believe in yourself and prepare well and know that perseverance is a big quality. 
Thank you and all the best!!
