Interview details

Cognizant interview preparation:Interview preparation tips for other job seekers - This interview was partially technical and partially behavioral oriented. It lasted for about 1 hour. The interviewer wanted to test both my knowledge and communication skills. Most of the questions asked to me were related to my B.Tech curriculum i.e. computer science related topics, like Java and Data structure. Luckily I was able to answer most of the questions correctly. I tried to answer each question with examples. It was my first on-campus interview, and I think I did pretty well for a fresher. You need to stay calm and should apply presence of mind.
