Hello Friends !!!
I am Divya Diwakar, College – Indira Gandhi Engineering College, Sagar ( m.p )
I just want to share my experience of getting placed at Consagous Technologies.
On 23th of May 2012 there was an open campus drive of Consagous Technologies in Adina college , Sagar (m.p.). I was very excited to take part in it.
Firstly, they started with a seminar, a small introduction about the company. Then the placement process started.
The recruitment process of Consagous had three rounds.
1. Written test
2. Group discussion
3. Technical interview / HR

Written Test :

It was objective type with 40 questions in 40 mins. The written test paper had three sets set A , set B and set C. I got set C. Basically the question were from network connection with database ,output of programs on C, C++, java, asp.net, php , data structure and Aptitude questions included topics like Time & Distance, simple interest ,average, Percentage, Ratio & Proportion etc.There was no negative marking in the written test.

Some of them which I remember are-

1. Name two files used to make a network connection with database?

2. In a hash table key , the value cannot be null but it can be-
(a) True (b) False

3. The time taken by boat to travel 4 meters dowmstream is 4 hours 48 min and that the upstream 4 hours .Find the speed of the boat in still water and the speed of the stream.

4. In a family there are two grandparents whose average age is 67 and there are two parents whose average age is 42 and there are three children of average age 6 What is the total average age of the family?

5. There were two rooms of students room A and room B.If 10 students from room A are transferred to room B then the no of students in both the room will be equal .If 20 students from room B are transferred to room A then the no. of students in room A will be double the no of students in room A.Then what are the no. of students in room A?
And many more….

Then after few hours the result of written test was announced , and fortunately I was selected among the 80-100 other students. After written test 21 students were shortlisted and went through 2nd round .

GD Round:
In this round , all 21 students divided into two teams and went through group discussion process. Topic of our GD was “Spirituality and Technology” and it held for 15 to 20 min. It was the very nice discussion and most of them took part in it.
After GD round 11 students were shortlisted. Then the next round was Technical and HR interview.

HR and Technical Interview:

Finally after 2nd Round I had been selected for HR and Technical Interview Round .At that time also I was full of excitement for my PI , though nervous also. I just prayed to God , took my parents name and entered in the room, As I entered I saw three people there inside the room I wished all of them, and they offered me the chair, I replied with thank you sir thank you mam.

HR questions:

• Introduce yourself
• Are you interested in business of your father ?(As I mentioned my father is a businessman)
• Why do we take you in consagous?
• Position after five year
• What you know about Consagous?

Technical question:

• what is object –oriented programming?
• Do you think java is secure and why?
• What is the difference between abstraction and encapsulation?
And many more……

All you have to be confident and have positive attitude during the interview.
Really it was a very good experience with HR sir and with his team.

And just after half an hour the results had been declared , 5 students were selected and fortunately with God Grace I was one of them, that was one of the most cherishable moment of my life.
I would like to thank Consagous Technologies to give me such a big opportunity , thank you so much.!
