To be very frank, no body likes the interview process , and especially the person who is being interviewed.One has to be at his/her best behaviour.One gets only one shot at the selection process.From college pass out to a mid-level experienced professional , i have faced around 20-25 interviews.But again hard work by preparing for every interview surely pays off.I am jotting down my experiences with MINDTREE gurgaon.
My profile being a 5+ years exp guy on java/j2ee , the companys screening process consisted of 3 round of interviews – Technical/Managerial/HR
Technical Interviewer: Please briefly describe yourself.

Technical Interviewer: He asked me Questions ranging from basic Object Oriented Questions to latest trends in the market.
Myself: I explained each and every answer confidently.I had also prepared for technical interviews from various technical Questionares.
Technical Interviewer:Since the company is looking for the following skill sets Hot frameworks like Struts, Spring, Hibernate will be added advantage.They asked various questions on the topics.
Myself: I tried to Explain all that i had learned as a part of my 5 year developed skillsets.
Technical Interviewer:Since Knowledge of one rdbms is necessary. Queries on rdbms concepts , and design patterns are also a part of the interviewers Questionnaire.
Myself: Tried to Explain and satisfy the interviewer on every Question asked , even though i am week in RDBMS , I managed to satisfy the interviewer as only basic concepts were asked.

Managerial Interviewer: Any idea about what Services portifolio MINDTREE offers.?
Myself: Do your prior homework.I told them that i have heard good outlook in the market about its Management.and also described the portfolio of Mindtree.
After passing the managerial round , i was sent for 1 final HR Round.
