@Ankita Katdare • 01 Dec, 2010
Campus recruitment are on the upsurge. Lots of final year students are discussing & asking questions about Infosys recruitment process.

Can anybody share with us about the the latest Infosys Recruitment procedure?
@Kaustubh Katdare • 01 Dec, 2010 Someone correct me if this's been updated in 2010 -

1. Logical/Puzzle Solving Test -

Exam duration is 90 minutes, with first 60 dedicated for solving 10 puzzles and remaining 30 minutes to answer about 45 English questions. Quite a few test takers have said that it's only the puzzles section that is moderately difficult. The English test is very easy. All you need to crack it is basic English skills. However, you might have to prepare for the puzzles section. The most recommended book is 'Shakuntala Devi''s puzzles book. It's recommend that you solve the complete book and understand 'the way' in which they are solved. Focus on the puzzle solving procedure - that's most important when you get unseen puzzles.

2. Those who clear the first test are called for personal interview. Now, you might take it for granted that those who crack the first test will get selected in the personal interview; unless you are a total disaster when it comes to speaking. You must be able to communicate in English. Don't be in a hurry to answer the questions. Just take your time, think before you speak and you'll find yourself inside Infosys.

If you have questions on how to prepare for Infosys or any other companies, post them here. We all CEans are eager to help you. Keep check on this section: CE - Careers | Jobs | Higher Education
@Yamini L • 01 Dec, 2010 As far i know, even now there are only 2 rounds in the selection process of infosys.
First as always would be an aptitude test.You are expected to have good problem solving and time managing skills.

The areas you might me tested on include logical reasoning, data interpretation, sufficiency and verbal ability.
Regarding HR round (a bit tricky) , people expect you to know each and every word mentioned in your resume.

You might be asked to cite situations in real life wherein you acted as a good leader or a good team player. The only thing is that you must be able to convince them that you have the willingness to learn any new technology and that you have good soft skills.

In fact, most of the top people at infosys are from non IT / computer discipline.
They never expect you to be technically very sound,the only thing they expect is whether you have a open heart and positive attitude towards your work.
@Kaustubh Katdare • 01 Dec, 2010 @Miniy: Yeah, As I've said in many other posts that the "ONE" thing recruiters are looking for is "Will I be happy to have this person in my team?". If the answer is yes, you'll get selected. If no, you might be recommended for another interview or opinion will be left for someone else on the Interview panel.
@Deepika Bansal • 02 Dec, 2010 What type of questions are there in the aptitude test.......Please let know about both the puzzles and the verbal question...

PS: I am not very confident about my aptitude.....
@Saandeep Sreerambatla • 02 Dec, 2010 To gain confidence in solving Aptitude I recommend to solve all the questions from the book R.S. Aggarwal. You will automatically gain confidence.

Puzzles: Shakuntala Devi.

You can post your questions in forum if you dont get the answer and moreover there are many interesting questions and puzzles in section.

PS: I am not very confident about my aptitude.....
Mostly, your math skills would be tested for..regarding verbal , you will be given a long passage and based on that they might ask simple questions. The most important thing is once you go through the whole passage you can easily find out the answer, but you will not have enough time to do so.

Long back, in infosys selection process you will get questions only from shakunthala devi, but now as the pattern is changed they dont concentrate much on that..
May you might be asked to solve one or two puzzles in the HR round, just to know how good you are in problem solving. The way you approach a problem is most important rather than whether you solve it or not. Try to avoid brute force methods.
@Deepika Bansal • 04 Dec, 2010 Thank you both....... 😛
Now i have got an idea..........
