hey friends i wanna know what kind of skills (Technical) are required in person so as to get selected in a big MNC like infy????

And if i know just the basics of something lets say Oracle database is it good to add it in my resume, as i know just the basics???? 😁
@Reya • 19 Dec, 2010 Re: Skills Required

No, if u know the basics alone dont add it your resume!You can add only when you have a thorough knowledge of that subject.
@Insatiable • 19 Dec, 2010 Re: Skills Required

praveena can i do it like this Oracle 11g(Basics) will it work out ?????
@Reya • 19 Dec, 2010 Re: Skills Required

No you should not.They will assume that you know everything whatever you put in your resume.If you dont have knowledge about that particular area dont add that to your resume.
@Insatiable • 19 Dec, 2010 Re: Skills Required

but i suppose its good that if one knows everything whatever he/she has written is his/her resume.. okhay i know all the basics now am i eligible to write Oracle 11g(Basics) ????
@Reya • 19 Dec, 2010 @Insatiable:If you know about oracle then what is the purpose of mentioning basics in the bracket??It shows that you know only the basics!Did you get me?

you can write in your resume that you know ,its fine to know basics at the frehers level so Don't worry just show your confidence.
@Insatiable • 20 Dec, 2010 yeah that msg has really boosted me up thanks cool.... 😀
@Kaustubh Katdare • 20 Dec, 2010 For Infosys, you need to be good at puzzle solving and good at engineering subjects. If you are from CS/IT background, then you are supposed to be good at programming. I think you all should make a note of our posts on VoiCE. There are lot of interesting posts our authors have written that will help you crack Interviews. VoiCE | CrazyEngineers
@Insatiable • 20 Dec, 2010 thanks biggie, biggie i belong to ECE branch but i've done Java, Oracle Database and HTML they are related with IT/CSE so if i write these things in my resume will these things be favouring me ???? his question would be why you opted for ECE then that would be jittery .... for me so how should i handle it biggie pls help me out........

Things won't favor you just because they appear in your resume. Be prepared to answer questions on them. If the interviewer is skilled in Java or Oracle, he/she might ask you questions on those topics. You should be able to answer the basic questions, if not things could go against you. It's plain simple. If you mention it in your resume, you have to know the basics.

Why you opted for CE - is your own personal reason. I'd definitely ask that question to you if I were interviewing you. You will have to convince Interviewer that you still love computers and programming; though your branch is not directly related to any of it. First tell me if you want a job in software Industry, why did you not opt for computer science or IT or similar branch?
@Insatiable • 20 Dec, 2010 ok ya i know the basics, biggie i didn't knew anything about Engineering Fields, i am one of those who is into this not bec of his/her choice, so i just banked upon ECE, i didn't even had any computer or lappy at that time 😔 so i didn't knew anything about IT/CSE but as i became familiar with all this stuff, i found out that my interest lies somewhere else so i did Java and HTML and now i am into Databases. 😀

I too notice the same thing while preparing for infosys.... The kind of apti questions asked till now were not very difficult. But no more than half of the students clear the apti. I didn't understand why.....?? On what criteria infosys shortlist the students....??
(Infosys is coming for the campus drive in our college on Dec 30th, 2010.)
@Insatiable • 26 Dec, 2010 thanks megha and deepika, and deepika best of luck to you for the recruitment.
@Deepika Bansal • 27 Dec, 2010 Thank you insatiable.. 😀😀
@Ankita Katdare • 02 Feb, 2016 Sorry for digging into an older discussion, but I think it's only wise to continue this one than creating a new one.

What does it take for an engineer to get placed in top MNCs in India?
^ This question seems to be lingering in the mind of every final year student, especially when companies coming to recruit via campus placements are sparse. So, here are the things that you need to know to understand what it is that companies look for in freshers.

1. Good communication skills. Well spoken English and in writing is a pre-requisite. It ups your chances manifold in any placement scenario.

2. Proficiency in at least 1 subject of your interest. When I say proficiency - I mean you are top of the class in that subject. You've done practical work in that area and are learning all you can on your own.

The subject could be anything from Databases to Programming languages and OSes to software testing, a specialised software, ERP solutions.. the list is endless.
You need to pick one topic that really interests you and really go for it. Do not waste time being the jack of all trades. Understand the basics of all subjects and focus on building top-level skills in that one particular subject.
This is going to really SHINE in your resume.

3. Some kind of extra-curricular activity. If you say that you can't do anything else, you are doomed. You need to have done at least one extra-curricular activity - be it sports, organizing events, dancing, culinary, music, art, elocutions, debates, social work anything! The person who comes to recruit you should know that you are an 'active' person and not just dormant human being who has done nothing but go to college and come back home.

4. If you are still in your 2nd year or 3rd year in engineering college, chances are that you still have enough time before you sit for placement rounds - to earn really GOOD grades. Nothing works like good grades when clearing the 'first round' for getting placed in an MNC. I won't stretch it and say that's the ONLY thin you need to get the job. But it really does help you a lot in Indian MNCs to outshine others.

5. Always find ways to showcase all the work you've done so far. If you have built cool stuff, written awesome code - put it up on a blog or a personal webpage. Take part in online/offline contests and showcase your rank. Really refine your portfolio so that anyone who googles about you - does not land up only on your Facebook profile. Do good stuff and then project it to the world. That's the only way to prove your mettle.
