Well.. I just returned from a MS Interview for an Internship position. Must say there are lot of funny things the way people here conduct interviews, and the way Indian IT companies conduct interviews:
“And dress casually. Wear whatever makes you most comfortable. Chances are, that’s exactly what your interviewers will be wearing.”
Sure enough, I went in T shirt and Jeans. My interviewer was almost in shorts and chappals (Flip-flops, for the Americans).
I just decided to make a comparison between MS and some Indian Companies.
MS – “This guy designs software well enough. Let me take him”.
Indian – “This guy’s shirt design is gaudy. No manners! Reject”
MS – “This guy has enthusiasm to change the world! Take him!”
Indian – “This guy is overqualified”
MS – “Write a program to print numbers of an array in random order”
Indian – “What comes next after 1, 2 ,3, 4?”
MS – “This guy has a life! He loves to hike apart from coding”
Indian – “This guy is distracted in life”
MS – If you have issues with relocation and are very talented, we will use your talent from your convenient location.
Indian – If you don’t listen to me and go to Hyderabad, someone else will!
