Sir i am sharing my experience and format here for help of other students.Thank you once again for your help and Sandeep Mittal sir for referring me.

IBM visited our college in Noida for the recruitment of Associate System Engineer. It was two days process.

250 students participated in the placement process

The selection process was carried out in three steps:

1. Online Test
2. Psychometric Test
3. Technical & HR Interview

Online test was conducted on first day while psychometric test and technical & HR interview, were both conducted on second day.

1. Online Test

The online test was just like aptitude test. It consisted of three subjects:

a. Series completion – There were 18 questions from series. Some sample questions are:

b. Quantitative aptitude – This also consisted of 18 questions. The questions were from topics, like percentage, profit loss, volume etc.

c. Business communication – It had total 22 questions which were divided into two parts – 21 objective type questions and 1 subjective question.

Samples of objective questions are:

– loose
– limp
– double
– firm

– information
– training
– message
– knowledge

– Formality
– Content
– Writing skills
– Language

– think
– work
– behave
– All of these

Subjective question asked us to write the format of a business letter.

The total time for each question was 2 minutes and 15 seconds.

105 students were shortlisted for the next round.

2. Psychometric Test

This round is also called WSI – Work Style Inventory. In this 100 questions were asked related to day-to-day life situations and how we tackle them. Those were simple but tricky.

There was no time limit provided for this.

This was also an elimination round. Around 75 students were selected for the interview process.

3. Technical & HR Interview

Both interviews were conducted at one time. But, before attempting interview, you have to take your biometric test and submit one government ID proof along with CV.

In interview, I was asked about introduction, hobbies, one situational question and rest were from technical sections.

As my resume had a mention of exams I had taken, he asked my score & rank.

Confirmation mail was received by us after 48 hours. 60 students made it to IBM.

Some important tips that will help you crack the test and interview:

Ping me if you have any doubts 😀 cheers!

For getting a referral you need to contact company employees and then they will refer you by submitting your application through their employee referral on IBM portal and then you will get a mail after that . Once they refer you , you will have to complete the application process by logging in to the ibm portal .. you can contact ibm employees via linkedin through this link : (Once you login to linkedin you will be able to access this link) or through some FB contacts here : (Ask them to refer you for this JOB ID : 79285BR )
