As a software engineer in a job search mode, many recent graduates in India expect jobs to flow from ‘brand value’ companies – with fantastic workplaces, endless parties and a lifestyle to boast of. Few begin with the basics – IT jobs, fresher jobs that align with the what excites them as a person or can build on their careers accordingly. And these basics were part of the deal in the story of a job in Josh Technology. And the candidate who made it.
That’s the point from where we begin our testimonial for the day. Ravi’s story. A tale of how a ‘passionate coder’, who likes to solve problems got his big break. With the AMCAT test.
Meet Ravi Prasad
A 2017 graduate of the Maharaja Surajmal Institute of Technology, New Delhi-based Ravi, calls himself a competitive programmer. In fact, his razor-sharp focus on his coding skills ensures that he participates in multiple competitions.
And that focus brought him to consider the route of the AMCAT test, to facilitate his job search.
“I took AMCAT because it provides a platform for many different job opportunities. There are some good companies who hire through the AMCAT test. You also receive job interview calls from regular companies.”
Preparing for the AMCAT Test
Prasad decided to give the AMCAT test with a little preparation. He did so by working on his data structure, algorithms and other programming questions.
Did it work?
“The AMCAT test was good and had questions on aptitude, logical and programming segments. To prepare for it, you just need to clear your basics in aptitude and practice programming questions.”
A good score in the AMCAT test led to interview calls. “I started getting interview calls after a month of taking AMCAT. I received many interview calls almost 4-5 times a week.”
And the interview for the job in Josh Technology
Getting the job in Josh Technology
Ravi’s scores ensured that he was shortlisted for this job in Josh Technology. He went for the job interview and passed through multiple rounds confidently and smoothly.
“The interviews were purely based on data structure and algorithm. The level of interview increased after each and every round.”
It did not sway him away – ensuring that he got the job in the end.
