Vipul Bajaj

Vipul Bajaj graduating from IIT Kanpur, Branch- Ee-Cse department as a Graduate (B.Tech) in 2020 has been placed as Research Engineer in Cohesity.

a) Other companies that I was shortlisted for b) Analysis of available options (based on profile, growth, compensation, Brand Name, etc) Apple, Google, QuadEye, Graviton

For coding I did interviewbit, leetcode and to some extent GFG. Atcoder DP educational contest is also good. And keep an eye on past year questions for that company. For quant, I did Brainstellar, 50 CP in probability, cseblog, etc. Do them multiple times.

I was a bit nervous on the interview day. The tests went well but there was the usual nervousness. The initial shortlists disappointed me but by the D-day, I had enough shortlists to land me in a decent job. Anyway, no one can sit for more than 3 companies properly in Day 1, Slot 1. And similar is the case for other slots too.

Don't fret much over not getting selected for every company. There are a lot of opportunities, you'll definitely land a good enough job. Do prepare hard starting August, giving almost all your time to placement prep in case you're not regular with it. Don't plagiarize from internet as it is. Hackerrank has strong internet plagiarizm checking mechanism.
