Yuvraj, studying in IIT Kanpur as a B.Tech student will do his summer internship in Research Intern (Big Data Labs) profile at Adobe

QUESTIONS FOR ANSWER - WHEN DID YOU START? Started mid-July and prepared for around 35-40 days - FOR WHAT ALL PROFILES DID YOU PREPARE SOFTWARE, ML (RESEARCH) AND QUANT BASED PROFILES - HOW PART- - CODING REVISED DSA COURSE CONTENT (ESO207) AND USED GEEKSFORGEEKS TO LEARN ANY NEW CONCEPT. COMPLETED AROUND 80% OF THE PROGRAMMING TRACK OF INTERVIEWBIT, PRACTICED SELECTED QUESTIONS FROM LEETCODE. - APTITUDE/QUANT REVISED PROBABILITY COURSE CONTENT (CS203) AND REVIEWED BASIC ML AND LA CONCEPTS. SOLVED PROBABILITY & DISCRETE MATH PUZZLES FROM BRAINSTELLAR AND THE BOOK “50 CHALLENGING PROBLEMS IN PROBABILITY”. - RESUME/HR MENTIONED ONLY THE RELEVANT DETAILS AND CONTACTED A FEW SENIORS TO GET MY RESUME DRAFTS REVIEWED. - RESUME PREP TIPS - STAY IN CONTACT WITH SOME SENIORS WHO CAN REVIEW YOUR RESUME AND GIVE TIMELY FEEDBACK RELATED TO FORMAT, WRITING STYLE, CONTENT FILTERING ETC. - SEE A FEW RESUMES OF SENIORS WHO TARGETED SIMILAR PROFILES AS YOU. - MAKE SURE TO MENTION ONLY RELEVANT INFORMATION IN ONE-PAGE RESUMES (FOR EXAMPLE, EXTRACURRICS AND POR’S DO NOT MATTER MUCH FOR TECHNICAL PROFILES).

Branch : CSE, EE, MTH, CPI > 8.5 (Walk-in offer to 2-3 students with extremely high CPI)

MAJOR POINTS TO COVER- - INTERVIEW EXPERIENCE THERE WAS JUST 1 ROUND AND THE INTERVIEWER WAS REALLY NICE. MOST OF THE TIME WAS SPENT IN DISCUSSING MY PROJECTS AND INTERNSHIPS IN DEPTH. A FEW DSA AND BASIC ML QUESTIONS WERE ASKED TOWARDS THE END. - PREP TIPS – IN GENERAL + COMPANY SPECIFIC (IF ANY) GENERAL TIP : IF YOU ARE TARGETING TECHNICAL PROFILES, JUST MAKE SURE TO PRACTICE DSA PROBLEMS AS MUCH AS YOU CAN. PREFERABLE PLATFORMS ARE CODEFORCES, INTERVIEWBIT AND LEETCODE. INTERVIEWBIT HAS SELECTED QUESTIONS FROM LEETCODE, SO WILL BE A GOOD IDEA TO PRACTICE THOSE QUESTIONS ON LEETCODE (HAS BETTER TEST CASES AND DISCUSSIONS). ADOBE SPECIFIC : - PRACTICE DSA, PROBABILITY, PUZZLES - REVIEW LINEAR ALGEBRA, ML FUNDAMENTALS - ADOBE DOES LIKE TO SEE A GOOD CPI ON THE RESUME (>9 WOULD SERVE WELL) SINCE ITS A “RESEARCH” INTERN - GOOD ML RELATED EXPERIENCE WOULD BE A CHERRY ON TOP COHESITY SPECIFIC (OPENED ONLY FOR CSE) : - PRACTICE DSA (ESPECIALLY TREES AND DP) - BE WELL VERSED WITH THE LANGUAGE (PREFERABLY C++) - HOW TO PLAN MY SUMMERS- INTERN? PROJECT? INTERN PREP? DEPENDS ON THE PROFILE(S) YOU ARE TARGETING AND THE CODING EXPERIENCE YOU ALREADY HAVE. FOR EXAMPLE, IF TARGETING ADOBE, WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO DO SOME NICE ML RELATED PROJECT/INTERNSHIP AND CARRY ON PREPARATION ALONGSIDE OR IF TARGETING SOME HIGH END SOFTWARE PROFILE, WON’T HARM IF YOU SPEND THE ENTIRE SUMMER JUST CODING SINCE THE COMPETITION IS FIERCE.
