Information technology is a revolutionary phenomenon experienced throughout the world. Individuals, organizations, Governments and Nations are running fast to keep themselves ahead of others in this filed. For computer professionals there is a lot of money to earn and there is a lot of comfort and luxury to be en oyed. !nd there is a lot of pride and status in the society to be grabbed. "ill Gates of #icrosoft $orporation, %arry &llison of 'racle $orporation, (cott #ecneil of (un #icro (ystems, &ric &.(chmmidt, (ergey "rin of Google are the leading personalities who shot into fame and fortune from almost nothing. )oday they en oy exceptional status and respect in the society. #ost of the leading I) companies in India are involved in software development, hardware development, internet protocols, animations, graphics, artificial intelligence, convergence, voice transmission and recognition. *eople would visualize industry as a factory making some products, engaging blue colored workers. *roducts manufactured were primarily core sector items like construction steel, cement, textiles, pharma, biscuit, edible oils etc. essential features of the business model were + demand was always more than the supply. No need for great marketing skills and no need for large inventory management and logistics planning. No sensitivity to costumer choice or delivery time. $ustomer has to place an order and wait for long. $lassic examples are "a a ,then -espa. scooter, &$I% )- / "(N% landing phone. For "a a scooter or "(N% phone, customers were waiting for 01 to 02 years. For &$I% )- ,even black / white. people waited for 3 to 04 months after placing an order. *roduction models were like small batch involving very little or production planning or industrial &ngineering techni5ues, then mass production + shift wise targets were fixed to the workers after time / motion study, then came automation to meet the growing demand + !utomatic machines increased outputs in several multiples. )hen came the I) revolution. $!6 ,computer !ided 6esign. / $!# ,computer aided manufacturing. have been extensively used by all organizations. )hrough the use of computers one can see the end product even before starting the manufacturing process. $hip based gadgets monitored production / 5uality in the manufacturing plants. I) industry is now essential part of all industries. "usinesses are leveraging I) even more to solve critical and strategic aims of organizations. !ll of us appreciate the fact I) industry has created enormous employment opportunities for Indians within the country and outside. Firstly those of the Indian engineers who migrated to 7(! in seventies have made a mark for themselves by their superior performance levels. #any of our engineers from II)s and other engineering colleges have excelled in their obs in 7(! as they stood up to tough competition from the locals. #any have been working for the best8known corporates of the world and many more have been working in leading universities and business schools. )hen came the Information )echnology boom. "ack in India pioneers like N 9 Narayana #urthy of Infosys )echnologies and !zim premi i of :ipro )echnologies have started their businesses with great vision. :hat started as small I) outfits have snowballed into world renounced conglomerated. )heir expertise in the field of computers and their persuasive and convincing abilities have proven to the entire world, that the best brains are in India. 'ver the years the entire world started looking to India for wide range of solutions in the field of information technology. :hile F. $ ;ohli of )!)! $onsultancy is the pioneer of software industry in India, #r N 9.Narayana #urthy of Infosys )echnologies is a great visionary. <is vision in the costing and billing of =engineers time> set the foundation. &ven after paying very high salaries to its employees mosts of I) companies are making huge profits. ?1@ net profits were unheard of in the past Indian I) prowess was exhibited to entire world. 9apid growth came in. Internal accruals were enormous. #ost of the I) companies have no bank borrowings $omputerization of manufacturing, banking / financials, marketing, customer service has became )<& N&$&((I)A. :ith computer as growth engine, people with brilliant brains and good interactive and communication skills are in great demand.

India is the seventh largest country by geographical area, and the most populous country in the world. )he economy of India is the fourth largest in the world as measured by purchasing power parity,***.. India is the second fastest growing ma or economy in the world. )he Indian semiconductor design industry, comprised of -%(I design, board design and embedded software companies, has design companies clustered around "angalore, 6elhiKNoida, <yderabad, $hennai, with presence also in *une, !hmedabad and Goa. !ll the global top ten fabless design companies have India operations and 0G of the top 42 semiconductor companies have a strong presence here. )hese companies primarily address an international demand with increasing adaptation of design to address domestic re5uirements. India provides an advantage with a 5uick turnaround time that helps early market access, and a high 5uality workforce. IndiaBs semiconductor industry employs the cream of engineering talent and generates I* in an environment that is conductive for I* rights )he Indian chip design industry is involved in end to end design activities ranging from chip architecture, development, design verification and layout, all the way to design tape out. )he semiconductor design industry had a turnover of 7(6 I.4 billion in 4112 with an engineering workforce of around G2111. It is estimated to reach 7(6 ?I billion by the year 4102. )he industry will provide obs to GF1,111 professionals with a $!G9 of around I1@ for this period )he strong foundation that the design community has established is seen as a key factor for success as India moves toward a semiconductor manufacturing industry. <aving carved a niche in global software development and services outsourcing, IndiaJs search for the next big thing in high8tech could see it take on the rest of !sia in the crowded chip manufacturing market. (emiconductor firms such as Intel $orp., !dvanced #icro 6evices Inc. and Freescale (emiconductor Inc. have already tapped India for chip design, but not manufacturing New government incentives to boost chip making, coupled with IndiaJs low labour costs and surging demand for electronic goods from a fast8growing middle class, could change that. LIndia would be the only country in the world with robust models in chip design, chip manufacturing and electronics manufacturing,L said *oornima (henoy, president of lobby group India (emiconductor !ssociation In #arch, <industan (emiconductor #anufacturing $orp., which is backed by a group of Indian investors based in (ilicon -alley, announced plans to build two chip8making plants in India for up to C?.2 billion using technology from GermanyJs Infineon )echnologies !G. L'ur focus is clearly the Indian market, although we plan to export out of the country as well. )he growth in mobile phones and computers has enabled the demand for chips,L said 6even -erma, chairman of <industan (emiconductor #anufacturing. #obile phone subscribers in India rose 3F percent in #arch from a year earlier to 033 million. (till, only about 02 percent of IndiaJs 0.0 billion people own a mobile phone, compared with around I2 percent in $hina.

L)he global demand for chips will always go through a cycle of oversupply and shortages, but the potential in India is going to be huge in the years to come. :hether we make it or not, India will continue to buy chips,L -erma said. CONS/MPTION S/RGE India spent about C4.F billion on semiconductors in 4112, and demand is estimated to exceed CI3 billion by 4102, according to a study by the India (emiconductor !ssociation and research and consultancy firm Frost / (ullivan. Furthermore, the study says electronic e5uipment consumption should surge to CI3I billion by 4102, more than 01 times spending of C4F.4 billion in 4112. LIt is ust an enabler that was badly re5uired for the semiconductor industry to take off in India,L !lok 'hrie, managing director of !#6 India, said of the government push. LIt will help establish semiconductor manufacturing in India.L !#6 is a technology partner to the local (emIndia consortium, which has said it planned to set up a chip8making facility in India with an investment of CI billion over the next five years. IndiaJs semiconductor design industry had revenues of CI.I billion in 4112 and employed about G2,111 people. )hat is expected to increase to C?I billion in revenue and over GF1,111 employees in 4102, the India (emiconductor !ssociation said. In February, )aiwan (emiconductor #anufacturing $o. %td. ,)(#$., the worldJs top contract chip maker, opened an office in "angalore to support its customers with design activities in India. ()#icroelectronicsJ Indian chief told 9euters in February that headcount in its Indian chip design centre would be raised to I,111, from 0,G11 now, in the next three years. LIf India can do the chip design work, it can take care of the manufacturing part as well, especially when labour costs in India are still 01804 percent lower than $hina,L said A.(.

#anufacturing, a word generally speaks volume, but, there is tendency to see manufacturing as increasingly a developing world activity. :hile it is true that many products can be manufactured cheap in the developing world, about G2 per cent of global manufacturing still takes place in the advanced economies, compared to about 01 per cent in $hina. )here is a temptation to write manufacturing off on the grounds that our natural resources and services industries can assure a healthy economy for all. )heoretically, this argument may work , but, not in practice. #anufacturing does matter. It is easy to forget how pervasive manufactured products are in our lives. From food, water, clothing, shoes, furniture and building materials to pharmaceuticals, automobiles, aircraft, computers, )sets, )elephones / #obiles, chemicals, plastics and, for that matter, newspapers. )oday, many manufactured products have a high content of what we call intangibles + design, software, engineering, patents, marketing expertise, research and development. It is these activities that generate many of the good obs in manufacturing. "ut for intangibles to have value, there ultimately has to be a manufactured product. )hough India banks heavily on its services sector for growth, the manufacturing sector too plays a significant role in the Indian economy, contributing nearly 03 per cent to the G6* ,in 411381G.. &ncouraged by an increasing presence of multinationals, scaling up of operations by domestic companies and an ever expanding domestic market, the Indian manufacturing sector has been averaging a H per cent growth in the last four years ,411?8 1F., with a record 04.I per cent in 411381G. India is fast emerging as a global manufacturing hub. "e it automobiles or computer hardware, consumer durables or engineering products, all are being manufactured by multinationals in India and is emerging as one of the most preferred location for ma or #N$s owing to lower cost, availability of intellectual human capital ,re5uisite knowledge base and governments continued efforts to liberalize most sectors bit by bit. CONSTR/CTION * ENGINEERING SERVICES2 )he global construction and engineering industry is valued at around 7(C4,111 billion as per one estimate and is expected to cross 7(C 4,211 in next I8? years. $onstruct industry, as elsewhere, is growing at a phenomenal rate in India. =)he construction industry in India is worth over 7( 6ollar 20 billion and accounts for more than 41 per cent of G6*.

It is a common misconcept that the leader is the one, who talks the maximum. It is often observed that in many group discussions all the members are out8talking each other without anyone listening what others are talking. )his approach is wrong. )he leader is one, who initiates discussion if the group is frozen in the beginning. )here is also another misconcept among the people appearing for G.6 that whoever speaks first will be udged as the leader. )his again is not true. If there are others who initiate discussion, then leader is one, who shows his stature by the content and 5uality of his contribution. )he leader is one who listens as much as heKshe speaks. )he leader also plays an important role in ensuring that everyone in the group gets a chance to speak. )he leader will also help in maintaining the psychological and emotional health of the group in the case of disagreements and controversies. )he leader must offer alternatives and solutions to the differences of opinion among the members. #embers in a group are usually under pressure. !n immature will build this pressure by being inconsiderate to other members of the group. (ome become argumentative, emotional and excited on one hand and on the other hand some become 5uiet, withdrawn and nervous. Interviewer looks for a balanced individual who is cool and composed, yet assertive to hold on to his own viewpoint.

!s far as possible, try to initiate the discussion in a convincing and sober way. %isten carefully, if someone else takes the initiative do not fight with that person for grabbing the initiative. In a G.6, the topic must be discussed from all points of view and all aspects must be taken into account before a final conclusion is reached. G.6 should not turn into a debate. Good and clear communication generally impresses. :ell thought out ideas, braced with facts presented logically influences the group and helps in bringing the group to your viewpoint. If someone interrupts you when you are speaking, ask the person to wait till you complete. If the interruption continues even then, give that person a chance to speak and you can resume from where you stopped, after the other person completes, "y giving, the other person a chance to speak, you gain marks and the other person loses marks for his continuous and incessant interruption. If there is a dispute among the participants, try to reconcile the differences by explaining to them as convincingly as possible the otherBs viewpoint. #ost of the time, the dispute is because of some misunderstanding. 6o not form local centers in the group by indulging in cross talk. :hile discussion on controversial topics, do not change your viewpoints after you have already taken a stand or viewpoint. )his type of fre5uent change of your views creates impression that you do not have concrete ideas and hence you can be easily influenced. (o, before speaking out initially, form your opinions and argue in favor of them in a cogent manner. If any participant is not speaking because of hisKher inhibitions, you must solicit hisKher opinions. )his creates an impression in the minds of the evaluators that you take the whole group with you in a democratic manner. (o, from the beginning, keep an eye on the Dtongue8tiedsB in the group. ;eep track of the time. )he time limit for the G.6 makes it essential to present the views briefly and lucidly. It is better and most advisable to stop the discussion about I1 seconds before the deadline and summarize the salient viewpoints of the group. Normally most of the people in a G.6 do not keep track of the time in their excitement to speak. (o, this is one are where you can score over others.

!ssertiveness is the ability to express your feelings honestly and to take charge of your rights responsibly.

Non8aggressive behavior is characterized by self8 denial, inhibition and anxiousness. !ggressive behavior, on the other hand, is characterized as being very expressive and self8enhancing at the expense of others.

In order to sell yourself, you should not lie or distort your answers. 9emember that no one is expected to know all the answers.

)here are certain typical 5uestions that you come across very often in the interviews.

(ome of them are listed below along with the suggested approach to tackle them. +5 Te"" !s #3o!t $o!rse"% D )his is a general 5uestion in which you can say almost anything about yourself. 7nfortunately, most of the interviewees use the opportunity to recount their bio8data, which is already there in front of the interviewer. *repare yourself so that you can tell about only those things, which are not mentioned in the bio8data such as your traits, special 5ualities, achievements and motivations. ! one or two sentence answers, which are normally given by interviewees, convey an impression that there is little to know about them.

It could reflect on your basic attitudes. )he best approach for such a 5uestion is to bring out not only the facts of parentage and background but also some of the good principles they have taught you. For example, while talking about this aspect, you may be able to say that you have been brought up in a disciplined atmosphere where punctuality, respect for elders etc. is a way of life. Aou may also state the human values like honesty, truthfulness etc. which you imbibed from your family background. Aou may also be asked to tell about your brothers and sisters. &mphasize their accomplishments and achievements. In all cases, it would be safe to talk of human values taught to you irrespective of your background. 95 Ho6 )o $o! spe ) $o!r sp#re ti(e D )his is a loaded 5uestion, which can give considerable clue to your personality. If your spare8time activities are reading, painting, cooking, listening to music and the like you are likely to be creative, introverted or a loner. If your sports activities are swimming, athletics, tennis etc. you are likely to be interpreted as a loner. 'ther games like football, hockey, cricket etc are likely to indicate you as a team man, who can get along well with people. Neither of these is right or wrong nor they are absolutely true indicators. )here are obs such as research, design 5uality control etc., which do not re5uire extroverts. Nobs such as sales, public relations, execution etc. re5uire a person with a high degree of interaction and team spirit. Generally, those who appear to be group oriented are likely to be preferred for most obs. !nother aspect of how you spend your spare time is whether you take on active or passive pursuits. If you were active, you would play games, go on sight seeing or undertake any activity that involves physical effort. *assive pursuits such as reading, listening to music


and so on sedentary obs such as doing desk work where as active person is preferred for obs, which involve travel or any predominant physical activity. ,5 1&$ )i) $o! c&oose $o!r p#rtic!"#r %ie") o% 6or8 D )his 5uestion is asked to know your temperament, attitude and personal 5ualities. It is advisable at this point to bring out your best 5ualities linking them with the ob. For example, you may say that you chose a sales ob because you are an extrovert and love traveling and that you en oy meeting people and this ob gives you the opportunity to do so. Never say that you are taking up this ob ust because someone has advised you to do so or that you are taking up this ob because you have no alternative. :hatever may be your reasons choosing a particular line, support and substantiate it fully, since you are now applying for the ob. :5 1&$ )o $o! 6# t to <oi t&is or'# i>#tio D 'rganizations are concerned about the cost of recruitment and training and would like to ensure that the candidate, who is recruited, is genuinely interested in the ob and the organization and is likely to stick on to the ob for a reasonable period of time.

It is important to understand the companyBs point of view.
