Aptitude was my problem and my Attitude was their problem!

I sat for placement for one of the so-called Dream Companies!

Not sure who dreams to join these companies, to call it a dream company, lol. 

Back to the point,

After clearing the aptitude and coding tests, the third round was a very generic round, in which I was asked questions from different domains including cloud, networks, web, mobile, internet of things, etc.

I answered every question with the understanding I had by that time. To my surprise, I cleared that round.

In the fourth round, probably the second last round I was asked a lot of questions in the theoretical aspects of coding.

Surprisingly, I did not know any answers.

Then their question turned out to be, “How did you come through your coding round?”, suspicious!

Then they asked me to write a logic for identifying the prime numbers!

I gave them the O(sqrt(n)) solution. They thought I learnt it by heart. It was quite a common problem though.

Then they jumped back to the point, that I did not know any answers to their theory questions.

They asked me what I know other than coding. I said I know very little of the theory that was taught in college and most of my strength stays in applying what we learn to a project.

Then, she questioned what all languages I use to develop the projects.

I started listing all that was used, including Ionic, Angular, Firebase.

Never expected to get hit here.

Her, next question was “What’s FireVase?”.

Instead of answering, I said, ” It’s Firebase!” and answered further about it.

Everything went well and I waited for my result with full confidence.

The staff who knew me very well from my college came to me and asked what happened inside. I wasn’t sure of what she’s trying to say, but she said I’m not going to the next round due to my attitude.

That was a complete breakdown!

I learnt that not everyone takes your correction as an improvement. It’s perceived differently.

Every person in their interview would have experienced a similar situation.

That one point that you would have never expected becoming your rejection point!

It’s either you or the interviewer who has the problem.

Thoughts?

I take it as an improvement for my next companies!
