As part of the placement process for the year 2023-24, Samyukta Shankar, Samiksha Yadav, Kritika, and Anabhra Mishra (Batch of 2024) have been selected as Legal Counsels for Wipro.
The process began with the selection of CVs. Students who got through then had to take a timed test on General Knowledge, with 25 objective-type questions to be answered in 10 minutes.
Upon selection based on the test results, students were shortlisted for the penultimate Extempore round where they had to speak for up to 3 minutes based on any topic of the panel’s choice. They were given 30 seconds to prepare for the same.
A select few were listed for the interview process based on the previous round. The final four candidates were then chosen for placement with the company.
The newly-placed fourth years got candid with Team BluePencil.
Recruiters are looking for a well rounded person, they want someone who fits their culture especially in an in-house role. It is important to show the recruiter sides of your personality which a two page resume cannot. An interview is the only place where you get have a one-on-one with the recruiter. Use it as an opportunity to gauge the recruiter, ask questions about the business, the quality of work, scope of growth etc. to ascertain if the place is a good fit for you.Samyukta Shankar
It is important to not script HR questions, know why you want to join a certain organization and being honest about your expectations. It is also recommended to not orchestrate areas of interest in your CV and to be thorough with your CV. Know the company well and be sure to bring out your hobbies during the HR round.Anabhra Mishra
The selection procedure of WIPRO revolved around 3 key stages- Question Round, Extempore, & the final Personal Interview Round had questions broadly regarding 4 aspects- CV, HR, the company & from areas of interest mentioned in the CV.Kritika
The entire process of Wipro taught me the importance of a smile. You can only put on a smile when you feel confident and you feel confident when you know you’ve given it all. My advice to the upcoming batches would be to experience a little of everything, mooting, ADR, working in various organizations, extra curricular and be thorough with whatever you’ve done. At the end of the day, knowing yourself and your work in and out will make you stand out and will help you lead the conversation in your interview.Samiksha Yadav
The BluePencil team congratulates the selected few and wishes them luck in all future endeavours!
