In the last 2-3 years, Newgen Software has aggressively recruited hundreds of graduates as well as experienced job seekers in the field of Sales, Business, Logistics, Technology, Marketing and Quality Control. It is hence emerging as a mass recruiter for CS/IT engineering graduates, specifically in the NCR region.
Due to increase in popularity of Newgen’s automated products and services, the demand for new employees, within India and outside, have increased exponentially. Earlier, the barrier of entry in software development was quite high and Newgen was never considered as a mass recruiter. They used to select a limited a number of fresh graduates from premium engineering colleges in NCR. Now, they usually take in 10-15 graduates from the same college. A dedicated Learning and Development Cell has also been active since couple of years.
New joinees go through a month of rigorous on-the-job training on various Newgen products and Newgen supported APIs (in case of Software Engineering batch). The process for training is pretty much similar in case of graduates from other fields as well, however, their curriculum might vary.
Procedure for Newgen Software placement (On Campus and Off Campus)
If it is a campus recruitment drive, an IT/CS background student should have a minimum of 60% in 10th, 12th and college to sit in the aptitude test. In case of off-campus fresh graduates or 1-2 yrs experienced personnel, someone from within the company can refer your resume to the HR department. The HR manager will then take the decision to send you an invitation to participate in the recruitment drive to be held on a specified date. The prerequisites are pretty much similar to that of a fresh graduate. Your experience in latest technology matters a lot!
After this, the recruitment process is pretty much similar for both, the candidate has to go through a common aptitude test. This test will consist of four sections. You will be provided with an OMR sheet to mark your answer. These sections are as follows: Quantitative Aptitude, Logical Reasoning, Communication Skills and Computer Skills. The level of each section would be medium to high and those studying regularly for aptitude tests can clear it easily.
You need at least 20-22 out of 30 questions correct to go through the next level. If you are selected, you would have to give a Psychometric Test. This round tests your mental stability and decision making skills. It consists of around 100 questions with no particular right or wrong answer. A normal individual with sound logical and deductive skills can easily clear the paper. Only thing that needs to be kept in mind with any kind of psychometric test is that all the answers should be consistent with one another.
The selected individuals are then intimated by call or mail to attend the next round of the placement drive. Usually, you are asked to come on the very next day for Technical Interview and HR round. Technical interview is driven by your past experience or your field of specialisation. You are usually asked to pick 2 or 3 subjects you are comfortable with. Please use discretion and prepare seriously as the interviewer is usually a Project Manager or a Group Head, who has vast knowledge of his field. He will grill you and might even ask you to write programs on algorithms ad hoc! This round usually takes 45 minutes to 1 hour and it is not uncommon for an interviewer to ask the candidate to provide multiple architectural solutions for common problems that might occur in banking system or even a postal office and how to automate them. You can prepare well in advance by studying Newgen Interview Questions with Answers
asked in different recruitment drives to increase your chances of selection.
After clearing the Technical Interview round, your selection is 90% assured. In HR interview, they usually check your communication skills as most of Newgen’s clients are outside India. You have to be seriously handicapped in communication skills to fail this final leg! It usually takes 15- 20 minutes as they verify your mark sheets and certificates. It is advisable to bring your certificates, in case of any achievements in the field of sports or other extra curricular activities. Your interests and academic or non-academic achievements should be backed up with relevant certificates or medals.
If you have been selected, you will get a call or a confirmation mail from the HR Dept., specifying your joining date as well your CTC. We wish you all the best for you placement preparation and hope that using the above resources on prepnode you will be able to get through the placement process with flying colours.
