The Blue Interview

I applied for a summer internship to a fairly big company with offices in almost all continents. The very next day, I received an email to undergo a “Cognitive Assessment” test. I googled and found nothing with regards to the test except for a reddit post asking what the test would entail. I realized this was not going to be anything technical and will test my aptitude more than anything else. However, I was in for a surprise.


It eerily reminded me of the aptitude questions that most Indian companies have for their entrance test. And I am fairly certain people clear those after practicing for a couple of months. Not a big fan for using an aptitude test for weeding out capable applicants for a technical internship.
