I got a job!

I have got a job through oncampus placement, despite of still being in the third year of my B.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering, and an year more to go till I complete my engineering. No prizes for guessing the company which recruited me.
Everything happened so suddenly, I dont even remember half of what all the experience was. The process was very stressful. “The company’s” HR department reached the college at 9 AM sharp and started off with the Pre-placement talk. Next was the aptitude test of 30 minutes….. I cleared that and then were the feared Group Discussions…. the topic was “Aping the west”… GD results were out in one hour… during that time I was roaming around here and there since I had nothing else to do, I couldnt make myself concentrate anywhere else. Finally the results were out and then I was in.. The next was the HR and Technical personal interviews. The HR and tech interviewers were in the “interrogation” room, throwing technical and HR bombs at me all at once… the interview lasted almost 20 minutes… then the most stressful 5 hours of my life followed during which I had to wait for them to finish off the interviews and declare the result. Finally at 6 PM, the HR team of “the company” walked into the lecture theatre and spent a good 20 minutes chit chatting with the students, without declaring the result, with the list in their hand, escalating the tension further for me…. and then they decided to start off reciting the names…. I heard my name and my heart stopped. I couldnt believe my ears…
I still dont believe that I have a job, I am just 20 years old…. I still walk up to the notice board to see my name in the list {after every 2 hours} just to make sure that it wasnt a dream…. my brain feels weightless. I dont know how to react. I cant jump with joy, everything seems normal…. serene

I lost a website and all my blog entries when my webhost suddenly decided to go out of business. However I restored the most recent backup that I had, but the rest of the site shall take some time to come up

  1. First of all — CONGRATS!!!!!! I think a treat will be due. πŸ™‚ Hope that the treat is soon. πŸ™‚ So now you are also entering the corporate world! Have you told you more abt. your job, where you will be stationed, what’s the position, etc???

    Yup..that’s great for 20 yrs old, this company is a good place to start. πŸ™‚ All the best to you!!

    sorry to hear abt. your website, was wondering what was the cause of the change of template. πŸ™„ Hope you get everything restored with your previous template the way you want. πŸ™‚

  2. Geeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!! thanks Poonam. you’re such a sweetheart!
    Yep a treat is due, definitely. anywhere you say, anytime you want….. its still almost an year left for me to enter the corporate world….. I have just cleared my third year college and the entire fourth year of slogging out is till remaining. the job starts in May 2006, the first three months shall be the induction training at hyderabad, which is supposed to be the toughest and most comprehensive training in the world for any IT firm….. the job profile is for software development, and initially the first year shall be spent in hyderabad, and after that they can send me anywhere in 48 countries… the position is “fresher engineer” or something similar, basically its a slang for fresh computer engineers, just out of campus. and by the time I join “the company” I shall be 21 yrs and some months old….

    yep will get back to my previous website and template soon and even restore the previous website name, just some problems at the service provider’s back end…..

    Thanks for you wishes, everybody is happy around me…. Life is suddenly looking up!

  3. I am glad dizzy! You deserve it! πŸ™‚

    When I was in college, I used to work as an intern for quite a big company (Fortune 100), Caterpillar, and they have lots of their development work given to your company. So you never know, you might end up over this way.

    Btw – later on two or three years down the line if you want to come to the US, let me know as I still have those contacts from your company that can really help and get you here. πŸ™‚

    Good to see that life is looking up for you. i know that you were down for a while but i bet its a great feeling knowing that you have one year left of college and your job life is set. Its really a great feeling. πŸ™‚

    Take care and all the best!
