My dear friends all your best wishes came true!! 😀
I got 2 jobs.
1st one in an MNC. And the 2nd one with a higher pay but not an MNC.
Still have 1 year of college left…..so the decision to join which company can wait for now.
Multinational Corps definitely come with huge advantages with offices all over the world, greater corporate exposure globally and more scopes of growth.
The second company offers a higher salary but lesser number of business units all over the world and more work load.
And YESS people I cleared those aptitude rounds. The terrifying 10th grade maths problems.
60 questions. 60 minutes.
Negative marking for each wrong answer.
Its like these companies are playing hard to get……’Show me baby how much you want me!!’
Then there are the essay writing rounds or the group discussions. If you clear those, you move on to the Technical round where they ask engineering questions. And after clearing that comes the HR round which tests your personality, presence of mind and problem solving abilities.
Before leaving, the people from the MNC told our professors, that out of all the colleges they visited all over the country, the girls who got selected from our college are the best and perfect for the corporate world.
Even though the number of boys selected was more than the number of girls……..they weren’t too impressed with the boys……..every boy had good grades…..but apparently weren’t prompt enough….. the kind of promptness or decision making abilities you need in the corporate world.
I too have noticed this mostly in project work or labs and assignments…..I mean most boys I see around these days aren’t bold enough. Its the girls who take the initiative and get the work done. Whereas, in case of any problem, the boys just ‘accept it’ and work around it. They never try to solve it.
I get really surprised when I see boys act like this.
Anyways I really don’t know what to do now.
All my life I’ve been running after something…… and now…..just free. Its feels really weird. Still got 2 more semesters….. but the only aim now is to pass :p :p
We are over that phase when we used to give a damn about marks!! 😉
Will probably be going for MBA……but not right now!! 😉
I was thinking of joining a cooking class coz its time I actually know how to cook something.
Then I was thinking of joining a hair styling course :p :p
My parents were just shocked hearing this!!
‘Why don’t you do a course on Cloud Computing, or just get certified by Oracle or Microsoft. What use a hair styling course will be to you??’
But I really haven’t done anything for myself…..in the longest time.
Have been going to some pre-nursery school since I was 1 year 10 months old!! At 3, I joined a real school. And it has been going like that ever since.
I think its time I have a break!! :p
The IT industry is a very good place for women.
It has extremely strong Women Protection Office Cell. The work is also comfortable. The offices look great 😉 And definitely, the exposure of the corporate world is huge. Its truly a privilege to get the opportunity to work here.
But still somehow I’m not getting the excitement…….the whole process of writing software programs for 7-8 hours a day…..already seems kinda tiring.
One of my friends wanted to get into the same company as her boyfriend. Some of the IT companies encourage their employees getting married. Means more interest in work and longer hours at the office.
They bear a huge cost of their marriage and also pay full cost of having a baby in the most expensive hospitals of the city.
But my friend got selected in another company. And both of them are pretty sad about it……I hope she gets in the next time she applies.
I really do believe you know…..too much studies makes a person go MAD.
I truly wouldn’t want my kids to be the genius type.
Breaking things, running after them with books…..I can handle that……but all those kids who sit all day with TEXT books…….scary!!
All those kids in our school who would study 14 hours a day, had 99% attendance,
wrote down everything the teacher said……. ultimately they lost their tenacity at the end moment. Didn’t get into good colleges.
I had around 60% attendance in high school. Only used to attend the lab classes :p :p Do the same thing in college as well 😉
I spend a lot of time at home. Have fun with my parents and friends.
And it is alright!!
I’ve a friend in college. She gets around 9.7 CGP in every semester. Gets up in the middle of the night and starts solving sums on the FREAKING BEDCOVER!!
And she didn’t bag a job.
In an engineering college you’ll hardly find anyone who’s here only for the ‘knowledge‘. Everyone’s here to be a part of the corporate world.
You can’t get stuck on to any topic for long.
Its about learning maximum things in the minimum time.
In job interviews, no one gives a damn about your hard earned semester grades. Its only about the variety of things you know and how well you can apply it!!
We are born only once. Atleast as far as I remember 😉
So its very important to not give too much of a damn about anything. And do EVERYTHING you enjoy.
That’s the most honorable thing you can do for yourself!!
Btw in 9th grade I had taken a quiz ‘What were you in your past life‘……and I got the result, ‘Engineer from MIT‘.
So the engineering phenomena has been chasing me through livesssss 😛 😛
I really want to do interesting stuff now. Including spending a lottttt of time in the blog.
I’ve never felt so free since…….I was born :p
I just want to learn new things, other than studies.
But I was also thinking of doing a certified course on website development. And learn some new language
Btw the shittiest thing has happened!!
My laptop is dead. I didn’t even take backup of a lot of things and now I’m just stuck!! A lot of business stuffs are stored over there. And until my laapy gets resurrected back to life……I’m just sitting idle!!
And my phone is also half dead!! :p :p
When you are in trouble…… it just comes from all sides!!
Gotta buy a new phone.
A phone is like an extension of my soul.
It knows more about me than anyone else. It helps me pass the semesters. Provides entertainment. Keeps me connected to the world. Answers all my questions, no matter how silly. Even takes pictures of me…..which no one else does!! -_-
Basically selflessly devotes itself to me. :p :p
I’m not addicted to my phone. Not even obsessed with it. I can go on hours even without seeing it once.
But I know its there for me. Taking care of me. At the end of the day, I’m gonna fall asleep beside it.
I really love my phone!!
My heart just bleeds when I see even a tiny scratch on it.
I see how my friends abuse their phones.
Stomping it on the table. Letting other people touch it!! I can never do that, I’m just possessive. There’s nothing to hide in my phone, I don’t even have a freaking lock………..I’m just afraid if they manhandle it or leave a scratch.
I’m extremely sad that inspite of all these I still couldn’t save my phone. 😉 Immediately have to get a new one.
Anyways, my relatives still can’t believe I’ve grown up so much to have a job.
I don’t blame them, I too am having a hard time believing it!!
But my parents are too fine with it.
‘Its time you realise how grown up you are now. And act like it too!!‘
‘Of course!! That’s why I’m even thinking of getting married. 😉 ‘
Now how come I see them rolling their eyes huh?? :p :p
Is there anything called selectively growing up??
Its either the whole deal. Or no deal. 😉
My business will always be my biggest passion.
But I worked very hard to get the jobs.
And want to learn a lot from it.
And also give back to my best of abilities.
This engineering life and the corporate ambience has given me a lot. I hope to help the society, the world in general with my small contribution.
Only after coming back from my 2nd interview I realised how physically and mentally exhausted the last 6 months have made me.
But from now on……..its only about fun!! And a new phase.
I’m extremely grateful to all of you for being with me through this phase of my life. Had started this blog while I was half way through 2nd year at college.
All those encouraging words, so much motivation and such LOVE…….
It was like my fuel.
Just kept me going.
I knew I couldn’t fail because so many people in the world are waiting to hear a good news from me.
And my time at the blog has truly brought a change in me…….for the better 🙂
So thank you all for the love and belief you’ve shown in me. I’ll always be grateful and overwhelmed.
And I too hope my blog has been able to help anyone out there, even if only in the form of a smile on a bad day…….just like this blogging community has done for me 🙂
Soooo yesterday I was watching tv till late night.
And every 30 minutes a thought would creep up my mind that, ‘Damn I’m wasting my time like this!! I should be studying!!‘
And then I would remember, ‘Damn I don’t have anything to study.‘
Well technically I’ve……but we don’t don’t bother!! 😉
Btw I’m on Instagram!! 😀 😀
mithaiz is my id 😉
I hope to interact with you all who are in insta, and get to know you guys better because pictures speak a 1000 words!! 🙂
