As an engineering student, we all commit blunders.I am special, so I committed not one,not two but six deadly blunders.This blog is just a listing of them that how you do wrong things in right places.
Name of Company: Taragana
Venue: Somewhere in Kolkata
Sin: Cleared the first round of aptitude and programming with perfect TEAM WORK.In the next round, we were expected to write a Java program to prove our programming skills.The program was a tricky one.I did the almost correct solution in first attempt
.Then got a spark of brilliance.Slashed the program, and wrote a more complex version, using pointers in JAVA.(Pointers in Java is forbidden)So my entry in Taragana was forbidden.
Name of company: Connectiva
Venue: Somewhere in Sector V, Kolkata
Sin:Actually in the prelims, i had cleared 4 Rounds, to reach the finals.I needed to clear more 3 to get the desired jobs.It was supposed to be a grueling Technical round, based on Unix,Dbms.Post lunch,when my turn arrived, I was confidant of making it, as all people before lunch made it to the next round.Had a good session of interviews,as I answered most of them correctly and was satisfied.Now you might be thinking where is the blunder……The blunder was that I didn’t knew the name of CEO of the company.So they booted me out in the technical round.
Name of Company: Parasoft
Sin:Again had a session of perfect TEAM WORK.However only I get selected for some unknown reason.The entire campussing was abandoned for reasons, to which I had no role to play.
Name of Company: Microland
Venue: In a marriage Hall, somewhere in Kolkata
Sin:A morning marked with hardships was going perfectly for me when I sailed through aptitudes,Gd’s.Then came the turning point, in the HR cum technical interview.The interviewer was quite impressed initially.But later she got pissed off when she found my career aspirations to be WEB Designing.I couldn’t convince her that I was ready for embracing Networking, which was the domain of the company.She tested me with some flat questions on Networking to which I answered positively, until I forgot the Exact name of LAN wire, used to connect the pc’s in an organization.She forgot to call me for the next round!!!!!
Name of Company: Xorient
Venue: Somewhere in Kolkata
Sin:Cleared the aptitude round.Quite surprised.Then the next round was supposed to be a GD round.My GD group seemed to be quite a timid one, until they started.Just could not compete with human beings, who throw up 5 stats / sec.So got rightly kicked out at the right time.
Name of Company: Mindfire
Sin:Cleared the aptitude with confidence.Cleared the first technical round, comfortably.The second technical was a cakewalk, compared to the first.So where did I commit the sin??No, this time I didn’t commit any.My destiny did.Got negative results four days later.
Now I am waiting for Sin Seven…………………..
You might be wandering, whats wrong with me?????Even I am thinking same as you are……..But when all odds are against me, I always find a bit extraaaaa…………….
So what Sins have you committed????????
