My GE/PI Experience

Date:20th Feb 2:00 pm slot

Reached the college at around 1:50 Pm & found nobody on the campus, then security personal informed me to go to 6th floor, room no. 606. I did not how to knot the tie & met amyrocket, he helped me. When I entered the romm saw lot of tensed, bored, relaxed, I-don't-care type of aspirants. At 2:00 PM one of the seniors announced that the previous batch's interview has been long so the 2 PM slot will be delayed.

Next, they showed some videos about SIU, SIBM Bangalore college life. The college video was very inspiring, we had Q & A with seniors after that. There were 2 second year students & 3 first years students, very helpful, they tried best to calm our nerves.

Finally, at around 3:30 PM, process for our slot started, we were split into 3 groups each having 11-12 aspirants. First there was document verification & then at around 4 we were sent for our GE process. Unfortunately for our GE we had 4 panelists & all of them were industry personals. We were 8 aspirants, we weer divided into 2 groups & given a GE topic.

GE topic : Build a new business idea which would target old age people.

We had a minute for clearing the doubts, 10 minutes to discuss about the topic & 3 minutes to present the idea to panel. Our team initially did brainstorming session & came up with some ideas & finally decided on humanoid + social club. I gave suggestion that only two will take notes & they will present it to the panel. We prepared well for the topic & had structured our business plan. All this while, the panelists were walking around, looking & peeking at us. First amyrocket presented his team ideas, then from our team one of the guy presented the idea & he handled it pretty well. There were many questions asked but he kept his cool. After presenting we were given 5 min to summarize the GE process in a sheet NOT the product but the process.

My PI was bizarre to say the least. Since I had to go to the dame panelists for the interview I was expecting some drilling. But it never happened. There were not even a single HR questions other than Tell me about yourself & why you want to be in this institution. Every other questions revolved around my personal life. Panelists were smiling whole of the interview. The questions were asked from my hairstyle to my girlfriend, family, native place, languages I know, my hobbies. I did pretty well in the interview. The panelists were amazing, they just want to know you better.

After the interview process, met with few more seniors, took a campus tour. Campus is really nice & so are the people. Seniors really handled the process very well. Overall very happy with things went.

Hoping for the best. March 14th seems too far!!

Thanks all & seniors for the support.
