(HR)

remember one thing, by writing tiss, you are also avoiding about 50k engineers who will be taking up jmet the very same day.. its a gamble of sorts...

all the best... :cheers:

hey guys,

its been quite some time since i posted on this forum. hows it going/ ?
man i really miss tiss days.. all gone now... :-(

so how is vijay punjab ? all is well ? i heard they have really hiked the beer rates , not to mention the tandoori chicken has become stale nowadays..

recently attended the 'dharohar' didnt get to meet the super juniors, but yea juniors were there. it was fun all right.. dam! im jealous of my junis.. they are all chilling on the other side.. u know come to think of it. the grass is not always greener on the other side.. cuz during my 2 years at tiss (08-10), never once i wanted to be on the other side..

2 years was like a breeze on an old yezdi bike.. all righty.. i gotta move my bottoms and yank up the excels..

regards,
AJ

Hi seniors,
Are the calls given in proportion to the general and reserve category seats ???
Any last minute preparation topics/ suggestions ? :)

thanxxx
Rhucha


for the batch of 2008-10, 3600 calls were given for 65 seats,
for the batch of 2009-11, 1400 calls were given for 49 seats,
i am not sure how many calls have been given this time,
last minute preparations should be avoided (or kept light), there isn't much that u can do now, that you couldn't do till now :|
good luck to all of you!!

Hi guys!!! Any kashmiri migrant out here who's qualified for gd/pi.
Seniors could u plz throw some light on selection process for km?
Thanks.


Hi Naina, there is no such quota as KM at TISS, at TISS we only have SC,ST,PH quotas. And certain seats are added over and above the capacity for OBCs.

Btw there is alot of confusion regarding SEZs laws.. :-? Can the seniors tell us the current status of labour laws in SEZs? Do some states have exemption or have those exemptions been taken back?


See guys, Just like there are different economic exemptions & rules applicable to the SEZs , there are different labour laws applicable in these SEZs.
There obviously are certain exceptions (eg: women working in the industry etc.), if you guys google for it you should be able to get relevant documents..
i Shall in the meanwhile try to get hold of a relevant document..
Frankly speaking, i doubt if these topic would be asked in your interview, but yes having this knowledge can give u certain brownie points in the interview (if ur able to bring it out in the interview), nevertheless don't fret over this too much... stick to the basics. :thumbsup:

Guys,

My apologies for not being active on the TISS forums. Also apologies on behalf of my useless batchmates , (just kidding!)

ok guys for the GDPI, hmmm.. there wasn't much that i went about asking and i didnt do much of head scratching etc. But yes let me list down certain questions that must be clear in your head before you kick off:

1. Why do u wana join TISS, why not some other B-school?
2. Are u looking for placements at TISS (say no!, else u r history)
3. Why HR? & why from TISS? why not MDI or XLRI?or saw the new thingy at IMI or IMT?
4. Why shifting from your present (whatever you are doing) to HR?
5. What do u know about the course at TISS (HRM&LR;), ? (please be prepared about the course, pedagogy, and lotta other stuff that are really unique).
6. Why should we take you ?
7. Your strengths & weaknesses that may/will aid you in being a successful HR professional?!
8. Questions on family background, gaps in study years (if any).
9. Have you been in touch with senior(s)? (i had said yes, & it had worked, but remember : "half knowledge is dangerous"), ponder & decide..!
10. Questions on your work experience! (wherever you are working)
11. Question on why u dont wana work before further studies( if u are a fresher).
12. Where do u see yourself 5 years from now? etc.
I will stop here for the time being, 13 being an unlucky number !
but seriously guys, the system of selection here is so robust that its very difficult to fake it and make it! be genuine, gotta be genuinely passionate about TISS, HRM & LR, & you gotta have a certain Social angle to your intentions. Cuz when u pass out you definitely will be a more socially sensitive manager. IT may all sound glamorous and puffed up to all of you now, but trust me, 2 years in the system & i am laughing at myself now, it works & you will just not know that its working! nevermind, all this, trust me TISS is the best thing that can happen , everything here has a magical feeling, the faculty, the campus, the pedagogy, the girls , the folks from other courses, the politics, the 2 years, the hostel life, the dam green campus, and of course (you are in mumbai!), i can just go on & on .. shall refrain from carrying you all away to the wonderland. Lets keep our feet grounded, the time will come when you can fly!
REgards,
AJ

Some motivation to all you guys : go thru this link,

Careers360 - Think higher education! Survey: India's top B-Schools. Also, schools that missed out!

Caution: Do not associate TISS with any such ranking, but i for certain know that many of you are into this entire ranking phenomena, so this post is just for those who believe in rankings etc.

To be frank TISS is above all such trivialities of the B-school circuit, & this you shall realize only when you are a part of TISS
