Hi, require a bit of help here. I have been working in a MNC in IT operations for over 2 years and now have received an opportunity to work in KPO MNC. Will joing KPO hamper me in anyways for getting into IIM OR any other top MBA college? I will be appearing for CAT in 2015.

Hello, I have an offer from a leading coaching institute for their English faculty position. How much salary can I expect? Do these institutes pay per class or have a fixed amount for the month?


I have a 3 years work experience in the the communications field. For the last one and a half year I have been working on my own venture. However, I have realized the need of an MBA to build credibility. I attempted CAT this year and got 50%. I wanted to know if there are colleges which offer executive education after 3 years of work experience.

Hi Puys,

I'm in a quandary here - I graduated and worked at an organization for a few months, then left it and started work at my second job, where I am currently, and have been for about a year now. I have only payslips from my first job, but will have complete documents (relieving letter etc.) from my current job if I were to enroll in an MBA program. 

In such a situation should I or shouldn't I mention my work experience from my first job at the interviews, given that I don't have a relieving letter? 

I have now already got one year gap after graduation. I want to give it a shot at cat 2015 this year. So the gap becomes 2 years. So is that gonna be a problem?

Hey Puys,

I have major dilemma, I had been on-site for 3 months to Canada in this march till may, the manager there loved my work and initiated talks with the VP to relocate me to Canada. It is still in progress but the process is getting delayed due to some reasons I don't know about. Should I wait for the relocation opportunity or dedicatedly work on my CAT preparations, If it happens the next on-site will clash with CAT exam for sure. 

I have just finished 2 years in mechanical core company. 

Please give suggestions, Last CAT I got 94 perc. So with more hard work I am hoping to reach more than 98. But because of the on-site I am unable to make firm decision. Which will be best option to go for?

1. Mainly sales. But if you are lucky, you may get some finance profile
2. Yes. Possible. Have to work really hard.
3. Many finance certifications exist. Depends on your area of interest.
4. I would guess more than 50% finance MBAs are engineers.
5. Ask on TAPMI thread. Yes.
