Would you suggest quitting job of 2 years to prepare for CAT? Am changing my field altogether to HR and am really passionate about it. My current experience has been enriching however it's irrelevant to the field I am moving to. My current working hours doesn't permit me to dedicate time to study. Please give me your thoughts.

@shabaru Hi, quitting ones job to prepare for CAT doesn't make much sense because one will be bombarded with questions during one's interview and it will be expected to tactically deal with these questions.

Hi, No comments on any of the colleges. Please consider the fact that the profiles offered in the colleges rather than the names of the companies are far more important. Almost all the good companies visit the campuses during placements, however, not all colleges are offered the same profiles as offered in the top ten colleges.

Is it bad for a person to have more than 24-30 months work ex when it comes to placements for MBA in HR? Seniors plz help.

In my batch (2009-11), I had  an experience of 40 Months (3 years and 4 months), one of my batch-mates had an experience of over 7 years, a couple of others had an experience of 24-30 months- for none of us the experience proved "bad"

Well interactions with people will not suffice. However, I advise you to read up a few Motivation Theories from Organisational Behavior, which an employer can use to keep his/her employees motivated to perform.
